138 – Power and Speed – JC Beattie of ATI Performance

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. It’s always nice to have return guests and it’s even better when we can get some of the latest info people should know about.   JC Beattie of ATI Performance joins us tonight for some additional transmission information.  All the power in the world won’t get the job done if the car does not leave and gets down the track.  The engines of today can make so much power they require a trans that is built to live.  Trans and converter tech has come a long way over the past few years and it…

137 – Power and Speed – Last minute show

Mike and Jeff in studio. To borrow from todays racing lingo, this is what we would call a “No Prep” show.  (not that most of them are full of prep to begin with) The show was cancelled because Tom got called away, but Jeff showed up so we turned on the mics.  I have always said they can’t all be winners, but sometimes it’s nice to just shoot the breeze.   PJ from Canada called in (eh) to give some Rocky Mountain race week info.  We had past shows discussing this event and if you are interested this has some…

136 – Power and Speed – Mark Conte of Real Street

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  The performance world changes fast.  Advancements in power production have been occurring year after year.  If you don’t keep on top of things you will get left behind.   Mark Conte joins us tonight to discuss Real Street and the power production possible today.  Anyone in the Supra world certainly knows who Real Street is, but they are much more than Supera performance.  Mark and the guys at Real Street have you covered for just about anything you are working on.  Sound performance principles know no brand limits and you can be sure info…

135 – Power and Speed – Howard Tanner of Redline Motorsports

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  Alrightythen.  Things are getting back to normal and we should have a show you late model GM guys can get into. Like it or not, change is coming.  Mike didn’t like change when the LS popped on the scene or when the Corvette moved to square taillights.  Most of us hate change, but since we can’t stop it, we have to live with it. Howard Tanner joins us tonight to talk about exactly these changes.  The two big changes in the GM power plant area will be smaller displacement (maybe even V6) and no…

134 – Power and Speed – Tom Returns

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  Tom is back! Thank god, it’s not easy to do this without people you work with all the time. Tom traveled to Japan and the Middle East for shows he had to attend.  This should be the last bit of travel for a while so we can get back to the guests and the tech.  Tom has some stories from the road, but he’s pretty beat up.  All said and done it was like being on the road for a solid month. Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.…

133 – Power and Speed –

Mike, Tom, and Fudd in studio.  Tom is still away so good ole Fudd attempts to take his place.   Fudd is still talking about his Dragweek car and is still stuck on a supercharger.  We know they can work, but Mike seems to think it’s not the best idea for this particular type of event. Tonight Glen Hunter calls in with some info Fudd might find useful.  Glen has a beautiful old school Chevy that used to have a supercharger.  After trying to get as much out of as he could he gave up and went over to turbos.…
