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!

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

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 💰

No maintenance purchases? I just paid 4k for a 2011 speed3 and I have 5k in upgrades sitting in the garage but about 4k in just oem, replacement, support, and refurbish...then make more power gotta make sure you sound and monitored and maintenanced before you add power just a thought and the way im doing it on a 16k budget and to each his own its your chicken you can fuck it how you want

So where's the update for the fix on the fuse?? And did you get a better time? With $9,600.00 upgrades, I'd think you s/b at at least 1.2-1.3? And would $10k (rounding up) acceptable for .3 better timing on the track? 😁🙄

Mx5 has design flaw in its cooling system. Solution is to by pass the heater core. Pop up the headlights..it says would increase cooling by 40%

Blotted Muaj më parë
I think you forgot to add a turbo in the build because the sotck engine is a straight turd but everything else was a good move. but Willow Springs isnt a very technical track and doesnt really push suspension to its limits. Most of its just flowing sweeping corners that wont benefit as much from the mods you have the ca as much as horsepower mods would have done with your tires. So I highly highly doubt youll shave 15-16 seconds off.
