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.
