Everyone thinks a cam like the XP or S1X is the same as rockers. Whatcha think now, are they the same? I can see the smile on your face in the vid

I've left my cam sensor unplugged and never come up with no spark. It must have been the grounding out that kept it unhappy.

If you head to Kevin'*, lemme know. I'll leave here and try to race you there. I can probably pick up some time while you are going around the lakes.

Last of all.. Gee Kevin, is that an S1X cam sitting on your self collecting dust instead of putting a smile on your face?

It had to have been the grounding. Seems like it took the whole ignition system off line. As soon as I took care of the ground, it fired right up, a small stumble at first and then ran fine.

Yes, I'm taking it out Monday when I have off work.

And to answer Bill, from what I hear, and have so far felt, big difference.
