This kinda goes on the same thing as mini2's question below. I took my car out and praticed with it last weekend. We got it to idle good and was running great so I put it on the track and it was gaining RPMS good, but when I would hit the corners it would die on me and I would have to let the clutch out to restart it. I thought it was fuel pump so I replaced it and tryed again and still same thing. I have a 50cc acelerator pump on my holley 500. I know thats to much but thats what we ran last year and it was great. I havent done anything to the car except cut weight. If anyone has any ideas please help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks,Trey

Are you running a racing fuel cell ? If so check the fuel pickup hose on the inside of the cell mine did that once and the hose was floating on top of the fuel.Also check float level and fuel pressure....towman

Yeah I am running a fuel cell, I have just replaced the pickup line in it with a better one that was in there. The other one just slid over it this screws on so I know it aint that. As for float level in carb we tried that all day and it didnt seem to be the problem. Thanks Trey

Is there anything else you can think of to tell me Im kinda lost with what weve got to go on.You say you have to let the clutch back out to restart it. Do you have the clutch in when cornering???? Or is that just the way you worded that .Just trying to help....towman

Yeah sorry that was just the way I worded it. When it dies I just push the clutch in then let it out to refire and it will start right back up till I hit the next corner.

pushing in the clutch should have nothing to do with refiring the engine.the engine is still turning at rpm at the end of the straight,plenty enough to fire back up.sounds like you may have an ignition or timing problem.however replace your power valve it may be leeking,and make sure the jets are tight in the metering block.if you set the float level with the engine running where it just will slosh out when you nudge the car then it should be right.sounds like you may not be getting good coil saturation,try replacing the coil.and it may be an oversight but i have done it before,make sure cam is not off a tooth to the advanced side.hope this helps.

The only reason I said I was pushing in the clutch was just because thats how i was starting it instead of stopping and the starting it by the button. The clutch has nothing to do with anything. I have just put a new Blaster 2 Coil on the car this winter. I have always ran the stock one maybe that is my problem I didnt think that would have something to do with it but it might. If you have heard of anyone else having problems with these coils let me know. I am not running the resistor on the coil either.
