In this segment we head down to the shop floor to talk to the most well-balanced man in performance engines, CWT IndustriesRandy Neal, about three mistakes you should never make when balancing a crankshaft.

From bobweight location to drilling out counterweights, Neal covers the big balancing mistakes people make, and how to avoid them.

As a bonus, he also dispels some myths about over-balancing versus under-balancing, and why you should always lighten the piston rather than the crank.
