Race Results I-35 Speedway – Sat Aug 17, 2013

After several hours or trial and error we finally got the HIGH fuel pressure mystery solved. I had to re-route the return line from the injectors to the tank. I blocked off the return that is in the motorcycle injection fuel rail. I teed off into the line from the pump to the injectors back thru the fuel regulator. That solved the problem. Obviously alcohol had finally corroded the preset regulator in the fuel rail and it was not working. The fuel pressure gauge should be buy Bactrim antibiotic online of fuel pressure. When I started working on it on Monday it read 100 lbs and it was increasing every time I ran the engine. Now we are back to 53 lbs. This fuel problem has been going on for a while. Now with the new engine in the car, I need to take it back down and have it dynoed to get the max hp/torque from adjusting the fuel curve and fuel pressure.

Mike Trent was the driver for the evening. As far as the chassis last nite, Mike said it was handling really well and with a lot of moisture in the track traction wasn’t a problem. Some areas on the track were wet slick and others tacky. We were as fast as the 1st and 2nd place cars, but just wasn’t able to make the pass. The top 5 or 6 cars are really evenly matched so a lot of times where you start is where you finish. Mike says it would be nice to start from the front row. He doesn’t think they could have passed him if he had gotten by them or started on the front row.
