It’s time for our first track day in the Money Pit Miata! We’re taking it to Willow Springs for a track day hosted by our friends at EAD Exotics. We’ll see if all the money we’ve dumped in the pit has been worth it or just wasted!
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • lol came back to see what was the time without turbo because they didn't say it on the last video so they spent over 19k on a turbo to get 6 seconds faster

  • You guys are really good spending too much money to not go fast the car would have handled fine enough to put atleast 300hp in it instead of making it a better handling gocart jsut so dumb.

  • Probably could get a different bumper with better air flow so you could od more than one lap ctfu.

    The Anarchist CookbookThe Anarchist Cookbookپیش ماه
  • Still no catch can? They're like 50$. Thats why the 350z's blew up well and no oil cooler but its not turbo'd so its not gunna get hot anyways.

  • I would definitely invest in brakes. Your times would decrease even more. Your confidence in driving will even increase!

    Matthew HunterMatthew Hunterپیش ماه
  • Should've put redline water wetter in the coolant, its a cheap way to help the cooling system be more efficient. That and lowering the ratio of antifreeze to water. In southern California you don't need 50/50 antifreeze to water since its not gonna get much colder than freezing and a little more water will help the cooling, although you dont want too little antifreeze cuz it helps increase the boiling point.

  • But yea that much money should make a major difference in handling

  • Almost all of the power from the miata is put to the gorund stock, adding more mods to put the power to the ground wont increase your time, let's say they added a turbo and a engine swap for that 9k, they wouldnt be much faster too, since most of the power doesnt get to the ground, its the fine balance that matters

    EctosEctosپیش ماه
  • Should have engine swapped it

  • You could have spent that money on straight up engine and tranny work to make that thing a beast. Instead you put racing seats and a short shifter. Ricers pshh. Lol jk love you guys but really you could have spend 9k on some serious performance mods and accually made that shit a beast. Like better pistons, crank, valves and cam, put a turbo of charger, better cooling and air, etc.

  • I am sure heat killed your lap times , if your 1:46 was at around 70F air temperature compare to 103F that is it . Otherwise you truly justified name of the show Money Pit 💰
