Benton Jackson of MCE Engines dials in initial and total ignition timing, which Marvin wanted precisely at 36 degrees BTDC. Marvin's logic is simple. Conditions are different in a dyno cell compared to a road course. It is one thing to flog an engine hard in a dyno cell under controlled conditions and quite another to push it hard racing. A conservative approach to ignition timing will keep an engine in the race.
