Woofcast #211
January 6, 2008
Duration: 27:04

Just Gabe and I tonight. Todd was watching his Jayhawks win the Orange Bowl! Before getting into it, db has finally figured out how to record and I think you will enjoy this show.
We pick on GP’s just a bit, but not really. Be sure to check out the new features of the site, especially the subscribe to comments via email. If you are hardcore and prefer to subscribe to comments via RSS, you can find the comments feed here.
Then, news of the week from Motoringfile.
Check back tomorrow for a fun show we did before New Years, joined by Matt Gifford. It was a great fun and I think you’ll really enjoy it! As a bonus, I will have that one ready for you earlier than normal, so keep an eye out here and in iTunes (or the Zune Marketplace) for that to show up.

Gabe got the idea to record a little something right before New Years since he had Matt Gifford at his place. We spent about 1/2 hour talking about MINI stuff, including going through the top 10 Motoringfile stories of 2007. It was great fun and we think you’ll enjoy this show.
With the craziness of the holiday finally behind us, we will be back on track with regular shows getting posted at regular times. We are also going to be doing even more live shows and on a more regular schedule. Keep an eye on the sites for more information on that.
And, as I mentioned last night, the voice mail line no longer works. It was a use-it-or-lose-it thing. It didn’t get used so we lost it. Not to worry as I will be coming up with a new way for you to leave audio comments.
Finally, for your viewing pleasure, you can check out the Noodle Rocket.

We are all back for our first real show of ’08 with a long show getting caught up.
To start, for those of you having trouble with iTunes, I have no idea what the problem is. The only thing I can think is to try to subscribe manually instead. Of course, any tips or tricks that you might have for us and the WRR listeners would be greatly appreciated!
AMVIV is coming up sooner than you think. Click over and register and get your room if you are planning on staying at Palace Station. There you will also find the schedule of events and other things that are going on in Las Vegas that same weekend.
Keep an eye out for a live show schedule. We’ve got it down enough to actually be able to do it on a regular basis.
Finally, news of the week from Motoringfile. Yes, I’m pretty sure we did some of the news last week, but we pushed on regardless. And yes, we talked about a monkey powered MINI.
Check back tomorrow for some rousing opinions on the Smart car.

Not so much with the MINIs tonight. Well, at little with the MINIs, but mostly about how MINI will be affected by SMART coming to the US. Personally, I’m not terribly interested in them, unless I can get the crazy looking one over there.
The video was already posted on MF. Click here if you missed it. It was part of a huge video Friday that you can revist here. And you must check out the Tata Nano from India. Only $2500 and we think it would self-destruct on impact.
AMVIV update…rooms are going fast. In fact, Tower Rooms are all booked, only Garden Room remain. Get yours while the getting is good! Also, just confirmed Robert in Toronto will be joining us this year at AMVIV! Someone will have to run him up to the snow to keep him from getting too home sick.

Starting with a bit of confusion. No, you didn’t hear an edit. Honest, we didn’t spend 20 minutes talking about warranty stuff and cut it out of tonights show. We really didn’t. But, if you tune in next week, there is a good chance we’ll be revisiting it.
AMVIV, or A MINI Vacation in Vegas or the event that Gabe won’t be attending. You should go over and make sure you are registered. By the way, Robert in Toronto and Michael Babischkin will both be there with us. Almost a full crew!
Gabe has news that he, again, is withholding. Maybe one of these days he’ll let us in on what it is. Otherwise, news of the week from Motoringfile.com.

How about a little brake talk before getting going? By the way, if you are wondering, US$1,000 is pretty steep for a brake job on the MINI. It’s about the easier car to do brakes on.
Moving on to things that we either have to replace or have replaced but didn’t work. We even included a few minutes of Mac talk in there somehow too.
Plus, news of the week from Motoringfile.
We were live for tonight and tomorrows show via uStream.tv. Thanks to everyone for coming by and playing along from home! So you know, we do the show every Thursday at 7PM PST. If you would like to join us, keep an eye out the morning of because a reminder will be posted.

Gabe does a rockin’ intro to get us started and we jump right into our 2 minutes of tech talk, reminding everyone that the great RSS reader NetNews Wire is now free. Then Todd and Gabe are putting Windows on their Macs.
In February, Gabe will be going on the BMW/MINI Press Junket for Rolls Royce, BMW //M3 and 1 Series as well as the Clubman. Watch MF in the coming weeks for more information about that, including a way that you can even help with the reviewing!
And the big part we cut out last week about warranty stuff. Remember, when in doubt, check with your SA. They will always steer you in the right directions.
Finishing with a few questions from our live audience. Don’t forget, we do this on Thursdays and the next time live it will get posted on MF and here the morning of.

Don’t forget, if there is something specific you would like Gabe to check out while he is on the big BMW press junkets later this month, leave a comment and he will see what he can do.

A bit of tech talk before going into our thoughts about the outcome of Street Tuner Challenge. That brings us to a question; Is it possible to tune an R56 to the same levels that you can an R53? Quite a bit of discussion ensues and we do go a bit long.
Then a reminder about Gabe going on the BMW Press Junket. Click here to leave a question for Gabe to think about as he drives the Clubman and 1 Series. Don’t bother with the questions about the Rolls Royce since he probably won’t get to drive one.
Watch for interviews coming up before AMVIV. I’m asking everyone now and hopefully we can get them in the show soon.

As mentioned a bazillion times already, Gabe went to the BMW Press Event in Monterey, California, last week. And this is his story, plus our questions.
A note to our affliates, this show does go long. Weighing in at an impressive 55:55, we let Gabe cover his entire week, pretty much start to finish. I think you’ll be surprised about his take on the automatic transmission in the Clubman, and his thoughts, overall, on the //M3.
Be sure to check back to WRR tomorrow. Robert in Toronto stopped by the Toronto Auto Show and snagged a bit of video of the Clubman in the MINI Booth!
We have also been tossing around a few ideas this week that we will be discussing on next weeks show. Listen up! We will, as always, be looking for your feedback.

Almost an hour of us talking about the Clubman. Pro’s and cons, Clubman vs. Clubman S. Then, of course, we had to talk about the JCW MINI. These are our thoughts and we would appreciate yours!
So much for the general automotive ‘cast this week. With so much stuff going on, we decided to push it off until next week.
If you are still on the fence about AMVIV, Palace Station has 30 rooms left at a new rate. It’s not the same as the original rate, but better than the rack rate for the weekend. Get on it quickly if you want to book your room. They won’t last!
Keep an eye out as well for Whiteroof.tv, the newest site Under the White Roof. That will be our video site and you can expect to see some things happening over there very soon, plus quite a bit from AMVIV. I hope to have it set-up in iTunes by the end of the week and will post the link that as soon as it’s done. But, for now, you can go over and subscribe or sign up for updates via email.

There might be a few rooms left on the group rate as well. And, check back tomorrow for the White Roof Radio AMVIV Event cast that I do with Michael and Patricia.

A bunch of you have already found Whiteroof.tv and have subscribed in iTunes. This caused wr.tv to jump to #20 in the automotive category in the first week of going live! Thank you! We are going to try to get something in there before AMVIV, so stay subscribed and wait for the magic to happen.

But not tonight. Tonight it’s just Todd & db, hanging out, talking about old time Saturday morning cartoons, me having the plague and taking meds that don’t work, and briefly on the price of gas. All that before getting into news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
Oh yea, WRR should look a little better for you iPhone/iPod touch users. wr.tv will be next, but not until later in the week.
Go back a post and check out the AMVIV Event Cast if you haven’t already, click over to AMVIV.com to see if there are any rooms left on the discounted room rate and to register. Don’t forget, if you want to attend the banquet, you must purchase your ticket before the event.

We could call this a general automotive show. Starting with some talking about St. Patrick’s day and on to our coffee of the day, since we recorded this on Saturday morning.
Moving on to the topic of the day. Navigation systems; in-car vs portable. All the information we could find, advantages of each, disadvantages of each and I’m pretty sure we disagreed on more than one item. This is a show I’m sure all y’all will enjoy!
Gabe will be leaving for holiday on Thursday, so we’ll be without him for 233 & 234, but we will have Robert Gold and Michael Babishkin to do news and a bit of AMVIV preshow. It should be a lot of fun! Maybe I can talk Todd into letting us go live. What do you think? You know what to do!
AMVIV starts next week and our schedule will be a little on the wacky side. Keep an eye on iTunes for audio and video posts (don’t forget to subscribe to the video), plus those posts will be showing up here and Motoringfile.

A quick recap of how Micheal got to be known as the ‘Free Porn King’ of Las Vegas and Robert is subscribing to WRR in Apple stores all over Canada.
Then, of course, news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
As we’ve been saying for the last bit of forever, the four of us will be at AMVIV later this week. If you are going, be sure to come by and say hi! Or keep an eye out here for audio, video, photos and words. We’ll have your covered!

Quick program update. We are all taking this week off (don’t worry, we’ll have something for you) and we will be sans Gabe until after MoTD.
Of course I had to pimp Whiteroof.tv. Go on and check it out if you haven’t already. There is quite a bit of video from AMVIV, which we recap tomorrow night.

Moving on, Todd and I take the time to recap AMVIV. We realized that we were busier than we have been before and were amazed at the number of people we didn’t get to talk to.
A good time was had by all we think. If you missed any of the video, check out Whiteroof.tv for all of that. There is more audio yet to come tomorrow, so keep an eye out for that as well.
Quick program note. No new Woofcast next week as we are taking the week off. Also, we will be without Gabe for the rest of the month. He should be returning after MoTD or shortly thereafter.

Starting off talking about all manner of things. Gabe’s absence, Speed Racer, John Force and George Barris. I do have a correction to make. The Original Batmobile was a Lincoln, not a Buick. I totally mis-spoke. And, yes, Todd is smokin’ serious crack for thinking the Mach 5 looks like a ‘Vette. There is an interview with Fireball Tim and George Barris, but the only link I could find was in iTunes. If you are interested, you can find it here.
You caught the official bit at the beginning, right? Keep us subscribed for all the updates as they happen, plus complete MTTS coverage from all 4 event sites! It’s going to be awesome and we hope to meet many of you at each event.
All that before, finally, getting to news of the week from Motoringfile.com. Rumor has it Gabe might actually be with us this week since his trip plans have changed and there is another rumor that I am trying to start that we will actually do a live show. Keep an eye on the sites later in the week for updates!

A bit of small car talk and history for you tonight. There was the Honda Civic, the CRX, and Chevy Sprint. Besides those, we cover a bit of history of the small cars in the US and how everyone seems to be switching back to the smaller cars.
Finishing up, we of course have to talk a little about MINIs and just how awesome our little car truly is. Finally, a few tire tips to help you get better mileage.
And some talk about a few podcasts that we really like. Check the link on the side for the complete list. There are some great shows there, and all of them are fans of the show.
Oh yea, Crossroads was really a movie. No foolin’.
Finally, any interest in going on a cruise with a bunch of other MINI people and Whiteroofradio? Let us know below. If there is enough interest, we’ll pursue it further.

Then we spent some time answering questions from our live audience. Again, another reason why you don’t want to miss us live. So, we are going to give you another chance.
We will be recording this coming Saturday at 8am PST/ 10am CST / 11am EST / 4pm (I think) GMT. More details will follow later in the week. Keep an eye on the sites toward the end of the week for more details.

Another live show. Yes, that’s two in a row. If you missed it, don’t worry. We recorded this one Saturday morning instead of Thursday night. Don’t worry, we’ve got this down fairly well (even did video this last time) so there is a better than average chance that we will be doing it more often.
This one, news of the week as usual from Motoringfile.com. Something we brought up in conjuction with the server move is comment moderation. If you leave a comment and it doesn’t show up for about an hour or so, use the contact form over at MF and someone will fish it out for you. Sometimes the spam queue gets a bit rambuctious.
And, things might look a bit strange over at WRR for a few days. It did NOT affect any of the shows, just the appearance of the site. Don’t worry, normal service shall resume shortly.

Another from our live outing last Saturday. Before getting into talking about MPG and the JCW MINI we had a little Cinco de Mayo Celebration. It was fun if you missed it.
If you did miss the live outing because I forgot to post it the day before, you could always follow me on Twitter. I post that kind of thing there all the time.
Also, some requests out the WRR Audience. Looking for someone to run the WRR MySpace Page and, if you fancy yourself a writer and would like to write a review of a product that you have used to share with the MF audience, let us know.
MTTS is right around the corner! We’ll be bringing you full coverage from all of the events as well as the road trip from Miami to Boston! And, WRR turns 3 during the LA stop, so if you are around, come find us to help celebrate!

Yes, you heard me correctly. This was take 2. The live audience actually got to listen to us record this episode, in full length, twice. It worked out because it turned out to be a better show.
Tonight we spend some time talking about Hypermiling. Links? Oh, you betcha.
There is the Hypermiling.com site. My suggestions and techniques came from this page.
And there is this article at Edmunds which has a few more extreme examples. Todd was working from this.
Even more good techniques can be found here too. The things we do to save gas.
Of course, you could always use public transportation, ride a bike or walk. But where’s the challenge there?
If you are going to do your own math to compute your MPG, here is the math again, in case you missed it.
Total miles driven / total gallons used = MPG

Last week was Todd, this week was me. Sorry for the delay in getting the show into the feed!
I say it’s Woof 247, but really, it’s not. With MTTS right around the corner, and this being Memorial Day weekend in the US, we decided to take the week off. Not to worry, I pulled a couple of great shows out of the archives for you. Tonight, let’s go back to 06/05/06 for Woof 66 where we learn, among other things, that Gabe can’t whistle. Full notes below.
We will be back next week to get warmed up for MTTS, plus we have another interview scheduled with Gina Koutrous from MINIUSA that will be going up later this week or the first part of next.
Woofcast 66
Server issues…geek stuff…blah blah blah…geek stuff…blah blah blah. Anyway, there were issues most of yesterday that didn’t get corrected until early this morning.
We do actually cover the news of the week and then some, but first…
Gabe can’t whistle? But he can snap like a MoFo! db rants on traffic and waking up early. Todd has nothin’ but a pair of fuzzy slippers and a robe and some cool special effects. Oh yea, Gabe drops a joke bomb.
Then we cover news of the week. Want to see what made db giggle? Check it. Oh yea, don’t forget to check out the Stracco interview if you haven’t already.

Again with the re-runs? Yep, I am afraid so. Don’t worry, I picked a great show for you tonight. Woofcast #141. Worth a re-listen if only to hear Gabe attempt an intro. It’s truly awesome.
Don’t worry, we’ll be back next week just like you like. We only need a short break!
Woofcast #141 Show Notes
To start with, db just didn’t want to do the intro tonight. You benefit. Trust me.
Did you see this? Poor guy.
db is soooo close to 150K miles it’s not even funny.
Gabe’s NCAA picks, if you like that kind of thing.
If you get the chance, check out MINI2.co.za.
Longest MINI Convoy attempt if you like that kind of thing. Oh yea, you kinda have to be in the UK for it too. Todd thinks he’s already beat that number, but it wasn’t legit with the Guinness people.
Plus a little bit of news for the week.

Todd and myself take a quite romp through the last two weeks news from Motoringfile without Gabe since he was otherwise unavailable.
Watch for a new badge coming soon. Details in the show.
Go back and catch our last interview with Gina from MINIUSA if you missed it. It should also be in the feed now. Sorry about that.
Also, most of the MTTS details have been posted including route information for the run from Miami to Boston, including hotel suggestions. All of the bands have been announced as well. You can get all of this information, plus sign up for updates via email or subscribe via RSS at minitakesthestates.com. While you are there, take a minute to 2 to register for the event you are going to attend.
Tomorrow Todd talks hypermiling with his 3 Series Wagon vs. his ’03 R53. And we rant a little. A show not to be missed!

We start off with some rambling, some MTTS stuff and a reminder that we do accept, quite gladly in fact, beverages of any type.
Todd does go through the hypermiling techniques that he is using to get close to 25mpg out of his 3 Series Wagon in the city. It helps that he is battling with his wife, who is getting 32mpg out of an ’03 R53! I still have him beat with my 30mpg in the city, but I didn’t want to rub it in.
MTTS is almost here! We are going to be everywhere with our recorders, cameras and laptops posting all kinds of things here and at MF. But, if you want to make sure you get all of it when it happens, here are a few other places to stalk db follow along.
I’ll be posting all of my pictures at Flickr. Videos will be going into the feed at WR.tv and on the web at Viddler. And short updates via Twitter or FriendFeed should Twitter go down. Check the sidebar at my motoring blog for even more ways to follow along.
If you are close to any of the stops along the Miami to Boston Rally, let us know! We would like to do something at every stop. And, they do say the more the merrier!

We are not 100% sure if Gabe still has a MINI or listens to the show. We are 100% sure he is busier than a one legged man at a pie eating contest, so we are cutting him very huge amounts of slack.

About the hydrogen pumps in Southern California, check out this Gizmodo article. We spend a bit of time talking about this and what we think the next big thing is actually going to be.
We will be at MTTS at the end of the week. Stay tuned in here, MF and WR.tv for all the action. Complete details for keeping track of everything while we are there and on the road will be coming in another day or two.

See that R/C car up there? Ridemakerz are only making a limited number of them, and they will only be available at the last 2 MTTS events!
Speaking of limited number, Todd is also selling a very limited edition Motoringbadge that is also only available on-site at MTTS. If you want one, you’d better find him early ’cause they go quick!

A bit of random chat before we get started, talking about tires and brakes. We are looking for those among us that have experienced tire pressure loss in run flats after sitting for a week or more. Todd’s MINI had 4 flat tires after MTTS and it just sat. Since he boosted them, he hasn’t experienced any loss at all.
Watch for us to get guys from Continental on the show soon. We had some great discussions with them at MTTS.
But not this week. For this week, it’s news of the week from Motoringfile.com.
Don’t forget to register for MTTS if you are going. At the very least, you check out the updates that were posted during the first 2.
If you are looking for the brake tool at Harbor Freight, you can find it here. I don’t know if it works, but for $4.00, it might be worth trying. They also have an air-powered unit that you can find here, if that’s how you roll.
Check back tomorrow when we talk about the cool fuel-saving features that we don’t get in the US.

Now that MTTS is finished, be prepared for us to focus our energy on MINI United 2009, happening in England. If you don’t have a passport, now is a great time to get that taken care of. And, as more details become available, we will have them first!

Among the things we talk about is this Audi R8 that is beyond awesome. You should follow that link and check it out.
Besides Todd wanting an R8, we also talk a short bit about the upcoming Chevorlet Volt.
Todd tried out the Dynolicious iPhone App. His GP is putting out a whopping 13hp! Wooooooo! More testing will follow, don’t you worry. Have you tested it? What did you think? Leave a note or comment on Facebook page.
We finish by talking JCW. One of my favorite topics. Actually, we started talking about my experience with the Factory JCW car at MTTS and goes from there.
If you want to get any of the photos from MTTS that were taken by the photographers that were there, do yourself a favor by clicking over to mttsphotos.com. If you are looking for all of our MTTS coverage because you missed any of it, you can find it here.

Joined again by Chad Miller from Detroit Tuned. If you are in the greater Detroit area and looking for an independant shop to work on your MINI, check ‘em out. And if you are still suffering from the stuck air bag light, check with your dealer. Chad thinks they extended that warranty again, so it’s worth checking out.
We talk about Todd’s experience with the new iPhone/iPod touch app Dynolicious which told him his GP has gone from 13hp to 590hp. In fairness, he hasn’t been able to fully test it yet. Of course, that led to us talking about dynos in general and what kind of tuning Chad has been doing to the R56.
Otherwise, a little sales talk, a little dealer talk, Todd’s Honda Del Sol (again), and parts stock, among other things.
As I mentioned during last nights show and tonight, I have started a new show with Fireball Tim called The Hollywood Car Show where we talk about upcoming movies, cool cars in movies and in television. I think it’s a lot of fun and think you might like it too. Find it at thehollywoodcarshow.com.
Contest? Been a while since we did one of those. Remember, you have to leave a comment in the show notes at WRR to be able to play along. Oh, and you have to listen to the show to see what it is. Winner gets a free WRR T-Shirt! If you work at a MINI dealer in any way shape or form, you can’t play along. Sorry.

The three of us back again for a Monday night and off to a silly start. That’s what happens when we are drinking coffee during the show.
We spend some time talking about the comparison between VW and MINI, then Gabe and Todd go off on a JCW tangent. At least I think they did since my eyes pretty much glazed over as soon as soon as they started. Todd did talk about the $40k Clubman again. As soon as Todd gets back from Vegas I will get him to post a picture.
Play along at home. If you are spending $40K on a car, what else could you buy besides a JCW Clubman, new or used?
Thanks again to everyone that has left us the most recent reviews on our iTunes page! We really appreciate it. Of course, if you have something nice to say, feel free to post away!

The three of us going into some great detail about the R60 concept with a new format that worked very very well. It did result in a longer-than-normal show, but for this topic, I think it worked fantastic and you should enjoy it.

Wow! A full crew? Really? That is correct ladies and gents, Gabe, Todd, Michael and myself talking about MINI stuff for you on a Monday night, like we like to do.
We start with news from MF, including spending a fair amount of time on Gabe’s review of the JCW car and my MINI turning 200K miles. Plus some tips as well as a few things you might want to watch out for as your MINI gets up in miles.
Before I go further, none of us doing anything other than recycle any of the fluids that come out of our cars. We always dispose of them properly. We were just goofin’.
Do you use Twitter? If you do, you should friend up Todd, Gabe, Michael and myself.
Theme song for today’s show is Understood by your Dad by Brad Sucks. Good stuff.
Don’t forget the new voicemail line either, at 206-202-3252. Call in, say something funny (be sure to also say The World Famous White Roof Radio too!) and we might use it in the show just like you will here in this episode. Oh yea, you can also use it for feedback or to ask a question.

Final show for 2008. We manage a full crew and everything. And, of course, we end up with a crappy connection. So, apologies around for that extra hiss in this shows recording.
We covered news of the week from Motoringfile.com as usual. It was nice to have Gabe with us tonight and he added quite a bit, as he usually does.
Then a bit of recap of the year that was WRR/MF. We did some really cool stuff this year! If you missed any of it, you can go back and check the MTTS and AMVIV. It doesn’t seem like much, but remember MTTS did stretch over a combined time span of almost 2 weeks!
We hope everyone has a great holiday. We’ll be back next year with more cool stuff and hopefully better sound. One of the things coming back next year will be the event cast, so make sure to pass the word along to your clubs and listen for details after the first of the year.
