I noticed on my last couple of runs that as I slowed down at the end of the track that the motor wants to quit as I make the turn off the track. Any ideas? Could I be running low on fuel pressure? Also on the return road the engine seems to surge a bit. I tried keeping the rpm at the same point on the return road and it the surge was quite noticeable.

Thanks,
Brian

Sounds like the float bowls are draining out on your carb. Need to look into your fuel delivery system.

I'm using a Holley blue with 3/8" fuel line?
Before I do anything I will check my float level tomorrow.
