ok i'm getting somewhere

Man my spring has been busy!! I did have the car at the track a couple weeks back, it was still rich but i did get the suspension working, 1 full turn on the upper right 4 bar and a little height in the right shock.

I also installed a Inovative motorsports LM2 wideband data logger. its bad ***! Im ready to go to the track again for some tuning. I also purchased 2 jet kits and 2 squirter cam kits

Looks like you are headed in the right direction compared to your last vid!

Does it always leave that crossed up? It looks like the rear suspension is steering it to the right on launch.

Yeah, a little bit of suspension tuning is in order. But when you get it all dialed in, its gonna rock!!

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!

just playing in the garage learning the software. I stepped up the squirters and was able to get the lean spike at higher rpms into the 18:1 range then i ran out of fuel. I will be going to the track for some test and tune this weekend.

somewhere

May have overlooked the float drop in the carb, I've recently found that by lowering the fuel pressure I was able to raise the float level thereby allowing more drop in the float off the line. Also cuts down on aeration of the fuel caused by too much pressure. If you have enough volume in your pump you might try going down, I run at 5 3/4 lbs and have eliminated that spike all together
