Default Special manifold for engines

Hello,

Anyone remember who sold a special manifold that took air form the flywheel and
pushed it to the carburetor ?

I think hobbythek had, I don't see it in there web site now.

Any info would be appreciate.

Thanks.

Why would anyone want to push HOT air into the carb?

Ohhhh I see. That would be to help prevent vapor lock I guess. It just directs air onto the carb to disipate the heat. Running super unleaded or race gas would probably work better then that.
