Just a quick race report for the Gunnedah weekend 6th/7th March. After the usual 6and1/2 hour trip to Gunnedah on Friday and a broken night's sleep in the trailer (the park is next to a rail line with constant coal and grain train movement) I was ready to rock and roll on Saturday for practice runs. I was ready, couldn't say the same for the HAMBster. First run it ran pretty ragged but I put it down to stale fuel in the bowls. Second run. No better. You know what they say, "Most fuel issues are electrical". Changed plugs. No better. Changed leads. No better. Changed coil. No better. The annoying thing was that with it running shithouse, I still ran consistent 9.6/9.7s in six runs including a run against a Porsche Cayenne (and beat him). After a full day of swearing, cursing and mulling things over I packed up and headed out to the airport parking area to do some contemplating while the Drag club packed up for the day. I cleaned the dashpots on the carbies and reoiled the plungers and then it hit me! What had I done differently since the last time I raced? I'd installed mesh screens between the carbies and the intake trumpets to lessen the chance of a stone getting in like last time. Took the screens out, drilled some big arse holes in them and took it for a test run down the road. Ran good. Next day up early and itching to run. First practice run. Sounding stronger.
