Scott,
Really enjoyed your race report I understand the big learning curve going though the same thing with my GT. Really exciting though isn't it!

Now your hesitation problem, I don't like the idea of getting used to a problem we might be able to think of something to help between us. So your running HS6s right? Do you thing it's fuel bowl surge causing the problem? I presume your tank is baffled or similar so we can rule that out. So if its fuel bowl surge on the SUs a mod more common minis is to fit a spacer under the lid of the fuel bowls about 1cm or so of machined alluminum. This increases the vol of the fuel bowls this can help with surge issues. Or do you think it's another problem?

Hi Tom,
Thank you! We believe a simple needle change will fix it... fuel pressure i correct, floats in the correct position. Will let you know what we find out.

Best - Scott

Tested this past Monday. Between rear bar adjustment, tire pressures and some carb work, we picked up 3 seconds a lap. Now I just need seat time.

That was mighty kind of them. Have fun out there with big money, no driving talent crowd cool smiley I still have the metal image of the vintage Testarossa skipping across the kitty litter at the corkscrew like a stone skipping across a lake. LOL Google spell check didn't like the word testarossa, it suggested prostate instead, yep kinda the same thing I guess grinning smiley

Like any vintage weekend, there are all levels of driving abilities and yes, there is big $ at the Monterey weekend. David Love, the driver of the TR250 you mentioned raced that car for nearly 50 years and his incident at the top of the corkscrew was due to a catastrophic brake failure. We was really a very nice man and if fact he raced with Fast Eddies Father back in the day. thumbs up
