I agree with that 100%.

If it were up to me every motor I build would have a solid roller cam. There is so much interpretation with Hydraulics. Solids are easy...the feeler guage don't lie!

yea, plus there's the crazy power advantage, unfortuantely you have to lash the valves every few oil changes... but that's soothing to some of us idiots.

I will never adjust the rockers on a motor running, i feel its a waste of time and energy....but you can't convince everyone to do things the easy and right way in this world all the time

Yeah I would rather adjust the lash every 6 months and never worry about cam failure.
