i would go with a carb restrictor because it is cheaper...

Also, you might want to sort out the tune of your engine, 170 isn't a temp range that your engine like to stay in... its not healthy.

You could also restrict the servo throw so that your engine doesn't fully open, and use a slower servo and maybe switch to a rotary carb to soften the acceleration.

If other people can get away with a similar setup to yours, I suggest you make your car slow so you can work on your driving then slowly make your car faster again.

The restrictors work great in off-road to smooth out the low end and not take away too much from the top end. Another advantage is that my fuel consumption went from eight minutes to thirteen.

Problem is getting one to fit a slide carb properly. They work best in OS type rotary carbs.

Both AE and Trinity sell three sizes of restrictors.

The reason the temp is 170 is trying to slow it down a little.I guess its better 170 than 270.Sound like the restrctor does the oppisite of what I thought.I figured it would affect the top end not the bottom end.i,ve allready tried setting the throttle epa down but that also takes away punch out of corner to much to get effect at top end.I,ve got restrictors on order so we,ll see.Thanks
