'Drifting' my MGB GT :)
Weekly Challenge 2: Do donuts/drift your car Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YouTube.AdamC3046 A new series I'm trying out, which I'm calling the weekly challenge. The idea is that you challenge me to do something (legal) with my car. This week, I have been challenged to do donuts, or drift, my car. So I took it to a skid pan to show some MX5s who's boss. Thanks to VT SV and RBD Photography for filming, and to Mission Motorsports for letting my borrow the skid pan for a bit. Write in the comments what I should do with my car next week. Every video will be uploaded on a Wednesday at 5pm. Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adamcanfield/ Instagram: @adamc3046 Link to recommended video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E7jJ40hrKk

First drive of the LS1-powered MGB GT!
A big day! The MG came out of the garage for the first time in nearly two years. This is just a "let's make sure it all works" drive. The power steering pump was a bit low on fluid, thus the moaning noise. The brakes were a bit soft but worked - you can see me checking them as I bring the car out of the garage the first time. And yes, there was a good burnout that didn't get caught on camera. The car is a 1972 MGB GT that's been fitted with the engine and transmission from a 1998 Camaro Z28. It's packing somewhere between 350 and 400 hp, has a 6-speed T-56 transmission and a Positraction rear. The front suspension runs on a custom frame and is modeled after a Miata, the rear is a custom three-link setup. At the moment, the car weighs less than 2000 lbs. Please note that while the radiator looks low, it actually fit behind the MG Special Tuning airdam that is not fitted. It's since been replaced with a more efficient radiator that isn't quite as deep, mostly for better cooling. For more information: http://www.slowcarfast.com
