These are not for race application
I understand that your work is important, I'm serious about offering a performance upgrade for the enthusiast looking for more horsepower and more torque than the OEM equipment provides, these are not race engines. My race engine components steer down a path that can only be construed as the highest of high performance products used only by the pinnacle of race engine builders, some of the kit components are part of that, some aren't. If you think these kits will fail, so be it, I know they won't and wouldn't offer them if there was the slightest chance they would. How hard is it for you to see the inherent valve these products possess. Good Luck with engine project.
Our cam department is not interested in old school design and it's inherent weaknesses. All new profiles are underway using the latest technology to provide multifaceted application.
MBZ stock cams and my upgrades are a happy combination and that's all folks. The stock components didn't fail what make you the experts who can suggest that ultra modern materials engineered by the best in the world are only going to last just a few hot laps, that's BS buddy, take a hike.
PS; publish your valve train harmonic calculations in a performance thread for a lively debate. I'm sure it will be educational.
