We've got an open engine rule which is governed by a claim. The more you spend on the motor the better your chances of loosing it to a claim are (You all know the drill) We're allowed to put anything in the motor but you might not take it home after the feature...
My question is this: I've always been accustomed to putting the best parts I could afford into my engines. To the next guy that may not be good stuff, but it's the best I can do. I've run the Scorpion roller rockers for three years no and haven't had the first problem with them, but It would kill me to see those bad boys get gone in a claim. What can I effectivly get by with as far as "babyshoes" go? I mean how much cam lift and duration, and would I be safe in using a solid lift grind? At what point should I consider a "long slot" rocker? Thanks for your input!

My guuess would be around .500 or so and probably about .234-.250 @.o50 duration but I always left the centerline open say 110 or 112 I always felt that the close centers were harder on the valve train but like I say but Its just an opinion
