Dont worry, some of us still have stock stroke clevelands. I took your advice a couple years ago and built a 7000 rpm cleveland that I drive every time I can and drag race as much as possible.
I have logged about 4000 trouble free miles on the solid flat tappet cam, and propelled my 3750 pound air conditioned convertible mustang to 8.1 in the 1/8 mile and 12.85 in the quarter. on premium pump gas. At least 100 trips down the track.
