I have a 1980 camaro with a 305 when I get into the gas it has a long delay and if I keep it to the floor it would probably quit but if i am doing about 60 and nail it it does fine it will take of it is just that i can't sit at a dead stand still and floor it to burn the tires a bit

well it sounds like you have a carb problem you may need to make adjustments or rebuild it. it could also be your timing how many miles are on the engine and trany if the trany is tired you may never burn your tires i had the same problem with my rochester 4brl adjustments didnt work so i rebuilt it and the hesitation problem went away but still could't spin the tires and it was a new pretty tuff 350 but i uased the tired old trany that was in the car and once i rebuilt that then the car was balls spun the tires like crazy and check your plugs and wires make sure the car is not missfireing that could cause hesitation to and look into the carb and open the throttle and see if gas goes in right away hope this helps

Carb problems, sounds like the fuel bolw is emptying quickly (float lev probs) or the Jets are screwed. sometimes the squirter is clogged, but its cheap enough to rebuild the entire thing.
