Whats the specs and what stages are available? Are the made by Web?
Web cam billets are not out YET. Rumor has it, it wont be to much longer and they are going to cost just under 200. But I dont think Rocket Factory is starting to sell them just yet. But I am curious who is doing you cams Rocket?

No core charge, cheaper to make, bit stronger, all one piece and all brand new material.
Most cams, require cores. This is due to the fact the cam companies, take you old cam weld more material (metal) on the lobs of the cam then grind and machine the the lobs to then new specs. They call these regrinds.
Altho theres generally not a problem with this its much stronger to produce a cam out of one solid new block of metal, then to weld more material onto an exsiting cam/piece of metal and then regrind them to your new specs.

OH ok gotcha, Thanks for the explanation.
So a billit cam would be a little lighter then. Any reduction in rotating mass is allways good.
Rev's a little quicker. I used to race gas powered R/C cars and trucks on a national level and I allways tried to reduce weight throughout the drivetrain using titanium axles drive shafts, transmission gears, clutch bell etc.
Worked like a charm everytime.

Im not so sure its going to be that much lighter. I am sure it will be a little lighter tho, but i woudnt expect it to be enought to makeany real differences. Maybe someone else could comment on if indeed this would be alot lighter and by how much. I really dont know for sure on that. Thanks JIM

Billet cams are much more reliable. As far as rotating mass reduction you're best off looking at the flywheel I would think.
