Don't disagree with logging fuel pressure.

Why do so few use a visible (outside the windshield)  fuel pressure gauge with snubber?

 

My opinion:  Because why try to save $100-ish to run a mechanical gauge on the outside versus just running an electronic gauge with 2-3-ish fewer high-pressure joints to worry about atomizing fuel all over the engine bay or windshield?   (I don't love the SCCA fuel port for similar reasons, and I get nervous when people don't run the cap on the port itself!)

Different Strokes For Different folks. Frugal me will trust a mechanical system with joints long over an electrical system. My fuel port and any car I work on has the cap. Cleaning the engine bay now and then is goooood. :bigsquaregrin:

Check your battery tie-down too.

 

I only had cut-out issues in turns at WGI when going over the curbs. The damn battery was vibrated to the right (on left-hand turns) and would short out the positive post on the tie-down bracket.

Taped it up, put a block of wood on the right side, even double-stick tape on the bottom has finally cured it from moving under the bracket.

 

Might be time to get a new bracket I think...

My last build(PTC car)had all quality electric stepper gauges...so simple/clean/ACCURATE! Will never bother with mechanical gauges again!

 

Your absolutely correct Saul...did not have a cap on the schrader valve test port at the FPR and when it started leaking very slowly it took awhile to figure out why i kept smelling fuel!
