    DD300 Runing Hot

    I don't know the whole story, but this is from the recent LaManns Classic. I'm sure someone can get the details......

    Good lesson here for anyone running foam filters on Webers.

    Do SUs have the same fuel cloud "standoff" issue Webers do?

    It's okay until it backfires (then you just need to keep it running and floor it to suck in__and out__the flames)!

    I was at John Chatham's yesterday talking to Jack. He said that the fire wasn't serious and they managed to finish the race.

    That's what I love about Healey owners--can you imagine a 'Ferrari Guy' doing that?
