White Roof Radio – The MINI Cooper Podcast

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

Woofcast #27

Update – There was a problem with the feed that I have corrected. If your podcatcher did not automagically grab #27, please try again. If you use iTunes, you can update now and woof27 will appear. Sorry for the inconvenience! -db

Last one of the year! And we go out with some items that are for sure going to make you want to fire up your email client!

-It’s too warm in SoCal for Christmas
-Ice rattles? oddly, db was quiet during that conversation
-Gabe can’t figure out the cheese phone.
-Drive through gas stations sell beer in WI, just like in CA.
-Drive through liquor stores are wrong. If you are too lazy to get out of your car for booze, then stay home.
-Sonic to start feeding their guests?
-Mad props for the PT and HHR?
-C’mon now, don’t forget the WRR Listener Map, take the survey or get a decal
-Add a pic to your frappr. [email protected] if you need help with that.
-Big thanks to our non-us listeners…Thanks!
-Our take on MC2 magazine. Well, Todd and Gabe’s anyway since db doesn’t have his copy yet.
-Robert in Canada sends in an audio question! What mods can you do to a JCW
-The big news stories of the week

We have decals! WRR Decal
$3 each or 2 for $5. 3 5/8″ round high quality cut vinyl. Help support WhiteRoofRadio!

Quick thanks to everyone who has linked us from their blogs, club sites, message board signatures. With your help, we have had well over 25K downloads since we started here at WRR. Couldn’t have done it without you!

Have a great holiday and safe new years gang!

  1. Having a problem downloading show 27. Everytime I click the link (zipped or otherwise) it says no posts match my criteria?

  2. Fixed the link. Capital letters are a pain!

    Db will have to change the zip file or the link name. If you need the zipped file before he fixes it, just caitalize the “W”.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and Merry Christmas.

  3. I’m not so sure about the lightweight crank pulley. It seems to me that that crank damper serves a purpose. I’d like to see a more thorough engineering analysis of this particular problem. 🙂

  4. Since it was mentioned, I just wanted to share the potentially shocking weights of the MINI wheels and tires I’ve owned.

    R81 Stock MINI Cooper 15″ wheels and non-runflat tires (175/65R15 w/ Continental Conti Sport tires)
    28 lbs. per corner

    R84 Stock MINI Cooper S 16″ wheels and runflat tires (195/55R16 w/ Dunlop SP Sport 5000A DSST tires)
    40 lbs. per corner

    Kosei K1 16″ wheels w/ Bridgestone RE750 tires (205/50R16)
    37 lbs. per corner

    I love the grip of the Bridgestones, but the straight line acceleration of stock 15’s is by far the best of the bunch. It was night and day between the 16″ runflats and the 15″ non-runflats, so I can only imagine the difference if you are currently running around with some S-lites…probably like adding 20hp to the car.
