It is a well-known fact that many companies can go through the motions of grinding cams. However the horsepower
ultimately delivered by a camshaft is determined long before it ever reaches a grinding machine.The fact
of the matter is that regardless of how well the grinding process is executed, a cam is only as good as the design
and engineering being applied.
Better Engineering Is The Real HP Secret
Sure,we utilize state-of-the-art CNC cam grinding equipment operated by expert craftsman with decades of experience.
But the real secret to making more usable horsepower can be traced to the COMP Cams® engineering
department. They spend thousands of hours designing and testing camshaft concepts until the optimal lobe
designs and matching components are found.That’s why comparing camshafts that at first glance seem to have
similar lift and duration numbers just doesn’t tell the whole story.You owe it to your racing fortunes to look
beyond a few general specs, to the hundreds of other critical specifications, measurements and tolerances that
make the difference between middle of the pack and victory lane.
Direct Technology Transfer Delivers More HP
By selecting a COMP Cams® GoParts™ camshaft you can rest easy knowing that the same design technology and
engineering prowess that powers winners in the world’s most competitive forms of motorsports are integrated
into your Kart or Jr.Dragster cam. In racing, there are many variables beyond your control; however, choosing the
proper camshaft is not one of them.
Three Step Process For Cam Preperation
All stock class camshafts are rough ground, then flame hardened,
then the camshaft is finish ground. This gives the COMP Cams®
GoParts™ camshaft extreme hardness and exceptional durability
over ANY camshaft on the market. With the high acceleration rates
of today’s camshafts, it takes quality to finish the race
with a legal camshaft!
All of our camshaft combinations provide a true horsepower gain.
All camshafts were developed on an Inertia Wheel (acceleration)
Dynamometer followed by track testing. This superior testing equipment
and aggressive track testing allow us to accurately develop the
fastest and best components for your racing dollar. This superior
testing equipment gives us the opportunity to measure the engines
ability to accelerate a load. Water brake and hydraulic dynos measure
the engines ability to resist a load. It is for this reason that
our camshaft combinations perform on the race track superior to
You get what you pay for! COMP Cams® has been grinding the fastest
camshafts in the world for over three decades. This quality and
accuracy in grinding is manifested in our GoParts™ camshaft
line. Quality in grinding, quality in durability, quality in performance.
