The Cammed & Tubbed Podcast: Episode 105 – Dry EV-ing With Ian Sutton

This week Cam, Tub, and Jason are joined by Mr. Ian Sutton, who is an engineer on the SparkCharge project. SparkCharge is working to develop a portable solution to help alleviate the range anxiety people always talk about in regards to pure EVs. It’s a really interesting project, and worth listening to. Of the 105 episodes we have recorded, this one might be my favorite. I don’t even really consider myself an EV enthusiast, but the conversation was good, and it seemed like everything flowed really well, with EVs being the over-arching theme. Give it a listen and tell me if I’m right.
This episode’s topics include: Two of the Three D’s, Jason drove an EV converted Ferrari, Jason put down a deposit on a Tesla, Brad has a strange idea for a cool electric-hybrid project (tell me how stupid it is in the comments), Jason is going to drive the new Ford GT350, Speaking of Mustangs, Cam almost died in his, Brad’s going on a road trip, and Ian talks about his EV battery project (We’ve dubbed it the ‘futuristic jerry can’). BEST ONE YET! GO LISTEN!

    But really, adding to the issues already mentioned, wouldn’t adding a hybrid system to your Boxster add a bunch of unnecessary weight and ruin the handling? And wouldn’t the battery eat up your already limited luggage and/or passenger space?

      Limited? Boxster has more trunk space than most cars. The frunk is huge. I rarely use more space than the rear trunk offers.
      Yes to most of everything else you said.

    Regarding the Malibu (and other weird die-cast cars), I was the kid who was way more into Majorettes than Hot Wheels (Matchbox were decent too). There’s a reasonable chance I own multiple 1:64 Caravans (I’m certain I have a 3rd gen, and I had a 1rst gen (with sliding door!), but may have lost it).
