White Roof Radio – The MINI Cooper Podcast

MINI Cooper Podcasting with db, Todd, Gabe, Chad & Brian

Woofcast #181

Starting off talking about the weather. I’m roasting in SoCal while Gabe and Todd are enjoying nice weather. Of course, we had to talk about A/C performance while we were at it. Remember, my A/C has been track tested to 11.5 second quarter mile.

AMVIV 5 IS A GO! Info is posted on NAM and Agro tells me he will be updating amviv.com very soon. Oh yea, we have no idea what’s happening for MTTS in ’08. Just keep it tuned to WRR and Motoringfile for details when they come in.

If you don’t have speedTV, now would be a good time to start planning that so you can catch the next Street Tuner Challenge coming up in October. I should be heading up to the shop next week to get an update from Tim and the boys.

Remember, the best way to get the Woofcast is to subscribe! Click the subscribe link at the top of the page for complete directions.

Plus, news of the week.

Check back tomorrow for some great info about Gabe’s JCW Suspension on the track. Plus, our thing to check for the week.

  1. Newton Meters (NM) are simply the metric units of torque and are analougous to Ft-Lbs with the proper conversion factor. Newtons are a unit of force. 1 Newton of force will accelerate a Kg object at the rate of 1M/sec/sec. Meters (M) of course are a unit of length.

    Here is the short conversion to Newton Meters. 1NM=0.737FtLbs.

    Now here is the long conversion:

    Start with 1NM and multiply by 1 (each item in paranthesis resolves to 1. ie. 1M=3.281Ft thus 3.281ft/1M=1)

    1NM*(3.281 ft/M) * (1Kg*M/sec/sec/N) * (3.281ft/M) * (2.205lbs-mass/Kg) * (1lbs-Force/G*lbs-mass) * 1G/32.2Ft/sec/sec)=1*3.281*3.281*2.205/32.2*N*M*M*Ft*Ft*Kg*lbs-mass*lbs-force*G*sec*sec/(N*M*M*Ft*Kg*lbs-mass*G*sec*sec)=0.737Ft*lbs-force

  2. The comment system interpreted the asterixes in the comment above as formatting commands. Here is the coversion again, properly written (I hope).

    1NM(3.281 ft/M) * (1KgM/sec/sec/N) * (3.281ft/M) * (2.205lbs-mass/Kg) * (1lbs-Force/G * lbs-mass) * 1G/32.2Ft/sec/sec)=1 * 3.281 * 3.281 * 2.205 / 32.2 * N * M * M * Ft * Ft * Kg * lbs-mass * lbs-force * G * sec * sec /(N * M * M * Ft * Kg * lbs-mass * G * sec * sec)=0.737Ftlbs-force
