Tonight, after installing my front shocks, (didn't have time for the rears) I was having tourble. After I launched, and the car got traction, the rpm's dropped a little as usual. But once they began to rise, the car would cut out. It would run up to 6k, where I would shift to 2nd. Then, after shifting, it would do the same. Once I shifted to third, it stopped doing it, even when I ran the rom's up in 3rd. I guess since I put the 90/10's up front, there was enough weight transfer to cause the gas in the fuel bowls to go to the back and starve it of fuel.

I tried launching on street tires at 2k, and it did not hesitate off the line; only when I shifted.

Since the shocks are the only thing that changed since last time, I guess they are all that could be the problem, right?

you definately need jet extentions in the rear bowl and also gas could be sloshing out of the vent tubes. put a extention on your vent tubes. good luck

I have the vent baffles (the white plastic things from the metering block) and I just put in a notched float and jet extensions. The float levels were a little low too, so I adjusted them. I don't know when I will be able to test it out, though.

Well, to be honest, I haven't seen much difference, but obviously, they made some difference if they caused the fuel slosh problem. Maybe they are acutally set at 60/40, who knows. It is hard to get them set right. No matter what position I put them in, they seem almost equally as hard to extend...
