You guys were spot on.... took her out last night with 0.5mm on the low end and 2 turns on the high end and it was spot on. Well she ran at least which was a major improvement over the past couple of months.

One thing that I did notice while drag racing against my mates car is that his car accelerates from the line a lot quicker than mine. It seems to take a while for mine to get going but then the top speed is reasonably similar to his. Both our cars are stock so I wouldn't expect there to be any difference appart from the tuning

...... which brings me to another question..... are there any mods that you would recommend we go for first given that we're just car park racers at this stage.

Cheers for the input, it's great to get such friendly, useful advice

Thats what we like to hear!

You might wish to lean out the bottom end slightly but only make adjustments 1/8 of a turn at a time. this should improve your acceleration, Its pretty cold over there whereas here on Oz its bloody hot. Try that and let us all know how you get on.
Worry about the hop-ups later.

If its the shaft that sits onto the flywheel, hold the flywheel firm with vice-grips or multigrips and back off the pilot shaft with a spanner. You can buy a proper flywheel wrench if you really want.

i think that the v1s is slightly over geared which is why it doesnt have as much low end speed as high end.

The V-One S, not quick off the mark?
What a load of bullshit, they are geared beautifully while stock for drag racing, but on stock engine tuning, the engine doesnt like hauling the car down a straight away, even when tuned if u have a higher OIL content, it seems to bog easily this engine, basically u stop, wait 1 or 2 secs and then hammer it once low-end is tuned a bit ad it shall fly.

But these things keep up with the Holden VT Gen3tec guys, thats a fair bit of V8 its chasing.

ok i just ran the car
the manifold is working ok but now there is castor oil everyone on the car like its leaking

the car is bogging down heaps!

when i put it to my old settings that worked good, it just boggs down even more

the only way i can get it so it to stop bogging down is if i run it really rich, then it doesnt even get hot and is really slow

can someone help me?
