Show Summary

Adam Carolla and the Professor Sandy Ganz take a field trip down to QMP Racing Engines. The Professors engine is on the Dyno and we find out what went wrong with it. It’s not all bleak as only a bit of work was needed to bring it back to life. Brad Lagman tells us the story. We jump right into the Dyno run and find out how the engine does. The week we are back with the Featured Car segment. Emily Hillebrand brings in something a bit more unusual, a 1960 Rambler American. Enjoy the show!

The Ripper : Radiator Project

March 19, 2010

Sandy and Matt get busy again. We start out with a quick post mortem on the engine and look at the block and a few of the mangled parts. Then we jump in with the air cutoff and chop a larger opening in the radiator support for the new Fluidyne radiator.

Audio for this is also in the Main CarCast ‘Hollywood Hot Rod’ Episode HERE

The Ripper Engine Removal

March 5, 2010

Adam and The Professor get going on yanking the motor out of the Ripper. The Ripper is Sandy’s 1965 Fastback Mustang road race car. We take a peek at the new engine and transmission and here the big plan. We also take some time off for phone calls and a restart of celebrity first cars by fittingly bringing back Christoph Waltz’s First Car to kick off the Oscar’s (He is a shoe in!)
