Im gonna race with my Hss1332

Hey guys, there is a snowblower race in a winter carnival close to here.

I have a 5 hours total time driving a snowblower.

Do you have any suggestion/tips to help me win?

Already have jet #110 and plan to put my rpm to 3800.

Ill put a lot of fluid into it but what guys do you recommend? Full speed ? 50% speed?

Thx for the input.

impeller kit if they allow that mod

also a tach so you can go as fast as the rpms stay up in fast throttle spec.

Good luck. It looks like fun! Hopefully, the snow won't have much moisture in it. Post some pics when all is said and done.

That must be a lot of fun! Even just to watch.

Run your RPM as high as possible/allowed. I don't know anything about your specific machine and its carb, but I guess make sure that 110 gives you the best RPM for your conditions (including altitude). Too-rich, or too-lean, and you'll lose power. If too-rich, you're stuck. If a touch too-lean, adding a bit of choke might help you tweak the mixture richer.

What speed do you mean, engine speed, or ground speed? Engine speed at 100%, for sure. Ground speed, as fast as the engine, and traction, will manage.

Full fluids is probably good, the extra weight should add a bit of traction. If you're allowed to add additional weight over the wheels/tracks, that could help with traction as well.

Spraying the augers, impeller, and chute with your choice of lubricant (silicone, cooking spray, Fluid Film, etc) may help the snow glide through a bit more easily.
