No no super racing for me, going in for surgery next wed and my racing is done. Not everyone understands the injection/primer. Carb you jump in and go race so anyone can drive it now.

Am I allowed to guess? Want to guess what an alky carb picks up going from 114 rollout to 108? LOL

On the alky, love it. Never get the car over 180 degrees in eliminations. Have had the car double entered and triple entered putting 2 or 3 runs on the car within a 20 minute span. Fuel it and go!! On all the motors we have tore down, never have I seen any signs of alcohol causing any effect to the motor.
