                Speedway Tight Lash cams produce a broad range of power due to the short amount of cam degrees it takes to go from .020" lift to .050" cam lift. This is known as major intensity. The shorter the span the more torque the lobe will produce, and for the lobe to run excellent up at higher RPM, it must have an excellent area under the curve. You can tell these do because of the very high duration at .200" cam lift. 

    Compare our numbers to other cam profiles and you will find that these are far superior!

    Our solid flat tappet cams offer superior performance and the very best value. These grinds are tried and tested!

    Note: This cam is not drilled for an accessory drive. Many sprint cars use a fuel pump, power steering, or dry sump oil pump mounted to the rear of the engine which is driven off of the back of the camshaft. This requires that the cam be drilled and tapped for the drive spud. Our flat tappet cams DO NOT have this modification. (Our roller cams already have this modification incorporated when manufactured.)

    If you are running a sprint or modified that uses a rear cam accessory drive and your local rules dictate that you run a flat tappet cam, you will have to take the cam to a competent machinist and have it drilled and tapped for the drive spud.

    Thumpr Camshafts are a new series of retro-fit hydraulic roller and hydraulic flat tappet cams designed for use in a variety of small and big block V8s. The aggressive exhaust note of a Thumpr cam comes from a combination of early exhaust valve opening, long exhaust duration and a generous amount of intake and exhaust overlap - maximizing the rough-idling characteristics of the cams without negatively impacting power or streetability.
