I don't have the cam card in front of me but am 99% sure that is the same cam in this vintage dirt track car. This is my 14 year old grandson on the track in his 2nd practice session on the track. He had raced go carts before but first time in a race car. With the gear we had in that day we were turning around 6000 RPM. Oh yeah, this is a 240 not a 300.

The engine in my truck almost never gets to 1/2 of what yours is turning, BUT if mine sounded like yours, I would be tempted! :)

That 240 sounded REALLY good at Lakeside speedway in Kansas when Ford6man27 & I raced there a few years back. I have watched the video his wife kindly taped & sent to me many times. It's one of my prized possesions. At one point we are side by side as we pass by the camera.

About halfway through the feature we were in, Ford6man27 with his 240 and a heavily modified Chevy 292 went around me. I tried a low line that didn't work. However, I had the best seat in the packed house to watch those two go at it. It was awesome. Three inlines leading the balance of the v8 powered field. That was a great night...and we got paid too. What a deal. All of us inline guys gained quite a bit of respect after that event. Sure was fun.

To motzingg: don't turn my 300 up to 6,000 often. Most of the time 5-5,500 is it. I've raced it five years & it still runs well.

A 240 built right will last VIRTUALLY FOREVER at 6K.

I built one that had a long career in a drag car, then sold it to circle track team, they raced for two years (reportedly abusing the heck out of it (overheating it, over-revving it, etc.)) with no ill effects.

6000 RPM in an engine with only a 3.18 stroke and 6.79 rods and a relatively restrictive head (compared to aftermarket V8 heads) aint nothin'.
