    A couple of MR's on this list. Grant was flying, dicing it up with Greg K and that girl in the pink Mini. Boy, could she drive the wheels off that thing. That was a lot of fun to watch!!!!

    My brother is giving GT Challenge a try tomorrow. Should be fun.

    But there's a bigger point here. The 1-series is the last car that BMW engineered before the Germans, as a car-making culture, fell out of love with driving.

    Fun times. We had a nice group of cars all running similar lap times. Had this Nastruck thing in my rear view mirror the whole race. Never got close enough to try anything, but he was hanging in there.

    All the carb work didn't help at all, in fact the thing was working worse than ever in the qualifications. It would sputter and spit coming out of 14 and 20. I'd be half-way up the hill at Ridge before the stupid thing would kick in. Jay readjusted the carb, and then for the race it was back to being merely shitty instead of horrible. Which means it would only sputter 1/4 of the way up the Ridge. WTF is with this thing? Has huge power but fucks up the corner exit on me.

    Ended up 3rd in PT-1 and 4th overall.

    Huh that sucks. Is it more power than last year?

    Fuel starvation on exit?

    Truckloads more power. Nastrucks pulled away from me on the straights last year... now I pull away from them. Ken was saying I've go 10 mph on him at the end of the straights.

    Some kind of fuel starvation... what isn't clear is why. It's a huge problem at 14, and somewhat of an issue at 20.

    You were also spilling fuel I think out of right handers out the left side.

    So really bad on lefts, so is the fuel pickup on the left side?

    No accumulator or baffle or something?

    Hmm. Bad on lefts. Perhaps fuel cell is set up for right hand stuff only? It's probably the only thing left not touched from roundy round days.

    I have another carb that you could try if you'd like. It's been tuned on the dyno on a motor very similar to yours.

    Yeah the vent was spilling. They overfilled it I think.

    Really don't think it's a roundy-round issue. Never had this problem with the original engine, and left should be fine.

    Maybe try Jeff's carb. Right now we're a little stumped.

    Sounds like a carb issue for sure. I'll be there first thing in the morning with it.

    It's a MRacle! Jeff dropped off the carb this morning, and I just tested it. Works great!

    Next step is to ream out the engine shop... just paid them more money to fix the damned thing and it's still shit.
