Saturday at the track, my car did something that was extremley annoying. After my I would come out of the water box and lift, and kick it into neutral, it would die. It woudl re-fire right away, I would give it some throttle, and more than once, it would die again. Then it would refire again, and stay running and be fine, til I would lift after the finish line, then it would die again, but not every pass. I checked fuel pressure, right at 7 1/2 lbs, float levels were also fine. I also could not find any loose wires.

Could it be due to the timing not being locked out? Or is it something else? All I know for sure is, when you are getting ready to stage for the final round in a race and the car dies before you get to the tree, it kinda messes up your routine.

Could the rear float be a little too high causing gas to spill out of the rear vent? Or maybe missing the rear vent tube in the main body?
