The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 150! – Fifteen Miles Per Hour

ct-lead

Cam and I have been doing this dumb podcast for just under three years, which makes me sit back and evaluate what I’m doing with my life on a regular basis… Anyway, existential crisis aside, we have enjoyed producing these episodes for our listeners, and we’re happy to see when new people join the fold. Tell your friends, have your friends tell their friends, whatever, it’s not a pyramid scheme, it’s a multilevel marketing experience. Jason joined us some eighty-ish episodes ago, and we’re happy to have him talk with us every week, too!

This week, our 150th episode actually fell on a Question Tuesday episode, which is kind of fitting isn’t it? We owe our successes with this show to our listeners, so it’s only fair that they contribute to the show as well. Here are some of your questions, and our uneducated and often inadvisable answers to them.


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Fifteen Miles Per Hour

While I usually promo the Friday episode first in these posts, obviously I felt it more appropriate to celebrate the anniversary instead. Today’s brand new C&T features a guest, one of my DFL Show co-hosts was on C&T with us this week, Mr. Patrick Hoffstetter. Lately we’ve been doing show notes prior to the episode, but with as hectic as things have been this week, I didn’t get around to it. It shows. We get a little wild with our topics for a while, not really following any path toward cars. It’s an old school C&T Rants & Raves episode, and Pat’s just along for the ride. In any case, I hope you like the episode, as well as the show. We would appreciate it if you would give us some feedback on our facebook page in either case. Thanks for listening!

The DFL Show: Episode 27 – The Greatest Worst

phpthumb_generated_thumbnailjpg

We have ALL THE HOSTS this week for a host-filled show. We’ve got Duncan, we’ve got Patrick, we’ve got Stef, we’ve got Brad, and we’ve got Eric. It’s not often that we’re all on together, but this one is pretty fun and pretty special. You need to listen, because we have fun.

This week, there’s discussion of all the racing we missed last week for Thanksgiving, as well as all of the goings-on from this week. We have WEC, Formula 1, NASCAR, WRC, and WTCC finale coverage, as well as all of the crazy from Macau. There’s a new manager at McLaren Formula 1, no German GP, a new Porsche, a new Mazda, Some new drivers at Porsche, LMP2 car news, some Daytona entries, Indycar news, WTCC news, Aussie news, and GT1 cars are going to run at Goodwood. As terrible as 2016 was in the normal world, it was pretty great in the racing world, and looks to be getting better (aside from all of the VW group efforts quitting… Dammit Dieselgate!).

Then a quiz, and awards, and whats on next week, then we’re out. See ya next week!

We’re really down to the end of the season now with Formula 1 having just ended and just a couple of between-season series still running, but there is enough to cover here, especially as we took last week off to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family. Besides, the silly season is in full swing, so we’re enjoying a lot of news. Lets get to it!

Read along to see what good stuff happened this weekend. Summer is winding down a bit, and the racing is running to the end of the championships, so we’ll do our best to help keep your finger on the pulse. Just be aware of the fact that this post is filled with spoilers. Giant carbon-fiber, multi-element, DRS-equipped, Gurney-flapped, Spoilers!

The Cars Of Universal Studios Hollywood

15128850_10100503490539829_1523326700945938453_o

Last weekend my wife and I decided to take a trip to Los Angeles, I was there to go to a nerdy Porsche convention, but my wife was primarily there to go to Universal Studios, or more accurately one particular section of the park, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The weather was perfect and we had a good few hours together in the park. While there, I of course had to snap photos of all of the various cars in the park. There were a bunch of them on the studio tour, which you’ll see later, but unfortunately we were stuck on the tram and couldn’t get up close and personal with those cars. I wish I could have. Anyway, read on for more.

ct-149

On this week’s show, Jason, Cam, and Brad are all in their respective studios to record some quality programming. Take a dive into this episode as we discuss Brad’s recent road trip, his new job, and some Harry Potter. Brad also got some wrenching done on the 912E, so discussion there abounds as well. Cam got his E34 wagon back on the road, and both of our non-SoCal residents recently swapped to snow tires. We end the show with discussion of car-related Christmas gifts to avoid for the gift-giving season this year. Go check out Jason’s new M2 video, and Brad’s discussion of the 911 RSR’s aerodynamics.

Our Tuesday episode this week is another Question Tuesday where we answer real questions from real listeners like you. You can ask us questions on our facebook page, via Twitter, or on our instagram. We put out a call for questions every Monday morning, so keep an eye on that as well if you like. I really enjoyed this conversation, we had some open-ended talk at the front end of the show that made us all a bit more relaxed for the rest of it. Enjoy!

The One Year Anniversary Of Bowman And Roy’s Idiotic Adventure

Bradley Brownell November 18, 2016 Speed Reads

morgan_inline_12

It was a year ago today that friend-of-the-‘verse Zach Bowman wrote this tragically fantastic piece that involved him driving cross country with king-of-idiots and friend-of-the-‘verse Alex Roy in his Morgan 3-wheeler of all things. It only took a few sentences to be enamored with the work, as is often the case with Zach’s prose; It will often smash you over the head with its delicate beauty. This piece is transformative in its ability to describe in excruciating detail what it is like to be miserable for nearly two days on the road. A year ago today I made the comment on this post “It’s possible Zach Bowman is the best writer of our generation. It’s also possible Alex Roy is the equivalent of our village idiot. Well done to you both.” and I stand by that statement. If you have not yet read this, here are some excerpts of Bowman’s work to convince you to click on through and read the whole thing.

Zach Bowman, possibly the best writer of our generation:

“It’s dangerous, trusting a shitty box store jack with my life; maybe the Morgan will fall on my face and get this over with. He died as he lived, like a f**king idiot.”

Check the oil. Add a little. Tighten the center locks. Check air pressures. Check wheel bearings. That last one throws a warning. The passenger side tire is wearing quicker than its twin, and a good shake of the wheel shows slop. We agree to keep pushing and keep an eye on it. We’ll know if it gets worse. So will our next of kin.”

“Could we pull a few hours from the time? I think so, but I’ll never know. The next time I climb into a wooden box will be the day they put me in the goddamned ground.”

Yeah, you owe it to yourself to read this. Go do it.

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 147 – Snow Tires & Coilovers

147

Cam, Tub, and Jason are all back on the show again this week, and the discussion flows as though we’ve been doing this for 147 episodes. Maybe. In our Friday episode, we’ve got some project car updates that you’ll probably enjoy with Brad getting his Boxster back on the road just in time for it to snow, and then doing a bunch of work on the 912E. Cam got some work done on his E34, but had some issues. Brad popped his snow tires on and is going on a nerdy roadtrip this weekend. Then we discuss the new Honda Civic Si.


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – Snow Tires & Coilovers

In our Tuesday episode from last week we answer some of our excellent listener questions. We have been blown away by the quantity and quality of our listener questions, so thank you for continuing to send those in. We appreciate each of our listeners, but the ones that send in questions are our favorites. Thanks for listening.

This week it’s Pat, Stef, and Eric sitting around talking about racing. There was a very wet F1 race in Brazil, NASCAR action, Super GT, Moto GP, Formula E, Trans Am, and NHRA to discuss. Then comes the news, with tons of silly season updates, some interesting stuff going on at Daytona right now, A new Panoz, some IndyCar stuff, and a quick debrief on how short-track races treat media.

There aren’t any listener questions this week, and everything ran long, so we skipped the quiz. We did announce a winner of our Hunziker Design Shoes giveaway, and we have a new theme song to play for you! Our traditional Awards of the Week are given away as well. We briefly discuss what’s coming up next weekend (WEC FINALE!!!!!!), and say our goodbyes. Thanks for listening!

The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 145 – SEMAbominations

ct-145

Here’s a new episode of C&T with Jason, Cam, and Brad all back for the first time in weeks! We recorded on election day, so we reflect a bit on that, then jump into the real deal important car stuff. Jason reports from SEMA where he drove the new Hyundai Elantra Sport, Brad reports on the Audi S3 he drove a few weeks ago, Cam is buying a house with a garage, and got some new suspension bits for his BMW Wagon. All in all, it’s a pretty good episode, so we hope you enjoy it!


The Cammed and Tubbed Podcast – SEMAbominations

In the second of this week’s two ‘sodes, Brad discusses the newly sharkafied Porsche Cayman GT4 with Alex Ross of Sharkwerks. Alex is a super good guy, and the cars Sharkwerks turns out are fantastic. I enjoyed the discussion, and then ended with a bit of on-board audio so you can hear the newly tweaked exhaust note. Thanks for listening!
