    Ok so I was browsing another site and someone suggested running a qjet backwards so the primaries are to the back of the motor. They called it redneck fuel injection. It's suposed to keep the carb from flooding out on inclines and stuff. I thought this was kinda wierd so I wanted to ask the experts. Yall ever heard of this?

    Mine will run sideways , downhill , and uphill as it is . No need for that .

    The only time it stalled on me was twice in Moab . But to be fair , I never really bothered to adjust it for an altitude waaaaaaaaay over my home city . I am under 2000 feet at home . So its no wonder I had a couple stalls in Moab :thumb:
