I worry about running a solid roller on the street. I have been told that in racing apps the mechanical roller stuff lives in a world of low rpms and high rpms. Fast acceleration, and stoping. This driving gives the lifter plenty of oil. I was told that using a mechaincal roller on the street at constant rpms would starve the lifters/cam of oil and cause problems. True or false???
