Thanks to Hyundai and the 2021 Veloster N for sponsoring today’s episode. We really like this car and know you will as well! To learn more about why the the 2021 Veloster N is so much fun, click here:
This week on Money Pit, we're giving Eddie's miata an altitude adjustment. But not in the direction you might expect. We're lifting it so we can run over all the new curbs at our new office! Will the added ground clearance be worth the compromises?
We have a new channel!
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • Turbo Miata is fun and all. But that turbo is useless when you can't even get out of your driveway without busting your bumper. Bring this monster of a mod to Zach's Miata!!!

  • My 91 Nissan Sentra e(profile pic), ended up with around 10"-12" of ground clearance just by removing the carpet. 4 wheel independent suspension and no sway bars, 195/60/14" Cooper Weathermaster snow tires on all 4 corners, I've taken 90° corners on 2 wheels at 60-65mph.
