Sounds like your distributor advance curve is off somehow. You need to measure your advance throughout the rpm range and compare that to the recommended curve. It sounds like you don't have enough advance at low rpms based on what you have written. If you find that the static advance is OK and the high rpm advance is OK, then you may still have a rate of advance problem which you need to solve.
