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!
Woofcast #253, again
For those of you that got episode 220 in your reader/iTunes, here it is, corrected.
News of the week from Motoringfile.com, but since it was mostly MTTS related, we recapped the week instead.
We had a great week and you’ve seen most of it. To recap, we posted over 700 photos, over an hour of video and almost 2 hour of audio! Thanks everyone for checking it out or coming by to say during the event. It was great to meet you all!
Check back tomorrow for the JCW show. You aren’t going to want to miss it!
MTTS 2008: The road trip and Boston
Some of you have asked about the MINI we drove. We had an Astro Black R56 S with body colored roof, sunroof and automatic transmission. Yes, we know we are Whiteroofradio. I think someone at MINI USA was having a little bit of fun with us.
This is the last of the audio and there is quite a bit of it. I still have more coming in the shape of video and photos, so you can watch for those later today.
And, if you are wanting to go to either of the remaining MTTS events (like I know you are), be sure to take a minute and register. You can subscribe while you are there and get all of the updates MINIUSA was posting as well.

MF Exclusive: Factory JCW (The Burble is Back!)
Reprinted from Motoringfile to get it into the feed.
Exclusive! The Factory JCW will be getting the burble exhaust sound back as was on late R53 models. This is great news and you can see and hear for yourself at your local dealer starting July 14.
If you have the chance to test drive the MINI JCW you must take the opportunity but if you are a fan of the JCW you better get your order in now. Starting July 14 MINI will begin delivering the MINI JCW to U.S. dealers for some eager early adopters. The MINI JCW will be making appearances at the remaining MTTS events in Chicago and LA in late July and early August.
MTTS Update: Monday
In Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC, talking to MINI Owners including our friend Murray who we actually convinced to join us at one more MTTS event!
Oh yea, and Tony the Peanut Man! Awe. Some. If you don’t know you’d better ax somebody!
The journey continues onward to Boston. Watch for more stuff coming.

MTTS Interview: Rauno Aaltonen
Little did Rauno know, but Todd kept the recorder running a little longer than the actual interview, so we also got him talking about traction and how it applies to the MINI. He is brilliant!
By the way, you have registered, right? If you are planning to attend MTTS Boston, Chicago or LA, make sure you do that now!

MTTS Day 2 from Miami
So far so good. Our internet connectivity has been lacking this week, which is why the delay.
We have even more audio coming, including some time with Rauno Aaltonen that you are going to love!
