    Is a cam worth the money and trouble?

    What kind of gains are we talkin about seeing with a rotax racing cam? And are all those light weight tid bits worth the money?

    Yes, you can get more power out of the racing cam, but i found that you had to play around with the cam timing to find it.

    Couldn't you just duplicate roughly the same timing on another ski and get similar results as long as both were modded alike?

    I don't know what the dyno numbers are. Maybe Mark Underwood will know.

    Sounds tempting. Mike if i do this build up on the GTX i need someone to help me make a list of parts to get me to 70mph. I'm starting to think i need to just take the 383 stroker out of my camaro i'm trying to sell and put it in the GTX. Hmm....a lot of extra weight but man 550hp?
