Default Chris straub camshaft feedback

Hi guys,
I would just leave feedback about CSTRAUB who designed me a custom grind solid roller cam to match my 460 BB.
Unfortunately I didn't bring the car to the dyno with the new cam so I only have a feeling on how the car goes but I can tell you it's a big improvement.
I just told him what combo I had and what's my goal, now I still have 15" of vacuum like I had with my old magnum comp cams but now car runs 12.6 @ 110 and best of all it improved my mileage by 3 miles !!!
Chris also provided all the valvetrain parts at a really good price and a very good support to do the job right.
There's several knoledgeable TC members who build engines, trans and axles or sell parts and Chris is one of them.

Last word for all foreign members, I live in France and Chris was very good on shipping too.

Laurent.

Good Post Chris deserves more "atta boy's " ..... I am another Foreign" "customer with similar experience My Straub Solid Roller continues to run great yes more power and quicker than last " custom" cam of similar duration and lift ........but even better its so easy on valve train no issues and running it harder than ever

Got a solid roller and lifters from him. Happy with the results and especially the cam was advertised (pulls strong all the way but is just as happy shifting at 6000 rpms)

X2 Chris furnished me with one of his solid roller designs for my 427 bbc. Great cam! He as well as many others on this site know their stuff.

Why is it we never have time or money to do it the right way in the beginning but we always have time and money to do it over again?

I also got my 350 cam, Lifters, springs and pushrods from Chris This past winter. Great service and the phone support is the best in the industry! Got her back on the road and she runs Great. Now just waiting on Summit as I purchased a new 600 Quick Fuel Slayer last fall that has some issues. Planning on swapping it out for there 680 HR VS series next week. May give me a little more on the top end. Cant wait to get her back on the road again!

I have an HR 780 VS - they seem like nice carbs. Check the accel pump arm where it pivots on it's stud, mine was a little tight which kept the pump arm from returning to pump cam.

I heard calling Straub to make more power is going to be grounds for ejection at many tracks. It is cheating, I tell ya- cheating to call him to make more power and spend less money. And don't get me started on those bogus cam card numbers!
