New carbs on Spent most of the day tweeting and adjusting the idle mix and timing to just where I like it. Dug out the colortune and unisyn. Played with the timing light for a while before I threw it back in the toolbox and set my timing the old fashioned way. Wend out on a deserted desert road and advanced
