104 – Power and Speed – Adam Hodson and Nick Taylor of Team 260

Mike, Tom, and Tad and Headgames Dave in studio.

Dave from Headgames actually lives pretty close to the studio, so it’s nice when he can drop by.  Dave and Mike go at it a little bit about heads, but don’t let that fool you.  He was there to pick up Mikes heads, and trust us, Mike is very sure about everything he does when it comes to getting work done.

Drag Week guys continue, but this week it’s something a little different.  Adam Hodson and Nick Taylor of Team 260 called in to give more than just Drag Week info.  These guys live racing, there is no other way to say it.  Not only are they Drag Weekers, they are now race promoters.  These guys got lots going on, and you should listen in and follow the Facebook page to get all the latest even details.  We might even head out to the Neglection race.  All of Team 260 (Two Six Oh) have been assume to talk to and we look forward to meeting all of them.

103 – Power and Speed – Jason Harding of Katech – Alex Corella Drag Week

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Drag week continues to monopolize the podcast.  There are so many things to discuss, and Mike is researching everything 24/7.  When questions come up our goto guy is Jason Harding from Katech motorsports.  This time, it’s an odd issue about what is going on the with the EPA and tuners?  Jason knows all about the ins and outs of EPA approval and practices.  We will have more about this in future shows, but it is scary stuff for the tuners and street guys.  Seriously, if we go to Jason for answers you should too.  Doesn’t get better than Katech.

Continuing with out Drag Week participant schedule Alex Corella calls in to share his story.  His 93 Fox body actually uses a Ford engine.  With all of the LS swapping going on it’s nice to hear some guys stay true to the brand.  Alex runs in the Super Street class and has some good stuff.  If you listen to guys like Alex and our other guests and don’t want to do this, We don’t even know what to say.

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.

102 – Power and Speed – UAE Custom Show – DragWeeker Matt Blasco

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

It seems Tad is much more of a dork than previously expected.  Tad’s car is delayed, in part because good ole Tad seems to be quietly trying to a “build thread” on some Subaru forums and won’t proceed without… wait for it… pictures.  I can’t even imagine why, but this whole thing is gonna haunt em for a while.

Tom was away last week at the UAE Custom show, and we don’t think everyone realizes  this area of the world is going car crazy.  The Custom Show is getting bigger and bigger every year.  Tom is involved with an engine building and tuning challenge that is a big part of the show.  We realize not everyone can get there, but if you are planning a trip it would really be a cool place to go.

The DragWeeker theme continues this week with Matt Blasco.  Matt is old school Chrysler guy, but with some very interesting twists.  Matt is a IT guy by trade and he put his skills to good use.  His 1973 Dart actually runs “CAN bus” for the vehicle functions.  He runs a Mega Squirt system, and uses it functions to the fullest. (listen to the fuel pump system) Matt knows quite a few guys in this industry that took interest in his car, and he is going to put us in touch with some DragWeek loyal vendors.  Matt’s a great guy, and we all look forward to meeting him in person.    

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.

101 – Power and Speed – Dave Localio – DragWeeker Richard Guido

Mike, Tom, Tad, and special guest Dave Localio of HeadGames in studio.

We have only had the chance to have a guest in studio a few times, and it’s always easier than talking on the phone.  Dave Localio is responsible for some very serious boosted cars with insane boost levels.  The prep of the factory head is crucial at these boost levels.  The TX2K event that just concluded featured one is his customers cars.  Don Summerton calls in to recap this event, and you should listen to the boost levels on these 2JZ cars.  Dave lives closer than I realized and he can stop by from time to time and we would love to have him back.

We decided we are going to stay with the who DragWeek topic.  These guys are the reason this event is what it is today.  DragWeeker Richard Guido is a 4 time competitor.  Richard and his father (75 god bless em) make the trip in a 1965 GTO 517 F1C Procharger with a STICK!  This is a real honest to god Pontiac and a real honest to god synchronized stock T56 trans.  Richard has a great outlook on the whole event, and you can tell from listening to him he loves this stuff.  Listen in, another great advertising for DragWeek.
