B Squad Hotrod: 4 guys building cars and hot rods

Join the four amateurs: Steve (Woodchuck), Brad (Hollywood), Colt (Train) and Nick (Lefty) here at B Squad Hotrod. We're just a bunch of amateurs getting to the meat and bolts of restoring and repairing real cars for our enjoyment. And hopefully for your education and enjoyment. Because educating us...that's impossible.

Episode 0026 - Suspension and Motorcycles

Motorcycles, Feedback and Suspension.  All very Punny.  We start with an off topic section that was actually recorded in the middle of the episode.  But it is about motorcycles so how can we go wrong?  We have an e-mail from a Hot Rod Hero in New Zealand and then on to suspension.   It's a bumpy ride, but it should put a bouncy in your step.

Episode 0023: Winging it

Have you ever winged a repair?  B Squad discusses winging it and also the B squad moment of the week - "300 feet of chain."

We also have a mountain of email from all of you Hot Rod Heroes!  Thank you.  Our podcast has reached world wide stature.  "We're kinda a big deal."  Okay we're not a big deal but we do feel like real podcasters.

No product this week.  It's been a long winter with forced cryostasis of the projects.

[Bonus] B-Squad Bonus Episode 1

This is a Bonus Episode.  We are talking about something other than cars.  Please let us know if you like it, hate it or otherwise don't care.

In classic Orange Cone Re-Route Fashion Lefty takes us in to uncharted territory by asking about our favorite firearms.  We put aside cars in this bonus episode and talk about other things that are on the boys of B-Squad's minds.

Except for the part about turning Lefty's Hudson into a show piece with hardware in the back.

Episode 0018 - Brakes by B Squad

Lefty retells skidding off the road and gets a score of 6.3 from the judges.  Then we all jump into the brake system.  Wondering off topic no less than 3 times(and probably more).  CAUTION!  there is an unpleasant hissing in this episode.  See the show links below.

Episode 0014 - Car Systems and Parts 101

Train Hollywood and Woodchuck stumble through all the parts of a car without Lefty.  This will be a base for future episode in which we get into these topics in detail. 

 

While this is probably review for many of you Hot Rod Heroes out there, we thought it important to share for those who don't know and review for us.

Because B Squad can hardly remember where they were supposed to be instead of working on the car in the garage.
