    I finally rebuilt a q-jet and had it come out better than when I started! Wooohooo!! They usually end up worse than when I started, so I get pissed off and just go buy a new one. But this time I actually had positive results...Unfortuneatley, it didn't fix the problem I was hoping it would. My new 'burbs motor is soooo tired that it'll hardly get out of it's own way. 3rd gear is useless pretty much. I was hoping that rebuilding the carb and tuning it up would wake it up...Looks like the truggy motor is gonna have to go in the 'burb. Wasn't realyl lookin forward to that...Anyone wanna come and gimme a hand with some motor swappin next weekend? :D :D
