Default Re: Overflow re-use?

I caped my overflow off. Connecting it to the intake port will only result in your motor gulping down large quanitys of fuel at high speed/vibration.

I think its for races where you want your carb fuel level EXACT no matter what the cost and flooding would be a disaster, and a little spillage is AOK.

If you cap it, the carb could flood, especialy on long, steel hills, but its unlikey you would make it up such a steep hill, or wanna go down one (or need the motor to go down!), And iv had no problems with the steep ass hills around my place.
