The Holley btw is a 6211 spread bore, and now that I think of it, something is wrong with the secondaries because I had 99 jets and it was still lean at WOT. I forget what I tried on it but didn't fix it. Now I do recall checking the air bleeds but didn't find a problem. It had worked for me but something seemed to happen sitting on the shelf.

The tires are 28's and that's what I have in my summit wish list, but different tires, m/t instead of Hoosiers. They take more air and are supposed to be better handling at higher speeds. Also supposed to be a compound that is better for no-prep. The m/t's get a little wild down at the far end. I had looked into smaller tires but don't think they have what I want any smaller.

On launch I've tried all different rpm's without much difference, no worry about the q-jet bogging. Shift at 6K, finish line rpm I don't know but I'm in third.
Young enough to learn ... too old to remember.
