Just a word of warning to those of you building up motors. It seems that all new cams available are of the slot drive type. Your star or pin drive oil pumps won't work. Fine, sez you, I'll just buy a

GREAT video! Thanks for the link. Clearly from the exhaust note he's running the metro turbo 1275 with extensive mods. His stated top speed of 90+MPH suggests he still uses a ribcase. Very nice bugey
