Hey, remember when Ken Block turned his stage rally Mk2 Ford Escort into a tarmac-spec Gymkhana car? Yes, that was yesterday. Now watch it shred tires like a beast with Formula Drift pro Ryan Tuerck at the wheel.
“Forever” might be a slight overstatement, but not even popping the tire stops this burnout. Nope! They whittle the wheel of this $300 special down to the nub. Behold, the very essence of “hold my beer and watch this.”
Jumping a car with another car — how hard could it be?
The Ford Focus RS is a wonderful, wonderful thing — a 320 horsepower, AWD bruiser Escort Cosworth of a car. It is a hooligan's car, right down to the drift mode.
The huge storm pretty much missed the greater New York City area last night and things turned out to be much less serious on the ground than preached on the airwaves. So here's a guy pulling some sweet T-T-T-Tokyo Dorifto action behind a live news report.
If you eagerly await several feet of snow in New York City for donuts and other hoonage opportunities, be warned: your ass may get arrested.
Let us celebrate the reckless, the wild, the self-destructive, the moronic drivers of 2014 so that we may never have to try their stupid stunts ourselves.
"Aston Martin On Ice" is being revived for this winter. That's not a theatrical spectacle so much as an amazing winter driving school for rich people. For $2,500 "and up," you can whip their spectacular sports cars on an ice course in Colorado, and let somebody else deal with the Check Engine light!
This isn't just some guy whipping donuts in an orange Lamborghini Gallardo; he's preparing to turn it into a rally car.
There are two good reasons why you shouldn't try street drifting and I will outline them with this video as an illustration.
Watch this video if you've ever looked at a parking lot and said, 'hey, I bet I could drift my car here! Nothing could possibly go wrong!'
A missile car is what happens when you build a drift car too nice to thrash with willful abandon on a track. You get the beater-iest beater that will spin a wheel and go to town. This is how Europe gets that done.
My desire for an old Toyota Tercel burns strong, perhaps even stronger after watching Toyota itself hoon the crap out of one of their '80s 4WD station wagons.
With enough throttle, you can drive a snowmobile across water. With enough of a ramp, you can even jump one into a river. This can only lead to one conclusion
Ryan Tuerck: women want him, men want his access to private motocross tracks, a large number of beater Nissans, and a professional Formula Drift seat in an 800+ hp Toyobaru. Here's how his summer is going, in case your jealousy-meter was running low.
...because there may well be some cops around, you just can't see 'em.
Tires squeal. A cloud of dust gently rolls over the car at its point of impact. Bits of grass and dirt fling into the car. Ladies and gentlemen, the track "off." Here's over eighteen minutes of offs for your viewing enjoyment.
Formula Drift pro Ryan Tuerck's YouTube show is coming back next week, and it looks like season 3 is going to be a banger.
"I got another oil pan, I got another engine... I got another car if we need it!" — when you're this prepared, why not go four-wheeling in an Audi S8?
Watch this video and tell me you're not in love with "Taz Racing," which has loony Brits taking dinky little Fiat 126s and stuffing twin-cam Toyota engines and Chevy V8s inside to create the cutest little dragsters. But damn they're fast, too.
