CAR 3400lbs STREET STOCK FAST/STEEP BANKED 1/2 MILE TRACK WITH FAST CORNERS
355 WITH .150 DOME EDELBROCK PERFORMER RPM WITH HOLLEY 750 462 HEADS .62CC
AND HEADERS...275/60/15 D.O.T. TIRES...
350 TRANNY IN 1ST GEAR==256 REAR GEARS(2800-7000 rpms).

I HAVE ACCESS TO THE FOLLOWING 3 SOLID CAMS:

278/282 248/252 @.50 IN. 530 EX. 542
290/298 258/266 @.50 IN. 540 EX. 558
280/290 240/250 @.50 IN. 520 EX. 520
I HAVE RAN THE 278/282 BUT THOUGHT I MAY CHANGE IF ONE OF THESE OTHERS WERE BETTER.
ANYBODY RUNNING A COMBINATION CLOSE TO THIS OR HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED....THANKS......"DOUBLE BARREL"

I ran the 280/290 in my street stock a couple years ago and liked real well it was quick out of the hole and pulled hard to the end of straight. I was on a 4/10 mile high banked track.

I would stick with either the 248/252 0.050 or if you feel you need more bottom and midrange id switch to the 240/250 @ 0.050. The other cam that is 258/266 in my opinion is way to big for your engine. For the rpms you turn and the weight of the car i woudl stick with a smaller grind.

The 248/252 is a real good cam for a SS. It has stong power to about 6500.
