029 – Power and Speed – Warren Johnson Carbs – Thanks For Callin’

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio.  Everyone is back

Mike found out that two strokes still live and breathe at Yamaha.  Yep, you can still buy a YZ250 2 stroke brand new in 2016.  Mike seems like he is ready for a new toy, and my thought is he will end up in traction with a feeding tube.

Crunch attended a car show out of state.  Lots of retro cars with modern running gear and power plants.  This is a move that has been taking place for a while, much like Tom’s Camaro.

Tad talks about the Somerville NJ car show every Saturday night, and it really runs the range of cars.  Telsa has it’s own little little section, and I am with Mike on this one, not ready for prime time.

Tom got himself a new ride.  2016 Dodge Durango black top series.  Very sharp looking truck right outta the box.  It has sissy brakes, but he says he is gonna fix that.  

Safety in racing is discussed with Alan who would really prefer to save the world one rule at a time.  It’s very hard to be proactive in the safety department.  You can’t predict what is going to happen, and hindsight is 20/20.  Thanks for callin’

Pro Stock EFI comes up again, and Alan returns to the phone.  OK, so Mike kinda shows his hostility, and is pretty hard on Alan.  I see both points, but Holley is not getting rich of this one no matter what.  The main winner here was NHRA.  Thanks for Callin’

027 – Power And Speed – NHRA 2016 Pro Stock Rules

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad all back in studio.

It seems Greys Anatomy is mentioned quite often.  Please feel free to call Mike out on this.  

The NHRA published information on the already discussed 2016 Pro Stock Rules package.  The Electronic Injection section is pretty well defined, and the guys seem to think overall it was a good choice of nailing things down as they did.  Engine builders always look for areas of exploit, and the people that write rules “try” to account for those areas.  It’s never easy, but you have to start somewhere.

Street Outlaws armageddon was run, and Chief came out on top.  Mike and Tad are still particularly impressed that it is a real Pontiac foundation engine.  Hats off Chief and congrats.

Giveaways are being formulated, and it’s fairly clear this will be for live listeners only.  I can tell you behind the scenes there are some pretty good ideas on exactly how to do this.

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.

026 – Power and Speed – Crunch gets called out

Mike, Crunch and Tad in studio.  Tom is out today with some family things he had to do.

Crunch went to MIR this weekend for a 12 hour day of Class, Grudge, Shootout, and seafood.  The event was put on by Joe Gray and Larry T for putting on a great event.  Do you have an event you are trying to promote?  Let us know.  Does not matter where in the country you are, and we will help drive whoever we can there.  

Tad brings up Mr Bean Rowan Atkinson gets the award for the highest collision repair cost.  930’000 UK Pounds, or 1.4 mil US dollars.  The amazing part, the car sold after being wrecked to that extent, it was sold 12.2 mil US dollars.  (BTW, Mike hit that math right on the head on the fly… WTF)

This was a first, and bound to happen.  Crunch get a hostile caller looking to call him out for a race.  Now while this might not be everyone’s idea of good radio, but this is how it really happens.  It’s gonna be tough to set something up on here, but this is how it goes.  Hats off to both guys for not getting to heated during this segment.

Blast from the not so distant past.  Alan, AKA Fudd, Fuddrick, The Engineer, calls in.  He turned out to be a good caller, and Tom missed it.

Live next week Monday night 7:00PM EST, live call in 908 751 0211.  Like us on Facebook (Power and Speed Podcast) or follow us on Twitter (PowerSpeedPod)
