148 – Power and Speed – Vince Tiaga – Powertrain Lead for the Corvette Racing Project

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Dave Localio in studio

OK, we can all thank Dave Localio for getting us connected with tonight’s guest.  We have talked to a ton of people in serious forms of racing, but this takes serious to a new level.

We realize we have listeners from all different areas of motorsports but this is one any performance minded person should be interested in.

Vince Tiaga, the lead powertrain engineer from GM’s Corvette Racing project, joins the show calling in from France.  Why France?  Because Corvette Racing just completed pre qualifying for the 24 Hour of Lemans race to be held June 16-17.  

Yes, that Corvette Racing.

Vince explains his path to the GM Corvette Racing Project, and some of what goes into running these types of events.  We talk about everything from powertrain to the actual events themselves.  This one is a must listen. 

Live again next week Tuesday 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.

146 – Power and Speed – Chris Delgado of Prospeed Autosport

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio

One of the best parts of doing this show is talking to people who have slid into this industry from less than obvious avenues.  Chris Delgado is one of those guys.  

Chris Delgado of Prospeed Autosports started tuning cars in 2000 and took a interesting route to get there.  Chris, a fan of hot pockets, sought out work in areas that interested him.  Translation, Chris is a motivated guy who learns how to do what he needs to do.  People that do this are fascinating because they are not confined to conventional thinking when looking at a new challenge.  

Chris is into a lot of interesting areas, and we talked about everything from “White Rice” to GM DI add port fuel injection systems.  Give this one a listen to find out more.

Live again next week Tuesday 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.

147- Power and Speed – Dumpster Fire

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio

Tom said it best, dumpster fire.

So, we have no internet, no sound machine, the mixing board decided to on vacation, and we ended up streaming the show for the fans live with my cell phone.

Check out how the Power and Speed team overcomes adversity.
