i have a camshaft sheet in my hands now from speed-pro in dandy, in it had cams by crane cams labeled as blue racer cams. there is 1 in there with the same specs as a crane 246 for $134
The owner also told me something interesting over the phone about the lifters too, said they are all made in the same place then labeled up as crane/crow etc. solid lifter set was $140
anyways i was wondering if anyone uses these blue racer cams?
Alot of parts all come from the same factories, but dont all use the same materials, or conform to the same specifications, you may get lucky with a cheaper part that they used better stuff as they had to meet an order and had no cheap stuff on hand, but you generally get what you pay for in todays world, long gone are the days of the cheap bargain being as good as the real product, but having said that there is some top price crap out there too.
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
i have used the blue racer cams a few times on various motors all where driven daily with regular thrashing and never had one die, as far as i know most of those engines r still alive, and your correct blue racer cams are actually crane ( it says so on the box ) and most do come from the same factory you are paying for the brand at the end of the day not always the quality.

A degree wheel of some sort and a dial indicator make it easy.
blue racers are a reasonable cam.
But i've never installed a blue racer with either standard or aftermarket timing gears that have dialled in at zero. some have been close, but 1 in particular was 12 degrees out. 12 degrees retarded timing will not give the results desired.
