Mike, Tom and Tad in studio. I am not sure what goes on at the Power and Speed compound over the week, but some strange stuff goes on with the wildlife….. Tom tries to drag Mike into a camshaft discussion and I think what we learned is the guys would really like a good camshaft guest to come on.  It’s tough to ask an engine builder about cams because they can be like Mike, very focused on a particular “type” of motor.  The guys floated a few names, and I am sure they will get someone.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Fireman Jeff in studio. Thank god things are back to normal, well as normal as they get anyway.  It’s an unfortunate fact of life the guys have to work, and have things come up.  Tom and Mike both had travel plans.  Tom headed down south the see customers, Mike went on a 36 hour trip to Vegas for the NAB show.  The guys should be good for a while here moving forward.
