It definetly runs a little rich, always has. But I found it weird this issue just happened out of the blue one day if the tune up is the same.

Get a WB02 and tune your idle circuit to ~13.5 to 14:1. After that you can start tuning your cruise and WOT... and transitional points. It is either in tune or it isn't, no sense chasing unknowns.

I was able to get back to the track yesterday. Unfortunately tons of racers and poor track organization meant I was only able to get one pass in, but hey thats alright. I'm that much closer to the 12 second time slip I want pretty badly. I ran out of brake vacuum from taking so long to stage, so I was only able to stall the car to ~1900rpm. The shift flare caused a quick bump on the 6300 rpm rev limit on the 1-2 shift. Even with those mistakes I was still able to click off a 13.06.

4 Wide drag racing was a little weird, but once you're staged it doesn't really feel any different. I just tried to focus on what I needed to do.

Racetrack on the weekends, hauling scrap metal on the weekday. Survey says....3,640lbs with me in it, and 1/4 tank of fuel. This reconfirms that sunroof cars are heavy!
