00:00

all right you got it Max

00:06

Speed we bought this Ford Ranger for

00:08

$500 and soon we'll be racing through

00:11

the deserts of Mexico in the Nora 500

00:13

but before we do that we need to make

00:15

some major upgrades in order to survive

00:17

yeah in the last video we upgraded the

00:19

suspension as you may be able to see and

00:21

as much as we would love to take the

00:22

truck to the desert right now and see

00:23

how good that new suspension is and we

00:26

probably need the truck to be able to

00:27

stop yeah so to do that we bought this

00:30

willwood front and rear brake kit along

00:32

with some other braking accessories for

00:33

a grand total of

00:36

$5,000 we're also upgrading our wheels

00:39

and tires and plan to add some more

00:41

power at some point so to handle all

00:42

that extra Force we have to upgrade our

00:44

front hubs and Knuckles as well as our

00:46

rear

00:47

end once we get our new brakes installed

00:50

we'll take it back to California City to

00:51

test them alongside our new wheels and

00:53

tires and the suspension that we

00:55

installed last

00:58

week so what do you say let's in all

01:00

this stuff so we can head to the desert

01:02

let's do

01:04

it okay quick plan of attack we'll need

01:06

to prepare our nude axles and hubs then

01:08

we'll put the calipers and rotors on the

01:10

rear axle then go to the front we need

01:12

to put a brake proportioning valve

01:13

somewhere in the engine bay and Plum the

01:15

lines from that valve to the calipers

01:17

that we installed we're going to be

01:18

putting a lot of force on these things

01:19

so we're going to try to make sure they

01:21

don't break so we've got some beefy

01:22

components here axles hubs Knuckles the

01:25

whole thing so we got Dean and Dean

01:28

knows how to do this stuff so he's going

01:29

to help us finish up in the time that we

01:31

have left we got to get cracking we got

01:34

this camberg racing rear end a lot of

01:36

the time you have to buy your brakes

01:38

axles differential and housing all

01:40

separate but cambering actually sells

01:42

these as complete packages which takes a

01:44

lot of the work off our hands we're

01:47

getting this axle all checked out make

01:48

sure our axle lengths are correct I have

01:51

these axles sitting around at my place

01:53

so hopefully they're the same thing the

01:54

odds of the axles fitting are about 98

01:58

99% as long as can use a tape measure

02:00

right we should be good so what we got

02:02

here is a 10-in Evan Weller third member

02:05

and this third member it runs what it's

02:07

called a school both axles will spin at

02:09

the same time there is no slip it's just

02:12

all power to the ground all the

02:15

time on the

02:17

[Music]

02:22

money we've got knuckles for the ranger

02:24

because they're big they're strong

02:25

they're beefy they're from a four-wheel

02:26

drive truck so they're built for heavy

02:28

duty stuff this is not a perfect bolt-in

02:31

solution though this line right here we

02:33

got to cut all this stuff off so it

02:34

works with the kit that we have got a

02:37

cutting wheel going to give that a shot

02:39

and uh just Lop all that stuff

02:43

[Applause]

02:44

[Music]

02:46

off that didn't

02:48

[Applause]

02:49

[Music]

02:54

work so uh while modifying these

02:57

Knuckles here I did go a little

02:59

overboard with the cutting wheel uh cut

03:01

in just past you know um it happens when

03:04

you're cutting 90° two ways you know I

03:06

don't know yeah dude not to you I guess

03:09

CU job's the master I would never say

03:11

that I want to fill this up it's not

03:13

structural at all so I it's not like a

03:15

safety concern it's just more of

03:16

Cosmetics I want to fill this in with

03:17

some wire some welds and then sand it

03:19

off make it look nice before we go ahead

03:21

and paint

03:23

it hell

03:26

yeah it looks

03:28

like but I'm gonna you know wait you're

03:31

already done yeah I fill it in it does

03:35

not look good Joby but uh you know a

03:37

grinder and paint makes me the welder I

today's breaking news now back to the

04:36

[Music]

04:41

ranger all right it's time to slap this

04:43

stuff together and see if we've got the

04:45

clearance we need to have

04:48

brakes oh

04:50

yeah

04:57

clears I believe this needs to go on the

05:00

back of that red anodized piece

05:03

hopefully we don't have to take it off

05:04

to do that so here we

05:08

go clears The

05:11

Hub it doesn't go over oh oh oh is it

05:15

like a little puzzle

05:21

oh that was going to suck that didn't go

05:24

that was going to really suck job all

05:26

those years playing Uncharted really

05:28

paid off that was some Adventure

05:31

puzzle this is a pretty big freaking

05:33

rotor pretty massive willwood four

05:36

piston uh caler as well I mean the

05:38

clamping force on these wheels is going

05:40

to be awesome and we need a lot of

05:42

braking power since we're putting 37in

05:44

tires on this thing that's a lot of

05:45

rotational Mass the wheels and tires

05:47

together weigh 120 lb and you know when

05:50

you're going let's say 100 m an hour

05:53

that has a lot of momentum going around

05:54

in the circle so you need to clamp down

05:56

as hard as you can and I think these

05:58

wheel Woods are going to help us get a

06:00

done just a little bit little dab will

06:03

do you just at flying some anti- Seas on

06:05

the back of the brake pads here just to

06:07

keep the system from binding up and

06:08

squeaking making noise better braking

06:10

operation that is something you should

06:12

really be doing uh on your daily driver

06:14

for sure and will only make the Baja

06:17

Blaster that much better to

06:24

drive so satisfying it's notched out so

06:26

just stays right there willwood rules

06:30

dud well noie what do we think how's it

06:33

coming all right well the rear brakes

06:35

are done they're not plummed up or

06:37

anything yeah sure yeah but the cool

06:39

stuff's done the cool stuff is done the

06:41

biggest change that we are getting with

06:42

this willwood system is that we're going

06:44

from a drum Brak system that came on the

06:46

truck stock to a disc brake system a

06:48

pretty beefy one at that job disc brakes

06:50

are pretty much better than drums in

06:52

every respect some recent Vehicles still

06:55

come with drums on the rear that's a

06:57

proven system they're cheap to

06:58

manufacture

07:00

but you can't beat a not to mention the

07:03

Ste that comes along with it that's

07:05

right buddy looks great dude thanks and

07:07

it be clear our upgraded brakes will

07:09

disperse heat better be more responsive

07:11

and more reliable however they won't

07:14

directly help us stop faster that's more

07:16

of a feature of our new

07:19

tires we got tires 37 in tall and we got

07:22

some raceline rhinos it's forged so it's

07:25

going to be super strong and it's a bead

07:26

loock to physically grab onto the tire

07:29

and keep it on the wheel without blowing

07:31

the beads off so we can run super low

07:32

pressures and get out of any tricky

07:34

situations they're going to be huge

07:35

they're going to be heavy they're going

07:36

to look great we just have to put them

07:38

together which means about a th000 bolts

07:41

need to go into these wheels so I've got

07:44

many hands boys them things are dirty

07:47

dude give me them clean

07:53

wheels

07:58

1080 that's my guy look at

08:03

that oh my god dude the

08:07

[Music]

08:08

difference wow wow wow wow you versus

08:12

the guy she tells you not to worry about

08:13

am I right all right I mean this truck

08:16

was pretty fun to wheel in a stock form

08:17

it was like pretty capable now just

08:19

seeing like the sheer size difference

08:22

gives you a really good idea of like how

08:24

capable the truck's going to be when

08:26

it's not only fully completed but even

08:28

just with the suspension system that we

08:30

have on there and these tires it's going

08:32

to be able to take much bigger bumps and

08:34

also with these really big blocky tires

08:37

here I think that River wash is going to

08:38

be uh pretty fun now let's continue with

08:41

the

08:42

[Music]

08:48

build all right so we've got a

08:50

proportioning valve here from willwood

08:51

this is a pretty nifty bit of Kit and

08:53

it's pretty simple the way it works is

08:54

it's got two inlets one for the front

08:56

axle one for the rear axle for your

08:58

brake power coming out of the master

08:59

cylinder this knob here modulates how

09:01

much brake fluid can get through to the

09:03

rear axle and by changing that amount

09:06

you affect the bias overall if you dial

09:08

out braking in the rear well you've got

09:10

more front bias if you dial up braking

09:12

in the rear you got less front bias so

09:14

it's pretty simple just got to make a

09:15

couple lines get a couple fittings on

09:17

here and then we'll be dialed

09:22

[Laughter]

09:24

in okay I'm starting to wonder if this

09:27

is the right fitting just trying to

09:29

thread in this fitting for one of the

09:31

front output lines from the

09:32

proportioning valve and for the life of

09:34

me I can't get it started I thought that

09:37

I was pretty sure this is the right

09:38

fitting but starting to think might be

09:40

wrong theme of the video the theme of

09:43

the video and all the videos and our

09:45

lives thus far we've got cool brakes but

09:48

I can't find the hardware with which to

09:50

install them so I'm going to keep

09:51

looking and uh yeah maybe have to go buy

09:54

some more

09:57

bolts so we have our our cables here uh

10:01

we've got a few of them Adam is

10:04

currently at the king of hammers he's

10:05

the one who ordered all these and

10:07

devised the braking system uh but he did

10:10

not leave us a drawing or any sort of

10:13

schematics or a heads up or you know

10:17

like hey here's a here's what I was

10:19

thinking I think we can figure it out I

10:22

think we can do it it's only breaks on a

10:25

race

10:26

car it's fine

10:31

so we're replacing our original hard

10:32

lines from the factory with these longer

10:35

braided lines they're more durable uh

10:38

and they're longer which we need because

10:39

now we have a lot more suspension travel

10:41

so our brakes are going to be further

10:43

away from the truck than they used to be

10:44

we need some extra line to make that

10:46

work so that's what these are going to

10:47

do they'll give us plenty of clearance

10:49

plenty of travel and they're very tough

10:51

so even if they do rub on something

10:52

which we're going to try to avoid they

10:54

won't immediately blow apart so it's

10:56

also going to be more resistant to

10:57

bulging which the stock stock rubber

10:59

lines would have been especially as they

11:01

get older and degrade when you put a

11:02

bunch of pressure on the brake pedal you

11:04

can bulge those lines and then your

11:06

pressure is going into the line rather

11:08

than into your brakes and slowing you

11:10

down we won't have that problem with

11:11

these no matter how hard we're pushing

11:13

on the pedal all the pressure is going

11:15

straight to the caliper to slow this

11:16

thing

11:18

[Music]

11:22

down W he saves the day again with some

11:26

fittings and lines cuz as usual we

11:29

missing a bunch of

11:30

stuff but now we're back in business

11:33

right no more trips to the hardware

11:34

store right

11:41

guys all right the brakes are officially

11:43

on the truck jooby we got bleed them and

11:45

then head to the desert for some

11:51

dessert hey it's me from the future now

11:54

before we hit the desert I wanted to

11:55

show you a new shirt that we made

11:57

specifically for the Baja blaster you

11:59

can see it's got the ranger on there

12:00

ripping through the desert and there's

12:01

even a little frog trying not to get run

12:03

over it's available in washed black and

12:06

natural and we even made a long sleeve

12:08

version for those chilly Desert Nights

12:10

and what's more we're also releasing a

12:12

new sticker and a new brown logo hat get

12:15

it all now at donut media.com and give

12:17

it the

12:19

[Music]

12:27

beans and we're back at the cctt DD what

12:30

does that stand for California City

12:32

Trophy Truck donut drum perfect we have

12:34

four different scenarios set up to test

12:36

all of our upgrades we have a straight

12:37

line speed test a braking and cornering

12:39

test a loose wash traction test and

12:42

finally a whoop section that means

12:45

jumps to see how much the weight has

12:47

affected the acceleration and power of

12:49

our truck we're starting off with our 0

12:50

to 60 test we've set up the same half

12:52

mile course here last time we hadit 34.9

12:55

seconds so we got a stopwatch here we're

12:56

going to see what Justin can do now what

12:58

do you think slow I think H yeah all

13:02

right Justin as long as you feel like

13:03

we're not about to explode uh you're

13:05

good to go we're checking it out I felt

13:07

the vibration and we're getting a little

13:09

bit of smoke so let me just diagnose

13:11

smoke oh sick okay well let us know I

13:15

guess he's got a vibration and a little

13:16

bit of smoke and he said he thinks it's

13:18

the drive shaft that drive shaft is

13:20

perilously close to the gas tank which

13:22

is one of the few things we really don't

13:23

want to rip open or have smoke yeah okay

13:27

it should just be something off the

13:29

exhaust we're good to

13:31

go okay on go 3 2 1

13:41

go he's already up the speed looks like

13:43

he's hauling look at that oh my God this

13:46

feels horrible but it feels faster

13:52

somehow 30 seconds 30.7 8 seconds so the

13:56

extra grip from the tires overcame the

13:58

added wait and got us across the line

14:00

almost 5 Seconds faster incredible it's

14:02

pretty cool something's making noise I

14:06

think that's the drive

14:07

shaft that was the scariest scariest 30

14:11

seconds of my life

14:12

[Music]

14:15

really the carrier is absolutely gone

14:18

our drive shaft support is completely

14:20

gone that carries the drive shaft just

14:22

kind of gives us some support in the

14:23

middle keeps it from doing a bunch of

14:25

this and it's not happy with the things

14:29

are at and uh uh it has left the chat

14:32

which isn't great you going to go grab

14:35

the part I'll go we'll go get it

14:38

yet here we

14:41

are got two of them not sure which one

14:43

we need one of them was a lot more

14:45

expensive than the other stupendous yes

14:48

one should work y for now this is

14:51

neither one of these is long for this

14:52

world I

14:53

think so this drive shaft is a stock

14:56

drive shaft and obviously our rear axle

14:58

differential all that is not stock and

15:01

we've got a lot more travel so we need a

15:03

longer drive shaft but we really only

15:06

need the stock drive shaft to get us

15:08

through today we just want to get

15:09

through this testing so while I do think

15:11

that even a new support bearing is not

15:14

going to solve our problems it will

15:16

hopefully get us through today that's

15:17

all I want trials and tribulations on

15:20

the

15:22

trails sounds good it looks smooth way

15:25

to go

15:27

Zach after that very fun Fiasco we're

15:30

back on the road the drive shaft is held

15:32

in place currently currently I don't

15:34

know what that beeping

15:37

is up next we've got our braking and

15:40

cornering test our new grippier tires

15:42

should let us stop faster and our new
