The Smoking Tire
Episode 301

Aaron Gold and Brian Makse

Zack Klapman published on

Aaron Gold -one of our funniest and most frequent guests- returns, and he brought a friend, automotive YouTuber Brian Makse.  V12 vs V8s, spool valves, crashing, forbidden cars; this episode has it all. 

Aaron has been in this business for decades, and always has an interesting take on a car, a few strange interests (usually featuring diesel) and a bevy of odd voices to help paint a picture. Brian has been talking about cars on YouTube for 4 years, and tested a mess of performance cars. The guys start off the show comparing new Astons to new Bentleys, leading to a debate of V8s vs V12s. Later in the show Brian talks about suspension damping and spool valves, the Chevrolet ZR2, forbidden cars, the 25 year ban, near-misses in racing, and a lot more. 


This show is available as a video!
