Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio
We are back after some very sketchy weeks of scheduling problems and personal issues. Last week show 76 with Mike's friend John and his son Matt is a little messed up. Turns out a seldom used RE20 Mic bit the dust. Mike IS working on it and he can save it when he gets a few spare minute. Trust us on this, when we tell you Mike is busy... you have no idea.
Tom was unable to do last weeks show due to a last minute emergency, but two weeks ago he was at the Sand Sport show. For us here in the Northeast it's a little hard to understand, but the sand guys take things very seriously. We are talking about essentially dune buggy type vehicles with insane (1500+) HP levels and equally insane price tags (300K+). This is crazy stuff, and most of us knew nothing about it. We also got a little info about "The Chang's" McLaren 650s. This sounds like a hell of a ride.
Tonights guest is "wild" Bill Devine. Bill has been around forced induction forever. If we look back to the guys who were the "computer age" fast turbo guys, Bill was right there. Here are some names that will ring a bell.
and the list goes on.
Yes Yes Yes we know, there were many others before them, but this is the time when turbos met computers. That opened the floodgates and here we are today. Bill went from Ford performance to STS (rearmount) Turbos to Bullseye Power Turbos. They have some very interesting turbo wheel designs going and that alone is worth the listen. Very good history here and Bill is a great guest. They do everything from diesel to all out Drag so check out Bullseye next time you need a new hair dryer or two.
