Thanks to The Zebra for sponsoring today’s video. Click to learn everything you ever wanted to know about car insurance.
Thank you to Optimist Studios​ for letting us shoot this wicked fun Zebra Ad in their lot! Check em out!
Thank you to our good friends at EAD for helping us get out hands on cool cars to do fun stuff with!
Thanks to DDE-EFI for all the help on the dash!
So we opted to go the fancy route and swap our Miata gauge cluster for a supercar-like digital dash! Now the problem is that we can’t read fuel levels or oil pressure! So today we fixed those problems by adding some aftermarket bits to our ECU!

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!

  • I like how the policy in the new studio was no personal project cars. So Zach just started using everyones personal car for Money Pit and they are all in there anyway

  • That's maybe 7-10 FPS after *fixing* the lag. That would drive me nuts. I wouldn't do this mod without 144fps/144Hz and for a simple GUI I don't see why that isn't possible. I also wonder how this thing is in the daylight. A very important consideration when driving a convertible.

  • Digital Dash Upgrade - was it worth it? ABSOLUTELY NOT So much of effort on putting a digital dash that is struggling to show an rpm reading. The high quality panel ensures you cringe each time you see it move. An led bulb based reader from 90s car does a far better job than this! Zach has done a really awesome job. It would have paid off if the product had lived up to the mark.

  • I think the sponsors you guys are getting are super awesome. I hope by getting something like insurance sponsoring you guys means that you guys are getting FAT checks. I know it ain't much, but I let all the ads playthrough so youtube gives you the max ad change for my view. I recently started liking your videos, because I guys that's a penny or two at a certain point. Thanks guys for doing the stupid shit I'm to scared to do, the smart way, so I can learn to apply my imagination successfully 💯

  • I am a big car enthusiast. I was so upset on finding India's so called car youtubers like gaisal kahn who call or pretend themselves car guy without having any passion/knowledge about cars. So I started watching DDE, STRADMAN, SHMEE150, TAVARISH, HOOVIES GARAGE, MANNY KHOSHBIN AND VINWIKI I want your suggestion to start a channel inspired by donut media(specifically their up to speed series)in hindi to step up our INDIAN game. Plz.. share your views on this idea.

  • I’m loving the fact that the dash uses either a raspberry pi or raspbian os to run on because there is the raspberry in the bottom left when he is on the phone with the guy. There is also the chromium symbol which means it is a lower spec system
