Picking up from where they left off after the oil level on the dyno test in episode 50, Lake speed Jr and Ben Strader head back in-studio where they’re joined by Charles Navarro of LN Engineering for a whiteboard session what they learned.
The guys discuss the differences between street and racing oils, and the things that affect oil performance (temperature, engine application, etc.). They also detail some of their own experiences, the tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way, and why testing and measuring oil temperature and levels is key to not leaving any horsepower on the table.
Finally, the trio provides a whole bunch of resources viewers can use to get the knowledge they need to which oil to use, when to use it, and how much they’re going to need when the rubber meets the road.
