Default Need throttle curve help on gasser

I have DLE 55, my first gasser. Noted the throttle (butterfly) is much different responce to glow (barrel) type carbs. Specfically, with my gasser, at 1/2 throttle, I get 6300 RPM, and WOT I get 6700RPM....not much diff from 1/2 to WOT. The linkage is smooth and linear, I think the issue is that a butterfly carb doesn't work same as glow type. So my you set in a throttle curve to compnsate...? If you still make the carb go WOT or do you set the curve that its MAX RPM...even if MAX RPM is not WOT ?

Suggestions ?
