Watch This Massive CH-53 Sea Stallion Chopper Do Loops And Rolls

Helicopter performance can be very deceiving. Large, fat and ungainly choppers can also be super-fast and highly maneuverable, even compared to their streamlined little cousins. The Sikorsky H-53 exemplifies this this truth with its massive six bladed rotor and large four bladed tail rotor. The video below shows the… » 2/01/15 1:06pm 16 minutes ago

This Is The Best Place You Can Possibly Stick A Reminder In A Race Car

Everyone knows that the only gauge that really matters in a race car is the tachometer, so why not remind yourself not to be an idiot right on the gauge? Let's be honest, the temptation for full-on stupidity is real in the heat of a race. This reminder is far more relevant than it may seem. » 2/01/15 12:30pm 52 minutes ago

Oh No, NASCAR Offended The Glutens! Over 14,000 People Can't Take A Joke

NBC just put out a brilliant ad for NASCAR that is the perfect ultra-'Murican celebration of everything hilarious and rad about the sport. However, the Internet Offense Squad got so up in arms about the ad's line about gluten that they're now petitioning for its removal. » 2/01/15 11:32am Today 11:32am

Can't We Get This Man A Car?

James Robertson is a 56 year-old Detroiter who works in Rochester Hills, MI. There is a distance of 23 miles between his work and his home. He has no car - his Honda Accord died - so he takes the bus part of the way and walks the rest. "The rest" being 10 1/2 miles each way. This man walks 21 miles each day to get to… » 2/01/15 11:01am Today 11:01am

Project Honda Logo: Tanabe NF210 Lowering Springs Review

So, Torchy's got his bug, Doug has had his Ferrari (now will have GT-R?), Stef has her Porsche, and I have my Honda Logo TS. I have no idea what the heck Matt has (probably a type of Batmobile—Mattmobile?). The others? Uh... I should ask. In any case, we love each of our very different cars and that's what makes… » 2/01/15 10:15am Today 10:15am

Where's Rally? A Map of All 2015 North American Stage Rallies

One of the complaints I hear most often from aspiring rally fans is the all too common "there's no events near me!" Last year I attempted to help fix this by creating a map of all the stage rallies in North America. Now, with the 2015 rally season having officially started with Michigan's Sno*Drift Rally (I was there,… » 2/01/15 8:35am Today 8:35am

This SR-71, F-14, F-4 Formation Shot Is An Air Combat Dream Come True

This has to be one of the coolest and the LOUDEST military aviation photos in history. No less than three Tomcats and three Phantoms are headed by an SR-71 Blackbird as they pour on the coals during a high-speed, low-level flyby over NAWS China Lake. The circumstances of how this shot came to be remain a mystery, but… » 1/31/15 5:14pm Yesterday 5:14pm

Please, Make An IndyCar Make-Up Race At Circuit Of The Americas Happen

IndyCar has been sent scrambling for a make-up race after their season opener at Brasília was unexpectedly called off, and it sounds like Circuit of the Americas may be in the running. Excellent. » 1/31/15 2:01pm Yesterday 2:01pm

Here's What The First Maybach Mercedes 4x4 Will Probably Look Like

Mustache-Benz boss Dr. Dieter Zetsche has been quoted saying a Mercedes-Maybach SUV is "most likely!" Logic dictates that would basically be a GL, soon to be rebadged as GLS, with a bit of a body stretch and a private-jet interior. Subtle, quick, and decadently comfortable. » 1/31/15 12:05pm Yesterday 12:05pm

NHTSA Re-Recalling 2.12 Million Cars, Half Of Which Are In Other Recall

The feds are recalling another 2.12 million vehicles in the never-ending airbag disaster after it was discovered that the fix originally offered wasn't good enough and airbags were blowing up in the absence of a crash. About half are in a different Takata recall and thus could send shrapnel into the faces of people in… » 1/31/15 10:53am Yesterday 10:53am

Save The Stick, But Keep The Autos Too

Ever since learning to drive stick on my 1983 BMW 320i, all of my cars have had manual transmissions, except for a Grand Caravan and my ex-cop car that weren't available with them. I'm a strong supporter of the "Save the Stick" movement. Changing your own gears is the pedal dance of the enthusiast, an art form of… » 1/31/15 10:01am Yesterday 10:01am

Feast Your JDM Loving Eyes On This Honda Civic Type R EK Wagon

Okay, so it's not actually an EK9 wagon, although that would be really, really cool. This is in fact a marriage of two different Honda vehicles which share parts: a Civic and an Orthia. And despite this being JDM as hell, this actually isn't Japan. It's Hong Kong. Still totally badass. EK WAGON, GUYS. GET EXCITED. » 1/31/15 9:00am Yesterday 9:00am

Ralph Lauren Barely Visits His Enormous Car Palace And That's Okay

Ralph Lauren's car collection is very nearly perfect. It holds gems like the 1930 Mercedes-Benz SSK "Comte Trossi" (pictured here), a 1955 Jaguar XKD, a McLaren F1 LM, and a Ruf CTR3. So when a lawsuit divulged that he only spends 30 hours a year in his garage, I was weirdly cool with that. » 1/30/15 10:05pm Friday 10:05pm
