"crawler" camshaft

I got the engine that I'm running in my F-toy from a friend a while back. It's got an engblder cam in it. He said it's "an engbldr RV 270*, .430 duration IIRC (highest you can go without clearancing valve/guides cam with 65# valve springs". The header is TRD racing from toyota.

The motor runs great and is fun to drive but I have a lot of trouble with throttle control when I'm trying to crawl stuff.

I don't have the stock cam, so I will probably order and new cam soon, probably within the next couple days. I want something a little more "crawler" oriented. Any recomendations?

thx-pat

Call LC Engineering, tell them what you are trying to accomplish and I'm sure they can set you up.

Bypass the LC stick, go with the C270FT. This is the cam used by TrailGear.

The DOA motor is working great! I wouldn't change anything about it.
