NEED help ....

This weekend at the Texas Biggie I had a Max SL3 implode, so I put in my back up which is a Novarossi NSR3 Race ... I got it new a couple years ago but it has only had MAYBE a half gallon thru it ... After putting it in the car and tuning a little (hadn't been started or ran in about a year) it ran surprisingly well. I continued tuning it, getting the gearing, and clutch / two-speed adjusted. It was running better than it did when I replaced it with the Max.

In the main here's were the problem was, which was why I replaced it to begin with. It runs great, never gets about 270ish. However when I come in to pit an refuel it will flamout ... not everytime and not as soon as the idle slows. It happened twice in the 30 min main, first time (about the 10 min. mark) my pit man refueled me and I left pit lane and on the second turn it just flamed out. It fired right back up with no problem. The second time (about the 25 min mark) after getting refueled I was at the end of pit lane when it flamed out. Once again it started without any problem.

..... Can someone tell me what causes this .....

i just got my First Nova at the start of this year, i went on what the rep said on how to break the engine in. i did like 8 tanks on idle temp around 70 degC then i did another 8 tanks slowly leaning it out. probabley a bit excesive but i used the rod for like 3 race meets after and the Rod still hadn't streached. But mine was the 2008 3SCT - Tuned
