Mike and Jeff in studio.

To borrow from todays racing lingo, this is what we would call a "No Prep" show.  (not that most of them are full of prep to begin with)

The show was cancelled because Tom got called away, but Jeff showed up so we turned on the mics.  I have always said they can't all be winners, but sometimes it's nice to just shoot the breeze.  

PJ from Canada called in (eh) to give some Rocky Mountain race week info.  We had past shows discussing this event and if you are interested this has some details about this year's upcoming event.

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.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

It's always nice to have return guests and it's even better when we can get some of the latest info people should know about.  

JC Beattie of ATI Performance joins us tonight for some additional transmission information.  All the power in the world won't get the job done if the car does not leave and gets down the track.  The engines of today can make so much power they require a trans that is built to live.  Trans and converter tech has come a long way over the past few years and it never stops evolving.  ATI is always on top of what it takes to get it done.  Listen in as we discuss everything from the TH400 of today and the transmissions of the near future. 

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.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

The performance world changes fast.  Advancements in power production have been occurring year after year.  If you don't keep on top of things you will get left behind.

Mark Conte joins us tonight to discuss Real Street and the power production possible today.  Anyone in the Supra world certainly knows who Real Street is, but they are much more than Supera performance.  Mark and the guys at Real Street have you covered for just about anything you are working on.  Sound performance principles know no brand limits and you can be sure info from Real Street is the real deal. 

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.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Alrightythen.  Things are getting back to normal and we should have a show you late model GM guys can get into.

Like it or not, change is coming.  Mike didn't like change when the LS popped on the scene or when the Corvette moved to square taillights.  Most of us hate change, but since we can't stop it, we have to live with it.

Howard Tanner joins us tonight to talk about exactly these changes.  The two big changes in the GM power plant area will be smaller displacement (maybe even V6) and no pushrods.  DOHC is the future and the control of the camshafts is valuable in both HP and economy perspectives.  Calibrators like Redline are ready to meet these new challenges head on.  Howard discusses where this is going from what he has seen from thus far from working with ATS Cadillacs and other GM DOHC engines.  Tech is changing and you have to move with it or get out of this game.     

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.
