Racing My Cheap Ebay Honda Civic In The 1/4 Mile Was The Scariest Thing Ever (DISASTER)

Racing My Cheap Ebay Honda Civic In The 1/4 Mile Was The Scariest Thing Ever (DISASTER)
okay today is the day it's actually very windy it's a little bit cold but actually that's really good for a turbocharged car now I'm not only here with this I'm here with Chris so we are going to be

racing

heads up and the winner is gonna keep the losers car I don't I mean I don't want your car I want my car so okay I want my car more than I want his car so me keeping my car that's gonna be that's gonna be a win enough for me that that's the win I want to
racing my cheap ebay honda civic in the 1 4 mile was the scariest thing ever disaster
keep my car too okay I'm here to keep my car I have no use for your car whatso

ever

this build was of course sponsored by eBay Motors and

ever

y

thing

that we bought was bought on eBay I think maybe maybe maybe maybe just maybe one of us can get into the times I think so yeah so so a lot has been done last night let's just go over what I did and when I said I I mean

ever

ybody

ever

ybody was all hands on deck with this car with this car just making sure that these

thing

s got to Brinson
Motorsports Park that's where we are right now as you can see we have the screamer pipe nice and welded this is not moving anywhere we have a new spring in the blue FL we have a 12 psi spring so that's gonna stay shut when we needed to shut an open wound here to open we did a lot of little

thing

s around the engine bay like just put in bolts where there were no bolts and on the inside this looks really nice so this car key is on the stock rails that's really nice and tight we have the
bolt and roll cage with the weld in harness bar we made sure that the harnesses are within spec as far as the angle and we have a battery box to replace the battery box well there was a battery box back there it was just a battery with some jumper cables so we made sure that that was as safe as possible we also fix the shifter that shifter looks real real good and it shifts a lot nicer I actually haven't taken it at speed but that shift just kind of stationary shift a lot better so we
relocated our air fuel ratio gauge down there because well we couldn't have any space on the a-pillar but other than that this car is almost as it was purchased except for the fact that it has Hoosier slicks these are bias ply slicks I used to have our trip plate ours on there and those were just Road

racing

tires super hard sidewall but this is super soft I've n

ever

actually driven on these so that should be interesting but one

thing

I really want to point out is that we could not have
done a more different challenge so Chris got a small-block Chevy bored and stroked he has an EFI setup he has a nitrous look at the nitrous bottle in this

thing

so he has a nitrous bottle in there he's running a 250 shot which means that he's gonna get 250 extra horsepower on top of the engine and that's gonna be a lot a lot a lot of power coming out of this car but the car also weighs a lot but this car doesn't weigh any

thing

this is probably around the 2,000 pound mark and this
engine with this turbo makes around 600 horsepower hopefully it makes a little bit more than that because it's well it's pretty chilly out here and turbos like that kind of weather right now instead of going heads up we're just gonna do some test passes because neither of us have been to the track in many many years and neither of us have driven cars with this much power so we don't even know how to do a Burnout properly so we're going to do that we're gonna do some test
passes just to see how the cars react and then we're gonna give it the beans and see who comes out on top got to give some gas Jared knows some

thing

I get foul plugs yeah okay it's my first time doing this in such a high horsepower car but I figure how hard could it be now I'm gonna do a Burnout yay so I have a little confession to make the fastest front-wheel drive car I've

ever

driven with my Nissan Maxima and I did take that to the track with the manual but I didn't do a
racing my cheap ebay honda civic in the 1 4 mile was the scariest thing ever disaster
very good job my best time was a 13.8 with a good driver to do a nine-second run I stole I'm not gonna do any to spell to watch I just want to see how this

thing

right now Wow okay so this has zero traction no traction at all all right no attraction at the higher end when the turbo spools up after 6,000 rpm that's going to take some getting used to I'm going to need to get some heating those tires no tires are very very cold if I can hook Chris is in trouble he is so in trouble
all right uh so there's no power no power no power and then 6700 rpm hits and then it's like all hell breaks loose like the entire world just goes into a blur Wow okay tell like you took off and you're like all right yeah right at the top of fourth up for you did 75 to the 330 okay 330 yeah no I wasn't I wasn't doing any over 10 seconds in the eighth okay but you did 15 one and currently have high score one

mile

an hour though Oh videos you shifted and that's yeah oh she
wins it turns out if you're gonna buy a fast car in eBay voters just you by

Honda

right um goodbye a little rice cake yeah go real fast then one

thing

that you got more practice to you yeah the one

thing

that this this car desperately desperately needs is traction and it is it is great there's no traction so get the tires yeah I need to get the tires a lot and you'll get it so and I know what you're talking about about the the tires dancing around my yeah alright okay I'm
doing this so be a little further to the right tune you can try to get more make you have the parking brake on for that too parking brake when you go to do the second gear burning yeah the parking brake so you'll sit there okay and you're gonna walk less and get them going I was just scared of Accra braking so I am fairly certain this is why the guy I sold the car he built this well I know it slow some

thing

some

thing

I don't know so we can either well I'm gonna put we're
gonna get the timing light we're gonna get five degrees and give it one more chance and then we try to find the nearest parts store and go back all in a day at this point I'm willing to do almost any

thing

just trying it down the track like fast reasonable yeah I don't believe a seven-five n

ever

came out in the hour no because no

thing

we've done would make it slower to this level no I mean the nitrous is working it's working told you guys it feels like it's running better
and then stronger just by the book by like a fracture you think the engines just hurt or tired possible I mean has a lot of blow by but the plugs don't indicate oil who knows so even though I'm having a lot of problems with traction it seems like Chris bought the wrong car so all I have to do is make sure my car doesn't blow up and I want to win this

thing

let's try this again all right let me try let me try it launch

thing

s are just falling off all over someplace so let me
just tell you one

thing

about this car it is impossible to control there's that right pedal it's just like if you want the world to end that's that's a pedal you press because after that it's just I was thrown clear I don't know I was out in the car at one point it just is the most insane

thing

ever

ever

y

thing

shakes I've n

ever

seen a - shake the roll cage is shaking independently in the back this this fell out oh yeah I don't know I don't know

ever

y

thing

racing my cheap ebay honda civic in the 1 4 mile was the scariest thing ever disaster

ever

y

thing

radio it's it's like an airplane contents may have shifted during flight what do you think you did I think I did like a 15 one well you did 106

mile

an hour okay at 17 13 four five

ever

y time I think like oh this cars pulling pretty good then the turbo kicks it you have to you have to try this I have no idea how to get this dialed in because the problem is just grip the second this

thing

starts pulls up it that's it that's no

thing

that I get no

thing

it just dances
around and I got will happen the top of third and fourth we need that weight plate but we weren't able weight weight plate would be really good the problem is the we needed smaller slicks and to accommodate for the bigger slicks we have to raise the suspension about an inch which put the weight distribution kind of like back here where there's no weight so you want all the weight in front and it's just I'm you're fighting fighting fighting grip so I mean I've been to the
page you should if you drive this car just to see you like it's gonna blow up and also I think it I think it had like a boost cut or some

thing

first of all I don't know what the with attack signal is because it just goes right off the end of the scale on the limiter the whole time practic right okay so doing doing a heads-up race with Chris and if I'm

ever

gonna send it this is the time to send it installed in the wall restarted Oh No yeah that's such bad luck for Chris has too
many cylinders you know all you need is four I'm getting the point they're not not running any

thing

Chris's car instead all I have to do is keep my car together whoo spread in third I think that's that's probably a solid boat 13 maybe it definitely needs a little less boost in third and more traction but the car stays together

ever

y

thing

's fine all this

Honda

so good I definitely buy support

ever

y

thing

on eBay for less than 9 grand this Bentley has a lot a lot of
potential I am NOT the right driver for this what hilarious I get to keep my car and I also get to keep Christmas card well okay that was a lot of fun and we've come to an understanding if you watch Chris's channel you'll see that well he just didn't want to get rid of his car and I didn't want to make you give up your cars my most expensive week in Florida

ever

so what we did is we took half the value of the car which is around three thousand dollars and Chris is now going
to donate that to a charity of his shoes and he said Mission 2222 yeah they help veterans in need yeah so that's that's really awesome but what was awesome for you for not not taking the money because I offered to buy it from him buy my car back because I really want it if you didn't see it my engine boy oh so the engines won't so that that's that's okay it happens that's what happens in a blow like right like at the last pass like I could have done too earlier if he
kept telling me like let's just do a pass let's start the best-of-three let's start the best-of-three and then the engine just literally crapped out from let's do it right now yeah so that's gonna be it it was it was a lot of fun I'm whole worth a year in a row yeah hopefully we can do some

thing

where we actually do run a ten or nine second pass thank you very much to Bradenton Motorsports Park and also thank you to eBay Motors for sponsoring this entire series and the
eBay app will be down below will the eBay Motors app and we brought all the parts on eBay in the cars on eBay Motors so that was all next time we do a collab we should sleep we should plan it so we can we can go to sleep we should we should probably sleep okay alright so that's gonna be it actually that is not gonna be it because the MVP as always actually extra as always today is this guy Jared so Jared toiled over Kristin's car he also helped my car quite a bit because I I kind of
wussed out and went home last night at at what 4:30 in the morning yeah 4:30 and we got home at 7 in time to be back at the shop at 8 to load up so yeah so we are we are we're a team no sleep right now but Jared he's he's a I mean if you look at him he's not very happy about

thing

s but I figured I could make him happy and he has his helmet so he's gonna take my car on a drive and you're not gonna break it are you Jerry let's go two for two okay no let's not
let's not let's not break my car okay don't break my car okay oh hey jerk remember that one

thing

that I asked you not to do No hey I remember what I said you should you should definitely split the clutch and not just fun that sounds good all right so that's it for today's episode hopefully you guys enjoy the series thank you very much the

ebay

motors thank you very much to Chris from BS or build go check out his channel in his bill it really is some

thing

special

ever

y

thing

will be in the link of the video description but right now I have to put my

Civic

back on the trailer and take it home and see what your see what your brother yes now both of the cars are broken so until next time this is me reminding you guys that on cars like this that Jared broke without having any fun anyway you guys need to wrench average actually a little bit of a change of plans I figured since we were in Bradenton and the car is a drag car I figure I could leave it with a
friend of mine how you doing well I figure you know you use v8s and this is basically a v8 just for less cylinders and what I mean it's basically Leroy it's it's just Leroy it's basically just backwards and the wrong wheels are driving it

ever

y

thing

yeah yeah so uh we'll dial it in for you we'll do some guy

racing

and then we'll have you back to drive it awesome awesome yeah so this is going to be part of cletus's sweet whoo can't wait
