74 260z round top SU's
The car will drive normal for the first 3 min, then...
I was starting from a stop and the car stalls (not me)
So i start the car and floor it this time as the engine sputters me into second.
Then as im switching gears the engine takes off and redlines (not on the gas anymore and clutch in) and continues to redline for 5 seconds until shutting off the engine. i pulled over checked my linkage and did a cursory look at the vacuum lines: everything checked out fine so i started it and drove home without anymore problems. this same thing has happened 2 days in a row in the same intersection driving home from work. Any ideas?

Have you checked the carb oil? How about the return springs on the linkage?

Slamming a car to the ground and putting stupid wheels on it is like spandex on Rosie O'Donnell. You go ahead and get all excited about that spandex if that floats your boat. All I see are cankles.

As I said in another forum, sounds like the pedal is getting caught on your carpet.

Time for a break down or rebuild. Or a swap like we talked about in the chat section. Either way keep us posted of what happened.
