Carb question!

I have an Amc 360 bored .040 over with a mild rv cam and and Edelbrock performer intake. I currently have a Carter 500 AFB with offroad needles on it currently. I know that carburetors aren't that great for offroading, but there has to be a better carb than this. It consistently floods out on an incline and will not start up till level again. Please any recommendations for a different carb would be appreciated.

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
