040 Power and Speed - Dyno 2.0 Postponed, Shooting, Tads Car

Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Tad in studio.

Everyone made it in tonight, and it's nice to have everyone back again.  

Tom was in Florida again for the Toyota engine Manley pistons tests attempt number 2.  For those that did not hear about this, the idea is to test some newer piston designs under very high boost pressure.  Ring seal and piston structure get brought to the forefront when these engines are under extreme pressure.  The engine is on the dyno and going to put through hell to proof these designs.  That is what real world companies do for product R&D.

BUT... there was an issue again.  Electrical gremlins postponed the test, and Hollywood Tom will be on the plane again.  If you see him in Newark airport surrounded by his entourage say hello.

Crunch attended a grudge race involving an old customer of Mike's.  Old describes how long is has been since Mike has seen him and the guys Age.  Maurice, the owner of several grudge race cars over the years is still at it.  God bless the man for doing what he loves at 70 years plus.  He raced a old friend of ours, Tommy Jackson, nephew lined up heads up.  Listen for the details.

Mike and Tom had some firearms shenanigans this weekend.  The guys know it's not the thing for everyone, but it sure is fun.  Mike and Tom discuss the various firearms and binary targets.  

Tad's Subaru has a most definite engine noise in Mike's opinion.  This is going to require a deeper look, and due to the design of the Subaru, not easy to poke around while in the car.  Tad will have to actually work, or actually take it someplace to diagnose the legendary JDM powered shitbox.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

039 - Power and Speed - Deep in the

Mike, Tom and Tad in studio.  Crunch is stuck in traffic and earns a second demerit. 

The show starts of with big news.  Tad's Subaru runs again.  Tad is given the choice of get out of the barrel and admit who fixed it, or prepare for massive abuse.  

Mike is the man, and Tad is out of the barrel.... for now.

The big story this week was the street race in "the woods of South Jersey".  Anthony, one of the participants calls in and discusses his night and the goings on at this spot.  This place, according to Anthony, is the best spot in NJ, and the guys would have to agree.  A few things they can say for sure.  It's Dark, it's secluded, and it's very straight.  It was a very cool spot, and the guys will go back again.  WE DO NOT ENDORSE STREET RACING, but spectating an event that is going to happen anyway..... well it is what it is.

On to Street Outlaws.  Chief was involved in a crash with the Crow.  The guys "somehow" saw the footage of the crash, and as you can tell by the pictures, the car is a total loss.

We are working on shirts, so make sure you alert Hollywood of this failure to follow through.  

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

038 - Power and Speed - SEMA 2015

Mike, Tom and Tad in studio.  Crunch is home sick.  Feel better buddy and see you next week.

Tom (Hollywood) returned from a western swing including SEMA 2015.  It's no secret that Tom works for Manley Performance and that allows him to get some info that we would not normally have.  Tom gives some thoughts on Chevy and the new Camaro, Pro Stock, and a few other things.  We had a listener call who was at the show and did not say hello.  We know celebrities can be a little intimidating, but seriously, if you are someplace we are at say hi.  Do not feel bad about going up to a guest either.  The caller went over and talked to Joe Krivickas from Precision Turbo and Engine and managed to get a nice deal.  Trust me, it's good to say hi.

We are working on shirts, so make sure you alert Hollywood of this failure to follow through.  

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

037 - Power and Speed - Tad's Subaru and Pro Stock Speculation

Mike, Crunch, and Tad in studio.  Tom is attending the SEME show in Las Vegas.  We are not sure when (or if) he will ever come back. (it's pretty nice out there)

The good news is Tad's Subaru has moved!  The bad news is not under it's own power.  Tad's Subaru is a mess, plain and simple.  The car needs lots of attention, and Mike is pretty sure he can get it running in no time flat.  How hard can it be?

NASIOC "Proven Power and Performance"  seems to be under Mike's skin for some reason. (it could be the moron who called JR out on the show)  It's easy to understand how trolls on a forum can have so little understanding that they think somehow a fake dyno number will translate into a great MPH at the track.  The IAG Performance Subaru is no joke, and the dyno numbers have nothing to do with it.  You want "Proven" performance, get your car down the track and post a MPH.

NHRA Pro Stock has gone through some shake ups with the rule changes, and there are lots of tidbits of info out there.  How many will show up for the season opener is a good question.  A loyal listener calls and the discussion gets started.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.
