I had a .660 lift solid roller in a race car and pulled the covers off about 6 weekends in a row. It needed adjusting only the first 2 and after pulling them for the next 4 weekends and not needing any adjustment, I ran the car for about a month and it still didn't need anything. The car always ran the number so I quit pulling the covers off. At the end of the season, they were only .002 off. It just depends on how aggressive your cam is and how good the rockers hold. A buddy used the same brand rockers I did but ran a 610 lift flat tappet and couldn't keep it adjusted at all. It backed off on every single freaking pass. New set of locks or rockers didn't help....
