Podcast: Episode 89 – The Future of Hot Rodding


Today we dive into some new car chatter. One of the main topics is the subject of the future of hot rodding, and how I believe it will be about electric cars, coding, and drive-by-wire adjustments.

Additionally, there’s news of a purchase for the Hooniverse family. A new project car is arriving, and you can learn more about it by listening in.

    I like the concept of "playlists" for your steering feedback and so on. That's a fun concept. It's also why throttle-by-wire and cable shifters make sense, even if it took a long time to make either one of those very good.

    But in the early stages of this kind of hotrodding, I wouldn't expect much fidelity. Look where synthesizers started out. You could always tell when it wasn't the real thing, but eventually, sound engineers figured out how to do it better. Ultimately it would take someone super smart with a lot of time to recreate an authentic "Miura steering" or whatever you might desire, but yeah, perhaps, someday, this will all be wirelessly uploadable and customizable in that way.

    Confession time – I just finished binging the full run of Gilmore Girls with my wife (side note, someone involved with the show must've been a low-level gearhead, there were a handful of neat cars used, and a bit of verbal sparring that invoked Lucas Electrics). So, thanks to one of the main characters driving a '68 C10. Like your Friday Night Lighs inspiration, that drove me to look at old pickups on Auto Trader. Obviously though, I was not able to follow through like you.
