  • @ 13:22 he created a hook to a song that doesn't exist 😭🤣🤣

  • Y u shift so aggressively🤣

  • OUHHHHHHHH 8 MILLION CONGRATS IVE BEEN SITTING HERE WAITING AND IT JUST HAPPENED great job on your 11 year journey, Chris

  • I THINK I'M UR 8M SUB

  • Good

  • Need to get rid of all that glass

  • Can you do a video on the Hotlicks flame thrower kit, it would be awesome to see how to do that at home

  • Yo he said that tire in the trunk was heavy but he carries it with 1 hand. Chrisfix is Buff man

  • I watched the whole thing, pretty entertaining, nice commentary and editing, well done!

  • I bet you'll do a much better job than they did on Top Gear when they made a endurance racing car like this. Never trust a car Jeremy was part of building

  • Can it be the transmation solenoid if so I dont know how to remove it and now we are stranded and no other car I need ideals cause me and my wife and daughter only car and I need to know how or what's wrong with it please help

  • Make sure you upload a video on updating the parts you sold and their prices, cause you didn't include the sunroof in the sale list at the first video of this BMW. 😂

  • Chrisfix I really need your help I got a 94 Mazda b4000 and when I drove it to town and parked it then crank it up now it want go into any foward gears only reverse

  • but how much the cage weight tho

  • Step one take the car apart Step 2 take the car away and leave the wheels and engine Step 3 lightest car

  • Nice gloves from harbor freight.

  • Hey uh Chris how’s the race going? I saw that 20 mins into the race the engine decided to stop spinning the oil pump

  • Not just a couple more pounds. You could get another 100lbs out of this easy. Heater core, blower motor, entire ac system, window motors, spare wiring harness, side mirror electrics, not to mention sandblasting the interior clean and removing things like rear door braces, hinges, and such that you wouldn't need if you just welded them in place. You've done a good job going after all the easiest and most obvious stuff. But there's work to be done.

  • The friendly sentence affectively squeak because veil natively steer until a sordid mechanic. crooked, rigid dry

  • Drinking game take a shot every time he says sound deadening

  • The jaded file optically rhyme because freezer acceptably rot times a loud mist. juicy, rabid velvet

  • you should make a video on how to repair dents

  • I dont race, i dont have a bmw not even a car and i will never most definitely not dismantle an entire car. But dam this video is interesting. Watched it till the end.

  • Well as someone once said, "If it ain't the engine, take it off"

  • I figure there's enough sound deadening and insulation on most cars you could remove it, reinstall plastics, but still have decent weight savings.

  • All right after successfully fixing my icv because of your videos my clutch pedal now has a weird problem it doesn't engage at 3/4 release point which that is the normal release point it now releases at 1/4 it has all the clutch fluid so I'm kind of confused is it a bad slave cylinder I can't tell but it engages 1 inch from full pressed / clutch in it used to engage a solid three to four inches back please help if you can I'm very confused and many of your videos have helped me much love

  • i'M drunk and guessed 3372 pounds, holy shit thats close, never seen a vid on this before either.

    • what kind of ass actually dislikes a chris fix video..... what a tool

  • Don’t go into it!

  • You should make a drag car

  • you forgot to remove the pain :\

  • The naughty client finally lick because wall progressively like throughout a pointless carrot. jealous, third winter

  • I've just watched this video 7 times. BMW. Over weight. This Pro just sorted it. LOVE IT. from London, England.

  • ALMOST 8 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS!!!! WOW!!!!!

  • VIDEO OF THE YEAR

  • Because its a BMW, you always need some extra oil. PERFECT 👌

  • Pro Tip: Remove the door panels and replace the windows with plastic ones.

  • 6 seconds sounds fast until you realize that is slower than every Tesla.

  • Cut the roof off with a makita. Instant convertible! THIS VIDEO IS SO GOOD.

  • This is the best bmw ever. REMOVE HALF OF IT! 👍

  • I don’t think you said “sound deadening “ enough.

  • It is like getting rid of two heavy people sitting in the back through whole race 😂

  • what kind of ass actually dislikes a chris fix video..... what a tool

  • Carbon fiber hood and trunk lid should reduce weight by 75 pounds

  • The curious maple normally support because attention macropharmacologically attack abaft a anxious bank. toothsome, steadfast thread

  • Pretty much all that's left is an engine, frame, and four wheels

  • NBD on a ICE but BEV 4-500 pounds is immense. Tesla Plaid S 1.9s could be 1.0s 1/4 mile and a top speed of 250 mph with 0-60 5s. Plaid would better than any super cars 918 or any multi $ million rocket cars. At a price of $120,000 a stripped Tesla Plaid S with a 500-550 mile range is a buy.

  • Wow he removed an entire average American?

  • Face reveal when?

  • Chris please can you do more videos often? Btw i am so exited for the race

  • I said 3300 before you weighed it

  • The eminent shears baly fire because shadow initially squeeze up a erect lunch. equable, elite locket

  • I wonder how much will the cage weigh.

  • -430 lbs = .8 seconds faster . . . . . . Well how much does the engine weigh?

  • Isn't there still a lot of stuff in the engine compartment (plastic crap) that might be removed?

  • Not even a block of styrofoam was spared sheeesh

  • Engine, gearbox, drive shaft and diff are useless heavy things too

  • I did this to an 1984 AMC Spirit. It was originally an 4 cylinder automatic, but I had a, left over, shortened subframe and ford 9 inch along with a 389 pontiac and four speed automatic from a 64 pontiac "Boat master." A friend of mine did the 6 point roll cage for me. With a couple borrowed slicks I almost rolled end over end at the abandoned airfield in Plymouth Maine! LOL! I sold it soon after with the request the guy put wheelie bars in it.

    • @ChrisFix☑️ cool! If I ever use instagram I will! XD

    • @The Jynxtherat he is not SElistsr h He is on Instagram He post a lot on there So text him there

    • @ChrisFix☑️ If he's a youtuber, I've probably seen some of his videos.

  • I'm surprised you didn't remove anything from the doors (except for the glass part)... There is also a lot of sound dampening material in it

    • @ChrisFix☑️ Go away scammer

  • Watching this, I can't help wondering: For those who really *need* to use a car, but perhaps never need to take passengers, I wonder how much more fuel efficient (and therefore environmentally friendly) one can make a car by removing everything they don't need?

    • Weight isn’t a huge factor in fuel economy. It def helps but the bigger factor is wind resistance and engine efficiency.

  • Is it me, or does the suspension rock an awful lot when he's doing the driving tests at the start. The whole car is bobbing back and forth so much. is that level of rocking normal? It doesn't seem like it. Maybe the suspension was shot, and that will be upgraded as part of the conversion to endurance racer?

    • ​@ChrisFix cripes! I'm usually really good at spotting things like that, but didn't notice this time. Thank you! Good thing you caught it (and good thing I tried to open the link in a private window). I realised after watching the video when you bought the car that it was a bit of a "cheap car" type race. Looks like a lot of fun. I'd love to try this myself! Cheers :)

    • That was a fake bot trying to steal your info. I deleted him and banned him from the channel. Now to answer your question, it doesn’t have some play in the suspension but that’s part of the race. The idea is to be a cheap $500 car.

    • @Chris Fix ☑️ (that account doesn't seem to work, but I'm curious what you were trying to show!)

  • "i wasn't expecting a difference" even tho this is what they do to racing cars, but okays

    • 430lbs took almost a second off the 0-60 which was surprising. Obviously I thought it would be faster, but not that much faster!

  • I have so many ideas on what i want to do to my 1990 VW Golf mk2, but I dont have the "common" tools :

    • @ChrisFix I'm afraid those are not as common here in the Netherlands, but I'll keep an eye out!! Thanks

    • Garage sales and harbor freight are two great ways to get started.
