At first glance, Grind Hard Plumbing Co. may not seem like it would be the name of a YouTube channel run by a "couple of friends who build crazy cars and contraptions out of a small garage." It sounds more like a place that you'd call if you had a leaky faucet or something.
But, make no mistake. The guys over at GHPC are next-level modders that have come up with some wild creations over the last couple of years. In one of their videos, they took a Supercharged Yahama RX1 snowmobile (which is probably working with around 200 horsepower), slapped some tires on it, and let 'er rip around some backyard trails. How awesome is that footage?!
If that video didn't inspire your inner off-roader, then I don't know what to tell you. It looked like a blast kicking up dirt in that tricked-out Yamaha. And, who said snowmobiles were just for the winter?
The Grind Hard Plumbing Co. definitely crushed it with that one, which isn't that surprising, if you take a quick look at the team's résumé.
So far we have put a Honda dirt bike engine in a power wheels toy Ford Mustang Barbie car, chopped a dirt bike frame to build a snowmobile engine powered off road scooter, hotwired an abandoned Toyota Tacoma and turned it into a rock crawler/4x4 offroader, turned an iconic BMW E36 coupe into a rally truck, did a rv/bus conversion and built a fully caged convertible BMW E46 drift car.
We can't wait to see what kind of crazy ride these guys churn out next!
