How many races do most of you get out of your flat tappet cams. Or at least how often do you change them.

I have one that is 3 years/75 races on it and cant decide whether to put a new one in or keep running it.

I've got one with probably 100+ nights on it. Not sure if I know that it's worn out or not. I reckon as long as there are no flat lobes or big scratches it would work. Might wanna have it magnafluxed. I've never broken a cam so I guess I don't know when to say when. lol

I run them a full season about 35-40 races I try to get a new one each year But I have given some away that have been run several more years and have used them myself for a backup in the season Clean oil and a good oiling system are the life of your internals cam included
