Watch The Navy's Littoral Combat Ship Get Hammered By Heavy Seas

USS Fort Worth LCS-3 hit some rough seas on its way to South Korea to take part in the annual Foal Eagle joint military exercises.

The 6x6 Defender Is Actually A Full-On Military-Grade Zombie Slayer

The Torq isn't just a self-driving, electric racer with over 1,300 lb-ft of torque. It's pointing towards a new direction for endurance racing. It's also total bullshit, at least for… » 3/04/15 7:50pm Yesterday 7:50pm

Watch A Brazilian Plane Nearly Miss The Caribbean's Most Famous Runway

This Brazilian built regional jet barely makes it to a smooth patch on the landing strip, clearing the fence at Maho Beach in St. Maarten with a razor thin margin of error.

Carbon Damage Sends Nissan Le Mans Car Home From Sebring Test Early

Nissan and Audi both used Sebring to test this week, as the bumpy, older surface of the track makes for a good representation of what to expect at Le Mans.
