"Roundy-round" = circle track.

Be sure the timing tab/damper line is really showing you true TDC. Info on the different timing tabs/damper lines is here. Info on determining TDC is here.

That cam is not so big that the timing needs to be locked at full advance. Won't hurt if it's race-only, but if you drive it on the street much you can use an advance curve. If you go to a smaller cam, or want better street manners, I agree to use a dual plane like the RPM.

Good luck.
