077 - Power and Speed - Wild Bill Devine - Bullseye Power Turbos

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.

Job Spetter
Ken Duttwieler
Hurley Blakeney
Racin' Jason
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.    

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.

075 - Power and Speed - Keith Powell of That Racing Channel

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

Fireman Jeff stopped by the Power and Speed studio this week to drop off, of all things, heads for Mike to work on.  Just when we though Mike was above anything that would get oil on his hands he proves us wrong.

Tonights guest is Keith Powell of That Racing Channel.  We really don't think he needs to much introduction here, but just in case you have been living under an internet rock, That Racing Channel has some of the best produced "car guy" videos out there. This really is an excellent story detailing the beginnings of the venture.  These guys knew cars and just took it all from there.  In case you did not know it, they themselves have a few rather interesting rides that are EXTREMELY fast.  Good times, and we hope to have Keith back soon, and we hope Javier can make it next time.

One big point to note.  The have a pretty cool app for the iPhone, and if you don't have it (or an iPhone) you should.  It gives very nice stats of the acceleration rate of your car.  We are fairly sure Mike will have a few stories since he has been using it non stop in his car since the show.  He will have one of three things come next Monday.

1) Results of how slow it really is
2) A broken car
3) Quite a few state issued critiques of his driving habits. 

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.

074 - Power and Speed - Back from VaCa - Sponsor

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

 

Seems like forever, but the guys are back.  (honestly it was all Tom's fault)

Tom again was traveling to far away lands meeting with his people.  Lots going on overseas in the Dubai and Emirates region.  There will be more on that as soon as the guys can talk about it.

Our listener and Friend Jeff Chang took the plunge and got himself a McLaren 650.  No doubt this has caused some serious envy in Mike's world.  He has been talking about a McLaren forever, and Jeff is living the dream.  Tom will be visiting him in the near future and will give it a nice review when he comes back.  Congrats Jeff and thanks for making Mike even a little more miserable. 

Busted Knuckle Garage reached out to the show, and this is nice news on several fronts.  The have offered to supply product for a Power and Speed give away.  They have a cool product called the magnetic finger.  Warren reached out to the show and gave a nice little bit of history on this venture.  You should check the website out, and pick up some things for the local hangout/mancave.  More on this next week.

Tom does have some good guests lined up, and the hot vacation weather is almost behind us... that will really help with the scheduling.   

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.
