Removing the AFC arm is not tuning

A properly tuned/modified AFC will turn consistant times EVERYTIME. Getting the same consistancy out of your foot is just not going to happen, sorry. It takes a little patience and experimenting, but once you get it it will perform better than you can. Using an AFC lets you concentrate on other things instead of trying to focus on what your foot is doing the whole time.

Build enough boost before you launch so the tires almost spin and cut a good light

so what do u suggest? should I cut some of the afc arm off? if so how much? and what should I do with the smoke screw? I do prefer smoke if that is all its for but if I will get more power from the less smoke I prefer power over smoke.

I would switch the washers, grind a little off both ends of the arm and adjust the starwheel and pre-boost screw to get the best results. Its up to you though, if you've got the cordination to get the most out of your setup and you want to go ahead be lazy and gut it....

What do you mean by both ends of the arm? I have removed the tapered part of the foot, but not understanding what to remove on the other side? Can full rack travel be had by just taking the right amount of material off the foot or would one have to also do what you mentined on the other side and the washers flip thing? I will find it fun and interesting tuning the afc for best times this sat. night but want to go with the right mods already made so that the best tuning can be had. If i decide to remove the foot for a run of 2 just for the sake of learning and being curious i wouldnt consider it lazy, just wanting to learn what works and what dont, and i can def. imagine that will totally dep. on all the other tune up perameters in the engine. I thinking most all of the afc tuning will be seen easily in the 60'. I'm hoping that with right at 33" of tire on the ground that traction wont be my killer so i can leave with a little more boost and help with the onsight of two much fuel if i try a pass with no arm in the housing? Well see and i'll let you Sun. Thanks Ryan
