  • 086: Forget Billet for a Second… What’s With Aftermarket Cast Blocks?
    Over the last year, we’ve seen a handful of well-respected manufacturers teasing something brand new that pushes against the idea that billet is the only way to go — aftermarket high-performance cast blocks and heads. On this episode, we have Platinum Racing Products’ Herman Urriola, one of the figures driving this new development, to talk us through the design, manufacture, and use cases for aftermarket cast engines and much more.  Use “PLATINUM50” for 50% off our HPA Engine Building Fundamentals course here: https://hpcdmy.co/enginebuildPlatinum Racing Products is well known worldwide thanks to its ultra-high quality parts for a range of high-performance engines that deftly walk the fine line between form and function.Billet rocker covers, crank trigger kits, fuel rails, RB sump adapters, and much more are PRP’s bread and butter, but recently we’ve seen teases of an ambitious new product from the Australian company — an aftermarket cast aluminium RB26 block and head that doesn’t just reproduce the factory item but improves on it in numerous ways.In this conversation, we dive pretty deep into Herman’s reasoning behind putting the huge amounts of time and money required into this new product and we touch on who it’s for, why it’s better than billet in a lot of situations, and why an enthusiast would want one in the first place. Herman also gives us insight into his thriving business and details some of the mistakes he’s made, as well as what he considers the key to operating a successful aftermarket parts business. A large part of the Platinum Racing Products process involves hundreds of hours of market research, R&D, design, CNC manufacturing, and testing — Herman gives us a really interesting look at what can be quite a high-stakes way of doing business. After all, it can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to take one new part from idea to product on the shelf. This is going to be a great listen for anyone interested in part development, CAD, CNC manufacturing, engine building, or business development in the aftermarket industry.Follow Platinum Racing Products here: IG: @platinumracingproductsFB: Platinum Racing ProductsYT: PRP - Platinum Racing ProductsWWW: platinumracingproducts.com Don’t forget, use “PLATINUM50” for 50% off our HPA Engine Building Fundamentals course here: https://hpcdmy.co/enginebuild

  • Field Report: Don't Waste Money On The Wrong Dampers/Shocks.
    What is the most common mistake we make when learning how to set up our dampers and which ones we should buy?Use ‘PODCAST75’ for $75 off your first HPA course here: https://hpcdmy.co/hpa-tuned-inFrank Vasquez from KW Suspension answers these questions and more around high and low-speed compressions and rebound, driver feedback and why buying the most expensive dampers might be a waste of money.

  • 085: Doing a Track Day Right.
    Got a modified road car and are interested in seeing what it’s capable of on the track? On this episode of Tuned In, Andre Nader from DNA Autosport joins us to give some guidance on all things track day setup and preparation. Use “DNAAUTOSPORT50” for 50% off our HPA Motorsport Wheel Alignment course here: https://hpcdmy.co/alignmentbAlthough Andre’s first love was of the motorbike persuasion, a degree in mechanical engineering, a thesis on race car aerodynamics, and a job at Bilstein Suspension soon had him veering off towards motorsport on four wheels. After spending a good while working in the suspension industry, Andre formed DNA AutoSport to support Sydney-based track enthusiasts and pro racers four years ago.In this episode, we first jump into all things track day preparation. Andre talks us through all the things anyone who is heading to a track day — whether it's their first or their fiftieth — should be getting sorted in prior to the weekend. This means tyre choices and pressures, brakes, wheel alignments, and much more. Andre also discusses some common mistakes that often he sees newbies (and occasionally not-so-newbies) making — covering everything from a lack of preparation, backwards thinking when it comes to setup changes, and wasted money on unnecessary modifications.Lastly, the conversation turns to one of DNA AutoSport’s specialities — TracTive Suspension electronic dampers. Andre breaks down how these work, what’s involved in setting them up and tuning them, as well as the sort of improvements a driver should expect once they’re ready to go.With some great info on drag racing suspension setup, anti-roll bar tuning and much more, this is an excellent listen if you’re looking to boost your handling and car setup knowledge.Follow DNA Autosport here: IG: @dnaautosportFB: DNA AutoSportWWW: dnaautosport.com.auDon’t forget, use “DNAAUTOSPORT50” for 50% off our HPA Motorsport Wheel Alignment course here: https://hpcdmy.co/alignmentb

  • Field Report: Getting 1200HP To The Ground | R35 GTR Wheel Alignment.
    @LYFEmotorsport and their 1200HP R35 GTR are no strangers to Time Attack or track records having reset their own R35 record at the 2019 WTAC (when this was filmed), BUT, it takes a lot more than just bolting a bunch of parts together and going ‘full send’ to achieve these results as Cole Powelson explains in relation to wheel alignments.Use ‘PODCAST75’ for $75 off your first HPA course here: https://hpcdmy.co/hpa-tuned-inThe 4L Nissan VR38 powered and MoTeC-controlled car runs CCW 18*12.5 one-piece wheels which are wrapped in controlled Yokohama Advan tyres. To get the most out of the package, the team rely on data from the car via tyre temperatures, shock potentiometers above the Ohlins TTX dampers, and driver feedback to make logical changes. This attention to detail is part and parcel when it comes to ensuring that the tyre temperatures are even across their widths and that the car has the maximum contact patch possible where required on track.Cole explains why Infrared sensors are great for live data, and why teams will still physically check temperatures under the tyre surface as quickly as possible when the car hits the pits after a hot lap. When adjustments need to be made, a simple string alignment kit and ruler are used due to their simplicity, ease of transport and most importantly their accurate and repeatable results.At this event, Cole reset the team's own R35 GTR record but fell just short of the 1-29 that they really wanted to hit with a best time of 1-30.0230, so close! The car was doing dual duties due to a rule change this year and saw Rob ‘Chairslayer’ Parson’s WTAC debut with an impressive 1-34.1840.Want to learn how to do your own wheel alignments at home?

  • 084: Going From Inductive Ignition to CDI and Gaining 500hp.
    Bolting a 4000+hp twin turbo V8-powered drag car onto a dyno and pushing it to its limits isn’t for the faint of heart, but it’s just another day in the office for this week’s guest, Anderson Dick of FuelTech USA.Use “FUELTECH100” for $100 off our HPA Tuning Starter package here: https://hpcdmy.co/starterbFounding FuelTech 20 years ago as an electrical engineering student in Brazil, Anderson started from absolute scratch with very little support and no other ECU products on hand to even take inspiration from.The problem, as Anderson explains in this episode, was that extremely strict import regulations put the Brazillian motorsport scene a good couple of decades behind the rest of the world — so much so that enthusiasts were pulling EFI systems off cars and fitting carburettors in order to run forced induction. If that sounds backwards to you, Anderson doesn’t disagree, and took it upon himself to create what was then a very simple programmable EFI computer to try and bring his country into the 21st century. Two decades later and FuelTech is a leader in the EFI management space, especially when it comes to extremely high horsepower drag applications. So, after Anderson talks us through the very early days of his career and the unique challenges he came up against, the conversation naturally moves to tuning big power cars. Petrol vs Ethanol vs Methanol tuning, Inductive vs CDI ignition systems, reading spark plugs, and much, much is covered in this fascinating episode. If you want to pick up some new tuning knowledge from one of the best in the industry (we certainly did), this is one episode you won’t want to miss.
