Please give me your honest advise on the Cam combination for the 2l Road engine built with 45 carbs VX Head and CR10:1
How different will the engine response be with these combinations of which I want to purchase on set from GC within the next few weeks;
2B GC Cames
3A and 2B GC Cams
3A/3A GC Cams

Intend is a stable and durable engine with low RPM torque and good response but City driveable and not nervous.

Many thanks,
GC #154

I think it will detonate at 10/1 - even with standard cams the CR is too high..
