In any freshly assembled car, it's not a bad idea to run it on the chassis dyno first before hitting the track. This not only allows dialing in the ignition advance and carb jetting, but it's an excellent opportunity to check for leaks, and make sure that the car is running properly. Thanks go out to Phil Clarkson and the crew at Auto Tek in Austin, Texas, for inviting us over to use their Dynojet. Here, Clarkson sets the total timing at 28 degrees.
