And there ya go! Adjusting the valves before “EVERY RACE” while a street car… once a year at best once it’s dialed in…. Dang! I check but haven’t bothered in years.I got my third X!! Glad I am stimulating the thread.
The only experience that I have with solid cams is from dirt track racing days. We adjusted the valves before every race night.
Race car = high maintenance
Street strip = medium maintenance
Stock = low maintenance
No argument there. A good HFT is all ya need…. Now we need to know his goal. A solid is not a bad choice ether. Generally I would only recommend it for more RPM.Hydraulic cams are what Mother Mopar put in the majority of its vehicles, even muscle cars that meet the OPs criteria.
90% street & 10% strip.
I wouldn’t have any hard feeling ether. Stock HP factory cars were bad *** but… compared to today, not so much.I'm getting older and softer, I guess, & don't see the point of maximum horsepower in these old classic cruisers, they are already bad *** from the factory. He asked for opinions, there is mine, with explanation. No hard feelings on my end.
