Watch A Field Of Spec Miatas Crash Thanks To A Sandstorm Made Of Oil Dry

A car in an earlier race at this weekend’s SCCA US Majors Tour at Virginia International Raceway blew its engine, spewing assorted fluids all along this section of track. Oil dry should soak that right up, right? Sure, but when a tight pack of Spec Miatas hit the oil dry afterwards, it just added to the carnage. » 4/21/15 10:42am Today 10:42am

In Too Deep: 1987 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-16v Cosworth

On a late January evening, sitting in my new-to-me college dorm room, I found myself once again talking cars (and stuff) with some of Oppositelock’s finest, in the famed Tinychat
chatroom. Only this time was a little different. This time, I was reaching out to the best of Oppo to help me source a replacement car for… » 4/21/15 10:25am Today 10:25am

This F-15 Turns Gobs Of Fuel Into Fire During A Glorious Engine Test Run

NASA recently built a new engine thrust stand at its Armstrong facility located at the northern edge of Edwards AFB.

AMG’s Tobias Moers asks: should Mercedes build a GT4 race car?

I am almost always delighted with any comment left after columns like this, because whether you agree with me or not, you’ve taken time to read what I have written and thought it merited a reply, which is usually (but I concede not always) a reasonable indication that I’m doing my job properly. » 4/21/15 6:03am Today 6:03am

The Definitive Visual Guide On How Not To Behave In A Motorcycle Race

Let Moto3 rider Romano Fenati demonstrate nearly every single bad behavior you could do in a motorcycle race. Fenati had a bit of a beef with fellow rider Niklas Ajo during the warm-up session for this weekend’s race, not only kicking at his competitor’s bike, but later reaching over and disabling that bike on the… » 4/20/15 10:00pm Yesterday 10:00pm

There's Imperial Star Destroyers All Over Craigslist Now

Ever since the most recent Star Wars trailer came out, with its prominent, crashed Imperial Star Destroyer half-buried in the sand on some miserable outer-rim planet, rubber hoses and gaskets getting all dry-rotted, clever people have been trying to sell it on Craigslist. There’s actually been a few ads — let’s look… » 4/20/15 9:30pm Yesterday 9:30pm

Honda Imagines This Lifted Tuner Car As Their Flagship In China

This is the 2015 Honda D Concept, which Honda says “shows the direction of a mass-production SUV model” they’re already working on exclusively for China.

John Oliver's Doomsday Video Is A Hell Of A Lot Nicer Than CNN's

Way back in the 1980s, Ted Turner had CNN make a video that was only to be played at the end of the world. It was a bit melancholy, to put it lightly. A bit boring, and not exactly the sendoff we might want. So leave it to John Oliver, Last Week Tonight, and Martin Sheen to give us a much, much better one. » 4/20/15 7:20pm Yesterday 7:20pm

Which Car Would You Enter In The 24 Hours Of LeMons Out Of Spite?

Once upon a time, I had a miserable beater. Unfortunately, it belonged to my parents and got traded in when they finally realized they had spent several running 944s’ worth in repair bills. Had it been signed over to me, there was no doubt in my mind where it needed to go to die: the 24 Hours of LeMons.
