    How To Upgrade the Front Brakes on a Fox Body #FairmontProject
    EricTheCarGuy



    Published on Dec 23, 2016
    Stopping is just as important than going in a performance car. For the #FairmontProject, I went with brakes that were part of a 5 lug conversion.

    My 5 lug kit: https://lmr.com/item/SVE-2300DK-B/199...

    I'm told these brakes are the same as a '94 Cobra. To be honest, I wasn't overly happy with them. Mostly the parts themselves. They were aftermarket parts, not Ford, and I think that's the main issue. I had fitment issues and the quality of the parts isn't all that great as a result. I'm going to reserve judgement until after the car is up and running. If I'm not happy with the brakes at that time, I'll likely swap them out for a better set.

    For now here's a video on their installation, and yes, I will go back and torque the spindle nut properly in a future video.

    My GT8's FIRST EVER Engine Start! [Road to GT8 Episode 07]
    Shmee150



    Published on Dec 24, 2016
    It's time to bring the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 to life with the very first startup of the V8 at the end of the production line! Having followed the car through the build, from the body shell being painted Cobalt Blue and then earlier stages of the production line during the marriage and final trim stages; this is time for it to roll on its own wheels and travel through geometry, rolling road and outdoors for some road testing.

    I cannot thank Aston Martin enough for this fantastic opportunity to be able to bring you the look behind the scenes at the build process of my Vantage GT8. On both a personal level with the storyline for my own car and also the content I'm able to bring to you guys, it's absolutely wonderful.

    I hope you enjoy this amazing opportunity, and equally the content that is to come as the car moves along the line and ultimately continues on the Road to GT8.

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Roadkill vs. Mighty Car Mods! - Roadkill Ep. 60
    Motor Trend Channel



    Published on Dec 25, 2016
    Check out the Mighty Car Mods side of the story here: https://youtu.be/NoBnwKu5g5U

    This is the episode fans of Roadkill and Mighty Car Mods have been demanding for two years! It’s also a bonus episode of Roadkill powered by Dodge—the 13th installment of the 2016 season! David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan finally got together with Marty and Moog of Mighty Car Mods, Australia’s most popular YouTube show for gearheads. The four guys came to an agreement: RK would build the most American car possible for the MCM blokes, and then Marty and Moog would assemble an absurd icon of Mighty Modding for the Roadkill boys. Both teams gave all: Roadkill jammed together a 1969 Chevy Impala stuffed with the supercharged, 489ci big-block Chevy that was formerly in the Crusher Camaro; and Mighty Car Mods hacked the Subarute out of a hapless turbo WRX. There’s no way to imagine the fun that explodes across the language barrier when these four get together for some killer burnouts and mad skids!
    After you watch Roadkill’s side of the story, make sure to see the buildup of the Mighty Car Mods Subarute by watching the episode on the Mighty Car Mods channel of YouTube. Both teams made episodes that went live on Christmas Day in the USA (Boxing Day in Oz) as a thank you to the fans! Roadkill is sponsored by Lincoln Tech, CRC Auto, Optima Batteries, Cooper Tire, Jegs, and Pioneer Car Audio.

    MCM VS ROADKILL [SPECIAL]

    Published on Dec 24, 2016
    Marty and Moog head to LA to embark on a budget build off with rival TV show Roadkill. With a tiny budget and just a couple of days to build it, they'll have to pull off some crazy mods to get their car finished in time for battle...

    Check out Roadkill's Episode and the Battle here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5ssR...

    This video was totally self funded. If you'd like to support the show feel free to grab a shirt, sticker or song from the MCM website. We ship worldwide! https://mightycarmods.com/collections/

    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.

    B.C. LOGGING TRUCKS #17 -- JF LOGGING: Kenworth T800 & Peterbilt 367H. Cummins Power

    This video-montage captures a few Jed Fryer Logging trucks hauling through the North Okanagan during the spring/summer of 2016. Some of the JFL trucks featured in this video have sold since the filming of this video.

    I wish there was less four-wheeler traffic on the roadways along with fewer clouds in the sky during filming – it is what it is. It was the first summer in 20 years that solid-blue, sunny skies did not display brightly day after day after day.

    I hope other trucking enthusiasts enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed filming it.

    Thank you for watching!
