Author Topic:   running bad at race end??
posted July 17, 2002 09:15 PM
OK, at the end of the race when I go to pull in the pits or get teched my car wants to stall out. It is very hard to restart and unless I am reving high, it wants to quit. It runs beautiful after practice (4 laps) and at the beginning of the race, or under caution, but at the end (15 laps wants to die. What could be causing this?? Thanks

This is very common. I wish I could give you the answer but I never figured it out after 2 years.

Could it be a "Hot Soak"? Maybe you're getting some vapor lock? Got a fuel line too close to a heat source?

My guess would be temp, after hot laps and heats, it starts to do it. But After the feature unless we let it sit and cool for a while in the pits its all we can do to get it refired and on the trailer. After we opened up our front nose peice, the problem seemed to stop. Good Luck
