I agree, acceleration is the fun part, out of corners, up hills, etc.. Top speed is only good if you can use it somewhere safely. I just got rid of a camshaft that was only good for top end. Where can I use a 140 MPH Datsun, that takes forever to get there. My car does the low 12's in the quarter, b...

Hello everyone, I do not know about all of you but, I think we should pass on this weekend. The weather is looking REALLY crappy. If we only have three or four out, do we want to go?

Thanks Spencer, likely got lost in my computer, some where! Somebody decide, so we have a good roll call for who all is going. I really do not need to drive up there myself. No point in doing this if there are going to be a few cars. I AM going to drive the Datsun somewhere before month end (insuran...

Oh, just a note. When I was crew chief for the Specialty crew when we ran the 7 hour enduros at Westwood, in Tracey's 510, I calculated we were getting 4-5 MPG at race speed. I think Andy had 45's on that motor. They did consistant 16s' for lap times...even at night. I think we should not complain a...

HA! My avgas costs .91 cents per litre. And thats about 104 octane. The primary, do not forget, is only 32mm, and most, even high speed cruising is on the primary. The fuel mixture gauge lets me jet that carb pretty much spot on. LEAN IS MEAN! Some of you saw how light colored my tail pipe is. Most ...

It sounds like we have some people ready to go to Manning! The weather into next week looks not too bad. Keep fingers crossed. Are we going rain or shine? I will bring Toyota if it is raining.

Make sure you have NO dragging brakes! Tires inflated properly. Sometimes those old carbs are SSOOO lean, that you actually end up using so much more throttle and accelerator pump to get going, you use MORE gas. My turbo 2 liter with a very modified 36/36 Weber gets about 22-25 mpg., with lots of sp...

you would be VERY WISE to go to Specialty Enginering to get them set up. I can absolutely guarantee you that that will be money well spent. Those carbs will gve you tremendous performance, but , only if set up well. He also is checking you plugs at the same time to make sure that all is well at full...
