Hi from Perth.

I was putting together a set of triple CD-175 Stromberg's
for my mates 202. I was thinking why did Peter brock win
so many races with a XU-1 202 compared to his first Holden
race car, which was a HR Premier with a 186S.

Well a photo says 1000 words - A double barrel WW Stromberg
(for a 186S) put next to one of the CD-175's.

Not a fan of cd strommies or su's. They have no accelerator pump. Put foot to floor, count to ten and away you go. Gotta wait for the vacuum to lift the needles for fuel to go in. Maybe good for Circuit racing, not too crash hot off the line.

Run the right oil in them, tune them properly, have good carbies that aren't sucking air trough worn throttle shaft bushes and they don't have a flat spot.
I've had new triple SUs and reconditioned CD Strombergs and had no troubles.
