High Speed Stuff Wrap-up - NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow and Police Cars

Listen to High Speed Stuff on iTunes

Today, I think we'll just jump right into what Ben and I have been discussing on iTunes over the past several days. So, here's what you can expect to find on the High Speed Stuff podcast for the past week...

On Tuesday, Ben and I had a little talk about safety. Ha! I just realized that makes it sound like he was in trouble for some safety violation or something like that. And while that may be true (you never really know, do you?), I should clarify by saying that we were discussing NASCAR safety -- NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow, to be exact. I think you'll find it interesting as there's a little low-tech engineering and a little high-tech engineering that goes into NASCAR's latest car design. We talk about driver and fan reactions to the new car as well as all of the changes that NASCAR incorporated into its Car of Tomorrow design for safety's sake. If you enjoy listening to the High Speed Stuff racing discussions, then don't miss this one.

When Thursday rolled around, we completely switched gears and moved from the race track onto the streets. What do I mean by that? Well, we had a long (but interesting) conversation about police cars. Good stuff here, too. At least that's what I think, anyway. If you're not familiar with the features and functions of police cars, well, maybe you should take a few minutes to listen in on our conversation. We talk about how the cars are built, some of the special equipment that individual law enforcement agencies add to their vehicles and a few of the unique features that can only be found on police cars. We even talk a little bit about the Carbon Motors E7. If you don't know what that is, well, my advice is to listen to this podcast! As always, Ben and I had a great time with the topic and I think you'll find it not only informative, but fun, too.

Well, that's what's happening on the High Speed Stuff podcast this week. Why don't you head over to iTunes and give it a listen right now? Did I mention that it's free? Just don't forget while you're there to take the opportunity to browse through some of our older episodes and give us a little feedback. You can also let us know what you think in the comment section below, or if you'd rather send us an e-mail, you can do that, too. We always read the address at the end of each podcast.
