Fresh update on "stephan" discussed on Doug Stephan
"The hour. I'm Doug Stephan on with Victoria Keelan and General Horn and Jake Kirshner on the D. J. V program, where they focus on the difference between production and consumption. Think about this. For a minute, ladies. What is it? And I wonder about this and how it applies to our Predicament here in this country. We're worried about prosperity. Worried about our economy, that sort of thing. Can you spend your way to prosperity? Ah, lot of people say yeah. Yeah, You can do that. But where's the money? Come from that we're spending. That's the question about Was the $91.9 billion spending. Bill has all kinds of infrastructure jobs ended things that are supposed to put everybody to work and we have to have unemployment and things like that. I don't know. I just I wonder. I don't know. I don't know the answer. I do know, though, in terms of producing things and then people buying things, the various venues that we have think about how many different choices we have. By the same thing often times like when we're talking about the clear product that we advertised in the program. You can get it in stores and get on Amazon and get it. EBay. And so I was thinking about this in regard to Costco and what they're doing. You know how that how many workers Costco has take a guess How many people around the country work for Costco? Anybody want to guess a lot a lot. That's good. Jennifer. Yes, that's good 185 hour on a lot. There are $100 walmart or is that Sam's club that I'm thinking of Sam's Club is owned by Wal Mart, and they're not anywhere near his, except they're pretty much defunct. In fact, Costco is is basically taking not only when it comes to BJ's and Wal Mart. And now the online focus from Costco is on Amazon, which I think is a really good thing. Because Amazon has gotten much too for me anyway. Much too powerful, much too influential. So many things that they're putting too many people, you know, Okay, we'll buy everything in Amazon. All right. So what does that do to the price of it? I know, although they're supposedly less expensive, often ties him buying it someplace else. So this week, Costco is raising the wages the starting wages to $16 an hour for all of these 180,000 workers. I think that's pretty astounding when you think about the fact that the minimum wage his half that in most states around the country They started. She pissed employees 15 an hour, So Costco's doing better. And they're They upped it by a dollar that well, but half of their hourly workers now, according to this information that I'm looking at From Bloomberg. ER paid 25 bucks an hour, which is a hell of a lot more than with again and Amazon and so, but the service that it's kind of like the old days. Remember when people used to say they loved working for Southwest Airlines? It was one of the most popular country of companies to work for. In the country will now 60% of the employees at Costco. I say that they love it there, and they're proud to work there, Which is kind of an interesting real. How often do you say that? Do you tell people when you're working on this program when people say to you, J? What do you do for a living? Well, I do this radio program. And do you say you're proud? I didn't. I'm not asking whether them not for any particular reason. But would you is this the kind of a job that you're proud to have? I guess that would be my question who has a job that would That you would consider me proud. I'm proud to be a policeman. I'm proud of you, Teacher. I'm proud to be a pilot. I'm proud to be view fill in the blank. Are you proud of what you do? Maybe that's the That's a great question of social media in a sense. Are you proud of the work that you do and where you're working? I think that's a really important for self satisfaction. Yeah, we're gonna get up on the show Twitter. Facebook? Yeah. I just think that this is the sort of thing Where is it all about pay. I find more often than not. It's not Working conditions. Happy workers are dedicated workers and I think that that is And then when you go down the road a little bit further, if you have if you're encountering and I used my trip blast out of the airplane The people. There were two I was on two different flights. The first flight, the people that were in charge that is the staff. They've sort of wait. Staff of you will. The flight attendants were grumpy. Nasty and arrogant. But when I got to Dallas and get on the other plane, the people that were on that plane with fabulous they were so happy to see is that they're heavy have is onboard people having a bad day, but the whole career job. Everybody has a better. Who knows. You don't know what they just came from. Usually there's another flight ahead of yours. Who knows? I understand that, but it just seems to me that you're when you're in the service business either. Should put that face on or go get another job. You know, working Amazon? We don't have to talk to anybody. If that's the way it is, But anyway, I was thinking that it was It was a smart move for Costco. And I wonder how much they're expanding. We have. I don't have. We have won the closest one hears about 10 miles away. Remember the first introduction I had to Costco, Jennifer or was the one that was the time off of Venice? Jefferson in just south of Venice? That was the first time I was ever in In my living..

"And J. Two Jays and the D. J. V program, Victoria Keelan in the line of his well Focusing on the the ups, the downs, the ins, the outs, the good, the bad, the ugly all of that stuff, and what is in your mind as far as dreams or concerned if you any good Good day dreams. Did you have good dreams last night in your sleep? Do your dreams help you make decisions. I think that's one of the things that you wake up with. The biggest depends on whether you have vivid dreams or not. I knew a lady friend once who dreamt what she was going to cook for dinner. And that's how she decided what you was gonna cook her meals. Whatever reason. Yeah, that was my very conducive to a real life. I hope no well I don't. I'm forgetting what the cooking was like. I just remember that being the dream thing. Vaccine hesitancy of focus across the country. It would seem, although it's less now than it was before, ladies. It would seem so I'm getting my shot today. My first I think I'm actually going to get. I think it's Johnson Johnson. I'm getting so I wouldn't have toe worry about getting another shot. But one wonders if there are people who get the first shot, and they don't like it. They don't like their arm being sore. They don't like maybe giving cross with some of the flu. They this symbols if you will, the indicators of having the flu, and so they just don't get the second shot. I see the vaccine monitor here, though, suggests 57%. Of adults either have already the first shot or they have a plan. So where are we here with three of you? You? None of you too young to get the shot already, Right? Nobody here has got the job. Eligible. Yeah, Now they're not taking my age anymore. In California. They decided that that was effective because the governor's gonna get recalled. So he's got to get schools reopened again. And the only way to do that is to up the ante. So starting this week, they've been Vaccinating teachers, agriculture workers. Megan Gunnar shutters. Yeah, my daughter. Yep. Yeah. Yeah. So that is that a good plan? Well, it's probably its occupation based in New Jersey, where I am as well. Um, but we're just not in any high risk group, and we're and they're still trying to get you know they're there. Still a shortage of supply. So now with Johnson Johnson coming into the into the fold, hopefully that will help them get through the rest of teachers. And you know people who work in grocery stores and things like that. It's they've been, they've been trying to figure out who really like it's a very high high rate of infection. Among grocery store workers, so it would make sense well with that, then protected. Why would it be that it was higher and grocery stores supposed to a lot of people? If they're stocking shelves and things like that, they're they're shipment's coming in and out of the stores. They're exposed to more people than the average. Person who just goes into the store picks up with they needed and leaves, so there's that a lot of them are do not have health insurance there part time they don't seek medical help, because if they don't the fact that they don't have health insurance, their whole list of factors there, But I think it's smart to just start inoculating people who are exposed to the most people because they're spreading it around. So is there a circumstance in any state Anybody knows about where you are down in Nashville, J. The family members get to go, let's say younger family members. If they can claim that they care, taking their older family members, can they go and get a shot? Is it work like that? In some places? I don't certain states that is that is here in Massachusetts. It could be done. And I think you have to have a state. You have to have a little more proof than just being a goddamn caretaker. I'm ready for my shot. I know that. You have to have some sort of letter from the people that you work for, or there's gotta be some proof. You can't just show up and say I'm a caretaker. I think people have tried that. All right. So let's see 57% either. Have their shots are ready for them 22% or in a wait and see group. That's the group that seems to be going down in numbers. 15% say they don't want to get vaccinated. 70% say they don't want to get vaccinated. They are required to do it. And how would that be in work? I guess much as anything else some traveling acquire it. Yeah, I think there is there some. There's some in some travel situations they're gonna report on. Megan sent me a copy of the certificate. I had seen one of these before. What they know, says the date what kind of a vaccine you got, And when the second one, there's a place for the first time in the second time on the card But its book and when I looked at that have frankly thought that's pretties bookie working at what is there and what you may have to have in order to trap talking about the passport that the UK is is promoting and say they want to get people passports to get him back up and running again. If they had the vaccine and 230,000 people already within a week's time of signed petition, saying they don't want that. And it is creepy. It's like getting a mark, you know, Put the scarlet letter on you or something. The little acts that you badger your vaccine. It's weird. Yeah, it is kind of weird. So the discussion online or if you will in social media about the vaccines and what is right, what is wrong? Misinformation stuff, it's distorted. Apparently Twitter and I wondered, I was gonna ask you about this Victoria, whether the others will follow suit or are thinking about when I say the others, the other social media J. Whether you've seen this, it's Twitter. That's what they say They're going to do. What's Facebook doing? What's instagram doing? What are some of these other? These other the other social media. Do they have a system or is this just kind of today? This is the rule tomorrow. It'll be something else. And is this appropriate? Frankly, what's what's right and what's not. What's Kiki here? It feels a little icky to me. Well, The icky thing I think is is what people are saying that are completely untrue. Like Don't get a vaccine. It's a microchip. The government's tracking you There's a whole lot of that. That to me is pretty icky. Yeah. What the social media platforms are doing are trying to give people Actual facts and statistics and where people can go and do their own research of I mean on Instagram. Oh, your post contained covert. So we've attached a link where people can get information regarding Coben. Doesn't take down your post. It's just information that you know. Right and just kind of the whole thing I know, but you're not on social media and I'm we are and we're inundated every day with stupid people saying Really stupid things that then get passed around. Yeah, I mean, people share opinions on who's in this harbor traits there. You know, I said this to you. I don't know. I said it on the year off here. Somebody like Dr Jack Stockwell, who doesn't necessarily cotton to the same thing that came Kronos. So do you take this stuff down here? He was taking off on you. Tube. Jack was taken off YouTube. Jack doesn't say that microchips are in the vaccine. Yeah, You said that right? So Jack hasn't Jack hasn't has has an informed opinion about it? But he's not saying stupid stuff that you know that there's a believe me. There's so much stupid stuff on Twitter. It's ridiculous. There is, But then the problem is that people like Jack and people who don't post stupid things are still feeling the burn. Of the censorship because somebody it's a Facebook or Twitter thinks that what they say is inaccurate. And so they market that way, And that's the problem that people have had all along that sometimes they're not consistent that they're not marking everything. That's maybe that's a question. I had better things. And so there's no consistency, right? Yeah, that's what I'm wondering about. And now with that in mind, there's new Secretary of Education and the first focuses on reopening schools around the country. What's going on? I know here in Massachusetts. The edict has come out and was out actually, while going in the individual communities air playing with this wrestling with it, I'm of an opinion that everybody should be back in school now. That's where I come down on it. What about what are they doing in New Jersey? Victoria has been back in school the whole time in Jersey they were out initially for it was a couple weeks they went virtual full time, but they've been on the hybrid system. Actually, no it for a while. Now the kids are back in school. It's a shorter day, and they don't have like recess. And you know things like that. So it's just more condensed..

"All of our social media sites and Dougie will be along. Momentarily. He's making his way back. You travels. This is what Doug does. He travels overnight, so that crawl his way into the more. It's just, we're just waiting for him to arrive with bated breath. We've put out the red carpet. It's very exciting around here. Um, in the UK guys, something that is very disturbing that I feel like it will be coming to a country near you like America very soon. The United Kingdom. Has created this idea of the vaccine passport and they've done it for traveling and it's pretty controversial. Some people like it. Some people don't in the UK 230,000 people have signed an online petition asking the government not to implement a covert passport of vaccine passport. They say it would restrict the rights of people who decide not to get the cove it 19 vaccine. Was last week that the Prime Minister Boris Johnson, said the country would review of the possibility of a vaccine passport and this got those people are activated immediately signing Petition, Tolo. To try to stop this process, and the idea has been floated in this country to it hasn't really gotten legs and taken off yet, but I think many people are afraid that if we continue moving forward in the way that we are, if you want to travel if you want to go to a restaurant, even That you might need something like a passport that would prove to people that you have been vaccinated and I understand that we want to get people of accent. I understand. We want to get hurt immunity. But there's something about the idea. Victoria of a passport that makes me feel it's almost like you're getting that scarlet letter, right. You're getting like a tattoo on your forehead like you've been marked because you had the vaccine, and I just It feels very un American to me. Yeah, it's just it's any type of vaccination. Whether it's mean this is the one everyone's talking about right now, but it's so personal and so have and what if there are, you know, like my friend's Grandma has different, You know different health issues, and she's allergic to shellfish. She can't get any of the vaccines that are currently available. So she's not allowed to go anywhere because she's allergic to shellfish, and the vaccine might kill her. And then she has to explain that to people I don't know I'm not down with any of that. So I think it's I think the better news to focus on and especially here in the U. S. You know, more and more people are willing to get the vaccine, which I think is a great thing. So the more people who do get the vaccine, the faster we can actually reach her immunity. We can at least get 70% of the population inoculated and then we don't have to worry about this kind of stuff. I'm not sure how many people in the UK are refusing the vaccine, everyone that I know in in any part of Europe. Everyone's very much anxious to get it. So I don't know if this is even necessary if they reach for not being the same way we did. Yeah. And I don't have a problem. You know, I think you nailed it. It is a very personal decision for people. We've heard the story. There was a pretty famous story last week about the woman who was worried about the fertility issues of both of the men that could be caused by the majority and the Pfizer vaccine. And she decided that for her it was worth it not to take the vaccine, at least in that form, and she lost her job because of it. Now, that's up to the company that she works for, and you sign away your rights. She's not well employees, so they have the right to fire her for anything and vice versa. She has a right to quit for any reason. But at the same time is this Is this like marking people with the vaccine? Really where we want to go. And I think if you're watching people in the UK who might be more apt Toulon with something like this Because because it is a little bit different, culturally than America. And you see that the pushback there is so great. You could only imagine what it would be like here, and a lot of people were thinking that they were gonna I know. I remember this early on. You know, the real idea has the chip in it. So many people were afraid that they were going to be able to somehow load in or manipulate at something to that chip in your driver's license. Um, whether or not you had the vaccine, and that's how you will be determined whether you could get on a plane or a cruise ship, and that still may be what happens to get the travel industry back. But certainly I think the seriously the UK is good about it is like logistical thing for us. Logistically, though, the D M V is not going to be able to handle health records to upload something to your driver's license. I mean, just If people take a step back and go Oh, yeah, It's the D M V. They mess everything up. There is no way that they're going to manage millions and millions of vaccinations on your driver's license. They couldn't even let the woman who had who took her picture with the mask on went unnoticed. Do you know how many people worked at the D M V. Do you know how many people work in the? No, I don't. One s so I'm not really concerned with the D M V getting this the deeps on wonder whether or not I've had a vaccination. I'm okay with that. Well, the good news. As you mentioned the vaccine hesitancy at that rate is shrinking. So there were a lot of Americans who are unsure. But now the more people that are getting vaccine vaccinated it now it seems that more people are willing to do it too. This is such a human thing at once Somebody else does it. Then other people are willing to jump on board. We're all a bunch of living's, but This is good in the world of vaccination, because it does help to reach them that herd immunity that everybody is looking for..

Chris Broussard: LeBron is right, KD, Warriors Big 3 were better than Nets
"Asked about playing in next week's free for the first time on thursday. Lebron james pump the brakes on calling it. An unprecedented collection of talent reminding reporters quote. We forgot about katie. Stephan play. already. I mean there you go there you go right there of course lost back to back finals to the warriors big three that he referenced right then i first sard is back joining us. I don't think so chris. Do you agree with the brown hair. Well i i'm guessing that skip sensors and alterior motive. Oh i won't go there. I'll be interested in seeing what he says. But i'm going with the golden state guys staff clay and and i've got five reasons why number one the pieces fit together better when those three katie went to golden state. We had no questions about whether or not it was going to work because none of the guys are ball dominant. None of them needed the ball in their hands. A lot to be effective and give you twenty plus points. Obviously james harden and car. We have been bald dominant dribble it a lot which can make it more difficult to fit together now. They're fitting together great offensively but theoretically there games are a lot more ball dominant. Golden state guys to golden state was better defensively. And i'm not just talking about draymond green. Who's not even part of this conversation. You add katie. Who was younger and i. I'm sure it was a better defender at that point. Then he can be at this point a little older often an achilles injury and then klay thompson was a legitimately very good defender. He made an all nba. Defensive team steph obviously is in the category of harden and kyrie. None of them are really great defenders. The third thing better shooters as well as hard and kyrie shoe. And they are great shooters steph. Curry is the best shooter in nba history. So good that he changed the game. He literally changed the way the nba is played because he's such a great shooter and clay is arguably arguably the second greatest shooter of all time again that enables you to fit better together and certainly for today's game the better shooters i mean. That's a huge thing. You have fourth no drama. They they they were low maintenance guys in golden state k. d. had a little drama but for the most part that's a low maintenance group in brooklyn i i love his game but i gotta worry about kyrie. He was playing great at the beginning of the season. And then all of a sudden just went awol. Is that going to happen again. Is going to be happy. The entire season playing shooting guard. Or will he get the rich to have the ball in his hands more again even last night. Why was car sitting out. They said back tightness. But i bet you replace the next five games and is fine and plays great like they need to be on the floor as much as possible. I can't be legitimately injured hamstring but kyrie hard and they don't need to be just sitting out to rest are so the drama a is there. And here's the final thing steph and clay before k. got there. They proved that they could lead a team to a championship. They proved they didn't need this transcendent lebron or k. d. or somebody like that to lead them to a championship. They didn't need a stack team. They did it on their own k. D. was certainly the best player on those golden state teams but he went to a champion. Already he is still yet to prove. He can lead his own team to a championship. Even though it was the best player kyri hit one of the greatest shots in nba. History may be the greatest. But obviously that was lebron's team. Kyrie has have much playoff success without lebron james yet and we know harden has yet to prove that he can lead a team to a championship. So for all those reasons. I'm going with golden state

It's it's loyalty you so please be loyal to rock and roll like to welcome in our next guest. Some really excited about this.

Album outweigh back in ninety three and straightaway man chicago and northern illinois radio in general. They really embrace this. And i feel like it's a relationship that i've been really fortunate to have for gosh man crazy number thirty years ago long time and you have some connection here too in chicago. I know steph from f three design. I think he does your local man. Stephon stephan does everything. He's yeah steffen. I think the first thing he did for me was help me. Get my website design in early two thousands and then Bizmart work for me. On my i guess my second solo album which was in a stick record and then when he has started warns. The arm in You know i've been a proud supporter of their clothing company and i love awareness stuff and they're just they're to of my favorite people on the planet. They're like family to us. Yeah i've known stephan for gosh. It's gotta be two decades three decades almost and i used to live with this rock band in chicago and he used to do. They're designed to as well in all their kind of marketing in and You know other kind kinda website and designing stuff. And i've known him so i run into him at shows like him and i always like bump into each other like. Hey man what's going on so it's always good to see him. That's amazing you've known him longer than i have. So that's That's really cool. And i'm i'm so proud of the growth. They've had their company and They're both incredibly talented. And it's inspiring you know for them to start their own kind of mom and pop business as they as they have and they grown it to the level that they have. I'm really proud to be a part of their circle. Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.

"One wonders if race was involved in that shoot out down in Florida this week. Couple of FBI agents killed They were supposedly searching an apartment in a porno case. Child pornography case. And this was one of you know when you think about it, but I think it's hard to say that Reyes is involved. This was an investigation of a child pornography and the suspect opened fire and killed two FBI agents and then turned the gun on himself. I'm to be honest, I read all I read the story in several different sources. I don't even know the race of anybody involved. So I don't know. Are you? Are you saying you saw race involved? I just want I thought one of one of the agents was black. That's all. I don't know any more about it than that. I know that the SWAT team was all over. This is a town that's a pretty actually, I spent a lot of time when I was working in Florida spent a lot of time somebody that I knew well lived in sunrise.

"stephan" Discussed on SEO 101
"Tell us a little bit about how much things have changed. It's been quite a journey. Free has been a journey for all of us but Alan on this wild ride. That wasn't just an internet business journey. It was a personal transformation. Johnny to i'll. I'll get to that in a minute but from an internet marketing perspective. Yeah things have changed a lot. I remember using web position. Gold and thinking. Wow this is really having to make a separate version for every one of these search engines of the same content just feels really nikki to me and and wasteful and stupid and. I just did not like doing that. And didn't do much of it because they hated it so much and thankfully that was something that just got became irrelevant when google came along when Actually when backrub came line which became google. Can you believe that was the name of of kids to their dorm room looking to name things. Funny thing names you know so. I just fell in love with google and wanted to figure out how to reverse engineer it and at the time we were building ecommerce websites as the primary business but baking. Seo into those websites became a fiction of ours and and for me in particular and then i realized that there are a lot of other kinds of websites out there and bigger businesses who would never hire a small agency to build an ecommerce site for them. Because maybe it's a huge brand like target dot com or something so we wanted to offer audits and standalone seo consultancy services beyond just making it into an ecommerce website build and That was back in two thousand or so two thousand two thousand and one and We've been cash. it's been It's been a long road and there've been a lot of google updates and it's not about chasing after the latest update. It's like driving a car using only the rear view mirror. If that's the case and my thet ford to the future of future proofing year Your business and Online business your website and so that would involve things like a and Scalable strategies things of course need to be pearly white hat not just pretty white hat and is to be you know super super white and stuff that you're comfortable sharing with google engineers and saying here's what i'm doing if there's anything you're at all not comfortable with you should reevaluate something. You are happy to to show off to google engineer or Be happy for your competitor. Discover when they're reverse engineering what you're up to in terms of seo than yeah you should reevaluate it. You've said you've mentioned reverse engineering a lot in the first couple minutes of this help take part of reverse of your career has reverse engineering big. Sounds like it's a big. Yeah so i figured out at pretty early stage in in my business career that i could not just reverse engineer google's algorithm but kind of Put a middleware layer between my clients website and the greater internet and thus i could Kind of search and replace real time things that were not search engine optimized on the core website but i would like to search engine optimize it and serve it up to and needed a proxy kind of middleware layer in order to do that. Because if i were to do that on the Let's say blue martini. If you remember that platform install it would take many minds. And maybe a million dollars to implement the changes that i wanted to see on the live site and so i invented a proxy reverse proxy technology Back in two thousand and three called gravity stream and that actually became the majority revenue producing component or part of the agency and a. It was a big reason why i was able to sell the agency in two thousand and ten because that was Like majority of the revenue was performance based pricing. We had client for example. zappa's We charge seven figures in Pay for performance Spend in a year's time because we were generating that much value for them. We charged on a cost per click basis. Fifteen cents a click so everybody wanted to sign up because folks who doesn't want pay for performance if you don't get the performance you don't get the value you don't pay for it so we bring that back down to kind of our core audience which is really people that are just learning about see. Oh just trying to understand how to get better at seo. What can they do at their level. What kind of things would make sense for them to try to reverse engineer without these big multi million dollar tools. Is there something they can do as as new people to really help them totally leverage yeah totally just off the cuff. Some examples here just doing a simple. Google search can help you to reverse engineer. Let's say what buzzfeed is doing in order to get so many links and and so much Click through nee click throughs. It's the the hook and the headline. That's kind of their secret sauce. They have the pick really good Images and they write the articles. Well and you know come up with great quizzes and all that as well but really it starts with the hook and then the headline and if you want to reverse engineer what they're doing as inspiration to raise your own viral content link worthy of viral content. So that you can get like they get. You might put in your topic. Plus site colin buzzfeed dot com in as a google search. And see what comes up as The articles and and the headlines if you want to get a little fancier with it you could do in title colon and then the topic. There's no space after the coal by the way so entitled colon plumbing for example if you're plumber and then site colon buzzfeed dot com. It's so simple. And yet you're aren being essentially ripping off in duplicating But i like. I said with using it as inspiration not copy and paste so. Let's actually do that. Site colon buzzfeed dot com and then in title colon plumbing or vice versa. Doesn't matter the order can do entitled i or cyclone i seven expert plumbing tips to keep in mind. This thanksgiving The race is on for plumbing at the push of a button. What was thanksgiving interesting. Yeah i was going to blow in me to wait a minute plumbing. I'm worried about his thanksgiving is the aftermath. But that's besides okay so anyways you you get the idea that you can find what for whatever topic it is. Unless it's super super nisha.

"stephan" Discussed on The Smoking Tire
"Limited and they don't always have the resources to build these exotic racing parts for these modern engines. And if they did it might be a a smaller As not that many people are looking to buy that stuff I I have a really good relationship with the guys at Mount tune who do the Ford stuff and they build a lot of and engines for Ford Factory race cars and for customer racing and they do pretty much all the focus RS tuning. I mean I don't really know anyone else's doing focus. RS TUNING TUNING here in California. I'm sure somebody is but I don't know and you know they The focus Rs. As as I learned because I had one fucking hated it but they did a lot out of work on it. It's really really complicated like Though between the how the turbo works and how that works and how all this different stuff is going on and if they get a lot of fucked up cars that come in there and they have to fix a lot of bad tunes that cause real damage in their car. They had a case case if they had a a stack of crate. Engines for the R. S. twenty-five Crate Engines was by thirty feet high. A whole wall of them because these we just take them off the rack be the cars blown up bad tunes. Take one off the rack throat in it was crazy. See like people just do not understand. How complicated the central because that would how much damage you cause? Yeah you know the different cars respond differently to the tune right or to being tuned You talked about the Subaru back in the days as when it came up to WRX. I think that was a car that a lot of people thought how to huge amount of potential but most of the guys that turn the boost up burnt broke the rings out like right away manual lose control or just building at home depot and then they were pretty low ceiling yeah and and And so like the twenty twenty supra it. The twenty point twenty super has a pretty response quite well to tuning especially in these guys make over six hundred horsepower with You know mild tuning setups on 'em do you think think that car like if you were to if a customer regular guy regular person with a supra wants a little more a little more. GO ON THEIR STREETCAR. And you do your basic your intake exhaust inner cooler in your tune. Do you think that based on what you've seen that motors robust enough that if you do the what you'd call the full bolt on treatment that you can run it as hard as if it was stock and not have to worry about smoking it or or breaking. I don't think you could run it as hard as stock. I think the design these cars to wear are one hundred and ten degrees in the desert and it can go full boost for twenty minutes ago. I think the duty cycle is lower as you start modifying the car more. And and if you're GONNA take your three hundred thirty five horsepower car and make five hundred fifty horsepower out of it you should expect to there might be. You may want to take it a little easier than maybe what the back three but look if these are streetcars and even race cars. I think that you with enough development development. Maybe you could but if you're just GonNa flow I'm just telling people like if you're GONNA go get a flash your computer and turn the horsepower. One hundred you may want to consider that you're outside the parameters where the factory designed it and if you're driving to Vegas as one hundred degrees outside and you're trying to two hundred miles an hour for twenty minutes. You may aside from the legal problems. There they want to watch your gauges a little more closely exactly but I think if you get a factory car you might not be able to break it trying to you know I agree. I think there's something really to be said if you WANNA go. If you're going to be the kind of person who's GonNa beat the shit out of the car a good argument to leave him alone. NO WELL NO I. I'm hi I'm all for modifying it. You don't get me wrong. I say I say modify it and go out and have fun with it and all of us. That are doing it for the street. You can only experience that power for moments moments because your blazing through any kind of light speed laws and all that stuff. If you're I can't imagine even stock cars if you're on the throttle full throttle for more than ten seconds second days you know you got guys they. They'll they'll build up their streetcar. Little bit they'll go to button willow. They'll go run streets and stuff and it'll be hot out there and you know I think that so so then if you're just you may want to and some cooling system stuff and and you need to think of it holistically and then that then it works. So that's why the guys put the racing tires on there and go to the track and all of a sudden they're breaks burning up and it's like well hang on a minute. Yeah so and then you put pads on there and you're not my my brake fluid's boiling it. gave you need some brake fluid and you put that on there and then keep kicking that ball down. But that's what's fun right is is You make you'd make you want to make the car more we'll have more power or have a quicker lap time and you figure out how to do it and you talk to your buddies and you've you've had some experience and you read the forums and stuff and you find out what guys are doing to successfully James says are forged engines and billet blocked technology viable for street use. What is the service life of a high powered to JC or an RV? And then he said Oh. What's your favorite brand of oil and filters? Yep so I'll take the flat part last Bob. So that is okay so oil disease Lucas oil and all of our stuff we're using a five W. fifty synthetic and we use that in all the racing cars and and then filters we use the filters When we use something that's external We've used The the canons Yup and then as far as the stuff. That is a good question that I don't know the answer that I'd also like to know the answer. Yeah we haven't worked with any of the bill at block stuff even with your huge powers you just don't even bother you just use regular regular blocks. We run such unique engines. That are like we don't run the JC. So maybe if we ran to Jay's but even then You went out making two thousand the horsepower and drift. And I think that's kind of fifteen hundred horsepower. Two thousand is when they start going to this bill at stuff so I don't actually have any experience with bill blocks But I always wondered seems like they make two different versions one with water that flows through it and then some that don't But the one that don't be like a like a pro stock like psycho psycho death drag car that doesn't even have like a cooling system. Yes that always bugged me out when they find out drag cars sometimes don't even have cooling systems because they only run for like like nine seconds. Chris does drag race and man. If you don't need it why take with you. Don't wait in crack Other than your Do do we have anything else. Someone asks if you remember an orange two-stroke Ruckus you built. That was the last question for you specifically. Yeah so a bunch of buddies and I got into this still pit of seen seen the scooter scene Bro. Can I join your scooter club. I have a Yamaha won twenty five. Let's go to upgrade to a VESPA three hundred because I want to go one hundred ten miles on our mice cooter with three hundred or go one hundred ten miles an hour. Have Fun with that. I don't ask don't actually do that. I do WANNA ride on highway. Yeah it was fun you know. We just lied luck. We all love modifying stuff and and the reality the scooter scene with with instead of the engine we put one hundred twenty five engine engine into it. Extend the swing arm. Different wheels tires handlebars paint. Like the whole deal so you know so that years ago and then bought a full size motorcycle were what he read. I don't ride anymore but had this was maybe eight years ago to Qadi Monster six nine. Six Tesla bike. Yeah Yeah I wish I always loved the monster too big derided though. It's like little. Its first smaller people. Th that fits I I got a I got a s V six fifty the the slightly bigger version and less Italian version of the same kind of tell you story when I was fifteen years old. I tried to talk my mom into letting me by a wiser can. Why is the little street bike? Many and I was like fourteen fifteen. I was like look at fifteen years old. I can go out and get a learner's permit to ride a motorcycle. I just can't go on the freeway or go at night But I can ride around the streets and stuff. She's like no just cycle and for years. I wanted to full size motorcycle recycle. Finally when I got one I was so busy writing defensively that I couldn't enjoy writing too scared. Yeah just not too scared thinking about all the danger lurking around you. Yep Yeah and I didn't have enough years of riding motorcycles goals to just go in the canyons and just have fun writing it. It was all right now counter. Sheila laid over. Okay look I want to keep your eyes shift in my in the regular like all all these different things versus just kind of flowing having fun and I realized that I like I'm a car guy not a motorcycle. I feel you I definitely feel you I I love. I love my scooter for beating traffic as a practical tool and parking upfront and the predictability of getting around town of in the CA- when I go fast I want that cage around around me. I won't some bodywork seatbelt. Yes do I have a question. What would be like like five tips or three nuggets of knowledge for someone who might be afraid to open up their engine for the first time? Yup So number one Do It on a car or an engine with low. Oh Two zero consequence. So don't take your take.

"You're taking a video which millions of people watched but I watched it as well and it. It helped me understand variable intake. Lift like how that mechanism works better than any of the animation videos that I've found just because you were showing the actual part but the you know it's completely taken apart and you. You just did a really good job of that thank you. Yeah he said where do you see electrification taking racing in the future if anymore so I think there's another big challenge that electric vehicles vehicles have in racing is. They're not very exciting to watch because they don't sound cool they don't have that they're missing one of the senses so I think that there's going to be a development end of it and you're seeing that with formerly right and blood manufacturers want to get in there because of the technical challenges and what they're gonNA learn on that end but unless they come out with something that I don't know of. Yeah there isn't something that interests me to go to the racetrack and watch an electric car. I'm with you I agree I want. You know that I- PACE SPEC I pace. They're running before formularly emily. It's brutal to watch man. It's really really terrible. The whole series. I mean I watched formerly out here in Long Beach. I think it was like three years ago. In the weekends indy cars and it was gimmicky interesting to see and it was kind of cool because they're on radio so they're sliding around a little bit more than the the race entire cards but after like like four or five laps I was like okay. It's not that exciting in here. So get into racing. Robby Gordon Stadium Super Trucks. He says shit flying through the air. It's not GonNa be loud. Let's see cars turning into airplanes definitely help but if you do that and they sound cool yeah it really is. It's it's it's hard to be a fan of an electric motor sport. It is. It makes. Like pikes Peak Hill. Climb cars make a lot of sense as vs that blast of power for like five minutes and then you're done that's perfect for any. Yeah last time. I saw them weren't many spectators on Pike's Actually Sports Stephan. Yeah you know what I've been a pike's peak once and I think what was really exciting. Wasn't that it was the variety eh vehicles that were going up there and And that's part of what I think is interesting about. motorsports is the variety of engines. That are a lot most especially drift. Once they're all so similar I start I like I'm not interested. Inspect classes like indy cars and stuff like that are interesting to me. Because the two engines in one chassis chassis and a whole bunch of drivers that I don't care about so not that not that it's not exciting in the P- for myself. Yeah you don't have someone to root for you know you can't you can't relate to any of it you know. I think it'd be cool to navy is an AV entrant in like a rally cross event. Holy Cross Awesome Ev. I think could be very very cool. This is where I think. Ev Works is if it's one of the formulas in a racing series. Yeah so I'm I'm a fan of the old indycar setup for the five hundred where they had all these obscure builds all these different engines. While I think it'd be interesting if there's an e card that came out to indy and I and I don't WanNa feel them but maybe there's a couple of them and maybe they're not as fast. Now let's see but the thing that's interesting is is you've got a turbine car and you've got an electric car and you got like the Piston car and the Turbo car and they're all kinds of different speeds and will it make the full. I five hundred miles. I Dunno so fun about like. FD is the tire sizes is determined by the way the vehicle right. So it's Kinda cool that you can still have these different combinations like well. All they bring a heavier car but they want more tire. So if you were to use yours like the indy five hundred zero. Maybe these guys use a turbine car. That goes forty miles an hour but it turns like crap so then you know you because you have to find ways to even out because someone will just find what's the best solution and run that one but if you make make the rules like allowed to be competitive with the different setup it's really cool cool Yup and I think that works for a few years and then everybody figures out the won't set an attorney Santa IAGO SAYS SINCE DRIFT CARS HAVE TO RUN at red line for several seconds. Do you build these engines differently than dragon. I think that's worded basically. That's I think you understand the question. A how do you build a drift engine for the task of very high. RPM At the lower range of speed and possibly being shoved with a face full of tire fire smoke during its entire run. So I know what he's asking and traditionally in motor sport drag racing. You're looking for a power band. A relatively flat torque curve and the engine a little technical here and you want to horse power to continue to increase as the RPM's increase so if you ever been into like a racing like an end car or or something like a high RPM naturally aspirated car as you get on the throttle and as the the RPM continues to increase the horsepower continues to increase all the way up to redline and you'll shift and you get another surge of that. Yes power as there are PM goes up. We don't don't actually want that kind of power band in drift Because the car is spending so much time near redline and if there ends up being a little bit of extra your grip in wants to pull the engine. RPM DOWN IT'S GONNA fall to an lower RPM where there's actually less power and it makes it easier for the tire to grip up and actually it's harder for the engine to keep the tires spinning. It was more like a rally car where you want to build. Yeah you do you want the Torque to peak out early and actually drop off offs the Horse Power. Let's say you've an PM of eight thousand which is your REV limiter. Want the engine peak horsepower to be about sixty eight hundred seven thousand RPM MM-HMM and then fall off as it gets to eight thousand RPM because as your driver's full-throttled going around the track he'll I'll bring it up to its normal. It'll come up to. Let's say seventy two hundred seventy five hundred PM. And because the horsepower drops off near before the REV limiter her it'll tend to hold at like seventy six hundred. Seventy seven hundred. Not just sit on the revocation. Okay cool and then sort of a self regulating mechanism. Just just. It's inherent in these types of engines to keep it off the REV limiter Yup and then as it may be grip up a little bit and the RPM get dragged down. There's actually more four power hour and then it starts to slip up again so it is that what it is like Slip Slip Grip and we can actually just on the turbo cars with having nitrous is come up to let's say seventy five hundred RPM and then shut off before it's the limiter. Oh essentially drag it down a little bit there. And if it drags down the nitrous can reactivate or maybe we have the boost come up to thirty PSI but after seven thousand Rpm we can have the bruce start dropping off a little bit so it doesn't go up and hit the rebel matter so there's a couple of things that we worked on over over the years number. One is making more power every year but once we got to the power that we wanted which was about a thousand We wanted to make another thousand. RPM Of revs so we were only ray revving the engine to about eight thousand eighty two hundred but when you make all that power now the thing wants to sit on the limiter so we've tried to get up to nine thousand RPM Ninety two hundred where the power will drop off and the now the driver has power from thirty five hundred RPM all the way up to nine thousand and has a very broad power and makes it much easier for the driver to improvise and it becomes more forgiving car and more competitive as well so funny. Wow Wow on my head a lot. But that is brilliant. Show race says Stefan you've always been the the says the shot. I think it's supposed to be shit. How how bad did the market crash of two thousand and eight hurt your business? So yeah there were some what do they call it. Adjustments Yeah Fortunately we're relatively small team The sponsorship amounts did go down a little bit but we are pretty lean and We able to just you know we made some cutbacks a little bit and we all make a little bit less money. But we're able to continue to do what we love and Any kind of push through any customer racing or do you only have factory backed racing efforts right now. We only work with We are willing to do Frederick Osborne which is in the Toyota Corolla hatchback which works for Toyota which we were told her and Jonathan Castro. WHO's out of Dominican Republic public? He has his own sponsors and everything But we handle all the logistics and building of the car and maintenance and everything for him. What does he drive? I'm not familiar with John Can-. He has a Toyota Corolla. La Or sorry. Excuse me a Toyota Eighty six. Oh Okay Oh Jeez nice looking car. Yeah so what's the engine setup in that car he uses the same came to a our engine. Yeah so he's the four cylinder informative drift right. Now it's an in line four owning now. How does that hard drive really the car? So the deal is that you know that. Gt says come with the Subaru The the flat four yeah which four it's sort sort of build? It's good but if you're trying to make eight hundred thousand horsepower for drift away. It's yeah so we took out that boxer flat four and put an in in line for and IT'S A. It's a great car. I think a little bit higher center gravity and what is factory plus five hundred. WHO gives a shit? Yeah yeah all right Jason says Steph give us some thoughts on BMW Valve Tron ick engines that use it he says have potentially limitless Cam lift but there's zero aftermarket control for it. Is that accurate. So my understanding is that he's correct is called the Beltran. So there's two different systems in the cylinder head that adjust others the Venus which adjust the CAM timing which is the like A. Ah Cam gear that adjust the CAM position relative to the crankshaft and as the voucher onic which changes the lift of the intake cam and they basically what happens is the camshaft turns and instead of it pushing directly on the vowel. It goes through a series of rocker arms. That can adjust the amount that that CAM opens the valve. The challenge is that you have to really understand the CAM profiles files and the rocker arm design to put a larger camshaft into it. That's beyond what we do as a team. So we saw like the B fifty eight engine that we're using In the supra at has that technology and we've used only use the factory camshaft and rocker arms. So we're limited on what the factory designed you know which has to meet commissions and Laura. PM Torque so we would like to run a larger camshaft But and I think it is good good technology but we're limited limited with the aftermarket and not. That's a lot of the challenge. Nowadays is the cars are so technically advanced that they take teams of engineers that specialize in that one system of that engine. And for the aftermarket. If you're dealing with you know X. X. Y. Z.. Cam Company They're.

"And and build it up and there's not a lot of real secret stuff until you get to the two thousand horsepower drag racing stuff but I wanna make a thousand horsepower to J. It's relatively straightforward forward are. Are there things about the two. You don't like as the design goes. I don't like the CASTERAN blocking us. Relatively heavy The cylinder head doesn't flow very well So they usually require quite a bit of boost to make a good power But I mean it's the valve train is very reliable. It's Cam directly over bucket. It limits the amount of The size of the Cam that you can use. But it's variable valve train The engines are very easily Purchased from Japanese importers and such because they were used in other cars other than just supervisor but yeah they're heavy heavy and a bit antiquated. I think as far as some of the technology it's and it seems like for a little while the LS was popular Just because it had talked down low and you know quick response and you guys seem to solve that you and other teams as well with like. There's not lagging nitrous. Turbo lag doesn't seem to exist anymore in the drivers are pretty good about getting driving around those things as well but now you're turning into it's not just you and your buddy go into the drift track. Now you've got an engine builder and a tuner and spare engines and all these and things because when you have all these variables that can go wrong like nitrous in turbo at any lag things go wrong and And you have to be able to have enough spare parts and n people to work on it. If you're just I mean there's a random question if you're a fact you know a factory backed team. You're backed by Toyota. I imagine quite a few levels and Rockstar is is big names on your shirt. Ca Frederick goes out and just engine just grenades not necessarily his faults wrong. Whatever boom? There's the engine. How fast can you get a new engine in that car? And how and WHO's footing the bill for that so that has happened more than once because we are pushing that two point seven liter engine really hard about an hour to change the engine. Good Yeah and you know. We used to change engines regularly in the drag racing program. Because you're always always pushing stuff to the limit you find out what breaks than you make that part stronger than you move and you push it again right. We do that in the drifting world here as well And and because as the tires get better and there's more grip than we need to have more power to turn those higher tires we need to continue to make more power the So yeah we will replace engine sometimes And we build the car and have spare so we can do that quickly. The a cost on that is on the team. That's on us so we don't WanNa Build. We don't WanNa blow stuff up for many reasons oats on you guys. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. Yeah I'll I'll just give a little one on one on on some motorsports teams typically will have The the team itself which is like an entity and they'll bring in sponsors and they have an allegation to go the different events and you try to be as competitive as you can for the budget that you have within the year if you crash the car six times and blow up six engines is and the sponsors. Didn't sign up for that So it's on the team and that's what being a good team is is is understanding All of those aspects of just building a reliable car and building something that the driver can do a good job in and and reading within the rule books and seeing how competitive you can build something All the logistics that come into racing team. which is you know you got all the guys you gotta fly out and and put up in hotels and transferred back and forth to the airport? So there's a lot to a team him than just you know tires on asphalt. What do you think was the biggest unexpected costs of your racing team when you got there and you went? Oh my God I have this two thou what which one was. What was the big shit moment? There travel is probably the largest Item The for a team. mm-hmm you're you're transporting these cars across country a couple times a year in a in a truck with a trailer need a driver for that worth that driver going to sleep every night while he's going across country you're flying a bunch of people in You every gotta stay in a hotel and feed everybody. It's it's it's actually more more than the actual vehicle self it's like TV same as TV. It's it's the same shit. It's just the the when you add up what it costs to bring ten people or twelve people. Oh anywhere you go. It's scary as hell. The cameras are less expensive than the people that. Yeah Yeah and that's what you know and I didn't even touch on the paying of the people but at the end of the day you know you WanNa make sure that you take care of your people and you want to bring in quality people for whatever production. You're doing yeah. I want to get to some questions from the audience audience. And I'm sorry I did. I meant to say to the top of the show that I we have a lot of super chat questions and I only want to take the ones that are actually Pertinent to what Stefan. So Oh if there's like just general car advice questions WE'RE GONNA screen shot them in when Zak and I do our next solo show. I will get them because I appreciate everybody's donations but when we have important people in studio I do want to focus on. Just the questions that pertain to their area of expertise and if we have time at the end maybe we'll get due to Some more so yes red lamborghinis are exactly what you need in your life stuff. I feel like this is an early model with carbon injected minds finds it minds that one you can tell you can tell How the how the engine cover goes? The engine covers very flat in the carburetor models and in the injected ones. It's got two humps on the outside so I saw one of these drive trains over at a Tillich shop scars out and huge isn't it. It's more gnarly. It's the whole drive train and everything and was astounding to me was looked like what's in like an outy or something right but it's backwards it. It is right. The engines is the engine the engines and back the gearbox goes forward from the engine it goes both ways because it also goes into the oil pan. Oh Yeah does yeah go. Oh both ways. Yeah it's it's a crazy ass car and what's crazy is the engine out. You gotta take the data top in the gearbox which ex you take you take take the body off of the frame no you take you take the rear bumper off and you take the engine cover off and it comes out the top. Have you had any big service on yours. I bought mine in the middle of a major service that they think they'd finished as part of my purchase deal and I have driven it. Six thousand thousand kilometers in a year and a hit cost me zero dollars. Oh wow it works absolutely flawlessly and it has tade for itself like not hasn't paid for itself but I've had it onto static photo shoots which will pay for another major service is if I need one. I'm fucking so stone. That car dude. I talked about all the time. It's like way too much but I tried to shit it and it rules and it works and wherever ever you go with it you win. You're the only one with that story for Kunda. Yeah bought the right car and I drive it driving. It kicks it very happy. Everybody James Chen has gotta changed. Yeah he's got the Pearl White closures mine. Is that color red okay with goals meals. Yeah Yeah what we got from the Audience Zach can't zoom in so the first one is as we no longer zoom in on this fucking thing well above the entire thing we could do Joe Leonard asking what are the best first jobs or internships if you WANNA be on the path to work at a shop like yours I think well I don't know if he asks us before Stefan started with Build a car race it but if someone showed up off the street and said I'll I'll do anything. What's the best way so my story is out of high school? I started going visiting and spending as much time at the place that built race engines and I literally started to sweep the floor. I'm a stand in the corner and was something. Follow them and pick it up and then eventually Li I start I I was like I'm bored. Washed the doors. It was like an old machine shop or something like that so I took a rag and stuff started watching the doors and I started learning the language learning the guys and they started trusting like. Oh this kid you know more in eventually. Yeah and and so that. That's what I was suggesting is find somebody that does something can you can learn from and without bothering them. Try to spend as much time Helping them as possible for free and and my argument is that so many people spend so much money to learn how to do something I don't think there's enough people that will my I dunno my theory he was. I'm GONNA do something for free to learn. It's very hard to just start. That's very hard for people. It's a lot easier. Sure I think for people to say I'm going to enroll in this thing and someone will teach me. There's a lot of people who email me and say. How do I do what you do? And the answer is so so simple that nobody likes it. Get cameras make videos with them. You know that's literally is your is your video but my video is going to suck. Oh yeah yeah it's going to suck and not only that it's going to suck for a long time. It may never be good. But that's the thing you do. Is You just go. You're going to go to school and you're going to build a video in school school and your vehicle is GonNa suck. Yeah and you'RE GONNA pay somebody to tell you that a suck. Yeah instead of just putting it on the web and for free people are going to tell you associated with bill. Tell you it sucks. Yeah so that's the same thing I think with you know. Maybe I guess we're getting something about the core of my personality is a bit of the Radi Fire Fire Angels and it's just perfect. Just go is a perfect metaphor for you. So the answer. The short answer to the question is intern. Yeah anywhere for for free. And what was the other question. How intern no? I mean that was what was the hardest part of the recent supra engine rebuilt. What are you? What's the status of that engine is that is that a running engine right now yet sitting on the the standard are shop right now waiting for What we're going to do with it is going to go into Frederick's car we have not decided we're trying to figure that it's it's fairly December right now you have a super sitting around with no engine in it? We do the engine. The engine came out of it. And just send you a crate motor you. You took it out of a car. Yeah they didn't if you wanted an engine you needed a whole car okay. I didn't know now if you're tight with Toyota maybe they can get your engine or whatever but I guess not..

"A car and then getting the best driver and then kind of putting together what you think is going to go in and then go win without really interesting series. Because you know the tanner in that in that in that cy on I mean I think was. It was great when he when he wou he won the championship card. And he no. He won the championship A COUPLE OF TIMES UNDER THREE HUNDRED Z Z. Second I think he talks to me for sure. It's very successful in that car Even if he didn't win the championship but like I mean that's got to be incredibly rewarding when you see a car that like is not rear wheel drive and you made it and and good drivers able to make it be successful but also like like I think formula drift kind of rewards the creativity. You know you've got that Italian dude. Who's running the Ferrari? Five nine nine now. Some guy was running a portion nine nine three a few years ago like complete lunatic. You know there's people who enter like really bizarre cars into that. I think it's like 'cause they WANNA be the guy driving the weird weird car they don't WanNa be just another to forty. It's the underbid of the underdog motor sport. You know we're we're. We're not racing with a stop watch and arguably we're not racing traditional racing cars and were turning right winward going around the left hand corner you know so There's a lot of us. Didn't grow up in the in the traditional motorsport family or or aspiring to be a traditional RACECAR driver working in a traditional scene. Maybe because we didn't like it that much felt it was the box was to defined and the drifting because you see the variety of cars and the diversity of tracks and the evolution Aleutian. That's going through quickly It's gotten a big following and I'm a fan as well as you know. Someone obviously competes in it but as we see this new generation of automotive enthusiasts come up typically Drift is on their radar. Well it's the most fun thing I think you can do in a car have you donny. Drifting yourself for sure. I competed for a few years driver. Drug what At first I had a Honda. S Two thousand actually had a Nissan to forty I for a year or so oh and then to a Honda s two thousand so eventually think of you as a builder. I don't think of you as a driver. What years were you competing? Two Thousand Four. I did a couple of events. Two thousand five five to two thousand seventeen the whole series. How did you do as a driver? poor the drifting. I mean I can get around the track. But how's this. You can yellow fs. Two thousand can't show drivers Stephan DACAS. Yeah so I can. I can drive the cars I've road race. I've run in an Honda challenge for years with NASA had a off road truck that I did Pro Light with the Lucas off road series. I've done a bunch of de Racing A.. And that's definitely still Well you take some owner liberties when you build the car and you go. Listen I gotTa make sure this thing works. You'll see time so this this is the deal is because you can't go to school to learn the stuff you have to learn hands on so I said Okay I want to get into drifting. I think this looks really fun. I'm going to build build a car. I'm GONNA drive it. I'M GONNA learn the language I'm GonNa Learn the guys I'm GonNA learn the vocabulary. I'm GONNA figure all this stuff out and then that way when we started the team brought on ten or fouls to drive the car and I was in the car we already had a lot of experience. On what what I thought it took to win. I just needed a driver. That could drive the car to win. And then you also spoke a good amount of the language language because you had done the driving and built the car and so he gave us feedback on what car is doing or not doing and stuff. You understood a better mouth into someone had come in just from like a different racing series without having competing even if they're an engineer you know it helps you speak that language together absolutely. Those are skills that I I can still I still use. Yeah what was the time between when you like. You decided to get into this sport. Did you go into it with kind of a simple car. I just just for fun. And then he started learning learning and then progressing to the other cars and going. Okay like you're busy sending yourself to a university to prepare yourself to run a team To build cars ars for competitors like how long has trajectory yep so I was running the drag racing program in two thousand four and two thousand five in parallel with the drift stuff. So we're in the full drag racing program and on the side I bill to forty S. X. in two thousand four did a couple of events first car basically just super super basic In two thousand five thousand. That was kind of going with everything we learned for the first the second car. Sorry from the first car and bill applying it to the second car and then in two thousand and four at the end of two thousand five retired from drag racing and then went full on drift in two thousand and six and then for the same budget that we're spending on the drag program. We're able able to do a two car. Drift program informed the drift. Really and I said you know. I think I can build a car that can win but I don't think I can drive to win. We need to win. And Tanner her faust a very driver do a little bit of rally stuff and students Um drifting in two thousand four two thousand five wanted to have a more competitive car car that he could drive. So the synergies they're lined up in. And Tanner drove are the the car that we built and The rest is history within three years we went to championships championships. And Wow and so what. Basically the formula was kind of like ready fire. Aim Let me get in there and let me build something. Let me try to have some fun on but learn a lot and then once we kind of figured it out. It's like let's do this and Let's go full on. Yeah Yeah Okay so have fun while you're learning and then and then focus surreal wants. You know what you need to do. Yeah and it has to be kind of low stakes right so when I first got into the drift it. It didn't really have sponsors on so much I wasn't I wasn't pushing it that hard because maybe I didn't look that good out there but then actually people people cared they're like oh you're getting to drift let me let me check it out or they wanNA know about the car and and it wasn't really that much always about. It is what I learned which is really important. I think leading all the way up to today was I think a lot of enthusiasts are not always I just interested in the person that one or the door the most competitive team. If you've got an interesting story or if you can if they can check out the car that's it's sort of interesting or maybe the way that you're building it or that story's interesting I think people are attracted to that not just people that win. Yeah I think that's probably true through especially if in the last five years when you have so much control of your own narrative And you can be an interesting person like I think of like it. Corey Crawford who is a great driver and you know has won some some did some winning at one level but he became kind of a personality. he wasn't able to win at the top top level for financial reasons. Or whatever the reasons was I. I don't wish Corey back on. I don't know but like he was able to turn his social media into a fauna reverend thing that would carry him in between kind of slow times of the driver. Yeah I've been inspired fired by guys like Corey and other people within the scene that were able to create a career not based on nobody stop it solely on on money. This is this the deal. Is I for drag racing for years. There was a couple of teams specially one team that they were really good they would beat us sometimes and they were the hardest working people to track and terrible at marketing and not that friendly only when people would come up to the pits and such and they would find themselves without a sponsor and without money to continue to go racing even though on paper they they were the most competitive and you could argue that they would be. There would be the most more successful team than ours but they weren't succeeding on the marketing end of it when people also if someone on sports a race team I think if I was going to support a race team I'd want to support a race team where could go to the race and like hanging out with the team would be fun. You know what I mean like the the the people would be fun. The car would be accessible. The driver would be cool. The food would be nice. Whatever it is you know that experience and if if you're a sucky team or a sucky team owner and you don't make your sponsors feel like they're you know they're to have a good time with you it probably isn't gonNA work out is it's the same thing with the guys that you work with on? They a lot of the guys that we work with Come out for the race weekends and don't necessarily work at our shop during the week or during the off season they have normal nine to five jobs they get time off and we. Can you know because the team needs to be a lar- larger on the race weekends then during the week at the shop. How big is your crew? You want to race weekend We were two cars we have about eleven people actually would against Moore said thirty. I wouldn't have been surprised. Okay yes good He's he's manageable. Everyone everybody to have a good time you know and and especially you know you're at the race track for four or five days with this crew. So do you want to. They have an enjoyable time and kind of going back a little bit to my drag racing days by two thousand five or so when we're really into the drag racing. It wasn't necessarily necessarily hiring my buddies anymore. It was hiring the person that was best at that job and it became corporates. Not what the right word but it became. I'm a little bit less of a bonding experience. And more of a job. And everybody had their specific roles But you weren't all there necessarily because you. I had a bunch of fun together over the weekend. It really started feeling like like this groundhog day were would show up. It'd be a quarter mile. We'd try I win and try to go fast and work on the car over and over and over again and then we pack everything up and then we do it again the next weekend and not so sounds like somebody. I'm talking like somebody that got a bit burnt out it. Look listen review two thousand cars. I know what it's like to be wanting to only be pushing upward and it's and you know sometimes it's everyday shit yep so now kind of like on this this next kind of version with all the drifting stuff I try to keep it way more enjoyable bowl and say you know what there might be this person. That's the best person we could hire But maybe they don't fit into the the team form our the team kind love vibe and we'll we'll we'll have somebody else on the team. I mean it doesn't seem to be hurting. Your standings. Frederick is doing quite well in the car car seems to work. I mean there's not a whole lot to complain about Papa. Doc is racing is there. There's more than one way to To build a race car to win wins Do a lot of things and and it's not. It's not just a math formula where there's a lot of different ways you can Such as a prime number right you. There's I understand. Yeah there's a and finding ways that are unorthodox is a really good way to win. You know we had Steve Dining on the show and Steve Dine on and talks about how he spent so much time. Not trying to add horsepower but trying to reduce parasitic losses and that ends up with an engine engine. That is more powerful and more reliable. You know what I mean and so it's just a different different way of looking at things like that and and that's the way that I look at. The competition team of the racing team nowadays nowadays is not just wins and trophies. It's actually having a good time at the track and when fans come up giving some kind of experience that might be more than just watching the cars go around the track. Nowadays it has so much to do with social media in the stuff that we We put out there as far as our own How our own exposure you know how will on trade creativity and If we're able to inspire people like I've been inspired all these years than that. That's rewarding for me as much as a trophy well. And it's funny. You brought that up because inspiring others in different ways interesting. Because you're doing this super series right with this beat the new beef fifty eight engine On Your Youtube Channel which is doing well if I am..

"Know. Eighty six eighty six Toyota Corolla past taste or Some of the guys the Mazdas with the rotaries and you know obviously the old classic porsches and if you don't love the Amex three with that crazy. V6 from Japan that like two liter V. Six that revs to a zillion RPM that motor rules. No one ever talks about it because the cars ugly ugly loses every time. It doesn't matter how cool your motor is is do so I want to get back to. You're talking about the schooling for the kids. Oh Yeah right yeah. I firmly believe that if someone wants to get into motorsport illegal. Ah I I would rather hire somebody. That had a experience on their own cars Or maybe with their friends cars and said came to me and said look. I've have built this car from the ground up. I've blown it up. I've rebuilt it. We've gone to the track we've learned how to drag race at a bit and you know he knows how to work with his buddies and I feel like there's there's a huge experience that really can help at the motorsports level lord necessarily going to a technical school and learning. How to use a ratchet Gotcha from the textbook or or you know some of the stuff? They may send you the school. Although I think he'd make the argument that an individual that will go through a couple a couple of years of school and show up on time and get good. Grades is also a skill. Probably a good employee. But I think that's a good point I mean if it you know it for a lot. A lot of people out there who might go. How do I become Stephan? The answer is probably in your own garage at least at least step one if not step fifty years and that's what I want to talk about that a little bit here because that's one of the questions I get asked. The most is how I do what you do. Or how do we get into motor sports. Because there isn't I mean here in the. US doesn't seem to be much of a stepping stone or much of a career day for the race teams. They don't really do much. Yeah they shut. Maybe maybe there should be a motor sports career day and someone should put something like that on who has some poll. Will you know the challenge. I think is kids that I don't WanNa be on a NASCAR team and travel around. DOING NASCAR don't necessarily want to change heads on a on a top fuel dragster. They like the sport compacts. They like the import cars. Are they like the drifting scene. They want to work in those. That makes it hard. Though is there's less paying jobs within that scene of you okay. There's few of them. They're smaller series. It's tough so you've spent on. That's a good. It's a could the run-up drift because in addition to these these very famous front wheel drive. drag right cars. You've also been responsible for some very successful drift cars. That the V.. EIGHT NASCAR CY. On the tanner drove which is one of my favorite Drift cars. Ars of all time. Frederick does This is a rear-drive converted Corolla Corolla Corolla and What else what are some of the others a couple more on the list? What else what else is on the list there of your formula drift greatest hits so we took a twenty twenty Was that a twenty two thousand nine scientists to real will drive yes We were assigned at the time. And we got a hold of the guys over at T.. Here de that did the NASCAR engines. When they had the V.? Eight engine they were able to flow us one of those and we put that in the front and ended up with a six hundred fifty horsepower. I power rear wheel drive converted SCIENC- pretend we did yeah. We built all the suspension for drift specific and went out there and and it was a top level competitor. Why ooh did? Did you decide. I'm going to start building drift cars right now or did a team come to you and say we have an idea. Or what was it that sparked the interest in drift cars at all around the age of twenty two to drag car around around two thousand seven thousand two thousand four two thousand five. I started getting a bit burnt out a drag racing so many years of it and traveling around the the you know the US. And every time I go to another track it'd be another quarter mile straight piece of asphalt which you know it's just some point. I just wanted to do something different and I had these dreams that I'm good drag racer. I could go road racing and maybe I should get a shifter card and maybe I can be any car driver and these other things and once I started going towards the road. Racing rider realized. Oh these guys have been doing this since they were six better than me. How much of the of the of it was being driven by your desire to be a driver and then have something awesome to drive versus? I WANNA be the guy who builds the engine that someone else gets in the car and drives from day one. I want to be the driver but I don't have money to get a race car so I need to figure out how to do it. Yeah and that's a lot of drivers stories But some are able to be a good enough driver to sort of end up having somebody work on their car But for me I was ended up being a better mechanic and car builder than a driver But as I was doing both in the drifting Seen as I got to go got a bit burnt out of the drag racing thing and kind of got to the top level eventually okay so in two thousand three to two thousand five. We were racing full tube. Chassis real drive. They've accurate ns ex. V Six twin turbo six hundred horsepower car. Whoa so that car dad drag car eventually eventually around six point five two in the quarter mile at home hundred fifteen miles an hour so it was always a celebration or a car? Where's that card? It was sold old. It's around somewhere. Yeah but the engine longitudinal in that car two or did you leave a transverse in that car it was. It was longitudinal so north south and but very traditional so the chassis was a NHRA pro stock chassis. It used a nature a drag racing specific transmission. It had seventeen inch wide tires in the rear visit in the front of the engine in the front engine from an accurate a sex but it was an but it wasn't utilized in the same ways. Yeah you like they like on mid engine we did so that was always the thing was we built really he crazy unique cars And but made sure that they were always competitive at the same time and that was that was the challenge. Right it wasn't about an still isn't about building something exotic is about building something challenging. That's also competitive. Yeah 'cause you can go to catalog and you can order stuff all day long but I don't I think that's very fun. I like to build stuff from the ground up. So once was a tube chassis cars well or was there anything. That was actually cy on about that. A lot of it was I. I on the way the rules in formula drift. Are you have to use the factory. UNIBODY you have to use the factory front and Rear Cross members You can only modify certain areas of it so we table to turn the engine ninety degrees we modified in and made room for the Bell Housing and the transmission tunnel through the center of the car. And of course the drive train and wiring in cooling system and all that stuff but it was all imagine like building a sailboat bottle. But we're building a race car in like a UNIBODY. Yeah well I just just last week. I went to The Hyundai proving grounds and I drove there are m nineteen. Have you seen this. Get a picture of Zach. It's it's basically. I don't think I'm answering from today. Yes is it is. It's basically like a loss ter- DTM car but it's made engine rear wheel drive. They moved the entire front sub frame with the engine. Everything to the rear. Does it rain some sort of serious in the. They're not saying they're kind of like wink winging that they're going to build a mid engine car and this is sort of the the Dev car for it so it's got an extract gearbox in it and it's got the tea CR powertrain so it's three read an eighty horsepower. Four hundred pounds of Torque goes like a motherfucker. I mean it's it's it's quite fast and handles pretty good too And it was really fun and I got to drive it last last week. And it It was shockingly complete car air conditioning. It worked so that. That's a really cool bill. It was really really like that stuff. And whoever built that definitely had a huge Knowledge level of every aspect of a car in order to get the drive train and the suspension suspension in the body and the electrical. And like you said maybe the air conditioning and stuff to work so that in the back yard factory money my video up right now. I got my video review and I wrote about it for road and track. You can go see those things if you care but with the drift car when you go okay we're gonNA build a rear wheel drive Cihan here and we're GONNA use a NASCAR ask car engine and we're GonNa make it work and it'll be within the rules are you. Are you taking a A real kind of like smokey eunuch kind of Ah attitude towards the rule book. Are you like a rules are meant to be broken. SORTA guy or bent to be a bent if it were the car was totally made built in the grey a section of the rules. Yeah and especially with former especially at that time very thin rulebook But that yes. The answer's yes. It's more a question of like. Do you enjoy finding the the area between the notes. You know what I mean in the rulebook I wanNA make a car as competitive as possible And sometimes to make a car more competitive you have to push the edges of the rulebook and as long as you can in debate skillfully debate some argument. Why you're you what you're doing? It should be legal then. Typically it does get Get through at least for the first year. But we'd had several rulebook changes in the series that we've raced in that the rules were changed to close loopholes. Yeah and that happens the next year when they go they figured that out. Shit Yeah I. It's a bit of a compliment. But the the argument for For what we do is look. We're starting with the front wheel drive vehicle and converting it to really drive and competing against at that time. We Even now Dodge Vipers Chevrolet Corvette. You're still dating about that against that. Same Dodge Viper that all that poor old who've annette and riper still kicking around. So that's the challenge that we've had with having obscure cars. Yeah obscure in the in the scene that we're not you know. These are very popular hard. And that's the thing is. These cars are her ubiquitous on the road but their obscure in in the series that were competing in so it takes a lot of innovation to make them competitive with very very traditional racing car based cars that were racing against. So that's why we have to push the rulebook to the edge and that's the enjoyable part and I guess it comes all the way back. Goes all the back to front wheel drive. Drag racing is trying to make something competitive. That just shouldn't be and that's the challenge. That's the thing that I love if it was just ordering up a car and then getting the best driver and then kind of putting together what you think is going to go in and then go win without really interesting series. Because you know the tanner in that in that in that cy on I mean I think was. It was great when he when he wou he won the championship card. And he no. He.

"Will drive tube chassis. I see drag race car. Came up with an idea of turning the engine ninety degrees so a two-day longitudinal and using a trans axle like what we would be in a Porsche Asia or like a doom bug in the front. Yeah and then what that allows Porsche type nine fifteen type gearbox or is it like some crazy sequential quench thick. It was a crazy sequential thing company called fourteen makes it they Baja type transactions for offroad vehicles and those that that doesn't look right at all. Turn the engine ninety degrees. It hung out farther. The engine hung out farther off the nose. Yeah and helped with more weight on the front tires. It also narrow the whole package and we're able to run longer. Better design suspension arms to have a better suspension on. The car is how. Yeah because like when you have a transverse engine you have all kinds of problems from turning radius to the side with the front wheels you can use to the length of your control arms and so you just free up. Likes a crazy amount of space. Wait so in this photo. It's a little cut off. The gearbox is mounted behind the engine or in front of the engine there behind right. It's the same as they have like. In the Audis Row K.. Or Subaru Right. where I right? There's an engine. And then the engine to the transmission the the rear end or call it. The differential is called behind the closet. Yeah and then the transmission is behind the axle. Okay glass very weird. Yup I actually got DEA. Walking around Sima Year probably nine hundred ninety nine and I was to look around. Never know we were going to be inspired and was looking under the hood of an Audi quattro and old Audi quattro and I was like Oh my God that configuration would work so well for drag racing and then started doing some research on different transactions that we could use and eventually found the guys in San Diego go for. Did you ever consider going for the full. All wheel drive there's considerations but the classes that were racing were front wheel drive and and like this modified class where would raise the back half. We'll drive cars yeah. It was hilarious. Because they'd have way more grip and launch. Yeah for hard. And then like the last three hundred feet of the quarter mile become screening by them like thirty miles an hour facile areas. Yeah so what it. What compels you to go so far in in front wheel drive in what is theoretically a class that it should be hard much harder to do that was just the challenge of it or you just love Hondas that much? It was the challenge. It was looked utha remember that I grew up. Non motorsports family didn't have the resources and the crew through that I was like my friends and like the culture that I was in it was a bit of an underdog deal like we were the front drag race. It's not the real dry. This four cylinder engines region's not the big V eight and so we were kind of like the underdogs and but those are typically the less expensive cars kind of to build. Are Those the cars that we happen to have. And we believe elite were blazing our own trail and motor sports doing this front wheel drive drag racing and that was just. That was our seen doing these racing sport compacts and the guys with their V8's and the guys with their mustangs were just they were doing something different and and we were having fun blazing a trail. Yeah so what you know you don't don't get to a I mean what's nine seconds and a four cylinder front wheel drive with nine hundred horsepower. Something like that. Yeah back then it was only about six hundred fifty. The cars were so light so this Karwi sixteen hundred and fifty pounds with me in it so everything was about if you have wait. Make sure it's in front of the front axle and that everything thing behind that is just GonNa slow you down so it was an interesting interesting science. That's so crazy. Yeah so okay so you built that car with your with with your body. Did you build it as a business. Enterprise at what point at what point does because that's a serious car. I mean it's you know it's a kind of car a hobbyist. Suppose could build. But that's you know that's the start of a business right when you're nineteen years old. You don't think that far ahead you know twenty years old so it was It was a passion project I was a few years out of high school and realized that I wanted to go into the motor sports scene and there were and maybe kinda still really aren't in here in the US. Very good schooling paths. If you're interested in motor sport I mean I always recommend the mechanical engineering hearing or something like that but I didn't have much guidance to trade type programs where you're learning the hands on engine repair any of those are those was the reason I ask is because I think I'm gonNA start working with this charity where we're GONNA do These sort of curated giveaway experiences Going to be like really like were you win. Really expensive cards can be awesome. But but as it's going to be to support this foundation. That sets up scholarships for people to go due to a variety like like the ten best mechanic schools like in the country. I think that's valid cause and I think if you want to work in the repair repair business or for a dealership or something like that that I have friends that make over a hundred thousand dollars working on you know Hondas and Toyotas and curricular cars so. It's absolutely a good job. I wanted to work in motorsports. I wanted to racing engines. I wanted to do that stuff so I took my college money and built Racecar and and the theory was that I'm GonNA learn more from this project and from this whole the whole building process so building cars not just physically working on it. It's sourcing parts is working with vendors. It's working with subcontractors uh-huh potentially sponsors in the future so this was starting a business which is a car but I honestly when I it was it was mostly a passion project With some hope. Hope that it could turn into some sort of business But it was it was all you know hopes and dreams and so we wanted to run nine hundred a quarter mile and we wanted to do it without any any stickers on the car any like product support because the idea was hopefully we could turn this into some sort of business Ah But unless we did it on our own and then hopefully got some like monetary sponsors then if we just put a bunch of stickers on the car that wouldn't help us as a business because he can't run the program on just part right so So once we got the car finished and went out there and ran nine signs and at the time. Okay let's set the stage for you guys a little bit. How take you to run nine? How many tries I think the second time to the track first or the second time that the track so we had already run in the mid ten okay so we had already known it kind of an idea of the formula? We need this much power. We need this tire at this weight. we we get close out of the box and then you find tune your way there within a couple of race weekends of within the first race weekend so pretty awesome the only stage so in nineteen ninety nine There was a lot of in one thousand nine. There's a big front wheel drive. Seeing you had the Super Street magazine magazine. Turbo magazine and I think maybe import tuner the homeowner was up culture of and there were street racers all over the US and there's just tons of there is a big seen going on such a big old white guys wrote a movie about it. They made a billion dollars and where people look at this information from would be like the magazines in Super Street would be the fastest from Dr Carin royal drive and all these everyone of these titles and but there was one title that was. It seemed like this crazy like barrier was the nine second front will drive quarter-mile. no-one had done that globally. And we wanted to be the first ones to do it and we built this car about six months or so brought it out to test day when no one around and actually ran a nine second quarter mile instead. We can't tell anybody. We actually went that quick though. It will believe so you know we wanted to do it in front of people. Yeah so and remember. This is before instagram. And and much of the web as we know it and caller reporter issue you a press release they the the first runs were filmed on vhs. Like over the shoulder hell yeah so We went out there and said you'll be tested a car. But we don't want to you know we didn't run off quick and so you had a friend of everybody's big Bali imports. We're able to run lines and it's this was his whole scene and because all of the media and everybody was at this battle. The imports event in Palmdale California. It really catapulted the team and I guess myself to the top level within the sport compact drag racing exceed. So did you instantly have a job already instantly have sponsors no. It took a little bit of a while to kind of ramp that up I had a buddy still buddy Frank Choi who ran the battle the imports events and he helped and held my hand and said look. This is what a proposal is and this is what you need to get some return on investment vestment for them and you should put on paper maybe the events you're GonNa do you know he helped me get some of my first sponsors and Because he was already working with sponsors authors with events right so easy to package it and bundle it or at least you know. Here's stuff and you meet this guy. And it was a partnership where he had these events and he wanted to get Outside the Los Angeles area and due events in the East Coast in Texas and Virginia And then I was going to be his headline show so people were finding what about this. Bow The imports. That was gonNA take place in At their local race track and the front will drive. Nine second car from seven Papadakis will be there and and that was a bit of the attraction so it was it was It was mutually beneficial for us to work together. That's awesome you're like bigfoot for drive cars for a little bit like bigfoot will be here you know. Come out to the truck expo thing but absolutely your huge name. Yeah it was. It was a thing because people had these cars and wanted to and that whole scene was picking up and everybody was dying for more information and the magazines and these events is where you would get that. When was the last time that car ran? You think in two thousand one thousand or two thousand one in a while. Yeah as a scary beast. We designed the lights go nine or eight seconds in front wheel drive drive cars at it. there's a lot going on so in that car. It was very analog so there was an end you can control system that was electronic but that only controlled the engine. It didn't help with the launching or anything like what so you mentioned in the name aim of gearbox but was it like a wild type of gearbox was also the first car. Yeah the one that at the Peterson that Honda Civic Honda prelude engine and transmission can early modified. Yeah but it's still used a clutch to shift so regular manual gearbox..

"We have a legend in Studio Stefan. Papa Dacas if if you know about drag racing or if you know about drifting you have certainly heard the name drag racing and drifting are two of the more opposite motor sports In terms of cars anyway drag racing all about the numbers. It's all going in a straight line. It's about solving that math problem right in drifting it's kind of opposite everything's everything's a corner and even a corner when it's not a corner you gotta make corners where they don't exist and Stefan Papa. Doc Says Build Championship winning engines and Chassis Ashby's in both drag racing and drifting And some other sports as well The dude is a legend.

I hope y'all had a good Thanksgiving weekend I sat at home with my cats which was really nice and then we went to Benny Honner last night. there's a story there. It's not just been on it but We'll get that it later because Stephan Papadakis is a studio. Hello Sir what's up man. Welcome thank you. Thank you for like racing up here. in like fucking seriously record tie Doug Karston like twenty two minutes or something yeah. Let's quick yeah crazy. Yeah thanks yeah you know. It's you guys super for local and I know we're in the same Car Seen Down here. Yeah we haven't spent that much time together but I'm glad we could finally get together and hang out. I've only met you like twice but I've heard your name like for years and years and years and years. I mean going back to like Oh Gee Honda drag racing Because I was in the Subaru back in the day though some crossover so I want to talk about like I actually want to do more instead of our usual bullshit. Nothing show actually WanNa talk about like how you became you. So you're from New York originally originally born in New York I. I've lived in southern California since I've been for for for years old. I don't have much of the culture you should go back and visit. You could get some of that I I sure yeah. My Mom's side is from up there and a couple of aunts that still live in the city. So Yeah I've gotta get your fee. Yeah yeah all right cool. So what what sparked the car thing for you where needed start. Oh man so not ish. Sure exactly 'cause my my dad my mom or not so into cars and no one in the family was into racing just from a really young age I was playing with the normal thing hot wheel leg always build the cars Atalay goes and then I started getting into radio controlled. Cars are cars. There's really heavily. Did you ever do slot cars to or did you go straight to the RC cars straight to the RC. Cars cars were for real nerds like me I did slot cars yep the nerds also drove on road RC cars. I only offer it in the dirt. Oh yeah the the on-road ones you know whenever I go to Fontana you know when you go to the track there's the the RC car. Har Track the drive by and you see the guys pitched up with their tents and they're up on that very tall thing like The big bleachers controlling their those fast. Actually the crazy. They're real fast. Real fast fast with electricity right like nitromethane was really fast back in the day but it was finicky and now it's just probably screams because because of motors being motors. Yep so now with a new lifeboat technology in the end the brushless motors. The electric are super powerful. But even back when I was racing. RC cars. The cars were very sophisticated. Suspension adjustable giampetri inboard shocks and stuff. Right like cantilevered suspensions yet so you know me being being a when I was twelve thirteen years old working on these. RC cars and really going out and raising your. I was learning how to be mechanical on a car. Had to make sure that stuff doesn't fall off off learning lines learning how to deal with other racers A lot of stuff that I think really helped me get into the real motor sports scene once I was old enough to drive. Yeah what was your first car. I car with a ninety one. Honda CIVIC SL. Oh that's good. What year was that? That was ninety. Three okay so you're with forty two forty three forty okay. Great so you are. You're a little older than me. I'm I just turned thirty eight so we like the same same kind of era for Cars Right so did you lust after that ninety one civic sl or did you fall into that civic sl. When I was fourteen years old I wanted a Mustang or Camaro? Because that's what was is the faster car. Look Kinda cool. You know within Iraq Dude. I was a diehard Fox body Super Fox body but my I had a Honda Homey to he was always getting that those weird parts from Japan. So that was that was the scene and when when I had some friends in the RC car seen around fifteen years old and they were into the Honda deals. They had Honda Civic. CRX PRELUDE A couple of other guys at Volkswagen's and random that the RC. People ended up in import cars and not in the muscle car seen or do you think there's a coincidence. There were some guys in the muscle car seats for sure this is an old mustang. And like an old datsun truck with like a small mall block Chevy so it was everything But for some reason I gravitated towards maybe the Honda stuff because the guys that were younger I was fifteen. But the guys that were seventeen eighteen and had the hondas not the old muscle. And when I realized that you can modify these Hondas or these these import cars or whatever real cars are is the same way you can modify the RC cars. I wasn't into the RC. Car Stephanie. More totally transitioned into the into the preliminary results. Change your suspensions and whatever and you end up in with similar are kind of results in the real cars as you wouldn't RC. Cars right totally. And when I was sixteen years old I was not about to get a muscle car or Camaro or a Mustang for my first car and my family but a Honda civic sure seemed like a reliable transportation. Little League parents know that people were modifying. I'm going to the street races crazy stuff with those cars. There was When the W like a little younger than you were the wrx I came out? It's when Pe- a couple of those kids could sneak those in under their parents. Oh Subaru all wheel drive mom or like and some of the more well off kids. They their parents didn't know what Audi s force were. Oh ask for like safety or something right like they didn't understand that like you're almost guaranteed a smash be five S.. Four into a telephone pole. If you start with so I. I had similar story but I wasn't crash in the car I had there was broken. Axles and BR Clutch was worn out. And then I transitioned to start grinding being. Because I'm speed shifting. It also does not reliable anymore need to get all the repairs done on my car liable car. That's always broken way. So you were you into 'cause I mean you're in you're like you know in your stats a lot of your early like Whoa Shit moments. Were drag racing related. Did you intentionally go. I'm going to get Honda and I'm GonNa go drag racing with it or did that just sort of happen on its own now. Know happened on his own organically through the scene. That was here in in southern California. I was actually really into the road racing stuff I was really into the off road racing truck like Mickey Thompson and such like that back then because that's what I was racing with the RC cars. But I didn't have the resources to go race at the racetrack with and what they were doing on. The street here was street racing. Sometimes we'd go up to the canyons canyons and go race around in the canyons and such what was the ninety scene like in the canyons was act. Was it cool. So in the ninety s seen in the canyons was just my my buddies and myself cruising around wasn't racing per se setting up like a street race. It was going out and just going faster the canyons. Because you heard about these fucking lunatics from like the seventies and eighties right who would actually race like on Mulholland and stuff like that. I heard there's always this crazy portion nine six four. That was like six hundred horsepower. Talking about what we've done the story on like the Mulholland back in the fifties and sixties is really big and then even Calabasas area like when INCORP was in high school like people go up and just time each other or race wheel the wheel like up and down certain parts of yeah of Malibu including like Jerry gentlemen who it was like in his forty s but ran a Miata with three degrees of cameras or something like that I. I've heard another story about some guy with crazy air cooled porsche. That could run on under two minutes up the snake or whatever you know whatever. The time was. Yeah wasn't Malibu or Angeles forest for you guys where you are driving around and I I was from Orange County so it was more. The Orange County's places Carbon Canyon. We'd go out to or take a highway. That's a little bit higher speed deal. Ortega highway is good gluck or likes this road road just off of Ortega highway sort of off the east end of it that supposedly very nice and very quiet. Yes so we had a lot of fun there but the real scene was was in the drag racing scene. Because that's where the clubs would all go to hang out and that's where when you meet your car quicker you could go grudge match somebody somebody and that's where you would get props in you would get kind of known. Yeah there was more way more of a scene there and so you started racing this car breaking it a lot presumably fixing it doing it again eventually. You cited probably right. I need a full race car and taught not to drive this thing around around pretty soon after I got my license They opened up Terminal Island raceway in Long Beach California and it was the mold street. Racer guys is a big willie and his whole crew and they wanted to get the street raises and bring them to the real track and they did a good job of you know finally opening up a quarter mile here locally. It was ten dollars to get in a race ace. Br the The tech inspection was very lenient. And we would go there and now could get actual times like mccaren fourteen second quarter mile or whatever whatever and make changes to our change. My driving and I can see how that was Improve or whatever and then that's when I really started getting into the actually the race track racing the road courses now the race track on the quarterback. Okay out. Yeah it was all just quarter-mile stuff. At that time. There was no as it wasn't just kind of like a chill spot the test as opposed to going out to Fontana or or or like a real track or is it a real drag strip so it.

"To you where on it this the dj show i'm doug stephan presenting general hornet victoria keelan happy to have you enjoying the day making it a good day there are a lot of things that people are talking about as is the case every day it's a fascinating way to make a living it's not a great way to make a lot of money anymore but it's fascinating way to to get into people's heads and understand motivation which is something that's always intrigued me so and i look around at all of the discussion about here's the headline supreme court guts labor movement you know how stupid that headline is this is something i actually worked on when i was a teacher i belonged to six unions in my life how many victoria you've belong to one or two how many of you belong to sag after that's it yeah jennifer youtube any other hanging after a screen actors guild after the unions that we belong to as public i was going to say public employees but visible performers i belong to after and sang for a long time i belong to the in order to to be on the air when i was a kid i had to belong to the electrical workers union because running engineer troll gord yeah i was allowed to near and on the air and i had a bunch of that i belong to the teacher's union when i was teaching school and that brought me around to understanding this whole business about public sector unions so this court this week has said they'd government workers who are represented by a union but don't want to join don't have to pay to cover the costs of the collective bargaining can i get the argument on both sides frankly if we're going to benefit you by negotiating auto pay dues 'cause you're better off i do too but the other side of it is that i have i had to join at first i didn't join the teacher's union and i was told by the older teachers who were there that if i didn't i would be ostracized and i didn't want to be ostracized so i ended up joining union and then i became the building rep it's one was like a fast shuffle so i was the union goon in the school and so i did express concern about paying for something it was it was called then and his call now the fair share the fee that we deserve to have because we have worked on your behalf so i didn't ask you to work on my behalf everybody has to get paid the same thing you know so we go along for the ride but this has been a big issue and it's getting bigger and bigger and bigger and now i guess they hinged their vote on free speech i don't quite get that i'll tell you why because while the unions of old i think had a real place because people couldn't afford their own attorneys they couldn't afford to do their own bargaining not everybody could have representation right to to make the best agreement for themselves to labor unions were effective however what's happened in the last probably twenty twenty five years is that unions have gone from really serving their members to becoming very big political bodies and they're acting is kind of the ultimate super pac where they use a lot of the money that comes to them from their dues from their union members and they use it to get behind candidates or to get behind issues and they use a politically so i actually know the woman who started this case her name's rebecca fredericks and she's from california.
