I used to get flames I think when I had my Bailey dump valve on and straight through exhaust, as I took the throttle off quickly the control unit couldn't registet the unuesd air and fuel, resulting in a brief overfueling being sent straight down the exhaust. I used to love lighting up dark streets and scaring the heighbours..
