Yesterday I went out to the track to try to recreate my flame issues with the fuel gun.
Conditions were similar, but not exact. Air temp Sunday at Nationals was around 90, with a little humidity. Air temp yesterday was around 85, but not quite as humid.
The test was an hour run with stops every 8:30 with the same fuel gun as the nationals. My car was straight off the track, same everything. Engine temp at nationals was 230, and for the test it was 235.
Like I was unfortunately expecting, the engine didn’t even try to flame out one time. It didn’t even make any sound at all like it did during the Nats semi and final. It took the gun with no issues for the entire test. My home track is quite a bit smaller than the Nats track, so I’m not sure if that has anything to do with it.
My head is up a little higher now after the race. I did all I could do, I left nothing back and that’s all I can do. Now I’m just gonna try to club race more and do fuel gun stops more often when I’m at the track. Back to work and come back smarter and stronger at the next race. Sorry I wasn’t able to find the magic answer for all you guys having similar issues. Thanks for checking in and God Bless.
