So I have been having a bunch of problems with my computer and editing software but after 400hrs of editing (started in October) the video is finally done. There were a total of 8 cameras, 4TB of footage, and for whatever reason my supercomputer kept crashing. I am happy to say this one is done and now onto the DIY!!!! The 7th annual Christmas Gift Idea video is in a few days so stay tuned!!

Guys didn't do anything wrong on the spin the Miata the way it looked floored it and got on the tight part of the turn and lost traction a little and that's why he hit you so nothing bad but then again I'm only a drag racer and on this subject could you guys in the future do a drag car please

My 2009 Honda Accord Stalled 5 years ago After I Drove Through High Waters But After A Few Tries It Started Again But With The Engine Light 5 Years Ago And Was Told The Catalytic Converter Is Bad, That’s The Code That Comes Up. As I’m Driving Sometimes Exhaust Smells Permeate The Interior Which Smell Like Rotten Eggs. Also Somehow I’ve Managed To Pass DMV Inspection 4 Years Straight With A Check Engine Light & Bad Catalytic Converter. What’s crazy is that this year I failed the DMV EMISSION TEST 4x and then I went to a shop and asked them to clear the codes and prayed and when they checked again at the DMV it passed 😂. This year they were strict but prior years they weren’t even checking! The dealership says I have Low Compression On The Number 4 Cylinder & P0420 & P0304. They say the engine was at 60psi. They performed the diagnostic in July. I heard Cataclean cleans the catalytic converter. I saw it on Amazon. What do you think? Is That Bad Catalytic Converter Endangering My Life?

The second Miata contact wasn't anything you could fix; he came in hot and he either slow down or didn't want to. He might be working out some daddy issues. I did SCCA, 20 and 30 minute races, never got to do a long race. Good job.

Yeah... the BMW had that line and the miata was living in the vortex of danger. In the Miata's defense... I suppose it's possible he had a mechanical issue such as brake fade. At the end of the race a good bit of the cars are having some form of issue or another.

@Liam Dennehy I agree 100% with the Miata being able to brake later, IMO he dove in too late. If he had been alongside (at least front wheel to front door) before turn in, that would have been fine, BMW would/should have given him space. But in this case BMW should have gotten right of way, BMW was faster, the pass was going to happen anyways. Don't get me wrong I like so aggressive racing but I don't think it was appropriate for this kind of race.
Brad Maas
Brad Maas Aylar önce
@Liam Dennehy The Miata is smaller and lighter, he had enough room, he came in hotter and failed to brake sufficiently to avoid contact.

I disagree, I think the Miata is just able to brake much later being so light, so even though it seems the BMW is ahead at the start of the turn the Miata is alongside in the corner. Not blaming the BMW driver, but these two cars have vastly different performance.

Congrats on the success, you guys did amazing for a second time out! And that Miata driver was 100% at fault imo, that was a hard inside dive they pulled, something that might work in sims but is way too risky to pull at that skill level in real life. Especially because they probably didn't have the brakes or traction to pull off the corner even if they made it past.

@Nevir202 I've never heard anything about changing fluids being against the rules, it certainly isn't enforced if so.

Quickly went through the rulebook and it says nothing about oil changes, so it must be doable. Also: that body roll... I hope there is a way to squeeze in anti roll bars or coilovers into that budget, but i'm not sure how.

Also, a lot of people race with thicker oil. I'm sure forums have lots of opinions on it, but he could also go from say 5w-30 to 5w-40 and so on until it doesn't degrade past a reasonable amount. But really, what he had doesn't seem bad when you're driving all out for 14 hours.

Miata dive bombed he should have left racing room
Ondřej Nejeschleba
i am not sure by that - i understand both. The BMW lifted way too early with having a car this close behind them. I know it's an endurance race, but still, you've got to expect that if you lift off that early in a corner with someone not that far back, they might send it. But yeah, the miata was a lot slower anyway and they would probably get passed on the first opportunity, so it was very unnecessary by them.
TheCarDemotic Aylar önce
@The Electric Monk Yeah that penalty isn’t deserved in my opinion. For something that’s not your fault and for ensuring the safety of yourself and the fellow drivers I think the 10-20 second time loss from going off track is more than sufficient. Rules are rules though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

On this vid, really loved the sense of camaraderie and humour that the race engendered and that the organisers instilled. Great to see how well you all did. For a similar though UK perspective on barging racing (can any motor racing really be bargain) I really recommend the ‘Bargain Racement’ videos from ‘Bad Obsession Motorsport’. Not only is it fun and great content but end point is really interesting. Hope you like if you view. Cheers!

@ChrisFix we also use magnets for the right shoulder strap to attach up to the rollbar next to the rearview mirror. Additionally a Velcro plate fixed up to the top of the rollbar as a failsafe. The surgical tube gets fixed to the left lap belt, crotch belt and another on the right lap belt to pull it back and out of the way as soon as the driver unlatches the belts it will pull them out of the way. I will send some photos to you or upload a video walking through it along with some other tips for pitstop efficiency. Keep up the great videos, love the channel.

Advices for the pit stops: The driver that is going to step in should be already prepared before the car even enters the pit lane. As for the fuel, try fitting a transparent fuel tank with a bigger refill hole and use more powerful pumps. Every 3 hours check the brakes, especially the pads, brake fluid check is also advised. During repairs (like the throttle thing) check tire's pressure and adjust it. Advices in general: Try to not rev the car at its maximum, keep it 2k rpm lower than red line. Do some lift and coast to preserve fuel and in medium - high speed corners try to stay lower on rmps to use less fuel as possible

@Kirito2016 just change the tank and the auxiliary fuel pump into the e46 m3 one, should solve the problem

@samed halafi Actually carting is closer to formula driving than a car racing.. So I agree that it will bring a lot of experience but the driving style is different and a lot of cart drivers get bad habits that dont apply to "normal" cars.

@Chrisfix I am a local driving instructor for people trying to learn proper racing etiquette, racing line, and car control. You guys did well, and the red Miata incident was due to that car braking too late and missing the racing line. He went inside and had about 5 mph too much speed. Once he missed the braking point he couldn't do anything about it. The car couldn't hold that inside line with the available grip, so as soon as he hit the rumble strip it unloaded that side of the suspension slightly. That put to much stress on the outer front tire and he understeered into you guys.

28:10 If it's behind you, its in the past. You focus on the future. Immediately after a clean pass, it becomes the responsibility of the (now second position) other driver to make a clean pass on their own. That miata was 10000% at fault for carrying too much speed into the inside line on the turn and failing to negotiate the turn without contact.

I've always used Motul personally. That is usually the oil of choice for most endurance racing teams including 2022 IMSA GTD Pro champions Pfaff Motorsports, BMW Rahal, and Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus. If it's good enough to win Daytona and to compete at Le Mans it's good enough for me.

Question. When the oil heats up it looses viscosity (or the viscosity changes). what caused the first engine to blow was too thin of oil. So theoretically would an oil cooler fix this problem? I know it might go over the $500 limit but does using a thicker oil counter needing an oil cooler? Thanks

That MX5 coming up from behind was his fault, you had heaps of room and you had the line. He went in for a massive dive from waaay too far back that was absolutely not going to happen and locked up. I think its dumb that you guys were given a penalty for that.

@OK Castle Combe in the UK is overtake on straights and on the right ONLY. Brands Hatch indy is overtake on the left ONLY (predominantly) These aren't dual carriageways...

It's a race track not a dual carriageway. You can overtake whereever you want

@ً ً what you’re “supposed” to do here is stay in the right hand lane until you need to pass, pass on the left, then return to the right. But bad drivers do whatever they want and so some states just gave up and made it legal to do so (I don’t really know why they made it legal, but I can’t think of a good reason). I racing, though, I think it’s always ok to “pass on the inside”, which is what the Miata was attempting to do. It just looks to me like the BMW was holding course, and the Miata slid/overcorrected to the left and hit him. And since he he basically performed a PIT maneuver on the BMW, he would almost certainly have had to have hit him from the middle of the car back, which tells me he had to have seen the BMW out of his windshield or side window (helmet blind spots not withstanding). Of course, if the BMW moved to the right then it’s his fault, but it just looks to me like the Miata swerved/skidded to the left. I formally declare this horse whipped to death 🤣

Maybe just me but it looked like he got into you on purpose. You passed with plenty of room and then he comes out of nowhere and turns into you using a move I’ve seen on COPS lol.

@Ron Skopitz I'm in the UK where we overtake on the right, but drive on the left so just assumed you guys drive on the left overtaken on the right, so camera car would be "undertaking". Weird there's different laws for different states! The camera car would've definitely been in the blind spot at the point of contact, but always being aware of your surroundings should be prioritised tbh.. if the miata checked mirrors before hand, and saw the BMW disappear, one can assume it's in a blind spot rather than teleported away which is why i'd lean to the miata being at fault but from an insurance POV i can see why i'd more than likely be 50/50

You're definitely nice racers than I am - that corner was yours (Garrett's), the red MX5 throwing it up the inside was a ridiculous manoeuvre

The 2nd miata hit wasn't you guy's fault I think. I personally think it's kind of hard to race with miatas while not in a miata. They're usually slower but they maintain more speed through turns than most cars, so you expect them to be behind you and they're going for a pass at 80mph through a sweeping turn instead. I feel like miatas make you feel like you can always go for that inside line overtake through turns and you've gotta learn to be like "nahh I probably shouldn't" sometimes.
ChrisFix Aylar önce
That’s a good point actually because he came into that turn very very quickly and hard on the brakes.

So know we get a dent removal video, tie rod replacement video, AND a rim buff out video … can’t wait! Great job on keeping that beast on the track. I had no idea the $500 endurance cars pushed so far over 100mph continuously … btw, great job editing … watched the vid … never got dull.

The miata could of stopped that from happening but when your going 100 mph I’m assuming you have lots of adrenaline and it’s more of a both teams watch of for it it’s a great learning opportunity

I wish they would increase the base price because it's near impossible to find a car for 500 dollars. On top of that, it's difficult to make a cheap car run. And the most difficult part is finding people who want to join in on this.
ChrisFix Aylar önce
So it doesn’t have to be $500. Our car was $1100 but we sold parts off of it to bring it below $500. Think of it as a way to keep people from spending a ton of money. Find a junky car and Turn it into a racecar.

Great editing (problems included). As someone who raced many, many, moons ago. Back in my 20's. Each & every one of you did a fantastic job of clean racing. That Miata, was nowhere near your "B" pillar. So underestimated himself bigtime and deserved a penalty too match. Overall... Well done! And with a little fine tuning. I expect a podium finish next year! =D

Here your bumper needs to hit their front door for it to be "overlap" and it has to be done PRIOR to any steering input by the lead car. It's always the overtaking cars responsibility to pass safely though so it's 100% on the miata. The miata is 100% in the wrong for several reasons but dive bombing post steering input of the lead car instantly makes it 200% miatas fault. Quidk edit: We don't know the rules in this specific race but there's no way that's allowed in any racing series beyond rallyX or folkrace.

Track Addict has a feature where you can set pit speeds, and it will flash/yell at you when you are exceeding it - a good reminder for when you pit while being too excited :) Awesome video, awesome time, thanks for posting! Oh, regarding the rear contact with the red Miata, IMO, it was his fault, not your guys. It's always the responsibility of the overtaking car to ensure a safe and clean pass. Your guy did that in the straight, just before corner entry, with a good gap. The Miata essentially tried to late-brake you guys, but you were already cutting in toward the apex. Typically, if the other car was alongside your guy BEFORE the corner entry, then you would have had to give him the inside or else make contact. He tried to get alongside you by late-braking too close to comer entry IMO. At that point, he was attempting a pass, and failed to ensure it happened safely and cleanly. He either went in a little too hot, wasn't paying attention, or was pissed at getting passed.

The bit where he talked about how nasty a minefield is has a personal significance for him that many people don't know about. In Vietnam he once walked into a minefield to rescue one of his men who had stepped on a mine and was bleeding to death. He described it as the most fear he ever felt, yet he did it anyway.
