Build & Battle 3: Gymkhana GRID! Chevy Camaro vs Nissan 350z Faceoff EP.1

  • Published: 07 November 2019
  • Welcome to Build & Battle Season THREE: Gymkhana GRID! This is big stuff right here. We've never attempted a GRID build in-house here at Hoonigan, so what better time than now. In one corner, we've got a familiar face: Josh Mason, along with teammate Alex Grimm building a 3rd gen Camaro into competitive GRID car. And in the other corner, we've got team NYC: Suppy and Jamo, two of the East Coast's finest builders, stuffing a Honda K series into a 350z.

    East vs West, import vs domestic, turbo VS N/A. All with a big race at the end, of course. This should be goooooood.

    Big thanks to all the Build & Battle Partners!

      Gymkhana grid? Unless they put Sad daddy Braddy spec LS in there... the z will have this all day long. Watching the turd go round will be like watching a hippo trying to get up a muddy bank. Way to heavy very poor traction and worse weight distribution

        Why the hell is he building a 3rd gen Camaro if he knows nothing about them! There is an enormous aftermarket for them! Many, many companies make suspension kits for them. As far as angle kits, there is a few garage builders that make angle kits. Also that rear axle is complete junk! A new ring and pinion isn’t gonna make that 10 bolt survive. It would be cool to see them retrofit an IRS into the car. I know Heidts makes an IRS kit for the 3rd/4th gen F-body, but that would take up most of the budget. If anyone else were building that car, they would of got the disk brake components from a junkyard! There is hundreds of those cars at junkyards. They should of Googled the car before they tried talking technical about the car lol.

                                Next build topic you should do a poll on either 1.Educational and like fake and easy looking or 2.Reality and actually showing a process of a build. Like if you agree

                                                My guess is that the Honda engine is either an f20c or a k20
