thanks, i have seen that website and it does make sense, but there is no mention of how the plugs should look at idle before a wideopen pass ? still trying to learn what should be right !
Found this further in the article:
Top Area: This area is your idle circuit and for the racer real has very little meaning. However if your car is a street driven vehicle then we need to attempt to get this portion to a dark gray/tan color by tuning the AFR with the Air Bleeds and the four corner Idle adjustments until we get a clean crisp idle and total combustion of the fuel at idle. Keep in mind that the idle circuits are totally isolated from the rest of the carburetor and can be tuned with very minimal affect on the WOT position A/F Ratio.

Hope this help you.
