MINI Cooper JCW Soundkit Audio Review
March 8, 2006
Duration: 6:22

Todd got a little bit of seat time behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper with the JCW Sound kit.
We used to have some great photos of this kit, but they were lost to the great server outage of aught six.
If you are wondering what this sounds like, or what a modded MINI Cooper sounds like, this is your chance. Todd did an awesome job and I think you should all enjoy it!

Robert’s Soundseeing Tour #12
September 27, 2006
Duration: 16:51

Robert’s back!. He took a break during MTTS to catch up on his NASCAR races and he returns with a MINI full of his cousins on a rainy night in the ‘hood.
They attack a 40kmp/h onramp at close to 100kmp/h! TWICE! And the lads proceede to take us to task over the Horseshoe wheels and Liquid Yellow, plus take some shots at the GP. Me, I think it’s jealousy. I think they actually get Robert’s MINI airborne too!
If you haven’t listened to any of these yet, this would be a great one to start with!

M600 Breaks the Record!
October 1, 2006
Duration: 5:02

This just happened a little while ago. Hubie Fuh behind the wheel of the Fireballed! M600 just ran the quarter mile at English Town in 10.62 seconds at 128MPH (1.6/60ft)!
The run did not happen easily. Saturday they had a problem with the pistons. After some serious hustling by the team they were able to run but only managed a 11.7 quarter mile. After what I am sure was a very long night, Hubie, Jason, Brian and Chris were able to tweak and tune some more for today’s run. Did I mention it was done on a stock MINI head?
Congratulations guys! Good show!
If you haven’t listened to any of these yet, this would be a great one to start with!

A Canadian in Italy
October 25, 2006
Duration: 15:25

Robert and his Wife report in from Italy…not driving a MINI!.
That annoying beeping sound? That would be Robert breaking the speed limit laws in Italy. But at least he has a cool GPS! Great to hear Robert being given what for by both his wife AND the GPS unit, affectionately known as Millie.
And Robert might be switching to a scooter? He could start a club with Michael!

The boys are back! Robert, Jesse, Jake and Spencer back again to cause more mischief on the streets of Toronto.
For their Christmas Special, they drive around Toronto looking for the best freeway onramps, wide enough roads for a reverse J-Turn and someplace to get air in the MINI! Good times as always.
For those of you that are new to Robert’s soundseeing tours, you can go back in the archives and check them all out here. His last one with the lads was classic, much as this one is going to be!

Duration: 7:02

The last of the year, but db was late in getting in posted.
Robert gets a chance to drive a Smart. The grandfather of the lads owns one. 3 cylinder diesel, incredible mileage and quite peppy. Plus, it has the cutest little horn. Awwww.
This isn’t the car he drove, but it looked way cooler. Also to note is the lack of snow on the ground. Robert says:
Note the complete lack of snow in Toronto. It’s almost balmy outside. Methinks we’re going to pay for this come February!

Audio Review: Gabe Drives the R56

I was able to get Gabe on his cell phone for some laps on the track in an R56 Cooper, Cooper S and Cooper S with an automatic. Plus, a ride in a Cooper with Dave Bunting.
Overall, he really thinks this MINI does the R50/R53 justice. If you are one who is ordered, or is still on the fence, you definitely are going to want to listen to this!

It’s that time again gang! A MINI Vacation in Vegas is right around the corner! And, just like we did with MTTS (Part 1 and Part 2), we give you a full break down of what’s going to be happening.
Joining me this episode are the always charming Michael and Patricia Babishkin from MyCruisePlanner.net. You might remember Michael from his previous appearances under the White Roof and Patricia for her ultra snazzy review of the Samsung Blackjack for us back in January.
We cover all of the goings on during AMVIV for you. You can also get a full list of the events plus all of the information we mentioned here over at www.amviv.com.
If you are looking for Randy to do some work on your MINI, contact him at Webbmotorsports.com to see if he has any spots left. I have spoken to Waylen at Way Motor Works and he told me he had some spots still available. Contact him at www.waymotorworks.com for more information.

This time, it’s Robert and Howard driving a Mellow Yellow R56 MCS.
You might remember Howard. He is the ex-Lincoln Navigator driver that Robert converted into a MINIac! He also has a Harley he likes to ride when Toronto isn’t covered in snow.
I know there are some of you out there that are dying for the RSS feed changes (each category of show will have it’s own feed). I promise I will be working on that right after AMVIV.
Don’t forget to check out Robert on the Mobile Movie Minute. He and his movie mates review movies in the MINI right after seeing them. It’s great fun!

Robert’s Soundseeing Tour #18
May 31, 2007
Duration: 22:18

Robert has really out done himself this time and think you all will be very pleased!
Robert says.
I spent part of Saturday at a track 200 kms from Toronto (www.shannonville.com). We met racers from Toronto and Montreal. Yesterday was MINImeet.ca reunion day.
I recorded amazing sound from the track. Before the rides, in the car (with a pro who talks through the whole track, MINI engine screaming), and after the rides with some of the hobbyist drivers, a passenger and a newbie. And all the while cars are whizzing by in the background.
This was great fun and I hope you all enjoy it!
Don’t forget, Robert is a podcasting machine! You can check him out at the Mobile Movie Minute and his Business Cast. Both are great!

The MINI Challenge: MINIs vs. somewhat reasonable competitors! Twisties, ABS tests, hard braking, shoelace turns and ‘S’ turns – we did ‘em all. There was an obvious winner – and a good 2nd place finisher. Terrific sound on the track, lot’s of squealing tires. You’ll enjoy this – you’ll think you were there!
Outstanding yet again Robert! I’m sure all y’all will enjoy this.

Robert’s Soundseeing Tour #20
September 10, 2007
Duration: 3:34

Robert just hit 40K miles and there are a few issues going on with his MINI. He was in for service and shortly after it konked out on him on the streets of Toronto! Turns out his EWS was gone. That’s the part that lets the key talk to the car.
Then, he wasn’t able to open the passenger door without clicking the key 3 times.
He is starting to have problems with his clutch as well. Sounds like the same problems Todd had with his ’03. Anyone else having these problems?
Don’t forget Robert has done a ton of these! You can find them all here. He also does another podcast that you should check out. It’s called The Mobile Movie Minute, where he goes to the movies and reviews them in his MINI! Great stuff!

Also true I am not a cute 14 year old girl. Not a problem there either since Robert actually let me drive his MINI. Ok, so it was an empty parking lot, but still.
Thanks again to Robert for coming out and hanging with me for the night. It was great fun!
Don’t forget to check out Robert’s other podcasts! Business Cast with him and Reader Guy offering tips to business. And, the now also World Famous Mobile Movie Minute with his lovely wife. They see movies and review them in his MINI!

Robert’s Soundseeing Tour #23
February 27, 2008
Duration: 11:12

It’s been awhile since we’ve been able to enjoy the audio stylings of Robert Gold. He’s been busy with the Mobile Movie Minute and the new and improved Business Cast, both of which would be worthy of your subscription.
So Robert went to the Toronto Auto Show with Paul, one of his frequent co-hosts on the Mobile Movie Minute. He talks to everyone and spends quite a bit of time crawling in, on and around a 2008 MINI Cooper Clubman. Good stuff as always, I’m sure you’ll like it!

WRR Special: Ask Chad

While the boys were at the Detroit Auto Show, Chad and I took about 1/2 hour to clear out some of the messages in the Ask Chad inbox.
Remember, our man Chad does this for you relatively free of charge. To help support Chad (and to keep him excited about answering your questions) why not take a minute to head over to Detroit Tuned and see if there is something that you could use for your MINI. Or, if you are in the area, stop by and say hi.

We know you are looking for as many photos of the F56 and JCW Concept as possible, so go check them out! Don’t forget about Woofcast #500 coming up next month! Happening in Phoenix, AZ at Eurotechs. It’s the only time Todd will be on the west coast if you want graphics and the first time we’ve done a truly live thing since Woofcast #400!
