015 – Power and Speed – Memorial Day

Mike, Crunch, Tom and Tad in studio tonight.

Happy Memorial day.  Not enough can be said about our Veterans.  Does not matter if it is Memorial day or not, be nice to a Veteran.  They are the only reason you are free to live your life like you do.  From all of us, a heartfelt thank you!

Mike has issues with weight and circle track racing is slowly sucking him in.  He will slowly implode, just watch and see.  Mike saw a beautiful 62 Chevy Nova and after talking to the guy a few minutes they talk about the single turbo that is under the hood and who built it.

Tad has food issues, and as sure as Mike is going to implode Tad is going to explode. Tad brought up the subject of self learning EFI.  A tuners worst nightmare is becoming a reality.  I am sure the guys will research this and have more on it next week.

Crunch caught some racing this weekend, and he alerts us our guests from a few weeks back “Gordo” and “Krazy Horse” both had races.  Some good, some bad, some a little controversial.

Tom basically did nothing all weekend, and STILL did not watch “Winning, the racing life of Paul Newman”.  Even though he didn’t you should.  Great movie, amazing story.  Tom is still sporting the multi cool minivan, and the Subaru has a return date set.  (Mike is gonna wup ya Tom)

014 – Power and Speed – Ryan Krachun in Studio

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio today with guest Ryan Krachun.

Tom recounts he latest trip, and he tells us he spent some time at a “cup” shop.  Not much to be gained there, it’s not like they put signs on stuff that says “cool top secret stuff here”.  He also stopped in to see master engine builder Gene Fulton.

Ryan Krachun is in studio this week.  Ryan, now 16, has been racing forms of circle track since he was 7 years old.  He is the youngest person to ever be given the permission to race in “modified” circle track racing by the state police (yes NJ Sucks).  After only two starts in DIRT small block modified racing, he scored his first win.  The guys get to know Ryan, and at the end of the interview, the fabled “John John” calls in to give his fellow competitor props on a job well done.

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


013 – Power and Speed – Salt, Tires, and Tad’s new role

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad are in studio.

Tom is leaving again, Tad is still trying to figure out how to put headphones on, Crunch’s word list is out, and Mike has issue with salt?

There is an Alan swingset update, and it looks as if it is almost complete, but that does come with news of his departure.  Tad will be in for Alan for the foreseeable future.

The very first question from a listener is addressed.  Tires and a little bit of what guys are using now.  Radial vs Bias and  tire brands are discussed.  Clearly they are not tire experts, but try to give a least an overview of what they know.

012 Power and Speed – Tim Christ from Coast Chassis

Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Fudd stand in Tad are in studio.

Mike still is dreading the return to the dirt tracks.  With his little brother starting to race again, the frustration begins.

The PDRA changed the rules on our resident racing celebrity, and the guys discuss the balance of a class with mixed motor rules.  It a tough subject, but something worth thinking about.

Tim Christ, owner of Coast Chassis from Edgewater Florida calls in to discuss what chassis work today has evolved into.  Small tire and pro mod class cars are a large part his business.  X275 type chassis costs are discussed, and in the end there is no real firm number on cost.

Back next week on mixlr 8:00 PM EST on Monday night, and as always live call in number 908 751 0211.
