I believe you are referring to the V3. The V2 only has .600 lift on both the intake and exhaust.

Also, i just called Texas speed, and he was not aware of any issues with the yella terra? He said...

Well i ordered the Straub kit, but then ended up scoring a set of Yella Terra roller rockers on here with very low miles for a good price, so I'm going that direction instead.

I also ordered a set...

Yeah i'm not thrilled. The car is a toy, I'm not saying i don't beat on it a bit, but it's definitely not a race car being pushed to the limits. This is obviously a design problem with the parts,...
