116 – Power and Speed – Billy Godbold of Comp Cams

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Mike gave us some insight into who listens and where.  Australia, Canada, and the UK make up the top 3 after the USA.  Nice.  Maine is slacking terribly, but the car people of Utah are listening!  Seriously, thank you guys.

We really can’t say enough about this episode’s guest.  Billy Godbold of Comp Cams calls in to give some very technical information about camshafts.  This show is not so much about camshaft recomendations, it’s about the actual theory behind the camshaft and ways to apply these theories.  Some very interesting information about jerk, intensity, defection, springs, pushrods, rockers, and the valve train as an overall system.  If you follow our shows for technical details you will really like this one.

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.

115 – Power And Speed – Dave Vassar Nitrous Outlet

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

 

Oh boy, here we go again.  Fans will remember the show after Trump won the election Mike happened to play a Kid Rock song for the show open.  There is no way we could have known this guy is going to run for office in Michigan, and in some early polling he’s actually up.  Well we know this guy certainly isn’t gonna be able to say he’s a nice wholesome gentleman…crazy times

The Team 260 guys (you have to say Two Six Oh or they get touchy) have been trying to put on a race called “Neglection” for some time now, and they keep getting screwed up by the weather.  It looks like it’s finally going to happen!  Seriously, these are good guys, and they know how to treat people at an event.  The event occurs at Lyons Raceway park on the 29th of July.  If you are reasonably close, head there.  We are sure you won’t be disappointed.

Tonights guest is Dave Vassar of Nitrous Outlet.  Dave shares his story of starting out in parts retail industry and ended up landing squarely in the nitrous kit and component manufacturing area.  Dave is responsible for some of the most well thought out nitrous kits on the market.  Puck systems, Stinger systems, and the new Interspooler system are all straight out of their in house R&D center.  Dave gets into some of the details of the various kits and there evolution through testing.  Lots of good stuff from Dave, and we would be happy to have him back anytime.

014 – Power And Speed – Richard Guido and Billy Armstrong Rocky Mountain Race Week

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Well this is a first for us.

We have had guests from manufacturers, guests from EFI training, and guests that are racers.  We have never had a racer get to call in during a race week event.  To make this twice as nice, we have not one racer, but two!

Richard Guido and Billy Armstrong both call in while competing in Rocky Mountain Race Week.  

We had Richard on few shows back to get their Drag Week stories.  For those that don’t remember his show, he is a crazy Canadian who runs an honest to god Pontiac 6 speed car.  Richard has made quite a few friends on his Drag Week endeavors and he is with one of them tonight.  Billy Armstrong is a fellow racer and it seems they are enjoying the high altitude air, along with a libation or two,  after a day of traveling.  Listen to these guys and you will get an idea what this whole Rocky Mountain Race Week can throw at you.  There are some very unique challenges here and be sure to pay attention to the altitude discussion.

Great guys and we can’t wait to meet them.

113 – Power and Speed -Greg Banish of Calibrated Success

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

 

Tom takes an Uber, Mike has a plan, and together they failed. 

With that out of the way, the shows as of late are really full of good info from good people.  Shane T, Paul Yaw, Ben Strader and now…  

Greg Banish.

Greg has a very different perspective from most calibrators (tuners).  Greg has worked with GM, Ford, Saleen, Lotus, and Roush.  He has seen the inside of how the sausage is made for what we drive, or lust after, every day.  

Think about that.  

Guys like Greg are the reason what we drive does in fact have the mannerisms we expect a factory car.  Greg explained more than a few items from the OEM perspective and tied them in from a performance standpoint.  The direct injection side was particularly interesting to us.

Greg has also authored books relating to the performance calibration field as well as video productions on the same subjects.  Check for the books on Amazon, I know Mike bought some already.

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.
