Any ideas guys?

I had to re-tune 100 percent...

When making the switch. You will have to re tune your engine.

sounds like your idle is too low or your linkage is not right. When brake is applied slide closes completely. Does this only happen when you pit?

assuming the only thing you changed was the fuel, sounds like ya may need to retune, as stated above.

I had to lean mine out a bit when I switched over.
