First Drive - IT RIPS!! (Poor Little MR2...) 

Views 757K

First drive in 5 years! It's clear now that the JDM MR2 stands no chance against the mighty Moog Buggy. In this episode we take it for the first drive after over 5 years in storage (and it absolutely rips!) But before we hit the battle pad, it needs brakes, a tune and some final mods in preparation for the challenges.
Meanwhile Marty is working on his MR2 but probably has worked out by now that his rust infested Toyota stands now chance against the mighty Carby fuelled VW Beetle from the 1970s.

For a challenge, take them to salt flats. Since it looks like the moon and the mr2 has been driven on roads covered in salt.

I don’t think it matters too much what wd40 you used, I just use standard off the shelf for cleaning all my firearms and never had an issue. They’re quite a high compression object and no failures so I think your carbs are gonna be okay, don’t worry keyboard warriors

Those spaces make me cringe. A wheel should be sat on the hub and not the hub bolts. I would change to some hubcentric spacers for safety

In regards to the shifter, I prefer "it's like stirring a pot of soup". Credit to Dave from the Speed Academy channel. It looks like a really light car with decent power to weight ratio. I don't know about those tires though.

I dunno guys. The drawcard for this channel has always been the banter and commeraderie between U n Marty. No disrespect to your guitar tuning mate, but personally I feel this pairing is a step in the wrong direction from the winning formula that has brought this channel success

I would change out those wheels to something about half that width. Then remove and demolish that ugly macpherson strut super beetle front end and install an earlier beam front end.
