I would try to help, but personally, I have not worked on a swing arm car. There is someone out here that can help, come on guys!

If you really want help, and your not afraid to use the land line, call Dirt Works and ask if they will have Scott Drake contact you, I have seen him do things with swing arm cars that leave me speechless. If he calls you, your racing will never be the same. It will help if you run a Dirt Works but he is good with them all.

thanks rooster for the tip.i called dirt works and they gace mne a number that i might be able to reach him at. i have found some good info out there and some shall we say 'snake oil' info. most people are tight lippled about what makes them go fast, and so they should be. all i want is a general direction to go in.

Hey Rocco, glad I could help, you can't go wrong with Scott! that boy can drive the wheels off of anything. His knowlede of a car and how it works just blows me away. I feel like I'm pretty sharp,(most of the time) but Scott is amazing as you should soon find out. Good luck hope he gets you where you need to be.....

After spending lots of time and money trying to get more forward bite, our problem was solved by staggering the butterflies on the carb. It made more of a change than anything. Now the rears dont open untill the fronts are about 80% open. This on your typical 750 alky Holley.
