Turning A Salvaged Car Into A Street Legal Race Car Part 10
What an amazing experience! This kit car is unlike anything we have ever drove. After a long process of putting pieces together we finally get to put the project to the test. This DF Goblin kit car is going to be one the fastest cars we own. Follow along and watch us put it to the test!!!

    Always remember cheap wrap is almost impossible to work with. Get some 3m or vvivid and try again. Good video, waiting for more!

    • flappy188

      u need soapy water under it, duH

    • SirWhiteCrayon

      I'm no pro, but my buddy wraps for a living and I've hung around his shop enough to learn about vinyl wrap. They're using the squeegee before pre-stretch and not using relief cuts. On curved surfaces you should only squeegee once you get the wrinkles out. If they follow instructions they can find here on youtube they would be able to wrap this thing no problem. I still think they're better off painting it nardo grey and then adding clear bra or wrapping it in Avery Real D High Gloss Carbon Fiber vinyl.

    That’s so dope looking good sounding good loving every part of this build it’s crazy 😜 man that is super cool and that grey wrap will finish it off and that wing is astounding

  • Ravel Tammeleht

    for daily use, use 1.5 deg downwards, for track use, go a bit more agressive, like 10 or such, but be aware of drag aswell :)

    • echo

      More grip never hurt!

      "No reason for Porsche to even have a rear wing" ok lol

      @Ethan STUPINDIS more that 50% rear weight, no need for a wing . No reason for Porsche to even have a rear wing. Other than it showing off.

    The new wheels are a HUGE improvement! Also, I like the rear lights you bought that allow all functions to be performed by the same thin lights without needing more. I'm surprised that they don't provide a 3rd brake light; isn't that a requirement in the U.S.?

    Awesome vid guys!! You have to wire in a led resistor on all 4 turb signals to stop the hyper flash, sick builds! You can buy em at auto zone


    I think Tomas will agree on a carbon fiber wrap, that would look sick!

  • Espen Ohnstad

    I have been watching all your builds, and I enjoy the channel a lot so thank you for making the content. Regarding the wing; flat for speed, and angled for downforce, you can also set it up with actuators so you can adjust it on the go from inside the car if you feel fancy.... ;) One thing that bothers me tough, is you guys got a bunch of track beasts, these cars are made for a track, the Corvette, the ZL1 the Viper, and the Goblin don't waste them on the drag strip.. take the Viper back to the road Atlanta, where it met the wall and became a salvage car... taking these cars to the drag strip, is like having a supermodel at home just to make dinner.... Set it up at Road Atlanta and I am sure several of the subscribers would join in, make it a Goonsquad meet, and lets trash it at the track... :)

    Great job guys!! It looks awesome and really aerodynamic!


    You may want to spend in a couple of tail light LED load resistors to bring down the blink rate down. Other than that, solid job!

  • Saul H
    Saul H

    Could have tried doing a “wet-wrap” too. The matte black flows good with the dark colors on this awesome build. Love it.

  • Kenny G Big Sky Photo Adventures
    Kenny G Big Sky Photo Adventures

    Very fun looking build. I'd paint the hood orange. It would look awesome with the blue/teal of the frame.

  • Breakwood

    Very impressive, you took a front wheel drive car and made it rear wheel, somewhat lol but still no easy task. You kids kick ass. Good job lil fellas.

  • Aman AHMED
    Aman AHMED

    If you want to keep traction you would need to put the spoiler down at a slight angle (20°-30° gradient). If you want to keep speed do 15°-20° gradient

    • bradenletsco

      A kick to the grundel says: no your wrong that wing really doesn’t do anything

    • hoodoofps - cod mobile - stimulusmoney
      hoodoofps - cod mobile - stimulusmoney

      Saying the wing doesn't do anything (esp the one they got) is like saying "the wings on an airplane don't do anything." Seriously just because you don't like the wing doesn't mean they won't function for the good or bad. Pulling anything shaped like that wing at highspeeds will produce lift, drag, downforce, etc.It may not do anything positive but don't say it won't do anything.

    • bradenletsco

      is everyone forgetting that it’s not sealed it has air flowing all through it. even with a windshield there’s hella wind coming in on the side and top theres is no real point to a spoiler on that car but it looks nice. the only downforce that he’s making is maybe the force pushing against the floor of the car but there’s still to much air going through the front getting blocked by the engine and fire wall, this car is not aero dynamic what so ever but it’s a cool ass car and who rlly cares for aero dynamics anyway i’m sure that thing would burn the stock car that engine came out of 🤷🏽‍♂️ just cause it’s light as fuck

    • Aman AHMED
      Aman AHMED

      @A.G. Rich Yes. A wing tunnel would be a good idea to test the aerodynamics

    • Simon Yousif
      Simon Yousif

      a 22°-23° is a even amount of speed and traction so that will be my opinion

  • LivэFяээ

    The goblin is sick! Looks like a blast!! You guys have the best videography on ITmores!

    I wonder how much it cost to build one off these? Looks nice 👍

  • Toby Baptiste
    Toby Baptiste

    With the rear end being light you might want a slight forward tilt for down force to help with the traction.... the flatter the faster down the straights, more forward tilt will cause drag but creates down force and traction.

  • 4x4 knucklebusters
    4x4 knucklebusters

    Hood should be wrapped in the real looking carbon fiber to match the spoiler.

    • ebrodg

      Black carbon fiber will look sick

    • Keith Frazier

      @Jesse B too bad carbon fiber is not an option for the hood with the kit.

    • Jesse B

      Na dont fake it, eveyone will ask is it real? "No its a sticker". It only adds weight.

    Taller tires in the back would look badass. Also, I would have the hood wrapped in a little darker shade of blue. Like the harness. That would make the light blue frame pop.

    Great progress, hope you wrappers don't have hurt feelings though!!

  • andydsm

    If you plan to drive the kit car in the dark part of the day, I'd highly suggest you swap those headlights with a xenon setup from The Retrofit Source (projectors, ballasts, bulbs, housings etc.) You won't regret it :)

    spray windex on surface you're covering, and squeegee it out. That eliminates creases and bubbles. Super nice project!

    • carson marshall
      carson marshall

      And on the top surface to lube the squeegee

  • memr1stive

    Satin black or gloss black. Grey won't match any other major component of the car IMO it's going to look like you bought a hood off another car and haven't repainted it yet! Also, this kind of car should really be put to the test at a track day event. There's a bunch in the spring at Road Atlanta coming up and you guys aren't too far away from there in Chattanooga. This thing was made to handle and hug curves, not go fast in a straight line. Hell let me know if you go and I'll come run with you guys!

  • Alan Muscat

    This kit car looking amazing and naughty guys. Definitely spray paint the hood in nardo grey. This is gonna go like a rocket on the drag strip helll yeahhhh

  • Joshua Western

    This thing would look sick with a custom model t type shell one off hand made. Either carbon fiber or some sheet metal panels with rivet nuts so it's all removable. But it's badass how it is.

    goonzquad I love your content but can you make your videos a tad bit longer so we can see more of your amazing content every 2 days

  • Bluejack

    I dig the hood. My first car was a VW rail buggy, back in the mid 80's when I was about 14. I saved up money raising tobacco and got a rail buggy with 4 additional sets of rims and tires, all for $350. and it ran great. Had the chrome header trumpet exhaust pipe. I had a blast with that old buggy.

    Carbon fiber wrap and rectangular headlights would look awesome

  • Craig Fotheringham

    If you want more downforce then the wing should be the steepest angle not flat

    • Saberease Era
      Saberease Era

      Larry Garry they said they aren’t tracking the car right now and that they don’t need the most down force

    • Akshat Chauhan
      Akshat Chauhan

      bro what about fluid friction it will resist accelaration if angle is too steep

    • Alrik Anderson
      Alrik Anderson

      Just think of as a airplane airbrake. If you could maybe make a handle or switch in the cab to change the wings setting to make it like a veyron but dont let it get pricy

    • goonzquad

      Larry Garry Yea that’s kinda what we thought

  • cosp_ride

    Man if those coolant hoses go while you're driving, you're going to have a jet blast of hot coolant on your neck 😂

  • robert durrance
    robert durrance

    you have to heat the wrap to conform to hood first without trying to stick it on than once its shrunk to fit correctly you can than apply it and it wont bunch up in spots because it will already have correct shape

  • PhantomPanic

    I love it but personally I would have went with much wider tires/wheels on the back.

  • Shoe

    Use soapy water between the hood and wrap next time you wrap. Should put a crabon wrap for the hood to match the wing.

    • Nuttin Bedder2do
      Nuttin Bedder2do

      @goonzquad you should add a G2(goonzquad goblin) decal/badge over carbon wrap and on wing.

    • Shoe

      @goonzquad no problem. Lay it down, squeegee out excess and throw the hood next to the wood stove for a few hours to help cure.

    • Luke Goss
      Luke Goss

      Water and heat will deff help you guys out I think you both can handle it

    • goonzquad

      Doug Davis I didnt know you could use water on this type of wrap, but thanks we’ll try it. Carbon would be sick also!!!


    That looks sick man. I love it😍

  • MickRick E
    MickRick E

    The more down force you have on the wing the more rear wheel grip you have, but the pay off is more drag and slower speed.

  • bigballzcritic

    That goblin looks fresh, I would add for night time fire and ice strip light, and yea custom decal with goonzquad imprinted logo for a wrap on the front to match the logo in the back..

  • elver gudo

  • Linus Sjöberg
    Linus Sjöberg

    Downforce is for high speed cornering. You want to remove the wing when dragracing

    • Linus Sjöberg
      Linus Sjöberg

      @jasonarap Even if that was the case, you would need downforce on the front, not the rear. Pushing the rear end down during high speed passes will only make it airborne earlier. It's basic aerodynamics

    • jasonarap

      On a normal car. But on such a light car. It needs downforce because its gonna take off

    • Broch Slanders
      Broch Slanders

      I was thinking the same. Cleetus always take the wing off Leroy when drag racing.

  • Brian W
    Brian W

    I know this is an old video and it’s already done, but I like the look of the darker hood to match the wing and mirrors.

  • Drunk Society
    Drunk Society

    when you’re wrapping you have to stretch the vinyl. use the torch to heat it up and pull it and squeegee at the same time

  • Alfred Shell
    Alfred Shell

    Usually I see them use some sort of application spray like soapy water for example then you squeegee out the air bubbles. In a few days it should dry without air bubbles. Otherwise it's too hard to do without and then ruins it like happened to you guys.

  • Boosted_347

    21:10 😂 love the vids especially Thomas but haha how can you guys keep him from running away

  • Travis Nicks
    Travis Nicks

    Put soapy water under the wrap and then Squeegee it out. But why wrap your paint skills are on point. If it were me I would color match the panels to the blue on the seat belts and put a matching pin strip on the lip of the rims . Then everything would come together.

  • Skidkev

    These guys are so inspiring!!

  • MrMikedejeuner

    the rear shock towers makes me nervous but overall a very good job !

  • Spoiled Nasty

    Gloss black hood with a Goonzquad wrap or vinyl decal over it would look sick!!! Another great option would be a carbon fiber hood wrap to match the carbon wing.

  • Mark Sill
    Mark Sill

    Good build guys. I'd make it a little cleaner by drilling a small hole in the body's tubing and run the wires through there instead of securing them with wire ties.

  • Marouxi

    Boys, Why not beat Law Enforcement to the punch! As you said this car will be a "cop magnet", so once you've the plates on it... Drive directly to the Sheriff's office with the car, enter the building introduce yourselves, show the paperwork and invite the Deputies to come look at the kit car. Once they see it, have them make out a "Field Report" stating that this car is "Street legal" and ask them for a copy. Keep that copy with the car at all times for the future stops you'll undoubtedly have. Also "INSTALL A SHOP FIRE EXTINGUISHER & FIRST AID KIT IN YOUR SHOP3 somewhere easily accessed!

    Guys! for the tail lights, try vinyl tinting the red part black or smoked. It wont change the brightness and the red lenses wont stand out as much.

    nice wing broo!!! looks amazing!! btw.. you should paint those wheels in a cheap mat black or something dark!! that would be a great touch to the look!!! very nice go-kart! jajajaja fucking awsome!! :) EDIT: jajaja i just sow the new wheels!!! i didn't expect that!! damm those wheels!!!

  • John Colligan

    You should have done the wet install with the wrap, 1 tablespoon of Dawn ultra to 1 gallon of water, wet the hood and then the decal, easier to work out the wrinkles and bubbles, I did the decals in my RS Camaro using the wet method, came out very nice

    Another great video guys! If you're going to attempt another wrap, what about faux carbon fiber? It'd match that wing fairly well. Also, I think I can speak for a bunch of car enthusiasts to suggest a quick little addition. What if you mock-up the wing from the goblin, with 2"-3" risers, on the Viper? That would look sick! Keep wrenching. ^^

    Soapy water works great for wraps... wet both surfaces... lay it down then once you squeegie out the water from under the vinyl, then the wrap adhesive sticks to the surface

  • Cataca_91

    you need to add downforce to the front as well

      Daniel Ames-Lewis

      Oh ye cause to much wait on the back it will start to lean backwards!

    • Tricklarock

      @Slartibartfast If you're thinking along those lines, then you can see how all of the things you mentioned would make the front extra unstable?

    • Tricklarock

      Oh definitely, 1st thing I thought as they unboxed the rear wing!

    • Slartibartfast

      Just my thought, but I know close to nothing about cars. All the weight is in the back already though, so it makes perfect sense just looking at the car and visualizing pressure on the wheels from gravity and wind flow.

    Gloss carbon fiber wrap the hood to match the wing 👌🏼

    • dacker71867

      Like the carbon idea! Don't like the gray

  • Tricklarock

    Great job guys... but I thought you were gonna bbq the tires once you had the new ones ?

  • Hulk5098

    Paint Matte Black definitely on the hood. It compliments the black rims and just look aggressive on the goblin. This is AWESOME build Goonzquad!!! Looking forward to seeing the finishing touches on the Goblin and painting the Viper. It definitely RIPS!!!

    Awesome job dudes. Had to toss in my 2 cents on the hood color:. Matte black all the way!

  • Taj Alhamawi
    Taj Alhamawi

    Put the wing straight it will minimizes air resistance for daily use but when you guys take it to the drag strip angle it down so that air resistance generates down force reducing the friction when launching the car

    • Taj Alhamawi
      Taj Alhamawi

      The car is lightweight you lose time from the rear spinning tires while the car is in its place and for the top speed the spoiler doesn’t have large surface area . Don’t throw 10 seconds to gain 1 second

    • Jester123ish

      Won't help off the line and the extra drag might cost top speed.
