I was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but he definitely came across as a bag of douche in that segment.
Added reply in a thread Lawrance / Dungey Bowers / web which was better? 1/27/2015 9:53 AM
x2. Remember when One Industries already had Dungey wearing their gear, and then JLaw signed on with One as well? Dungey dropped them immediately because he was so pissed. Lawrence knew how to get under everybody's skin, that's for sure.

x2. I'm a massive Stewart fan, still have a bunch of his pics up in my cube. Have a couple hats, a jersey, I even have one of the 6th scale toy RMZ450's with his stickers on it. I saved the VIP pit passes he gave me. That being said, I'm a fan of the ... more »
Added reply in a thread Pretty Frustrated With Tonight's Broadcast... 1/25/2015 5:43 PM
I normally have no complaints about the broadcast, but I can understand why people bitched yesterday after watching the 450 main in particular. There were plenty of instances of off-camera action that the crowd responded to, and I saw several important ... more »

I love a good diss track thrown in for good measure. THUG LIFE!!!! On a serious note, Cooper needs to back it down. Clearly Bowers is not going to win the championship with how well Cooper is riding. Don't throw it away trying to clean each other out. ... more »

It's always there, radio playing music or not. At least on the BMW's, somebody figured it out by physically pulling the radio fuse.

It's actual engine noise being piped in through the speakers, it pretty closely matches engine speed and load. The sound tubes have been used for many years by a bunch of manufacturers. Ford used them on the Focus and Mustang. This is the first time ... more »

I've heard the 3.5 with and without the fake engine noise. If I didn't know any better I would've thought the truck was a V8 from the engine sound. It's really that believable. I thought I was going to hate it, but was pleasantly surprised. I wouldn't ... more »

That was Red Bud in 2008, I believe.

Tyler Evans shared his personal cell phone number on the Jason Ellis show a couple years back. He is an interesting dude for sure.

I at least have that covered.

I think you're referring to the matty box. Those were banned, along with the 12 primary offenders, a long, long time ago. It would give you feedback on how close you were to your dial-in through the tach over the course of a run.

The rear wheelspeed sensor would only be beneficial when the clutch is being slipped anyway.
Added reply in a thread traction control on the start 1/20/2015 4:33 PM
You can do traction control with feedback or completely open loop, and usually they only retard timing. Lots of high horsepower, small tire drag cars use either slew rate control (controls the rate of change of engine speed) or programming in rpm profiles. ... more »

I saw that happen and had no idea who it was at the time. Thanks for the clarification!

Totally agree. Gallagher's examples of Chisolm and Lawrence getting black flagged for similar intentional behavior are enough to understand why they pulled him out of the race. Had Chad been a little smarter and waited until a legitimate racing pass ... more »

I don't think men and women should be competing against each other in full contact sports like football, MMA or boxing, but anything else is fair game. If you're fast enough to qualify, go for it.
Added reply in a thread Modern Four stroke spark 1/14/2015 6:44 AM
The only exception I can think of off the top of my head is the 3rd gen Chrysler Hemi. They run a goofy 16 plug arrangement with 8 plug mounted coils and 8 plug wires, it ends up being wasted spark.
