In this segment Lake Speed Jr heads on over to Petty’s Garage in North Carolina to take a deep dive into bearings with Mahle’s Dan Begle.

From bearing design to types, coatings and applications, Dan and Lake break down the “whys”, “hows”, and “whats” of selecting and troubleshooting bearings in all types of high performance engines. (We also learn how Dan explains bearing substrates using orange Jello.)

Following the class at Petty’s Garage, Dan joins Joe Castello and AERA’s Chuck Lynch in studio for a live Q&A session from the viewing audience.
