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

1 apr 2020
756 984 Skatījumi

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.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
