Watch A B-1B Refuel And Thank The Tanker With A Gorgeous Burner Break

Swing-wings, a sleek and flowing fuselage, and four big GE-F101 turbofans pointing out the back: the B-1B’s silhouette is ominous to say the least. That silhouette is exactly what a tanker crew saw after refueling the “Bone” from their KC-135R Stratotanker, as seen in the video below.… » 8/01/15 3:01pm Today 3:01pm

The McLaren MP4-12C's Doors Are Assholes

In case you haven’t looked at a calendar in a few years, it’s 2015. This means that exotic supercars that were $250k in 2012 have now depreciated down to about $155k. They are great buys if you have the cash and, with the 12C, enjoy looking like a moron while trying to open a car door that doesn’t have handles. » 8/01/15 2:42pm Today 2:42pm

Only Watching The Battle For First Is Missing The Point

Here’s a shot of one of the looniest on-track battles I’ve seen on a race track in a long, long time. It was from last weekend’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race at Lime Rock, and these Caymans were going at it like their lives depended on it. Neither car was going for the win. No, this was the battle for … » 8/01/15 2:31pm Today 2:31pm

Lifestyles Of The Rich But Not Necessarily Famous

One of the best track days at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) since the track was built was the one held by Corsa Vita. As usual, when they showed up at COTA, I drove back into the pit lane area, loitered, picked my nose, looked confused and wandered around aimlessly. In the process of doing so, I came across some… » 8/01/15 1:36pm Today 1:36pm

A car and drones spinning around in a circle is a fantastic light show

Here’s a really cool video that’s a little bit trippy and a lot of bit fun. A car and a fleet of quadcopter drones are outfitted with lights and then made to dance and spin and move around while a camera captures them. It’s light painting but with a car and drones as the paintbrush. » 8/01/15 10:27am Today 10:27am

Being a combat engineer in the army is really bad ass

Being an engineer isn’t usually associated with being a bad ass. In fact, it’s probably one of the gigs furthest from badassery! But here’s a job description that’s totally bad ass: you and your team go into combat zones and build or demolish things while people are shooting at you and looking to kill you. That’s a… » 8/01/15 10:16am Today 10:16am

How We'll Find Out If the Discovered Plane Wreckage Is Part of MH370

It’s been nearly a year and a half since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared and investigators finally have their first big lead in the search.

It's Now Just Barely Possible To Get A Free Tesla Model X

If a wild, crazed South African runs up to you, screaming about visions of the future, tubetravel, and a free Tesla Model X, we’re hear to tell you that you should believe him. Maybe. Hopefully. But in all seriousness, Tesla’s said it’s actually prepared to give you a free Model X, if you meet the right conditions. » 7/31/15 10:00pm Yesterday 10:00pm

So what have you been doing with your summer? Hanging with friends, maybe taking in a track day or two? Dani Pedrosa has been doing some of the same during the MotoGP break. Except he’s got cooler friends, better tracks, and the entire Luc1 team at his disposal. And naturally, they made a video.
