try with a 26 roll out, temp after 5 minutes then jump up to a 28 depending on motor temp. if it comes off around 130, you can go higher!

I would have thought 30 myself but I did not run that class. Your car was fast.

You cant go by motor temps on this motor. It is more efficient than the monster or the roar stock. If you have a tight track than 26 still might be too low as that is right or even a little low for a monster. Thanks Galdo. The car was a rocket this weekend. Almost beat Skidmores time he posted last time he came.

Proper way to align hoods is to use brushes that are grounded flat and use it to check if the wear of the comm is in the middle of the brush.

If you are doing asphalt touring with rubber tires dont worry about roll out. Use the FDR and you will be set. We use rollout because it takes into account how large or small our tires are. Rubbers dont change in size drastically. Use the purple springs. Use any current alignment bar available and loosen the hoods. Stick it through both sides and tighten the hoods. Should be good to go.

But it came off the track at about only 130 - 140 degrees. Normally, my monster would be around 155-165.

I really didn't need to... but I decided to go for it.... so I went up TWO MORE teeth... (now I am 4 teeth higher than my monster!)

The Results:

I didn't feel any loss of Punch--> and as a matter of fact--- it felt like it had MORE.... I won the feature, and lapped the entire field + 4 seconds. Temp came off the track at 166-167 degrees.

Now that's Impressive.... but it's gonna suck when everyone else gets one ...

Chris, sticking the alignment tool through both hoods isn't enough to ensure proper alignment. Individual alignment can't be avoided in most cases. The flat-faced brush method is productive.

BTW, we are on the subject of motor hoods, right?

It works for me everytime. And I am not lacking on power at all. I believe roar states the hoods must be perpendicular from each other, meaning they can stick an alignment tool through.

They are and were before the tool even existed and will continue to be. I must not have a recent ROAR book.
