what are the limits on roller rocker setups before stepping up to a shaft mount system on solid roller. thunder racing offers a stud girdle setup for my car for way less than a shaft mount system. i have the comp magnum rockers with the bigger upgraded studs( 7/16 i think) just looking for some opinions and advice.

for a drag car i think 7/16 studs and girdle will take you pretty far. for road racing i would do shafts.
if you have the money shafts will always be better, though.

i have run mine up to 7k without a girdle, but i normally shift it before then. 7/16" studs with comp magnums. my cam is a weenie, though. hydro roller 23x/24x .560/.586 or something like that.

i believe jaker's 68 camaro has a pretty dang massive solid roller. he's running 7/16 studs with girdles on it. im thinking it was like 250/260 duration and .650 lift or something like that.

hmm... this is interesting. i am running sbc guideplates and sbc centerbolt valvecovers on my lt1. it is possible there could be a slightly different spacing between the pairs of rockers though....

from google searches id say no...probably gonna order these and then tap them to the valve cover bolts to the girdle http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CSP-G1100/ in theory it should work.
