Another busy week in a string of busy weeks under the White Roof. Normal service should resume this week. Patience, as always, is greatly appreciated.

Strap in, sit down and shut up! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve all been able to get together and do a show, and we do that right here. We have some Dragon interviews, MINI United recaps, GP talk and just 4 guys sitting around talking about MINI Cooper stuff. Normal service has resumed. Next stop, AMVIV!

Chad recaps The Dragon, I recap a day on the track with a 292k mile R50 with a newly installed 6-speed transmission and Gabe joins us to add a lot to the conversation and lead us in further F56 discussion. No Todd this week as he was pulled away to wrap a helicopter or something. Another great show I think you will like!

Going old school this week. Todd and Gabe join me to talk about MINI Coopers, like we like to do. And adult beverages. And Lasik. After we were done catching up, we were back on MINI with news from Motoringfile, the 6 speed gear box in my car and a reminder about MINI Takes the States 2014.

No coupon code for the sponsors this month. Make it the month you really tell them thanks for supporting us by paying full price!

We’ll then post it on our website so that other MOTORISTS can stay informed. Please note that all submissions are subject to review and editing. Once approved, they will be listed on the MTTS Web site under the ‘Rally’ page within the ‘Dealer & Club’ tab, in chronological order.

Todd and I talking about his new vehicle, news from and the F56. I have had a brief amount of time in the driver seat of both the F56 Cooper (with manual transmission) and the F56 Cooper S (with automatic transmission). Also, a very interesting list of current motor vehicle recalls that you can check out at Ending with Gabe’s great interview with David Duncan, Vice President MINI of the Americas.

Wish everyone at MINIs on the Dragon this week and safe a fun-filled week! Take some twisties for us, and don’t forget to stop and see Chad!

F56 Mini Cooper S 3/4 Front oben

Sadly, we missed Gin and Tonic day last week, and I have something to say about that. Gabe posted his F56 Cooper review on Motoringfile last week and we talk a little bit more about the F56. Plus, the Final Test Test Drive videos are live, check them all out at, they are all pretty awesome.

If you are interested in joining the White Roof Radio road crew during MTTS, shoot us an email at the usual place. I’m going to be contacting you guys and gals later this week!

After a failed attempt at a live show, can you believe Skype was able to save the day? Oh boy did it! Todd, Chad and I still managed to mope our way through a show for you, talkin’ about MINI stuff, like we like to do. Tons of news from tonight, Todd took an F56 apart with his teeth and we were joined by Mr. Gabe Bridger. We even talked quite a bit about the issues with the F56 Cooper and what MINIUSA is doing about it.

Stick around for next week. I’ve finally had the chance to check out the F56 (look, not drive) and you know we’ll be talking more about it!
