019 - Power and Speed - Corvettes socks, Charlie Buck Break-in, Getting Kids into racing

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio.  Phones apparently were not working last week, but they are fixed for this week.

GM has given Mike the news his Corvette is going to be fixed.  The repair of the warranty is authorized, but you can tell at some point this is going to put Mike over the edge.

Tad is still trying to sign on to Yellow Bullet to get a self learning injection guy to call in, but it seems he has issues with getting signed up.  Now this could very well be Tad and not Yellow Bullets fault. 

Mini-Van Tom brings up the Charlie Buck racing engines break-in and robbery.  Reports have it as high 1.3 million in engines and related parts stolen.  That is a substantial loss, and we all hope they really find the people behind it.  

Crunch did a little car shopping this weekend.  Looked at a ZL1 that is now over 70K.  He's 100% right, for 70K.. why not buy a Corvette?

Live next week at 7:00PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211 live callers second half of the show.

018 - Power and Speed - Loss of a friend

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio for a sad podcast.

We all have people we have lost, and it's never easy.  Mr John Cornell, a dear friend of Mike and his family passed away suddenly at a local race track doing what he loved, watching his son race.  It's always a hard loss when it's one of the good guys, and it Mr Cornell was one of the best. 

He will be missed, and we all wish his family the best at this very difficult time.

017 - Power and Speed - Formula Drift, Subaru Event, Crunch and DSR

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Thaddeus in studio tonight.

Car guys are always car guys, doing their thing.  The guys like them all, but it does not mean they do not have opinions on certain types of "racing".  Formula Drift got on Mike's radar this weekend, and he's not impressed.  In 99% of racing spinning the tire is not a good thing, but they do pack a crowd.  Prepare for some hate mail on this one.

Tom attended the Subaru car show, without his Subaru.  The guys were hoping he drove his multi-cool soccer mom mini van, but no such luck.  Some of the questions he was asked at the show are discussed.  We are for sure at the age of misinformation.

Thaddeus poked into the self learning injection mentioned the other week.  Mike is not thinking it's there yet, and the guys think it can be done.  If anyone has one, they would like to hear about it.

Crunch took a thorough beating on yellowbullet.com, and really does not care.  He said all those same guys have been messing with him for a long time, and it just does not matter to him.  Sorry to disappoint his "fan base".  He does bring up a set of questions about what defines a backhalf VS a tube chassis car.  This was leading somewhere, and I  could be wrong but I think he was calling out DSR!

Live again Monday night at around 7:30 PM EST on mixlr.com.  Call in and be part of the show.  908 751 0211

016 - Power and Speed - Cool Toys and Newman Doc

Mike, Crunch, Tom in studio.  Tad is here, but in the penalty box for not doing his homework.

Mike has been trying to get the guys to watch "Winning: The racing life of Paul Newman" from Adam Carrola for some time now.  So far Tom is the only one who actually watched it.  Tad has been relegated to the "green room" with popcorn and TV.  He will return after he finishes his assignment.  It's a great movie, and every car guy should watch it.  Much more to Paul Newman than you can imagine.

Crunch was scheduled to run a race for cash, and he cancelled for his own reasons.  He has taken quite a bit of heat on Smallblockposse.com, but he is not afraid to tell his side on mic.  He lost a deposit, but won another bet.

Mike again has corvette issues.  On the hook again and back to the dealer.  He's not happy and explains the motor failure along with the failure of the clutch system.

Toys:  Everyone had them, and every car guy had something that they remember that at the time life was never better.  The passion that car guys have all things mechanical starts at an early age.

A few callers, Crunch get to talk to his opponent after the deposit forfeit.  A caller checks in from Michigan, Fireman Jeff calls in, and Crunch's racing partner Hassan gives the fairest man in drag racing his props.

Live again Monday night at around 7:30 PM EST on mixlr.com.  Call in and be part of the show.  908 751 0211
