We need to purchase a solid lift small base circle cam for a small block Chevy. The price and specs of Speedway's "Tight Lash Cam" look good and JR Motorsports have cams that appear to be Lunati copys, that I can afford. Does anyone know if they come in a small base circle? Any other suggestions for different manufacturer. I would like to be in the $150 (or less) range for cam and lifters. I'm open to suggestions and would appreciate any help.

alot of the drivers where i race run a midwest #8 0r a #3 cam. they have lots of pull off the corner and plenty left in the striaghts. i drove a car for a guy last year and it was around 3700 pounds with the #8 and it was awsome. we bought the car and are pulling alot of weight out of it. hope this helps. you can also call one of the sponsors for this site (cam craft) i have heard alot of good things about them as well.

Thanks Guys; Hey "AndyKMod" I've been looking hard at your cam and the #110812 (it's just a little smaller) also. Our car should be in the 3200 lb range and turn between 6500 and 7000 RPM. What do you think? Thaks again!!
