So "Cam King" Mike - Nice to see you offering another cam run ! I bought a set of Stage 2 N/A before, is this 2020 run the " new lightweight " cam design I heard about ? Is it just the drive end has been machined down from a full circle on the older heavy cam design to roughly a rectangle like the H-D OEM cams to save weight ? How much approximate weight is saved and what is the advantage - quicker revving ? Any disadvantage like more cam chain vibration / slapping vs the larger gyro mass of the old cam design acting like a cam drive system damper ? Thanks for any info ! (y) :cool:

I don't know how much lighter they are, then our old designs. Besides removing material on the flange, we removed some material on the barrel. The only advantage, is the reduction in rotating weight. There's no disadvantage.

Hey CamKing Mike - So we need 9 more cam set buys for the run ? We had a little discussion here about the correct Stg 3 cam for an engine that has been bored to 4.25" + .25" and stroked 3/8" with +2MM intake + 1.8MM Exhaust valves - is your box Stg 3 cam designed to work with greatly modified engines like this or basically for stock bore & stroke ? If you had to design a cam set for this 1487cc engine would it be different than your current Stg 3 cam to optimize it for that Bore & Stroke, Valves and if so how much more would it be to run a custom cam, & what minimum # of cam sets ? Thanks Mike

No, we don't need to sell all 20 sets. As soon as the cam cores are ready to grind, we will start grinding the orders we have.
The Stage 3 were designed for "Big Bore" racing engines. With a Big bore and stroke, they would act like the Stage 2 acts in a stock stroke engine.

Great, sounds good on 9 more sets not needed to grind the current orders so if guys here want a set they need to get their orders in because there will be no more than 20 total complete cam sets, maybe less if any are rejected correct ? Good to know the Stg 3 cams act like a Stg 2 in a stock bore, stroke & valved engine - that sounds perfect. So really the Stg 3 is not optimum for a stock engine configuration - best to go to Stg 2 max & leave it at that ( unless you go big bore, stroke & valves - ) Thx. Mike
