Thanks T-bait, I am not an experianced Builder so i appreciate any good advice, and realize that you have to take any thing on this forum with a grain of salt, but you sound like a guy who wont BS someone if you do'nt know the answer. It's interesting your thoughts about cam timing, and it makes sence that a little more lift might limit over rev. I guess thats why HRC adds duration but keeps stock lift. I'm going to use Web cams, as they seem to be used by many of the builders. They have a cam that is almost identical to the HRC, but with a slight bit more lift. They give you all there recomended timing numbers, i will probably stick with, as thats what most likely builders ask for.
I also agree the build is where the reliability comes from, i have the shop service manual and will be meticulessly blue-printing everthing, but one thing i do'nt know is how tight you can get the valve to piston clearance? Web cams lititure says .080 , but with increased comp and more duration, lift won't things be tighter than that?
Any way it is good hear your family is so involved together in racing. My son and i have had some great battles, pushing each other to quicker lap times, just hope i can hang on long enough to race with our grandson, now that would be cool!
