EP 38 Pam Hall

A play on the triumph and losses in performance and life.  The Talent Tank podcast will navigate the inner workings of lifestyle, lives, family, teams, careers, programs, and technology in and around the offroad motorsports industry.  What breeds success with your Talent Tank on full, failures when its on empty.  From the journey to the Starting Line to take that Green Flag, on to exploring trials and tribulations on and off the track in pursuit of victorious achievement and the Checkered Flag.

Rarer than a unicorn; a female motorsports announcer, but wait there's more.  She's also a veteran offroad racecar driver with 13+ years chasing dust.  No way you say!  Yes, Unicorns do exist!  On this episode of The Talent Tank, we are so blessed to be graced with ULTRA4 Racing's newest face to the LIVE feed, the lovely and super talented Pam Hall, @mrspamhall
Crank it up, put on your American Flag Bikini, and break off the knob because Pam kills it on the behind the scenes pre-running, King of the Hammers photography, keeper of the KOH WiFi master password, course marking, visor down time, Rebelle Rally, and how she came to be Co-Host of the Ultra4 Live Feed play-by-play.

After the Checkered Flag-
Anyone familiar with all of the prep and engineering work required to make a traditional race car will laugh when they see what it takes to set up a skidplate racer:
1. Strip the interior.
2. Relocate the battery away from the extremities of the car.
3. Weld the doors and trunk shut, then chain down the hood, too.
4. Replace the back wheels with metal skids.
That last part is the important one, but not particularly complicated. You take a regular, cheapest-wheel-in-the-universe steelie and weld a set of steel plates to it like a fat ski. It’s a few basic welds to make the skidplate and the wheel bolts right up to the car as before.
It is with this small change that makes the skidplate what it is: near-uncontrollable for the driver and unquestionably entertaining for anybody watching.

Traditional race cars are what they are because they try to be objectively better. Better accelerating. Better braking. Better handling.

Skidplate cars are intentionally worse. Losing all of the traction of your rear-wheels in a front-wheel drive car makes it want to slide absolutely everywhere. Lift off the gas and the car tries to spin out. Get back on the gas and the car pulls itself straight, until you feed in too much throttle, at which point the front wheels slip and the whole car tries to spin out again.
