    Anyone using the R&D VTS quick shift cam

    Anyone using the R&D VTS quick shift cam?? I'm interested in knowing if this would yield any results just bolting it on. Any increase in mph? Would it work well with a 3 degree nozzle? Any fine tuning necessary?

    Thanks

    I have it. The only advantage I see with it is that you can make adjustments on the go. I don't think it gained me any speed.

    He's correct. Being that it has a lower sweep travel you can "fine" tune around the sweet spot where it runs the best. I've found that mine is the fastest around the "N" position.

    Quick question, I went to install one today and the threaded end of the screw-in post that you need to screw into the R&D cam is way too long. I mean I need to cut off ~3/8" just so that I can mount the cam as it sticks up so far past the hole that it hits the body it mounts into, is this normal? Before I cut it off with a hacksaw, I just want to make sure I'm not overlooking something completely obvious... and yes I have the round end sticking out of the countersunk circle.

    I had to cut mine off. No big deal. I also added a drop of loctite to the threads.

    Thanks, I did the same. Agree it wasn't a big deal just wanted to make sure I wasn't somehow missing some obvious reason why the screw wasn't just supposed to stick out the back of the cam before I cut it...

    How long did it take you guys to put in? Was thinking about trying one out.

    I had to trim the threaded end of the ball on mine too.


    Did anyone notice that their R&D VTS had a lot of vertical play? I was considering adding a washer in there as a shim to tighten it up some.

    Taking my time it took me about 1hr. Mine had a little vertical play, not enough to worry about.
