when choosing a cam do you look for more hp or more tq? i know you need tq to shoot out of the corner, but you need hp to get down the straightaway! or do you try too equal them out? thanks for your time!!

I'd suggest talking to Charles at Camcraft Cams. He's a forum sponsor and will teach you as much as he can.

I would agree with racer17j track configuration, size, trans type and gears all play a roll in cam selection best is to talk to a cam company or multiple companys to have them help you out and be able to give them as much info as you can..

I also beleive it depends on the motor you can afford to build. A heavy crank, heavy piston motor may take a differnt cam. I have been a budget racer for years and the large cams don't seem to work as well with heavy piston 2 barrel motors even when you have alot of compression.
