First run of "baby" 1/4 drum uds
So I cranked up my baby uds to play a bit for the first time. Made the basket let it come up to bout 237 then settled at 230. Ran surprisingly well in the wind so far . Anyway i was wondering if there is a rule of thumb on intake to vent ratio. I feel the factory dome lid vent might not be enough Any thoughts ? Im runnig 3 3/4 intakes half open. The dome has three 1/2 in vents that i have all the way open.

On first glance, I think they are enough, depending on how high you want your baby to go.

I think you should have no problem hitting 300, but you should see by opening everything up on a test burn.

Oh yeah, and include pics

Well first run did ok. Ran stable in mid 230s but started to climb a bit the last hour. Kinda ran out of time to play. Didn't try to do much with it just wanted to test.
