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!

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%

Exhaust and intake mods - was there a tune along with them? Otherwise they may not have been much use... Brake should definitely have also been on the list! I really hope this project gets brought back to life

Blotted Hace 21 un día
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.

How to build a car. 1. Add power 2. Check to see if adding power made something fail. Yes? Upgrade that part No? Add more power 3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until your 0-60 time is faster than your 60-0 time. Add brake system.
ClericChris Hace un mes
You spent 10k and it doesn't have a turbo in it? I don't think you have your priorities straight. 6k turbo/injectors/fuel pump/tune, 2k suspension/tires, 1k in brakes 500 in cooling. Over time you can get better versions of these parts. I don't think your upgrades are going to get you more than 2-3 seconds faster.

I'm about to buy a Miata this week. Can you guys do an episode on what the first maintenance of your new project car should look like? I'm looking for a list of all things I should replace on day 1 of the project.

just turn the heater on and point the jets/ blow thingies up, its a convertible...the heater matrix is an extra radiator that your not using. of course you might pass out and it might not do much in 39c....just saying.

You should have done a reference lap with the car when you bought it to see how much it improved. Using the fastest lap of some other driver, who may have a lot more experience on the track and have his car dialed in to the track doesn't really give you a meanignful target time.

Im gonna guess the mods that car has for this track wont make the big of difference. Willow Springs is all low radius turns where its more about speed except except the small section of a tight uphill cambered Left than Right S corner and with that stock motor making less than 200hp, it will hardly need those parts to make a big difference

Finally! Some good footage of the radio in the sun, and you can't read the screen. That's something I've been wondering since you did the radio upgrade video. When I upgraded my radio I ruled out LCD screens because seeing the radio in a convertible means direct sunlight, which I didn't think would be readable. And now I know I was probably right.

If the cooling is the only issue, why not just remove the front bumper to get some some complete laps. Put the roof up for better aero and be able to listen to the engine. I mean race drivers used to hear the engines to figure out when to change gears. You could have even adjust the tire pressure to hone in the lap times.
