What fuel. I had some bottom end trouble with the Werks fuel. Are you running werks?
My V-Spec was terrible with the werks and I went back to O'Donnel and fixed.

It's the tune of your motor.
The Werks motors need to be tuned blubbery fat on the bottom until it reaches full temp.
When you fire it up and throw it on the track it should take a few laps for it to warm up before the engine starts to feel "crisp".

If it feels and responds good before the motor is to full temp it will bog on the bottom end when it reaches full temp.

The B7pro does not get killer economy but you should be able to go 7-7:30 atleast.

Quick question...if you're sponsored by Werks should you not be seeking advice from them?

You guyz are just plain RUDE!! There nothing wrong asking questions and being a sponsored driver. There are many reasons there are sponsored drivers besides being a world champ. One is being helpful and friendly when people ask questions on the web and at the track. Biggest thing is not being a prick when someone ask for help...

Finally a voice of reason. Not every sponsored drivers is an expert of all things. There are many different level of sponsorships and people should be able to come on here and ask questions without unnecessary remarks.

Dead on the money. I sat out for two years so I figured finding some new factory support would be tough for my come back. Fortunately RB USA hooked me up not for my recent race success but because Jamie knows I'm a helpful guy that loves RB products.
