please explain this? a 650 DP is extremely responsive,even on a 283 with 3.08 gears?
That depends on how it is tuned. He may have way too much coming in from the accelerator pumps, or too early, or not enough, or too late, or too long/short duration. The joys of running that much pump on a heavy car with stock stall and mild gears...
