093- Power and Speed – Octopus – Rod Bolts – Callers

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Tom is has returned from Japan.

Finally, Tom returns.  He was in Japan for a trade show.  It sounds like it was actually pretty interesting as long as you like octopus.  He’s a sick man, what can we say.

Lots of interviews
Rod Bolts and FI

The plan was to discuss Drag Week, and that was a complete swing and a miss.  We need to get Tim from Coast and Howard from Redline in the near future to go over the loose ends.  We will save that for another show.

Somehow the topic of rod bolts and engine building gets started.  Rod bots are by far the most stressed, as well as important, bolt in any engine assembly.  There has been lots of discussion of torque, stretch, angle, and a variety of combinations.  Mike is a straight up “know what you are working with, use your torque wrench guy”.  Tom sounds a little more of a stretch guy, and they both agree angle is a little strange overall.  Lubes, torque wrenches, and techniques are discussed.  It’s not super high-level stuff, but it is stuff you need to know to be successful at preventing an oil pan failure.

Next Injector Dynamics Paul Yaw will be on.  This has been a much-anticipated guest, and we hope all you guys get questions together and send them on Facebook…. or better yet CALL.  The guys will pick you up.

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.
