When your 1,000 horsepower Hyundai drift car bursts into flames, it might be a good idea to come to a stop. Otherwise the circuit’s fire safety crew has to chase you down on track, as we can see here. »
It’s in this first paragraph here that I’d normally provide some explanation of what was happening, or some witty commentary. But I can’t. Just watch. Please just watch. You’ll be happy you did.
As you can imagine, most scooter owner/operators are very interested in having the best possible exhaust note from those 250cc monsters. With exhaust pipe diameters about the size of an average drinking straw (possible boba-sized) this can be tricky. »
If you had a jet engine strapped to a truck, the first thing you should want to do should be obvious – that’s right, you’d strap a Tickle Me Elmo to a post and shoot it with screaming hot fire. »
Oh, what’s that you say? Lewis Hamilton is the 2015 Formula One world champion? He amassed the most “points?” Good for him, I suppose, let him enjoy the finest dish ware in all the land. This year’s real champ is Sebastian Vettel, who won by completely freeing himself of any fucks to give, and decided to just be… »
These cars must have been inspired by this sliding truck’s rebellion. They don’t need drivers, they’re off on their own thanks bye! »
It’s such a bummer when you fail a big test over one little mistake, like this driving student in Bellevue, Washington who apparently mixed up the gas and brake pedals one time and, uh, destroyed her driving school. »
This is H2Oi, where stanced car owners converge on Ocean City, Maryland, where they know they will be viciously and aggressively fined by the local police. The most ridiculous ticket-fest in the country has begun. »
As pointed out yesterday, you can drift anything with enough space and snow. Does this extend to RVs? Yes! Is it fast? No! »
I’m usually bad at fixing things, but that’s only because I don’t have the proper tools on hand. I don’t usually just carry around a wrench, a hammer, or anything resembling a lift. But it turns out you don’t need those things. All you need is some hot water, and your own beautiful fists. »
XKCD is one of those things you can always count on to be out there, doing the hard research we all demand. And this time it’s especially useful, since XKCD seems to have used math and statistics and other black, black magic to determine what car names would be most successful. And boy, are they good. »
Can you drift a front-wheel drive Chevy Cavalier? Normally I would say no. But what this bored dude in his backyard can do with some left-foot braking, slick grass, and a lot of handbrake has me questioning my firm beliefs. »
Yep. Just what it says on the tin. This is how you sweep the streets. With a bunch of brooms. A street sweeper.
I can’t say I’m a big truck pulling connoisseur myself, nor do I have much personal experience with the sport. But I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that maybe (I think) one of them getting in ripped in two is possibly not supposed to happen? »
The ‘worst pass of all time’ title may indeed go to this hopeless Plymouth Barracuda driver down in Australia, who loses control of his early pony car, crosses into the other lane, backs up, restarts, and then things get even worse. »
Sometimes a good hoax or lie is just fun. Truth is great, don’t get me wrong, but whether we call it fiction or fibbing, sometimes a total fabrication is just the right thing. So how about a little experiment? I made a bunch of lies in sharable-image form — and you should feel free to make your own — what happens if… »
