Could you be alittle more specific about your problem.
What do you mean by 'drop rpms'?

I believe you are tuned to the wrong temperature. I've had many an engine that runs great when cool but the real world starts at 160 and up.

Default droppin idle speed

don't know if you have a spacer under the carb to isolate from the heat..might help. I have seen the fuel in the carb heat up and expand and dribble from the boosters and drop fuel into the engine..essentially causing a flooding situation. Look into the carb when the idle is dropping. Watcha see?
