Getting the tuning straightened out. I've added 2 degrees of timing and still no KR. Still need to tweak the air fuel ratio a bit to richen it up. Still a bit lean. Planning to add a bit more timing.

Tires broke loose when I was moving between 40 and 45. I think I need wider tires.

I forgot about doing that. I also didn't remove my tire and other heavy things. I'll have to remember to flip that stupid switch I keep forgetting about.

It'* easy for me with AirBags and they lock in alot tighter than OEM, but man what a difference getting the weight over the front end. Amybe something you should think about. You can easily change out the springs for bags.

Something to think about. When I remember to flip the ELC switch the back end goes up about 2" and I can't even move the rear end. Bit of a rough ride.

I guess, It looks like their planning on building a WalMart Super Center in front of your house. Maybe you should out a sign out front, "Commercial Square Footage For Sale" .
