[DMCForum] Re: cam shafts

Excellent reading. Thanks Martin.

I read "cylinder heads, Part I" where it discusses valve area and
increasing the number of valve per cyl, but I couldn't find anything
about cam duration other than the fact that longer duration gives
more power and if you go -too- long, the engine will run poorly at
lower speeds which is fine for racing but not for the street.

I didn't see any figures and I didn't see a "Part II". I'll check
again tho.
