since i see that your online, maybe i can ask another question of you. I was running my car today with the body on it and i ran into my dads truck tire (not hard, i was actually hitting the brakes, but i dont think i have them tight enough). no damage to the car or anything, but i could swear that it was running faster. is that possible?

Sorry for not replying, I didn't see your reply until I got home a few minutes ago.

I don't think you would actually be traveling faster due to hitting the brakes. I looked at my NTC3 and when I put on the brakes, they engage and thats it. The carb doesn't open up any more than what it would if I were idling it so your not feeding it any fuel to accelerate it. It is possible that you may have had an air bubble travel through the line causing a temporary surge in the motor but what I think may have happened is that when you engaged the brakes they probably locked up and put your car into a slide. Whereas friction, and with the aid of your dad's truck eventually stopped you.

I would believe that possibly it appeared to be moving faster because you may have gotten caught up in trying to stop it before it hit the tire? Other than that I can't think of anything other than a air bubble that would actually make you go faster. Even an air bubble may not have done much to accelerate you since you were on the brakes and both forces would probably have canceled each other out.

It started to go faster after i hit the tire, oddly enough. I was going to try and run it again after that, but my ignitor died on me (next project, get another ignitor for a backup..hehehe). when i get home tonight i will try it out and see how it goes. thanx again for the help
