Confused probably isn't the right word.

My mind is made up as to what I will do with the ignition and that is to have a curve.

However, just to ease my own curiosity I am trying to get a better understanding of when locked timing can be effective. Some things in this thread made me believe there is more to it then JUST the camshaft. Maybe I misunderstood and the cam really is the only determining factor.
