The Gearhead Project
Episode 9

TGP S01E09 | Robert Fuge, Humming Aero keeps humming along

Brian Driggs published on

Recorded live, on location, at Humming Aero world headquarters in Phoenix, Arizona, while the kids were asleep, this is the Gearhead Project.

Why do some gearheads like us start side hustling? How do those side hustles evolve over time? And what has your documented body of gearhead work done for you lately? These are some of the things we’re talking about tonight on episode 9 of the The Gearhead Project.

My guest tonight is Robert Fuge. He’s a mechanical engineer by day, and an automotive performance engineer by night. Where some of us might reach for the duct tape and bailing wire, Rob fires up SolidWorks and designs lasting solutions (that often look dope).

When we were introduced, he had a Miata. Now he’s got a Trooper. Humming Aero, his side hustle, has changed a bit over the years, too. Tonight we’re going to explore why and how.  

Are you ready for the next level? Let’s do this.

Welcome to The Gearhead Project.
