Its half the fun! Running around to get shit in order to make the next rounds. Chris and I were both having to make some quick diags and repairs. I honestly didn't think he was going to make the semi finals. But we got it sorted out and got our race and it was a good one

Great , thank's for the pic's, & well done again Mat!!
just looking at your Friends carb, looks like an S&S G? I've seen those ram tubes before, but forgot what they are called? also interesting float bowl he is running!
and can see you took the filter out of your Hammer cleaner, why didn't you just take out side cover off too?
also well done to you both, solving problems as they come up to make each round.

Found the cause of my running issues this weekend. On the way home was telling my buddy David, I bet the emulsion tube or main jet backed off and is sitting in the float bowl cap. Sure enough, pull the cap and out comes the tube and needle jet. Glad it was something very minor but damnit I wish I would of checked it before lining up vs wedman
