Hey guys I agree with with Rob I'm VERY skeptical of what the esuperbike shop says. I have asked Gary about cams and look at the answer he sent me. Basiclly he was saying that Web Cams and Rath don't know what they are doing. Web Cams for one has been around forever and I've used their cams before they worked great. With a response like the one I got, I'm not sure about the esuperbike shop. The idea behind a performance cam for racing is peak power, it's understood by all that you will sacrafice some on the bottom. It seems like they were just pushing the 580 kit. As for the ariforce kit, just add some vents to your box and re-jet it yourself and save $100, which can be put toward a pipe or ignition.

Gary, I've posted this question to you twice before with no responses. I know you're busy, but just a quick answer would be nice. Are you going to have cams available? If so, when and what are the specs.? Or should I just go to WEB Cams or Rath for a set. Thank you.

calm your horses my man. cams have not made it to the table for one reason. WE WILL NOT OFFER A CAM UNLESS IT HELPS POWER EVERYWHERE. anyone can make a cam, but we dont want to make a cam that gives more in one area & loses in another. out of every thing we do, cams are the HARDEST. unfortunaly, anyone can offer a cam, & 99.99% they suck. you will see a gain in very peak hp, but it is dead down low, & you will have to bump the compression way up just to make it drivable. the art of camshaft design is understood by few, but wasted on many. right now we havent found a total package that we are completely satsfied with. the predator engine platform was really designed to be a bigger engine. thats why the head pipe is big, big head etc, & that is why our 580 kit works so well. it is what really works in conjuction with everything else. the cams now are big, so we are just working on timing them for ultimate results as well as open & closing speeds. be patient, & dont go wasting your money.
