EP053 Game Stop, Bump Stops, and Gifted Scotch

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

Kate has had a busy week editing the Racelogic Chassis School to check out the latest uploaded class, click here. She also took a road trip to pick up the NEW Crate Insider van! Steve is still dwindling down the number of rebuilt engines in the shop, and of course sharing his opinions via Facebook in meme language. 

Today we discussed our latest NEW product, the Allgaier Bump Stop. To check it out in our online store, click here.

Questions Asked On The Show

Is there a good on car valve spring tester for the CT525?
Do you think the mufflers would help an open motor?
My 604 gets warm on heavy drivey tracks. Rad is clean. What size thermostat do you recommend, and could it be a gear ratio problem?
Does running 10 to 12 nights before changing valve springs sound pretty common with most 604 guys?
Dropping down from open motor mod to 602 mod “imca”, explain why the performance 602 says unleaded gas only and will 110 be ok?
What do you think about mods and sport mods racing at Bristol??
Do you think with the crate insider mufflers you gain to much bottom end (open motor 2 barrel crusa street stock) and it kills top end ?
