The Great Podcast Catch Up Post

September 8th – Here is a brand new Cammed & Tubbed episode, back to our regularly scheduled programming.


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Hand in Unlovable Hand

Hoons and Hoonettes, it is my solemn duty to apologize to you for missing nearly a month of podcast posts here on this great site. You see, I have been away from my home for over a month, and did not have time to get caught up on these posts until just today. For that, I am truly sorry. I was first on a vacation with my wife and her family, then off to H&R to drive one of their SEMA cars for European Car Magazine, then it was Car Week, and along with that came a Lemons Rally and I bought an unloved MG Midget. I went to a Willie Nelson concert, and followed that up with an assignment to drive Volvo’s new XC60 in Denver with an immediate flight to Atlanta to cover GridLife South 2017 (and the associated Ludacris concert) with Greggy Kach. Once I returned home, podcasts were on the back burner, but now they’ve been moved to the fore. You can catch up on all of that stuff and more with this playlist of podcasts that I was on. It’s a lot of content being thrown at you at once, but I must humbly request your time to listen to them all, as they’re all worthwhile. Sorry for the podcast dump, but hopefully you have a long road trip coming up where you can catch up on everything. Or perhaps a flight? I listen to a lot of podcasts on planes. It’s soothing. Hit the jump for everything you missed while I was away.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 215 – Return Of The Hack W/ Rob Siegel

Welcome back to the glorious world of Cammed & Tubbed. Cam and I are ecstatic to welcome back hack author and tremendous mechanic (scratch that, reverse it) to our humble little show. For those who don’t know, Rob has written a few books lately that merit discussion. I have read and reviewed two of his books, including “Memoirs of a Hack Mechanic” and “Ran When Parked” right here on Hooniverse, so go check those out. He also has a couple books to help you troubleshoot mechanical ignition and general electrical system problems, which you can find on Amazon. Rob was previously a guest of the show nearly two years ago (my how time flies), and you can go back and listen to that episode to see how far he’s really come. We’ll call that the C&T Bump.

Enjoy the episode, Rob is a great guest.

We also published a Questions episode this week, which we’ll probably stop calling “Question Tuesday” because they rarely go up on Tuesdays anymore. It’s more C&T, which we know you’ll enjoy. Right? RIGHT?

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 213 – Teenage Kizashi Dream

This week Cam and Brad are in the “studio” to record a new episode and do their normal ranty stuff that you may have grown to love (or perhaps hate?). There was a lot to talk about this week, as Cam got some new cats, Brad got to drive the new Infiniti Q50 RedSport 400, Brad has some project updates, a few cars are going to be coming up for sale from Brad’s collection, and he’s shopping for an EV for his wife. He’s also going on a pretty long road trip on Friday. If Cam hasn’t watched Baby Driver by the time he gets back from this road trip, the podcast is over forever.

Chaparral’s High Wing 2E Was A Thing Of Genius

Jim Hall was a badass car designer who thought so far outside the box that the people inside the box couldn’t even see him. His ideas came from left field and nobody expected them to work, but they all, inevitably, did work. His famed white cars are known throughout the world of auto racing enthusiasts as some of the coolest racers ever. Can Am, thankfully, allowed some of his wild ideas to race, and win. The 2E still ranks as among my favorite racing cars ever with a driver-adjustable wing and front aero flap configuration that allowed for downforce in the corners and drag reducing smooth airflow on the straights. Genius. 

I recently got to see this car and all of its brothers on a long road trip. If you’re ever in Odessa Texas, check out the Permian Basin Petroleum Museum. It’s awesome. 

The DFL Show: Episode 61 – DTM Is In Deep Shit

So, DTM is probably dead. 

Stef, Eric, and Pat are all around this week to discuss some news. Eric was at a Lemons race, Stef still has a sketchy race car. NASCAR trucks raced on dirt. NASCAR cars barely raced at all. IMSA raced their GTs at Lime Rock. ELMS raced at the Red Bull Ring. Super GT at Sugo. DTM in Moscow. F1 news, Formula E news, Indycar unveiled their new cars, BMW teased their M8, Mazda quits SpeedSource and will partner with Joest for 2018. VisitFlorida bought a Ligier chassis. 

There were a few listener questions, we hand out our awards, talk about stuff coming up next week, and we’re out. Thanks for listening!


The DFL Show – DTM Is In Deep Shit

And, since we never got around to posting our mini-milestone 60th episode here on Hooniverse, here’s last week’s episode as well. 

Brad, Stef, and Eric talk about a lot of things. Brad got to see a couple of cool racing-related documentaries. Eric went to some vintage drag racing. We discuss safety on the two-year anniversary of Jules Bianchi’s death. Indycar news, some scoops, and lots of awesome racing discussion from races none of us watched.

What’s It Like To Attend A Global Rallycross Race?

Hey, the race is about to start. Wow, look at those fast cars go. Wow, that was a fun race. So cool. 

Yep, it’s a lot like that. It’s really a lot of fun, but coming from the world of endurance racing, it was a ton of action packed into just a few minutes of actual head-to-head battling. It’s a very wild experience that feels like a combination of extreme sports and a Saturday night 3/8ths mile dirt oval. It’s unlike any other form of motorsport I’ve ever seen. It was awesome, and while it was over quickly, a day at the races beats a day at the office any time.

In the interest of full disclosure, Volkswagen flew me to Indianapolis, put me up in a nice room, fed me nice food, and brought me to Andretti Autosport the following day for a tour with the GRC drivers (Tanner Foust & Scott Speed) and Michael Andretti himself.

It Was An Honor To Meet The Prince

Most people who know me would identify me as a “Porsche Guy”. That’s all well and good, I own two of the things, hang out with other Porsche guys, and follow everything the company does in close detail. I’m not, however, just one facet. I have many interests, though to be fair, most of them are automotive in nature. I also love vintage Japanese cars, usually as they relate to the dawn of Japan in motorsport. The mid 1960s were heady days for Japanese auto makers, building faster and more competitive cars with each passing day. Infiniti says they most closely trace their lineage back to the cars first made by Prince Motor Company which was later absorbed into Nissan. The Prince Skyline eventually evolved into the Q50 (G37 before it), and the Prince Gloria was also sold as the Infinit M, which became the Q70. The connection isn’t exactly spurious. 

In any case, Infiniti USA brought the original Prince R380 race car to North American shores for the first time ever this spring. They’ve shown the car publicly at the Amelia Island Concours and the Cincinnati Concours and had the car on display at our lunch stop during the Q50 RedSport 400 drive last week. It was an amazing experience to see the car up close and in person. There are so many great details to look at. In case you’re not aware, this is the car that won the 1966 Japanese Grand Prix, beating my beloved Porsche 906 Carrera 6 in the process. This was among the first purpose-built Japanese racing cars, and of the four R380s built this is believed to be the only one remaining intact.

2018 Infiniti Q50 RedSport 400: The Thinking Man’s Alfa Four Cheese?

It was damn near 100 degrees in Nashville, Tennessee last week when we were there to drive the newly redesigned 2018 Infiniti Q50. More than the heat, however, was the humidity. Some folks in attendance were okay with the humidity, but being that I live in the desert, it was borderline deadly. With a “feels like” temperature of almost 120 degrees, it was too hot for planes to take off from the airport, and my 7PM departure was delayed until 10PM because of that. If only American Airlines had a couple Q50 RedSport 400 engines to strap onto their planes, they’d have had more than enough power to take off, regardless of the heat index. There’s something about that turbocharged 3-liter V6 that makes it feel like it has much more power than the ratings might indicate. Certainly enough to power a flight loaded down with a couple hundred fat asses and all their luggage. 

In the interest of full disclosure, Infiniti flew me to Tennesee, put me up in a nice room, and fed me nice food. When heat completely jacked up flight schedules, their staff went out of their way to accommodate me.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 211 – Emory Porsche Campout

This week on C&T we have a little surprise for you. Brad was recently in attendance at the Emory Porsche Campout in Oregon, and had the opportunity to interview a few Porsche-fanatic folk for an upcoming project he’s working on. John Polnik, previous guest of the show, runs the incomparable “Der Faszination” YouTube channel. Jim Breazeale is a great guy, and proprietor of the European Auto Salvage Yard in the California bay area. Jeff Zwart really needs no introduction, does he? Pikes Peak competitor, vintage car enthusiast, Porsche fanatic, photographer and videographer extraordinaire, to name a few. Gary Emory is the father of Rod Emory, and he has operated “Parts Obsolete” Porsche parts for years. Rod Emory is one of the most significant Porsche hot rodders, metal shapers, and restoration specialists around today. If you don’t know these guys, you really should.

We had a bit of audio skipping on the second episode this week, the Tuesday episode normally reserved for questions. Cam bought some new RX7 seats, Brad talks about the next stages of Project Bradsport. Lower your standards for this one, and you might enjoy it. Thanks for listening!
