Congrats on the build-it does look and sound good!

From a fellow 410 sprint racer, can I give you some advice that you've probably already heard?

First, with a injected motor on alcohol, don't let it sit there and idle cold with the fuel valve on. You are just washing the cylinders with fuel and it will never warm up. You need to close the shut off valve till rpms start climbing and let it run lean for a few minutes and warm up any time you are just idling the engine. Noticed your temp gauge hadn't moved yet-even with some playing around in the yard. Being put under a load when cold is one of the hardest things on sprint car engines. Getting it up to temp before shutting off will also help to evaporate the excess fuel out of the oil.

Second, please stop being stupid and starting the car without even having your seatbelts on. I do start mine without my helmet sometimes, but I don't normally go horsing around either. Without the belts is a big no-no! Take it from someone who has had a throttle stick when starting the car and making a run down a deserted road. It scares the crap out of you! By the time you correct from almost going in a ditch from instinctively hitting the brakes (with no RF brake) and think to turn off the switch, you travel a long ways!

Best of luck with your racing!
