Well 16 Mini Stocks this weekend and our underdog dodge can nolonger be called an underdog. We finished 5th, 3rd and last (under protest)after being t-boned along the front straight. The protest is for what happend after in the pits. Driver came in as engine was missing (impact had loosened a plug lead) which was an easy fix. Getting out was harder - both tow trucks blocking the exit lane and no drivers in sight. Cost us a couple of laps - one of which he pulled back. Yes he was quicker than the actual race winner.

Our big problem now is getting it off the line at the start. It just doesnt seem to have low end grunt. Once wound up she is ****ed quick now. Any suggestions for better low end with out losing much up top??

Bobby,
We have about 20 degrees at the moment but mainly because (and no one told me until last night) the vacuum advance isnt working. Now fixing that might help our starts a little.
