Rei would. there are so many ferraris. I would love to have but you can sort of put this to eighty supercar manufacturer. They people accept standards from them that they would never ever ever except from more volume manufacturers and maybe that makes them a little bit more nisha a little bit more desirable but kind of like i was alluding to earlier with the maserati.

"Am. One is top dog. Biggest fastest cars out there and then also willow springs like it's called the fastest track in the West and I'm not a I don't even like willow springs. I'm not very good on that. Track much prefer somewhere. Like we'RE GONNA SAKE I get a lot more Seat time at Laguna Seca but So next thing you know. It's just the weekend of the race. I'm right in the middle of production and I you know I just kind of head out on a Friday morning and there's this crazy beast of a seven are full race prep corvette and and I don't even know how it shifts or anything and they're like it's sequential ever use us to quench gearshift and I'm like no. I've never done that. I was at work trial by fire. Yeah like how do I need to push the collection like well? If you want you can do it. You don't have to but you could like okay. I don't even know if I fit in the car. And next thing you know it's smash and then Was also a forty lap race and I I usually do ten lap races. You know I'm in car for like twenty minutes during vintage race forty lap race and a two and a half mile course. I'm like jeeze being a car for a while here A long story short Somehow got into it figured it out. I got my groove. A little stall. It started following some fast guys and made a pass or two and ended up On the podium with a third place finish saw pretty everyone was. I don't think anyone was more surprised than I was. Pretty Damn surprise. That's the way you need to do it all the time. Just show up and drive over. Think things and maybe that's been the problem right you over. Think things it's like oh just show up and race and maybe that's maybe that's the ticket there. Yeah I duNno I well no I know I always show up and out that well so well. Here's here's a question for you because you do a lot of energy racing and I mean when you've injuries I mean it's proper proper vintage race cars. I mean you know jumping into this corvette modern day. Just Amazing Road Racing. Carmen. What's the biggest difference is? Because I mean you've driven some cars. Some vintage cars that were at the top of their game. You know thirty forty years ago. I mean what's the difference in jumping into this corvette? Now say as you know what I mean you know Neumann's Porsche from seventy that you just bought The the the the the new cars and I mean this corvette was you know full tube frame beast just a beast of a car I is. Is You know about as fast as those kind of cars with bodies on them. Get have eight hundred fifty horsepower. But it was still dialed in it. It breaks worked the steering work. The suspension was tuned for the track. You know when I would go out. Come off that after doing qualifying or warm up or practice or whatever some tech would plug is computer and and start my messing around with this purchase on the the struts for the springs or add a little more this or put a little more you know dial in a little more sway bar or something like that and so the end result was even though the car was a crazy lab insane beast. It felt kind of like a car you know. Felt like Kinda more drivable and its own. Sort of eight hundred fifty horsepower. Waie than the than than my vintage cars which really feel like old cars like they. Don't the brakes aren't always there? The steerings tough you know as far as the suspension goes like who knows the best as we can do it. But it's it's never really like dial. Dan Arrow no Arrow that the vet had a ton of down for. You know you carry tons of speed into the Terni big sweeping turn on going one hundred sixty miles an hour and it it would stay put you know you know the stuff I drive has wairoa anything so in a weird way. The crazy beastly. That was easier it makes sense. I mean I come from racing trophy trucks and I've said we can put anybody in a trophy truck. No matter what you're driving skill level is and you can still be pretty fast. Because they're so forgiving and they're so dialed in you know whereas you go to a vintage off road truck from say twenty thirty years ago. You really had to be a driver to drive one of those because you make one little mistake and it's your up on your lid completely. Get that like these. New Cars have got so fast that you can take a bad driver and make them good. If that makes any sense I think I think so I mean we had a In in in the Trans. Am Two or three. There was a Lamborghini Gardo Tra foil or whatever and it's like all wheel drive. I think it had some kind of tracking control. You know paddle shift you know. I think that I think. Like blip the throttle you know when you're downshifted and it was like kind of like driving just a really cool supercar erase and the guy still going fast and everything but the the vintage cars. You're you're you're sweating. You're working you're working and you know. I was working in this corvette but not as hard as I work in in the in the vintage cars. Although I'll say this about the vet this speed is a lot faster or so stuff's happening a lot faster. You know even even though the brakes worked. Better stuff's coming at you a lot faster and Also with eight hundred and fifty horsepower. And it's right there like you just tap the throttle that it's it's it's it's on. It's pretty easy to bring that rear end around like you just took a little while to get used to it but I liked it and I I I would. I would be happy to drive. More modern cars were less less challenge. Yeah going back to the vintage cars. I WanNa Talk Real Quick. About your collection match showed me the collection over there and you know and I love it. You know and one thing I really love about it is. I've been to a lot of car. Collections here's is so different than everybody else's and see vintage Nissan race cars and datsuns. And you've got you know Lamborghini mirrors and I mean what what's basis I mean when you look at cars. I mean what is it? That Adam Carlito's Oh. Wow that's something I want to target because your collection is different than anything I've ever seen before what thanks I you know I just have stuff I like and if I like wine and And DOTSON ANYTHING IN RACE TRIM. I- like a lot You know something that I want that I don't have that. Have always kinda wanted was a an one pro car for instance.

"eight hundred fifty horsepower" Discussed on The Down and Dirty Show
"Here to the down and dirty radio show powered by polaris a razor and yeah it is it is definitely been how big wild week in the world of motor sports obviously score international doing battle south of the border and man. was that a crazy crazy event you know it was one those were we go back to the pill. Draw will jump into this thing with Ryan are Sierra and more into the offroad edition podcast this week but you know we go back to that. the pill draw format you know this is what the grew up with right when my dad race and when I first started racing where it's just a random draw for star positions you know put all the names in a hat pallone out and boom. That's where you start and there's some fun in that because you get some of the best driver starting in the back you know. Sometimes you know. They got to work their way through traffic. It does make an interesting concept and race gives everybody shot at start up front. Thing is is we graduated pass that with qualifying and now it's kind of no going back and for some reason score decided that they wanted to well. I think there's more to it. It's probably not that they want to do but just permitting and stuff they couldn't get the qualifying course and costs and everything else involved in you know I understand things happen right so you know and so they went back to this and caused some problems because you had some of the best drivers starting towards the back in the middle of the pack in front you know everybody goes out well. You just pass guys funny but at this track which is one of my favorite behalf I've hundred courses from years past the adopted parts of it for the Beha- four hundred this year and a lot out of it is single lane. No passing Baja hasn't got a lot of rain and so it was literally just unforeseeable the dust I was just wicked wicked and drivers you know having to fight through just catastrophic conditions and a lot of it was like a train you know there was no passing so you catch the guy in in front of you and they're not pulling over and you just eating dust the entire time well you know. I don't know it didn't favor anybody right. Some of the fastest drivers ars didn't matter how fast you're you're caught up and no way to get around so it made for made for an interesting race down there and you know in in some comments afterwards on the podium and on social media and now on some of the Internet forums and things like that it's really it's really got to be entertaining you know and people talking talking about all this sponsor and that sponsor and you know and this guy wasn't able to get you know his do and he said she said whatever end of the day or I in our CIERO zero walked away with victory he will be our guest this week on the show and it's GonNa be really interesting to see what Ryan asked to say about all the chaos and stuff stuff that ensued in Bonn and granted. He's going to be a little bit bias because it all worked in his favor but you know in the case guys like Andy McMillan who finished second and and honesty has had some great things to say about right and everybody loves Ryan are Sierra and can appreciate his talent. You know didn't think he got a fair shake at the win. you know and speaking of that. I've gotTA gotta say man toughed up break there for Dan McMillan that truck burned to the ground and it doesn't sound like it was any driver err on anybody's part it just man Dan something happened and probably never will know because there's nothing left of the truck pictures float around social media. I mean you know you hate seeing a half million dollar race vehicle just completely lately you know in ashes and that's basically what that truck is and just a heart heartbreaker for them. Such an amazing family do a lot for the sport and you know you know they're going to be back. you know with another vehicle. Obviously they've got a couple of trucks Luke's truck and I'm sure I mean Dan team up and run that thing at the one thousand but years hate hate seeing something like that Martin people who put their blood sweat and tears into the sport and you know for truck just to go up in smoke like that definitely definitely heartbreaker so yeah so that happened in aw meanwhile best in the desert decided they were going to flip the script on everything and you flip the script on everything and rewrite the rulebook entirely early for sixty one hundred so a lot of people have been pressuring them to bring in forty inch tires to best in the desert now they all of sudden did that general tire only he makes a thirty-seven which makes you wonder if is out of best in the desert now or at least that class like I don't know there's there's a lot of interesting stuff in regards to that but now they're allowing under drives because you go to the bigger tire you've got to have underdrive now. All of a sudden they're allowing the bigger engines like score uses so bigger engines. It's bigger tires under drives and they go hand in hand right to spend those tires need an underdrive and you need a bigger engine so it's to the point now where best measured opens all that up. There's only a couple Lamont's for the start of the season so people are scrambling writing massive massive five figure mid five figure checks for all of this stuff and like crazy to me to make that announcement to make that announcement this late and then you makes you wonder now sixty one hundred truck has bigger engines got under drives got forty inspires what really separates a sixty one hundred from a trophy truck other than the fact that two will drive trophy trucks other than the fact that you know Oh. You don't have nine hundred horsepower now. You've only got five hundred fifty other than that. You've basically got a trophy truck like I don't like to me. I don't know where the sport it is going. It's this classes amazing because it was cost effective to begin with and it was a trophy trucks becker trophy truck light right well not any longer then that that ship has sailed and I know what we're looking at it. I mean I know like people are gonNA spend that money right to compete to run up front you have to but at this point like what makes somebody go and build a sixty one hundred truck instead of a trophy truck their damn near the same cost like I think the classes kind of lost what you you know what it was it was basically a mini version of a trophy jury not a mini version but a a cost effective version trophy truck. I don't think it's cost effective any longer. I I don't know like I I. It makes you wonder now with four wheel. Drive coming in trophy truck are all of a sudden you neo two older is going to be phased out and SPEC will be that two wheel drive class and you'll just have four wheel drives the unlimited division like I don't know but like why I just I don't understand why somebody will build a sixty one hundred truck with forty inch tires underdrive bigger engine and not just building to we'll drive. Trophy trucks makes absolutely no sense instant me makes absolutely no sense to me. Why best in the desert would make this rule? Change will only a couple of months before the new season starts. you know normally rule changes are phased in now anybody where the older engine package. They're forced to write this massive check for next year or they're not going to be competitive like something like this you at least give a twelve month window and heads up two teams. You don't do it like now this. They should have announced back in January. Hey and twenty twenty four making these changes. Let everybody prepare air. Let the tire companies that only make thirty seven inch tire contemplate whether they wanna make a forty or not like. I don't know it doesn't make a lot of sense to me. We got all kinds of of all kinds of craziness happening in the world of offroad right. Now you know it's. I don't know you know it's. I'm dumbfounded you. you know and I think that's probably that's part of the draw desert racing is that we are the wild west. It's part of the drawback to desert racing that we are the wild west. I I mean you know you take Lucas for instance. They wanted to make a Perot to engine you know take the engine package and adopt that Midwest package with a four tenths you know and in doing so they tell the teams hey this is where we're going ultimately and like twenty twenty one right. We're going to give you two years to adopt an the in between We're GONNA you know we're going to allow those new engines and they're you know going to have a staggered start or whatever they basically gave everybody a two year window. Get get their stuff together. That's the way to do it tip of the capital Lucas this pull the rug out for Matt and everybody three months before the start of the season season and make them right. You know forty fifty thousand dollars in checks to be competitive wrong not the right way to do things. I you know and it's like you just speech your head against the wall because it's like with desert racing. It's like we take one step forward two steps back at times I just I don't get it. I don't understand that logic and and you know and I'm sure there's money to be made and that's ultimately why things happened the way they did but at the end of the day you know sometimes you've got to you got to ignore the the checks being waived in front of you and do what's best for the health and the longevity of the sport and I do think ultimately with sixty one hundred a rules package that was similar to scores was was what needed to happen but I think to do that and only give your teams which you know there's forty forty plus sixty one hundreds investment advisor and only given three months to daft to that like I think shooting yourself in the foot you gotTa Piss off a lot of teams. I know me if it was me. I'd be looking at that and sixty one hundred being like I'm not gonNA stop these. I'm just going to throw the big all eight hundred fifty horsepower V. Eight in there and and forget sixty one hundred hell of it go to the unlimited class you know I think that's probably the smart choice for a lot of teams and it'll be interesting to see which teams actually do go that route but we're definitely gonNA dissect more this with Ryan our CFO at least in regards guards to score and more of the six hundred debate on the offroad edition this week but we are going to take a short commercial break we come back.

"At road Atlanta that c seven our vet of years eight hundred fifty horsepower, what that thing topping out at down that back straight road Atlanta about a hundred and eighty five or so I think fast car, I'm in covered over there. Very fast track. Yeah. When you drive in that car there Simon. They pulled hard all the way down the straightaway. It makes it turned nine a curve. Even though it looks like straightaway for low powered car, right? And it's really really. Takes a lot of balls on that back straight because you got to kind of figure out when it's time to back it off feel like you could keep going for a while. And also insane. Speaking of sort of chicanes that thing used to just go right over the top of the hill. Right. Yeah. When I started racing ninety seven we hit hit that dip gravity cavity fly to there. And then slam on the brakes before the bridge. It was a lot different track back then. These days when they had the blow vers? Yeah. Cars literally catching air and turn over blue over there. Wow. Stadium trucks. Yeah. He head that it lime rock to. I I do believe for some reason sounds familiar, maybe teepee car or something like that. Here's a good. I am at road Atlanta. I think three out of the I four laps. I drove off into the hot area coming over that hill just seemed to make sense to it is confusing because you know, they've changed that they call the one side, the pro paddock. And then the other side kind of like, the club paddock or whatever. They call it. A and it can be confusing. When you go over that hill, you makes all the sense in the world just to stay out wide landslide. And then you blink your eyes. Like, oh, I'm going. I'm going off this trap already. Did this? Right. Yeah. If you go out and pretend like something's wrong with the car to sit there for a minute pretend like you're doing something. But then blowing off I thought it was fine. Now Dow down now going just keep going. Yeah. So cloudy does out there with the his team Claudio is a guy. Are you a chemist by trade, a polymer chemist kind of you know, I don't have an official degree. But I apprenticed, you know, long time under my father who had chemical engineering degree from Argentina that really wasn't ever a credited in America. You know, you get a degree sometimes another countries. And then that and that's no good. I don't care. How hard you studied? And how well you did didn't make any money off of it or whatever they didn't make any money off fine and Simon so Peter Peter perfect. Peter, Greg fame, Porsche driver and.

So anyway, because it comes down to like cost efficiency, they want the categories to be the racing categories to be and sequential starts really adding up the price. So maybe that's off the table for some of the other than other than ta proper team. Now that car would come with paddles. Maybe you can. Yeah. I don't know if that car comes with paddles like new Mustang has like a ten speed automatic like a paddle shift auto, and that's pretty fast. So anyway, they invited me to come to lime rock I love, by the way, I was saying. I had this funny moment yesterday. I my new house has like a workout room. But it's there's nothing in it. And there's nothing whatever. And I started sort of grabbing stuff from the warehouse from the containers bringing. So my old spock's stuff sort of bring it back and. Boxing gloves on the I gotta bring all this stuff. Back the bodies. And ta too must be there. Mustang Camaro challenger and now try to figure out if the Mustang has like what kind of shifting has. Or what a what are the rules are? I brought my balance board that thing that has the six inch tube in the middle. And then you put the thing on either end of it like a skateboard sorta do that groovy board thing on it it it's one of the things that looks a little hard is very easy to do. And I can just do it all all day. And I'd stand in what I what I do is. I'll jump up and turn direction and try to land on it again, which it a little bit Harry. I dunno from up to that anymore. But I'll do thing where I'll try to slide. It all the way to one side it has a stop. So like slide all the went one side hit the stop and try to slide. It all the way the other and hit the other stop and just monkey around go on it. Like, I'm standing in a boxing stance and face direction versus just go back and forth. Whatever. Yeah. So funny. It's like so the Talia was down there. Sunny was down there. We're all just down there. Sonny's ride in the lipped thing, you know, the town is like making fun of him calling him can man and trying to do but chin up on the whatever. And I'm writing the board. I'm like, hey, I was invited to another professional trans am race. And like, you know, the tally is unfazed. And I go that means you're daddy's professional, and as I'm saying it, I fall off the poor guy. Never fall off the poor. And I let go up a right in the middle of bragging, just go. The board goes flying out. I find out on the ground was like. Talion laughed Italian asked if you're okay. And so I said about going to lime rock for trans. Am race and sunny go. Oh, can I go which I like, I don't I don't in my impulses. Of course, you can go because this is something other than you sitting in a class staring out a window, right? He's going to say what about school you'll be like, screw it. Let's kinda lime rock four speed manual. Now, I don't think any of us could guest a four speed manual. I think the answer to four speed manual is for the t a to h pattern. Thank you, the four speed manual the answer to that would be they engine makes a ton of horsepower. It makes a ton of torque, and you don't need six pates. Also, maybe parody between the cars. Yeah. And I don't know at lime rock it's a tight track. It's a small track at. Willow springs. It's long track. I don't know if they let you throw five-speed in when you go to that. Or if there's any difference between any of the tracks..

"The whole idea like this is not a high tech series. This is not Formula one. This is an IRA l, you know, in a high tech series, they can make the engines tiny, right? And and by making the engines tiny, you can only extract four or five hundred horsepower out of him and you get the speed. Otherwise, the whole idea behind NASCAR is they're big, huge, heavy metal v, eight cars that are Lau. Loud and a rockets and have just like massively like ridiculous amounts of horsepower and they're like, we're going to take hundreds of horsepower way what person who's a big fan of NASCAR right now wants to see them take power away from the cars, no one, no one. No doesn't make God damp innocence already have the xfinity rates on Saturday. We don't need a second one on Sunday. Exactly. No, you're absolutely one hundred percent. Right. And how many times have you gotten the Woz man? By the way has has a nice car. He's I dig his car. And how many times have you gotten in the journey and you've driven around, you thought, you know what? This car is? Pretty nice. It would be nicer if somebody took one third of the power away from it, don't wanna see gas prices here. Okay. But no, like it's it doesn't massacre like now, let's be honest. How much is this gonna charge the smaller teams. Remember when member when the ghosts alliance race Malaya's said, we're gonna make things going to be better to buy whole new engines. They're going to have to a whole new thing. It's going to cause them a whole lot more money if it just this is so NASCAR, you're and you're absolutely right because the whole idea that they can argue is, oh, well, you know, by taking the eight hundred fifty horsepower motor restricting it to five hundred and fifty horsepower. It's going to level the playing field. No, I it'll ever the playing field for two races. And then during those two races, the Hendricks of the world, the JAGER's of the world, the the Stewart Haas's of the world will have those five hundred and fifty horsepower restricted engines in test bay, figuring out how to get six hundred horsepower out of five fifty and they'll do it, and it's going to cost a massive amount of money in the small teams can't do that. And so they're, they're gonna. It's gonna go right back to where it was racing will be exactly like it was. Were you the the big three or up front and the guys who were never going to be in the race before because they don't have enough money before there's still gonna be same way. So going to be some way except except that everybody's gonna have to spend a crap ton more money to get to six hundred horsepower from five hundred. Fifty. Oh, they're just letting the days go by with a water. Hold them down on the days. Go by waters, flowing underground. Same as it ever was. We'll see same Dame's same as it ever was. You may ask yourself visit my beautiful restrictor plate. It's not. It's a taper. This beautiful car of tomorrow. It's close. Sport. So keesa cane or as the sports broadcasts are in the town that I never go to anymore because always send me away from it said one time, Casey con. Casey come wanted to come back into over, but he's not gonna doctor said no and not NASCAR doctors, his personal doctors are like, I don't think so. Yeah, actually I have obtained the note the doctor's note. Oh, did you really God police? It's from it's from Casey. Kane's personal doctor. Dr. Vinnie Boombats. At least it's not Dr. Bob UI, they exactly, and he says, he said, he's tired of Casey. Cain, not get any respect. I used to go to have to sit out by the way. I just work at a hospital. Don't understand things at hospitals. Does he lost you really keep you out five weeks..

"These engines that very well could have eight hundred fifty horsepower are gonna have seven hundred fifty at short tracks. They're going to have more at short tracks, and then they're going to be restricted down to five hundred. Fifty horsepower at bigger tracks your California's Texas's Atlanta's daytonas Talladega with the exception of the Daytona five hundred which will have the old scores, strip plates. Why? Who knows then they're going to take the body. They're going to put a slightly bigger splitter on it a slightly bigger spoiler on some ducks and some other body crab all of which is designed to increase downforce and drag therefore making the cars slower and making them handle slightly better in the corners. So if you're thinking of you're hearing that you're thinking, boy, this sounds an awful lot like the car of tomorrow yet. That's basically what they're heading towards is are going back to carve tomorrow type of stuff they aren't going that far obviously, but the whole idea here, the whole idea, you're slowing the car sounds so much and adding so much dragged so that they handle in the corners. Basically what you're going to be able to do at Charlotte, which you're gonna be able to do at Talladega. Well, you could always do tell you what are you gonna be able to do at Charlotte and Texas and places like that, California, especially, you should be able to mash the pedal to the floor and hold it there the entire richer, not really gonna have to slow down the problem with that is that if you, if nobody has to slow down, how do you pass? Well, their whole idea there is you don't have to worry about that because there's going to be a draft at every race, and you're going to have to slingshot by people at every race, and they're trying to make every single mile and a half, two mile race, like a mini Mercian of Talladega and Daytona creating huge pack, having huge wrecks and making it. Like Bs craziness like the wroval. That's what they're doing. That's how I read. It isn't gonna work? No, it's going to look like every other goddamn race. That's what we said when they took the downforce away. That's what I'm going to say. When we when they're putting it back, it's always going to be the same. But their idea here is they're trying to manufacture a mini Daytona every single time we go out to the track. Member to buy two racing though? Yeah. That's what this is. This is the new to by. That's the old hot. That's the old bus that this is the new hot, some BS like that is going to happen. You know it, you know some BS like that's going to happen where they figure that out. And then it's going to ruin the whole concept and they're going to have to the Neal's, go swing all the way back the other way. Again, it's just gonna go back and forth and back and forth, and back and forth and sits leaving it in the middle, leaving it alone in letting these guys race over an under seven and a half racist changed the packets. Oh, man, that's a tough one who, because you know them Daytona, they're going to obviously not that that's one out of the way then immediately start going to these tracks where it's going to be. There's can be factor. I, I think the over, but not by much, I think like maybe eight or nine races and all of a sudden the knee jerk is going to happen, and they're going to start to revert all the changes back. Race, five were back, go into different things. You don't take your with the by race, five and and the thing about it is the reason that you might be right is because I was thinking of it from an arrow perspective, and I don't think they'll make major changes right away to the body kit because then you have to redo all the cars, however, where you might win that one is the horsepower because all they have to do is say, oh, you don't have to put that that throttle body in certain anymore. You can pull that out. Me more respect. I think the drivers are going to complain so much about the five hundred and fifty horsepower that they're, they're gonna have no choice, but to roll back the power changes on the cars and give them horsepower back and think about it for a second..
