Updates

Wingless Sprint update…. Regarding some basic jetting info to give your GM604 a good baseline to start with, remove the primary jets your Quick Fuel carb came with out of the box, and use those to replace the secondary jets that the carb came with. Then install 122’s or 120’s as the primary jets. In speaking with Quick Fuel (Ryan & Derrick have been our contacts), and Tim over at TA who did the dynoing, they agree that this is a much improved start point compared to the “out of the box” settings. Mufflers…. Schoenfeld makes an adapter that will

3/1/15 TECH UPDATE

STREET STOCKS….. Following consultation with Hoosier Tire, Wilmot Raceway will allow the current Modified IMCA stamped G60 tire as a alternative option to the current Hoosier 500 in the Street Stock class, thus both are the legal tire choices for 2015. Hoosier told us they felt the 500 held a slight competitive advantage over the G60, but from a economic position with the Mods on the same tire it creates a flow of “take offs” from the Mod teams that will help some Street Stock teams financially as “used” tires will be more available, and it gives the Mod teams
