Frontline MG LE50
We've been big fans of Frontline for a long time - for both the amazing parts they produce to make MGs go, handle and stop better, and the awesome cars they build for their customers. With the launch of MG LE50, their awesome Mazda engined new project, it was a golden opportunity to go along and chat to Tim and Ed about this groundbreaking new project.
Aventador vs High HP Supra
Update- Yes, its sad but true.. RIP Supra. A friend of the owner wrote me and said the driver was ok but the car is totaled. (it happen a few weeks after this video was shot) :(
New Update- the Aventador was sold to the rapper Tyga and he went off the road and crashed. :(
So we were driving back from a exotic car meet/event, getting back on the highway when we see a modified Supra and wanted to see if he would play with us.
He did and he pulled on us every time... Both the Avy driver and I are HUGE car enthusiast
and love Supra's so we were happy to see what it could do. :)

Driving the LS1-powered MGB GT
The almost-finished LS1-powered MGB GT on the road! The car is a 1972 chassis that's been rebuilt from an almost-bare shell. Power comes from a lightly modified 5.7l LS1 V8 from a 1998 Camaro Z28, running through a T56 6-speed transmission and a Positraction rear end. The front runs a custom-built frame with Miata suspension and steering. The rear is a GM axle with a custom three-link suspension. The body was widened using steel flares from a Rabbit, and has been massively reinforced underneath to handle the power and torque. It's not quite reassembled after the paint job, there's a bit of chrome missing along with the fenders.
All the work was done in my home garage on jackstands, including the paint. It took about two years to build the car.

MGC GT Sebring w/ 1JZ powerplant
Alex Washburn's tribute to the MGC GT Sebring's that raced at Sebring 12 Hours in 1968/69, built by Bill @ DSG. To keep the sound of a straight 6 we chose a cost effective 1JZ turbo Toyota powerplant/R154 transmission instead of a costly/heavy Rover tractor engine. Suspension is double wishbone in front and Ford 8.8, 3 Link with Watts Linkage in the rear. Dampers are Penske 8670 3 ways from a 96 MSD Accord BTCC (David Leslie's hopefully). An Apexi PowerFC will be tuned by Matt @ DSG in the upcoming weeks but the engine running is a very nice sound after the work and time invested.
