yes they gauge check the 4412's 3.50 gear powerglide in low (6.16 final glide is a 1.76) stock shocks racing springs car weighs 3250 with driver1997bird wrote:When you say dry slick track it just makes me ask how dry? Locally that is all that are here are dry slick tracks, so dry slick to us here is about the same as racing on glass with baby powder spread accross the track. We have raced in other states where they are supposed to be dry slick conditions only to find out that the track has alot of bite in it for us. Could you tell us what track you are racing at so that I can look it up and see what the track looks like maybe on someone's youtube video. For versitility I like to use a 3.5" stroke crank in a 400 block and tailor the cam profile so that it has a smooth throttle transition that can be used for both dry slick and on a tacky track. What gear ratio are you useing? Are you limited by a "stock" valve spring diameter of 1.25"/1.26"? What kind of suspension are you useing on your car? What kind of tires do they require you to use? Do you have to use a factory type shock on this car? What is the race weight with driver for your car? Now then as long as it has a 0-4412 Holley list number stamped in the main body of the choke horn do they still gauge the venturi sizes?
