M42 fuel starvation as motor heats up

Recommended Posts

Duct Tape Motorsports has a 2002 with an M42 at Monticello Lemons Race today. They are experiencing fuel starvation when the motor heats up after half an hour on the track. Any suggestions regarding solution will be appreciated.

Not my team, but very cool 2002 guys.

Can you check your fuel pressure?

Does it happen all the time or when you are on specific turns?

Certain RPM?

Maybe losing spark, not fuel pressure?
