068 - Power and Speed - Robert Young - Forced Performance

Mike, Tom and Tad all in studio.

One of the basic principals of Power and Speed was to give the chance for people to listen, and even get to talk to, people who make things happen in the performance industry.  That is one of the things that makes it enjoyable to everyone involved.  We hope everyone enjoys this one as much as we did.

The mastermind behind Forced Performance and half the driving force behind Xona Rotor called in to talk all things turbo.  What we realized about 10 minutes in is there is no possible way to cover all things turbo in a regular show.  Robert explained many aspects of turbo size and usage in plain ole easy to understand terms.  We all walked away knowing a lot more than we did.  Some myths and facts were clarified along the way.  Sure, we all know how much faster ball bearing turbos spool and how every performance car needs them... right?  Or do we?  Listen in to what will be the first installment of "all things turbo", and get your questions ready for the next time Robert can call in.  

While sending in questions for our guests we also need to hear from the listeners what night is best.  We did Monday nights cause we thought it would be ok, but Tuesday night seemed to be good.  Let us know.

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.

067 - Power and Speed - Dave Localio Headgames Motorworks

Mike, Tom and Tad in studio.

Tuesday night show, and the live listener count was pretty high.  The guys never expected any of that because of the nature of Podcasts.  It's pretty cool overall, now all the listeners have to do is call.  I wish we had a better social media guy....

Speaking of social media, our very own Tad has started putting the audio on YouTube.  We think this will make it easier for people to find that are not as tech savvy.  A listener and friend actually gave us the idea, and he also so we could actually stream live to that as well.  We are looking into that and will let everyone know.  Tad has also dug up some "information" on the new "hellcat" engine.  We will leave that one right here until next week.  Poor Tad.

Dave Localio of Headgames Motorworks was on a very long time ago, and it's always great to have return guests.  Dave fills us in on some of his latest accomplishments including a VERY serious Viper for the half Mile Drags.  Dave is a lot of fun, and seems to mess with Mike a little.

Mike exited the studio briefly to retrieve an MSD box that must have been in the model T fords.  It has little or no value, but it sure is a cool old artifact.  Check out the picture on Facebook.  

The guys have also got off their collective asses and started a real schedule for guests.  Looks for much more advanced notice of the guests that are in line.  

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.

065 - Power and Speed - JC Beattie of ATI Performance Products

Mike, Tom and Tad in studio after a week off.

We have had guests from all different areas of racing over the course of the guys doing the show.  We love it, and we really enjoy the opportunity to give the listeners a chance to hear from "The Guys" in our world of automotive performance.

With that being said, JC Beattie from ATI Performance Products was on the show a bunch of episodes back and the intention of that show was to talk about all things ATI.  What they do, how they make products better, and why the parts work.  That went right out the window and the entire episode ended up discussing nothing but dampers.  In the end that was a great show and it opened the door for JC to return to discuss other areas of the ATI product offering.  If you wanted to know about converters and how/why they work.  Listen in.  The guys all liked this one, and we will absolutely get JC back for part 3.  Transmissions. 

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.
