EP061 Crate Tech, Bunnies, and Celebrations

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

This week is a very special week for everyone! Crateinsider.com celebrated its 7 year anniversary, and the Unsealed-Life Beyond the Bolts show has been in production for a full year! We celebrated with a couple of margaritas and of course Steve’s (basic) Ultra.
