    If it is killing the engine when you brake, then you need to turn in your idle adjustment screw and open up your carb gap slightly more.

    It bogs down when you accelerate to Full Throttle and approaching Full Throttle it is stalling out and and it never issue is when you give it throttle and back off the throttle it's still going

    Sounds like it is either too rich or too lean. What is the head temp after running it?

    Watch the video below and screw in the pivot balls on the outside of the arms. Doing that will add some toe-in to the rear. These balls should always be screwed all the way in and never adjusted out.
