Nitto’s William Hong and Tyler Tanaka talk turkey about tires on this week’s show. They answer Adam and Matt’s questions about how to get the most out of your tires on the track or on the street. We also try to find out where to buy some proper “jack stamps” or something. Then we see their amazing custom 2014 Mustang GT, which will be given away at their car enthusiast day.
Adam Carolla and the Professor Sandy Ganz sit back with Vaughn Gittin Jr. Vaughn is a different breed of racer, he is a formula drifter. He is currently driving the Monster Energy Drink/Falken Ford Mustang. Vaughn teaches the boys more about the sport and how it all works. Then we jump back to a the “Derelict Wagon”, a station wagon that has been done with some amazing care yet looks like an un-restored car. Jonathan Ward has been on the show with his ICON 4×4’s and has many other amazing projects in the works!
This weeks episode of CarCast with Adam Carolla and the Professor Sandy Ganz bring you a repeat visitor to CarCast, Amir Rosenbaum of Spectre Performance. Amir tells us the story of his 400mph+ run at the Bonneville Salt Flats. And after some hard labor we get the streamliner pushed into the CarCast parking lot where we take a look at some of the interesting construction details of the car, including the 500 inch twin turbocharged Cadillac V8. We wrap up with a bit about “Plus Sizing” and winter tires.
While Adam is training for the Toyota Long Beach Celebrity Race, Sandy and Matt take your for tour of Bodie Stroud’s new Hot Rod Shop. Matt D’Andria jumps in as we look at Bodie’s projects which range from a 1956 Pickup to a new build he is just beginning that is based on a Boss 429 idea. Then Professor Ganz gets roped into more free labor instead or working on his projects, but at least he gets to explode a tire onto a rim backwoods style. And finally a peek at Mike Rowe’s first car. That’s this week on CarCast. Enjoy!
