Power and Speed.  The two single most important things to an automotive performance enthusiast.  Mike, Tom, and Tad explore a variety of racing related subjects.

Anything racing could be discussed on any given show.  From the high speed Texas mile events to the Street / Grudge scene found in the local areas we all have in our regions.

Racing guests and personalities ranging from top current professional racers to professional engine and chassis builders are already on the schedule.  The listeners are not excluded from the conversation either.  Want to call in and be part of the show?  No problem.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and SS Jeff in studio.

Our buddy Jeff stopped by tonight to fill us in on his SS that Mike has been helping him with.  The initial tunes are done and the car is solidly in the 10s.  There is more left in it, but it is a true street car.  It drives like a stock car, no meth injection, and still weighs in at 4400LBS.  It's really nice to see this working out so well, and we hope for more data soon.

Since Mike has been fumbling about with HP Tuners tonights guest is a good fit.  

Dave Steck of DSX Tuning calls in to give us some insights about stock GM PCMs.  There is no doubt some things with a stock PCM become problematic.  They pose a unique set of problems and DSX has some very nice items to help work though them.  More and more street guys are going to other than NA route to make big power and things like E85 really help.  The stock PCM has the ability to do this but you need a few things to get it going.  DSX has some great kits that are easy to install to do the hardware conversion.  After it is installed a few tweaks with HP Tuners and you are ready to go.  DSX has quite a few "make life easier things" so if you are a GM PCM guy check him out.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Matt Happel in studio.

Tonights guest is actually in studio, and that is always the best way to do it.  

Matt Happel of Sloppy Mechanics took the trip to NJ from PA to explain the mindset of Sloppy Mechanics.  Loads of people get this wrong and think it is about just bad or sloppy work.  That is NOT it at all.  Sloppy Mechanics is all about accomplishing a goal with a low investment.  Think shade tree mechanics on every form of power adder available.  The performance potential of factory, and budget, equipment is incredible if done correctly.  Sloppy Mechanics guides will get you going in the right direction... and on a budget.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

We try really hard to make sure we get some of our racing royalty on, and tonight is no exception.  

Eric Dillard of Proline Racing calls in to tell us the story Proline and how they go to where they are today.  Anyone who follows the higher end drag cars of today knows that there are a handful of companies that would be considered the goto companies, and Proline is one of them.  Proline is not just a "pro" type engine builder.  They are also responsible for the fastest Lamborghinis on the planet running out of Underground Racing's shop.  

It is always nice to hear the story of how a company got "here" from where they started.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Well, that's it.  Now sports are a political mess too.  We are all going to try to stay more clear of these issues.  All these guys should try a sport that takes real balls...ya know what we are sayin.  A little acceleration therapy might do them some good.

First caller of the night is Jake Blain.  We hate to see people have their pride and joy get trashed, and this guy had a tough time.  He lost an injector o-ring and a massive fire ensued.  Jake actually bailed out of the car before it stopped it was so bad.  He's ok, but his car isn't.  Go check out 5252rpm.com and buy a hat to help em for christ sake.  Remember, a car is always replaceable, your health is not.

ProTorque.  We have all heard the name if we follow any drag racing at all.  ProTorque is a serious player in the converter industry and Joe Rivera calls in to give some insights into business, tech, and relationships??  Joe talks about different aspects on the converter and how changes affect it's operation.  There were some very key nuggets in here about the stator, fluid relationships, and construction.  A couple of ProTorue customers call in, and we would like to have them on individually as well.  

Joe is a NYer and we would love to have him in studio if he gets out this way.

Joe is a native NYer and we would actually like to have him in studio one night when he fells like taking a ride.

Matt Blasco in The Dirty Dart with the win of PSPA and the save of the week.  (go find that on youtube!

Richard Guido with the win in the Stick Shift Challenge.  Go watch that video on youtube as well. (notice the shirt)

Hats off to Alex Corella for leaving a hurricane behind to come race, and Team 260 for a hell of a work week.

Was great to meet the above guys and all the others at this event, Even Steve Reimann from Australia with his gift of socks for Mike.  This was a good time full of great people.  We really look forward to being involved with the event next year, and like Tom says, we are winning (so don't get to comfortable Jason!)

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

OK, so it's really close.  When you are listening to this is might even be started.

Dragweek 2017 is almost here.

We have a broader listening base than we would have ever though and it is no secret the Aussies are serious car nuts.  Tonight we actually have to Australian listeners who are here right this second for Drag Week 2017.

Steve Reimann and Harry Haig both call in to share their on the road experiences so far.  Everything from blown up tow vehicles to "Home Depot browsing car guy problem solving".  This guys are great guys and we really can't wait to meet them all at Byron.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Sat night fights.  Mayweather is still the man.  Hats off to McGregor for stepping into this and making a good showing.  (and Mike lost 5 bucks)

It's always a privilege to talk to the true legends of our sport, and tonight is one of those nights.  

Tonight on Power and Speed Kenny Duttweiler calls in to the show for, in his words, an open forum discussion.  Kenny has been a long time performance enthusiast and from an early age spent his time reading the magazines of the day.  Listen as he tells how the beginnings launched the career of what would be one of the racing legends of our time.  From the salt flats of Bonneville to the drag strips across the country Kenny Duttweiler powered vehicles have shaped the way we view turbocharges and drag racing.

Mike, Tom, Fireman Jeff, and Tad in studio.

 

Fireman Jeff is in studio and he is the luckiest man around about now.  He broke a lifter, and hurt nothing else in the process.  That NEVER happens, but you always see the craziest stuff if you are around this long enough.

This is the second attempt at tonights guest, but well worth it.  

Tony Palo from T1 Race Development and Injector Dynamics joins the show.  Tony was on once before with Paul Yaw, and together they are the Co-owners of Injector Dynamics.  Separately they both own their own companies, T1 Race Development and Yaw Power.  

T1 was born out of the import performance market and has gravitated to the GTR performance industry.  Tony has a long history with import performance, and the GTR is really the logical destination.  There is quite a bit to the GTRs and what it takes to make them make over 2000HP. Listen in for some in depth information about Mainline Dynos, dyno testing, application of Injector Dynamics equipment and much more.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Mike has been super busy, Tom had a tree fall on the house he is selling, and Tad is... well...  always Tad.

We really like talking to genuine good people.  There are lots and lots of them in this sport, and tonights guest is no acceptation.

Doug Cook from Motion Raceworks called in to let all the listeners know about the Drag Week meet and greet they are having.  Saturday September 9th to meet the people, see the cars, drink and so on.  All of the proceeds are being donated to Operation Homefront.  Like we said, good people.  With the party details out of the way, we got to hear about Doug's business Motion Raceworks.  Check them out when you need something, we don't think you will be sorry.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Mike gave us some insight into who listens and where.  Australia, Canada, and the UK make up the top 3 after the USA.  Nice.  Maine is slacking terribly, but the car people of Utah are listening!  Seriously, thank you guys.

We really can't say enough about this episode's guest.  Billy Godbold of Comp Cams calls in to give some very technical information about camshafts.  This show is not so much about camshaft recomendations, it's about the actual theory behind the camshaft and ways to apply these theories.  Some very interesting information about jerk, intensity, defection, springs, pushrods, rockers, and the valve train as an overall system.  If you follow our shows for technical details you will really like this one.
