a tacky track takes alot more hp than a dry slick track with a stock 2300 motor on a dry slick track against big motors the stock one will handel and be faster but then when the track starts getting tacky it will take a lot more motor so then with a stock motor on a tacky track against them big motors your gonna go backwords so be looking for that lap flag to get to the bottom

Run a little less roll out on the rear in the heats (will add some gear). And maybe advance the cam a little, the go back to origional setup for main.

right now the cams advance 4 degrees, if i move it more what differnce will it make and will it hurt me to leave it there when the track dries out.

As a general rule, I would't advance or retard the cam more than 6 degrees. Advancing the cam will give a little more power on the bottom end and won't pull as hard up high. There's no harm in leaving it advanced even when the track is dry slick, however if your having to pedal the car comming of the corners when its dry, your may as well move the cam back a little and use the power up on the straits where you can put it to the ground.
