In this episode we mix it up because Ryan and Jana are in Monterey for Car Week so our producers stuck Berger in a room alone with Brian May of Trueform Technologies and Nick Johannes take’s Ryan’s place.
Berger gives Brian the standard interview questions and the episode becomes SpaceCult since Nick and Brian are nerds, it is probably for the best that Ryan wasn’t there because it would have just become Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s StarTalk radio show. Should we mention that Brian forms sentences consisting of. One. Word. At. A. Time? That might be an effect of the endless Redbulls he drinks, regardless Brian is one of the most interesting guests we’ve ever had on. Brian talks about his builds he has going on, what Trueform Technologies does and direct injection on a standalone ECU.
Our Patreon topic is about the best cars for a new driver, what you would look for if it’s your kid and why. Airbags get a pass as does the manual transmission and it should be easy to maintain. Just don’t have a car made of driving aides so they actually learn to drive, in fact a really good idea is to take them out to some autocross days or advanced drivers training classes.
In news a crashed Porsche 959 sold for a massive $425,000 at Mecum in Monterey and Maserati makes a performance version of their Levante and they named it after the coolest Oldsmobile of all time, the Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo. Since we don’t like CUVs here at Motorcult, we have used a picture of the Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo instead.
We round out the episode with Brian and Nick discussing ECU technology and ending up babbling on about the space shuttle.
