That track t roadster ain't no sleeper but one cool ride. I noticed your linkage on the carb is not on the large hole of the linkage. I had mine the same way and last year got the parts so it would work in the large hole and it made a huge difference in making the car much mellower and easier to drive. Give it a shot and see what you think.

You mean for a different leverage arm? My pedal doesn't have much throw, so I need a small leverage arm to assure full throttle. It is sensitive but controllable.

And it is a sleeper before I start the engine. Most folks think it is a 4 cylinder at car shows if the hood is closed.

I agree mine was just like that very sensitive but drivable, It just changed the driving experience a lot with the linkage change over.
