I'm trying something out. I going to try and share my DATA from my runs in North Wilksboro. Let me know if you get the spreadsheet and the charts.

If you can open this you'll see that my biggest problem is reaction time. And on my last 2 runs I shifted at 4000 instead of revving to 5000. I guess my WEBER setup is starving the engine above 4000. Live and Learn!

Car Model*: More than I should have...
I can see it fine. It looks like you’ve been bitten by the bug as well. :wink:

My lights were my biggest downfall. The car was pretty consistent.

I talked to Taylor about Clay City. Fingers crossed. Hopefully you’ll get the overheating issue figured out on his Barracuda. Are we gonna have a professional videographer at Clay City...? :D
See you at the next race!

Taylor's brother Steve worked on the Barracuda last weekend. He flushed it 4 times, twice with Prestone flushing liquid. It's not perfect but it doesn't seem to be overheating anymore. Fingers crossed that all the flushing didn't find a leak!

i can load the spreadsheet on my Andriod notebook.

Your times are close to what my '65 Dart was doing a few years ago. I also had carb issues, but mine were with an Edelbrock 500avs.
