The “Perfect Storm” Hits Super/Gas

BOWLING GREEN, KY – All eyes are turned to Super/Gas with the introduction of the Quick Fuel Technology®  – sponsored C7 Corvette roadster. New racecars are debuted every day so what’s so special here? To begin with it’s the first 2017 C7 roadster to be sculpted into a drag car, and what sculpture it is – this Greg Russell Design has Best Appearing Honors written all over it. And while race fans and competitors alike will find it hard to look away, veteran driver Michelle Furr will be “crushing it” winning rounds, races and championships.

The “perfect storm” is really the coming together of Richard Earl’s Suncoast Race Cars that fabricated the car using the best components possible such as a Moser rear end and axles and an Abuzzi trans and converter; Stan Ray of Ohio Crankshaft built the horsepower using a Bill Mitchell Products a 632cid aluminum block topped with Trick Flow heads and a huge QFX 1250-TS carb with Hooker Black Heart Headers, MSD ignition components and Earl’s Plumbing; and the incredible C7 Corvette wedge body design that combines low aero drag with high-speed stability and excellent downforce. The “Force Multiplier” in all this is Furr Racing – driver Michelle, her crew chief husband Rick, and their junior racers Madilyn and Adiayn. Over the past 10 years they have been a dominant force in Super/Comp, Top/Dragster, Super Street and ET Brackets and Jr. Dragsters. Michelle has been one of the very few racers that has successfully transitioned from dragster to door slammer on a weekly basis.

How deadly is this concentration of talent? The second full pass on the Quick Fuel Corvette was a 9.96 on a 9.90 Super/Gas Index, and the car made it to the third round of competition on its first outing. When Michelle acclimates herself to her new ride with the help of her Racepak data acquisition, she will be tough to beat!

QFT Founder Marvin Benoit Retires After 19 Great Years

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Ask any racer or performance enthusiast about the defining attributes of Quick Fuel Technology and they are likely to sum it up in one word – “innovation”. Marvin Benoit is all about creating fuel system products that are easier to use, faster on the track and more affordable for the racer, because, after all Marvin is a racer at heart, and he is building products he would want to use on his own racecars.

A few examples of his innovative genius would include QFT’s QuickSet™ vacuum secondary adjustment that eliminates the hassle of changing vacuum pod springs, high-flow 4-Door™ power valves that react faster and flow more fuel, die-cast and billet aluminum components for lighter weight and adding tuning features found in high-end carbs, like changeable idle and air bleeds to most QFT carbs regardless of price. Realizing that carburetors still offer some advantages over EFI, Marvin incorporated the best annular booster carb technology into Quick Fuel’s QFi to create a superior EFI throttle body.

When Marvin left Holley in ’97 to start up Quick Fuel Technology his goal was simply to sell small carburetor components to racers. It wasn’t long before QFT was building its own line of carburetors and equipping them so that they were ready-to-race out of the box. Many a carb shootout against custom builders has been won by box-stock QFT carbs. QFT’s product line evolved with fuel pumps, pressure regulators and most recently, EFI. Marvin was awarded 9 patents for fuel system innovations over those 19 years. As a result, Quick Fuel now sells in excess of 50,000 carburetors a year. Marvin sold QFT to High Performance Industries in 2012.

Now Marvin is planning on spending time with his family, traveling and of course racing his eclectic collection of racecars. He wants to thank his many employees and customers over the years for their loyalty and support.  He looks forward to seeing them at the racetrack and shows in the future.

Quick Fuel Technology® Introduces Three New 450cfm 4V Carburetors

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Throttle response can be more important than peak horsepower, especially for most street vehicles, and nothing affects throttle response more than carburetor size. Prior to Quick Fuel Technology’s® (QFT’s) new 450cfm four-barrel carbs, folks with small V8s and 4- and 6-cylinder engines had to work with 600cfm or 650cfm carbs. Regardless of calibration, airflow and fuel curves were rarely optimal.

QFT has solved this dilemma with three new 450cfm models centered around a single die-cast aluminum main body with 1.090” venturis and 1-9/16” throttle plates. There is a mechanical secondary HR-Series, a polished vacuum secondary Slayer model and a Black Diamond® version of the Slayer. These carbs feature normal 4150 modular carb dimensions such as air-horn diameter and baseplate bolt pattern – so they bolt to 4150-flanged intake manifolds and accept traditional four-barrel air cleaners.

QFT’s HR-450 model shows its true performance heritage with mechanical secondaries, dual metering blocks and dual-inlet fuel bowls. The only visible concession to daily street driving is the electric choke. Enthusiasts are already sizing up these carbs as ideal for small-block street tunnel rams. Install the 1:1 Quick-Link™ secondary link for cruise night antics, then swap back to the 40% link for more economical daily driving.

The Slayer SL-450-VS and BD-450-VS offer all of the adjustability of the original Slayer carb and feature the single-inlet, side-hung fuel bowls that make them so adaptable to early muscle cars and O.E. replacements. They both have vacuum secondaries with QFT’s Quick-Set™ single screw adjustment and electric chokes. They are completely adjustable with changeable air bleeds and primary and secondary main jets. The Black Diamond® version lowers fuel temperatures by up to 6% and is scratch and corrosion resistant.

Quick Fuel Technology® Introduces New 2-BBL Circle Track Carburetors

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Quick Fuel Technology® (QFT™) has introduced a new series of circle track racing 2-BBL carburetors (Part # XP-4412) that are packed with features designed to make them competitive with the one-off custom-built carbs that cost hundreds of dollars more. Precise, black anodized billet metering blocks and throttle bodies are devoid of casting flaws and irregularities. A die-cast, lightweight aluminum main body has centered venturis for improved performance and better distribution. The choke tower has been eliminated and the inlet specially contoured for increased airflow as well. An anti-siphon check valve is installed in the main body to reduce pump pullover. The throttle body incorporates roller bearing seals that provide for smoother operation and less wear on the shaft. Specially designed straight leg boosters provide higher airflow (XP-4412-S only).

Like all QFT carbs, these new 2-BBL Circle Track Carburetors are infinitely tuneable with changeable air bleeds, emulsion bleeds and power valve channel restrictions. They are augmented with adjustable idle mixture screws. For those exacting and difficult race applications optional 3-circuit metering is also available. Rounding out the fuel handling duties is a dual inlet fuel bowl with -8 AN fittings. It is equipped with dual sight glass windows for easy float adjustment and a single wedge style circle track float.

QFT finished off these carbs with its proprietary Black Diamond® coating that provides enhanced corrosion protection and a 6% reduction in fuel temperature. Quick Fuel’s 2-BBL Circle Track Carbs are available for use with gas, methanol and E85 fuels. There are currently four carbs available – three 500cfm models with 1.375” venturis that are intended for classes with a “gage rule”. Part # XP-4412 is for gas, part # XP-4412-A is for methanol and part # XP-4412-E85 is for ethanol and E85 fuels. Part # XP-4412-S is a Sportsman version that flows more than 600cfm with a 1.450” venturi and is calibrated for gas.

Quick Fuel Technology® Introduces New Quick Cool Carburetor Insulator Kits

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Many carburetor problems can be traced to elevated fuel temperatures in the carburetor. Vapor lock, erratic idle and unresponsiveness to adjustments are just a few of the typical issues. That’s why Quick Fuel Technology® (QFT) developed its Black Diamond™ heat resistant coatings for its carburetors and manifolds. For those without coatings, QFT’s new Quick Cool carb insulator kits (Part # 300-4013) reduce heat transfer to the carburetor by both deflecting heat away from the carb main body and fuel bowl area plus reducing heat transfer from the manifold flange to the carb base.

QFT’s Quick Cool Insulator Kits are a thin aluminum and poly-core sandwich that fits between the carburetor and manifold. It is designed for 4150-style carb flanges and fits Holley®, QFT™ and Street Demon carbs. The bottom layer of aluminum deflects some of the heat around the insulator. The poly-core reduces the heat transfer and the top layer is designed to dissipate any heat that might get through.

The kit comes complete with the poly-core sandwich insulator, non-stick open flange gaskets, carb studs and hardware.

Quick Fuel Technology® Introduces Revolutionary Electronic Fuel Injection System

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Quick Fuel Technology®, known for its innovative carburetors and fuel systems, is introducing QFI – a bolt-on throttle body electronic fuel injection system capable of supporting 500 horsepower. While the market is awash with bolt-on EFI systems, QFI is different: It combines the superior fuel atomization aspects of a carburetor with the precise fuel control of EFI. The patent pending 8-hole annular discharge sleeves inject fuel into a venturi where air speed is at its peak, and pressure is at its lowest, atomizing the fuel far better than any traditional injector nozzle can do. This results in a much more homogeneous fuel/air mixture that burns faster and more complete, producing more power and better response.

QFI not only has superior fuel delivery, it is packed with features like an on-board ignition driver (no spark box necessary), and full timing control with an integral two-step rev control. The QFI fuel injection system has versatile programming solutions including self-learning capability, hand-held controller or laptop tuning if desired.

Quick Fuel’s QFI is designed for 4150 and 4500 style flange intake manifolds, and fuel delivery is provided by 62 lb./hr. injectors. It is compatible with power adders such as nitrous oxide, superchargers and turbochargers, and with minor modifications, can be used with E85 fuel.

OEM sensors are used for easy replacement if necessary. QFI is available in two finishes – QFT’s exclusive Black Diamond™ black satin finish, or polished aluminum. The QFI system is available as a Base Kit or Master Kit that includes an in-line fuel pump and fittings.

Quick Fuel Technology’s® Quick Kits Restore New Carburetor Performance

BOWLING GREEN, KY -- After a hard season of racing, your Quick Fuel Technology® (QFT) performance carburetor may need a little TLC. QFT’s Quick Kits are all you need for a quick rebuild to restore your carburetor to like-new performance. Race fuel additives can deteriorate many “soft” carburetor parts like needle and seat assemblies, power valves, pump diaphragms and gaskets. Performance may slowly fall off, and it is hard to pinpoint why.

Rather than deal with these sometimes perplexing problems at the track, installing a QFT Quick Kit will ensure consistent and repeatable performance. Plus, these new kits will actually upgrade your QFT carb with redesigned fuel bowl and metering block gaskets with larger diameter holes including booster through-holes and main jet feed passages. No longer is there a chance of the gasket becoming the restriction or metering device. All gaskets are made out of MP-15 non-stick gasket material that provides excellent sealing ability and retains fastener torque.

A simple lean or nitrous backfire in the intake system can rupture or compromise the performance of a power valve. QFT’s Quick Kits also include its exclusive FOUR DOOR® power valves that provide greater flow capacity and react more quickly to rapid throttle opening. Another component included in the kit are GFLT accelerator pump diaphragms that will provide reliable performance for all alcohol-based fuels, ensure crisp throttle response and a full pump shot when you need it.

QFT Quick Kits are available for six applications: 2300 style flange, 350-500cfm 2bbl circle track applications, gas only; 4150 mechanical secondary, gas only; 4150 vacuum secondary, gas only; 4150 E85 and alcohol applications; 4500 2- and 3-circuit, gas only, and 4500 2- and 3-circuit for E85 and alcohol only.

Quick Fuel’s SSR-585-VS (585cfm, vacuum secondaries) replaces the side hung float modular 585 class of carburetors that have 1.250-inch diameter primary and 1.312-inch diameter secondary venturis. The SSR-585-VS features a lightweight aluminum main body with a choke tower, choke plate and changeable air bleeds. It has square aluminum fuel bowls with a single sight glass window to adjust float height. A cast aluminum primary block features three changeable emulsions, changeable idle feed restrictions and changeable power valve channel restriction for the racers who prefer running a power valve. The screw-in air bleeds and changeable emulsion restrictions allow racers to easily fine-tune their engine's fuel curve with greater precision than ever before providing the engine a more consistent air/fuel mixture throughout the entire RPM range. The SSR-585-VS also features a secondary jet plate with replaceable jets.

QFT’s SSR-585-VS now joins its sibling SSR-780-VS (780cfm) and SSR-850 (850cfm) in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock competition. The SSRs reflect the latest in carburetor technology making traditional modular O.E. carbs obsolete. They are lightweight, cost effective, and easy to tune – adding adjustments not easily made to O.E. carbs. Every SSR carb is hand-built and engine tested in-house before it is shipped.

Quick Fuel Technology™ Introduces BLACK DIAMOND™ Series Carburetors

Bowling Green, KY – Engine compartments are hostile environments for carburetors. Carburetors can reach a peak under-hood temperature of between 180° to 200° F., and the chemical residues in the fuel, oil and coolant can literally bake onto your carburetor and become corrosive over a period of time. While an unsightly looking carb won’t usually affect performance, under-hood heat will. For years racers and tuners have increased performance by lowering fuel temperature. Quick Fuel Technology™ (QFT) has introduced a highly durable Teflon® coating that lowers fuel temperatures by 6% to ensure maximum power and response. It is impact and scratch resistant and also resists corrosion from under-hood chemicals and harsh environments found in marine applications or coastal regions.

The high performance Teflon® coating is designed specifically for the unique requirements of carburetors and is available in a satin black finish. NitroPlate®, an industry leader in all types of high temperature coatings, designed and applies this coating on select SS-Series, Q-Series, and QFX-Series carburetors for QFT.

With the Black Diamond™ Series your carburetor will shed dirt and resist corrosion, offering a showroom fresh appearance and unique performance advantage for years.

Quick Fuel Technology Releases New Single Inlet, Dual Needle & Seat Billet Fuel Bowl

BOWLING GREEN, KY – While today’s race engines have increased horsepower more than threefold, carburetor fuel handling has remained unchanged for nearly 30 years. Tuners are trying to meet these increased fuel demands with a single inlet needle & seat assembly and the same fuel bowl capacity. This problem has been “Band Aided®” with oversized fuel pumps, high-flow regulators and fuel lines, but the fuel bowl has remained the basic “bottleneck” in the fuel delivery system especially for alcohol, E85 and high horsepower applications.

Quick Fuel Technology (QFT) has solved the problem with its all-new billet aluminum fuel bowl that features single inlet, dual needle and seat assemblies that flow twice as much fuel as traditional fuel bowls, and increased bowl capacity especially needed in high horsepower alcohol, E85 and blow-through supercharger applications. The new QFT Billet Fuel Bowl (P/N 34-114) fits all 2300, 4150 and 4500-style Modular Carbs.

CNC-machined from T6061 billet aluminum, these fuel bowls are precise, strong and have zero porosity. They are hard anodized for corrosion protection and are fully compatible with alcohol or E85 fuels. A center baffle reduces side-to-side fuel slosh and the bowls also feature dual sight glasses for easy float adjustment. They also attach with standard factory length fuel bowl screws, and accept both 30cc or 50cc accelerator pump assemblies.

Priced at $249.99 Racer Net P/N 34-114 includes one single Inlet, dual needle and seat billet aluminum fuel bowl, notched floats, non-stick bowl gasket, check valve and #8 AN inlet fitting.
