64: LegUp Landin Gear with Pete Giarrusso and Fun with Race Car Audio

In this exciting episode the guys have a special guest, cover some listener feedback, and have some fun with race car audio to support Rich's comment about the sound of the Ford GT race car.  The guys also welcome Steve and Tytis as two new members to the Riders of Loud Pipes! and thank them for their support.

Also, it's contest time, see bottom of this post for details

LegUp Landin Gear

  • The guys sit down and chat with Pete Giarrusso from Pete G's Chopper Design Services

  • Interview partly inspired by listener feedback.  Thomas writes that he was having trouble holding up his Electra Glide at low speeds and while he is considering a trike, was looking for alternatives.  He is also looking at Spyder's after hearing of Jon's enjoyment of his RSS.

U-Turn:

  • Feedback from Walter that we started to talk about IMSA.  He also mentioned that this could be the last year of Corvettes and that Cadillac would be entering next year on as new platform for GM.  We have found some non-official information around Cadillac is going Prototype racing in 2017, but no information on the Corvette C7.R going anywhere.  Check here for some 2017 silly season update for IMSA racing.
