I had a set of black mikes coils that crapped out on me, and they did a really good impersonation of a carb problem. So good that I went into the carbs four or five times before I finally decided...

You don't need clippy slots to booger up late model slides - just get that plastic donut on the wrong side of the clip and I can pretty much guarantee you problems. Which is why I say it's a good...
