strip use

Strictly race usually uses no vacuum advance. For strip street use the vacuum port on the passenger side of the carb. It is designed to not advance at idle. When on the strip the throttle is wide open and there is not enough vacuum to advance the distributor. Your main concern is total mechanical advance. Should come in at 1300 rpm and be all the way in by 2500 rpm. Set total time at 36 to 38 degrees.
