I am having some fuel starvation or loading on quick lefts, motor sputters, and the car corners exceptionally well hence the login name, and with future plans of autocross next season I would like to fix the problem. Can jet extensions aid in other than straight line scenario? SS

Jet extensions might help, they are cheap enough to try, would have to change floats for fitment. Might try upping the float level. I would think maybe a longitudinal baffle would work. Would have to be custom made as Holley doesn't make them.

Might consider changing to EFI, not a problem then......

What kind of carb? Have you talked to any circle track guys? They make left turns on a fairly regular basis.

Roundy round racers are a good idea plenty of those guys around here. Carb is a 800 holley with center hung floats, EFI is not an option at this time, plenty of other things I'd rather spend a couple of K on. Thanks, SS

[img]graemlins/hurray.gif[/img] nice one onovakind! Couldn't help but laugh. Railing68, my dad raced late model stock cars on dirt in Lebanon, OR and on asphalt in Roseburg and even in Eugene at the old track. Anyway, our motor builder is in Coos Bay. I'll try to find his number for you tomorrow and repost. I'm sure he can help you. By the way, just so you know, to me your problem is a great one to have. I'm jealous!
