EP051 Racelogic, Sponsorship, and Valve Springs

Welcome to our show Unsealed: Life Beyond the Bolts! Each week, Kate Dillon from Crate Insider and Steve Hendren from Hendren Racing Engines go live on the Crate Insider Facebook page to chat about world events, random things, and to answer tech questions.

This Week

We have a had an exciting week prepping for the Racelogic Chassis School that will take place this weekend. Okay, so Steve hasn’t prepared for the class yet, but he works best off script anyway…right? We had so much fun with this show, answering tech and sponsorships questions is definitely our wheelhouse.

Questions Asked On The Show

Ford offers a crate have you heard of any series or tracks allowing them?
What’s the best fuel in a 604?
Was Hendren Racing Engines doing any sponsorship?
With alot of 604 engines coming available locally and to use in non spec classes. Are they worth rebuilding with better parts to increase performance power?
Yes, we can use any heads, crank, rods & pistons. Are the blocks worth re-using and building a good power plant with?
Local 602 rules… MSD 6AN,6ALN or HEI with soft box, all with 6300 limit chip. Which do you suggest?
On my new 602 with the factory valve springs. Is it a advantage to replace the new springs for a matched set.. or should I just run the factory set then upgrade later?
What do you think the new ct525 bumped rpm to 7500 in Usra mods is going to do to us?
Do they make a oil primer on like an oberg to prime the motor with a drill instead of using the starter?
