1971 mustang build for racing question

Hey everyone I am currently getting back to building my car again. I go to the track down here in Edinburg Texas. So I wana make my 71 a drag car. It has a 5.0 302 carb'd motor and I am trying to look at some carbs for racing. I have decided on a single 750 cfm carb but I wana get some thoughts on how I should set this car up! Plus I haven't really seen a weber on the track but they caught my attention. Thanks.
I'm currently looking at a .525 lift cam as well

Have you considered EFI setup? motorvationefi can help with wiring harness and tuning. Might give them a call. I use them for tuning.

I guess that would be the way to go if I'm going to be doing track racing..... Man it's triple the money though!

I'm also making my 1971 Mach 1 a drag car. But I bought a 650cfm 4barrel Carb, and I'm buying RAM AIR and 90/10 F 50/50 R drag shocks. I wouldn't go EFI, as I always preferred a carb, not to mention all the money and problems with it.
