Overall a pretty decent day both trucks drove on the trailer at the end of it all! After all the testing on Kasey's (the wife) truck it learned a new trick that I didn't like! It was running the bowl dry on the carb at about half track:mad: (you will see in the video) My truck ran pretty good but was scary lean again something that didn't show up in all the test passes! I raced back to back to back it came down to me racing for 1st and the truck was hot and didn't want to start so I had to forfeit and take 2nd to a truck I new I could beat:mad: My sister go put in charge of the video camera and didn't tape half of the races but here are a few!

Thanks Jeff & Greg!!! Still trying to get both trucks dialed in I'm sure we will get it figured out before to long. Yes Greg I'm glad I beat that orange Chebby too we have had our run ins with them guys in the past and they don't like to get beat. As for pulling vacuum the only way that truck could ever pull enough would be with a pump. I can't believe they let them run a vacuum class.

I had that same fuel problem last year! Checked the filters and lines thinking the same thing. Come to find out that the screens on the inlet of the pump iteself had trash it them that at low demand it would supply fuel all day, but as soon as the demand picked up it would close off and restrict the amount of fuel the pump supplied. Just something to check....
