The Star Racing cams, perhaps unknown to most in Italy, are having some success overseas and are now starting to have admirers in our Italian colony as well.
One of the reasons for their success is due to the fact that they give back, at least in part, a nice “potato potato” sound to the Milwaukee Eight engines falsely accused of being engines for Japanese scooters.
Judging by the video the sound is rather evocative, but the cams are also performing?
In our DynoJet Tuning Center we did the tuning of a 2019 Softail Fat Bob 114″ equipped with Star Racing 30/30, a Screamin’ Eagle air filter and a TBR 2 into 1 exhaust.
Although they are not the easiest cams to set up, the results in terms of power, torque and driveability are excellent: 115hp and 124 ft-lbs measured at the rear wheel in 5th gear.
A luxurious 2021 CVO Limited with Wood 22XE cam has finally arrived at the Tuning Center. Finally, because I’ve been waiting for quite a while to tune the Wood cams, which are very well spoken about and show remarkable torque/power numbers.
The 131″ Screamin’ Eagle Stage IV is the new high-end kit to increase the performance of Milwaukee Eight engines. According to the manufacturer’s specifications, it develops 123hp of power and 178 N-m of torque measured at the wheel.
