Anyone got any ideas? Maybe it's just the way the motor combo works is that it likes lots of timing? My understanding has always been that lower compression engines like more timing (like 8.5 and below) and higher compression engines use less. My motor being around 10:1 and with 60cc chambers I would think would not want to run a whole lot... I don't know.

Should I look in to "locking out" the distributor? Someone had mentioned that to me. But would locking it out be a good idea for vehicle driven on the street? It seems like it would have too much timing for low rpm throttle stabs.
