5.0MG ver­sion 2.0

Hot Rod Garage Ep. 71

“If we made this thing han­dle and stop,” Tony said, “it would be a track ma­chine!” The 5.0MG, a ’64 MGB sports car the guys dropped a Ford 5.0-liter V-8 into back in sea­son five, is back, and it’s time to make it han­dle right. Can Tony and Lucky make a car that Tony called “ter­ri­fy­ing” and “a death­trap” be­have? It’ll take a new 8.8-inch rear axle with a cus­tom three-link, plus coil-over shocks at all four cor­ners. Hav­ing the right parts is one thing, but you’ve got to make them work to­gether. For that, the guys take the 5.0MG to the race­track at Wil­low Springs and show you how to ad­just shocks, anti-roll bars, and tire pres­sures to get your sus­pen­sion han­dling the way you want it to.
