Join the four amateurs: Steve (Woodchuck), Brad (Hollywood), Colt (Train) and Nick (Lefty) here at B Squad Hotrod. We're just a bunch of amateurs getting to the meat and bolts of restoring and repairing real cars for our enjoyment. And hopefully for your education and enjoyment. Because educating us...that's impossible.

Episode 0018 - Brakes by B Squad

Lefty retells skidding off the road and gets a score of 6.3 from the judges.  Then we all jump into the brake system.  Wondering off topic no less than 3 times(and probably more).  CAUTION!  there is an unpleasant hissing in this episode.  See the show links below.

***1:04:50 CAUTION:  Unpleasant audio hissing here the show’s end due to an education for train on why not to hiss into the mic.  While hilarious, it does make some (Like Lefty) throw out their ear buds.
