My problem is while rolling out of burnout the car shuts off as if its running out of fuel. Had same problem before sending carb to IRD to have it rebuilt. Ps Jon Bitler at IRD is amazing! Help!

Does it re-start and make the pass? I would think not. Fuel jug test. Sounds like a supply problem. How big is the line from the tank to the pump? How long as well?

Shuts off under load, huh.

Basic question ...... is the pump running?
Do you have a fuel pressure gauge mounted where you can see it? Like on the cowl?
Where is the pump mounted in relation to the fuel cell?

Just had the same thing with my car doing that. I dropped the float level a touch and it stopped, but going to add a rubber tube vent to vent and cut a slot at the top. Should solve the problem completely.
