Starting different after timing set?

Got a question, I reset the timing on my 406 SBC and acceleration and idle improved, however, it seems to start harder than before. I often flood it trying to get it restarted after being off for a short (2-4 minute) period? This engine is set up to race, and I set the timing to 36 degrees at 3000rpm's. Any ideas?
