I would like to start up a issue with which camshaft to run for a imca hobby stock, or simular class. Some use cheap $60 cams, like a midwest, or other ones that are more pricey like a comp cam. there are alot of cams that have the same grind #s but just dont perform the same, Which cam have you had luck with on a 1/3 mile track. Lets hear your opinions.

I am curious to know the rest of the setup, without knowing what else is in the engine how can you recommend a cam?

call midwest, tell them what you have, and let them suggest the best one for your situation

better yet dont call midwest....call comp cams tech line and answer some questions...they will recommend the best cam for your application. it may cost a little more but well worth it!

right at the molment i wouldn't call midwest for advice or get any machine work done there prerty much the entire machine shop has left over the last couple years as far as i know they don't have anybody with a whole lot of knowledge or yearts under there belts back in the shop
500 there isn't much secret to what guys are running in imca hobby everybody is on flatops and 76cc heads not much else you can do

That makes sense, thanks 17j, luckily we don't have IMCA stock cars here.

actully the 360 cid 9-1 comp rule is a great rule levels the feild we used to run no comp and no cid limit and the same 2-3 guys won every week last year we had 8 different guys win. helps guys like me that can't afford to run a bunch of hifi stuff be competative with a good driver and good handling car
