I cannot help but cherish and adore this demo video for what appears to be an interesting and innovative two-wheel drive collapsable off-road motorcycle from Russia. Critically, it is set to Twisted Sister’s 1985 classic “The Price.”
You know how in movies like Fast and Furious, cars somehow manage to explode in unrealistic, over-the-top displays of cinematic excess? Sometimes it happens in real life. In Russia.
There are so many dump trucks and pavers and road rollers paving Moscow’s Tverskaya Street in this time lapse that it looks like a massive swarm of machines have taken over Russia. The smaller road rollers look and move a lot like the little planes that launch from the mothership (which, in this case would be the dump…
There’s a lot of evidence that suggests Russia was behind the Democratic National Committee hack, and that least some of the emails may have been manipulated part of a military campaign of misinformation. But all that evidence comes from private security contractors. Edward Snowden thinks that if the Russians hacked…
Now is the time of watching old simple strong good normal Toyota sedans vigorously engage in abnormal activities of off roading! They test their differentials.
New evidence shows that information from the Democratic National Committee hack might not be something you should trust: it appears to skirt a strange new territory between hacking and deliberate misinformation, and it all centers on an equally new military strategy from Russia.
When you think of Soviet vehicles, what word comes to mind? Probably “shoddy.” Or “terrible.” Or “unreliable.” Maybe “garbage.”
When you’re the only Tesla owner in your entire city, in your entire region, things can get strange. For instance, your regional utility can end up building a charging station just for you alone.
Yesterday, a video surfaced that depicted a chrome-wrapped Lamborghini Murcielago spinning out on a sodden Russian highway near Moscow. It looked super fake (chrome wrap does that). But it was real. It was Something That Happened.
Zero-gravity 3D printing is already operating on the International Space Station, but it can only crank out dinky pieces of plastic. Russian engineers think their space printer can do better—by creating viable replacement parts for the station on the station.
If I’m ever in an accident, the first thing I do is make sure everyone involved is safe. This does not appear to be standard policy in Russia.
I found myself one late August evening in 2008 listening to the tick-tick of various components and liquids contracting as they cooled, watching the shimmy of heat coming from the hood of my black on black 2006 Chevrolet C6 Z06 after a thoroughly abusive and soul-releasing drive through the canyons of Manhattan. On…
It sounds very straightforward when he describes it. There was no good road leading from his town to the nearby border; he was a retired builder; he sold everything he had to build the road himself, building it where his government would not.
Ruslan Shamsuarov, the 20-year old son of the Vice President of Russia’s second-largest oil company Lukoil, suffered no consequence for his involvement in a police chase that was broadcast live on Periscope. His excuse being that his friend who was driving the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG did “not want to appear weak.”
Look, if you won’t keep the Russian on Red Bull’s main Formula One team, the Russians might just replace it with an entire Russian team. Mother Russia cannot be held back. Mother Russia is strong like bear.
With the planned June 4 date coming up fast, Formula E had to cancel its Moscow date, shrinking the season down to ten rounds. The reason? Road closures, or more specifically, the inability to get them.
American sailors aboard the USS Donald Cook got one intimidating air show over the Baltic Sea yesterday. Russian swing-wing Su-24 Fencers made multiple simulated attack runs on their ship. The maneuvers were said to have been “extremely aggressive” and so low that wakes were kicked up in the water below the jets, Navy…
One of Russia’s most advanced attack helicopters, the Mi-28 “Night Hunter,” crashed today while operating in Syria. Russian officials say that the helicopter was not taking enemy fire at the time and went down due to technical reasons, killing both crewman onboard. A team is reportedly on the scene trying to determine…
You have to be brave to look at an Aston Martin DB9, what many people hold to be one of the greatest examples of automotive design ever, and think you could do a better job. Unsurprisingly, a design studio in Russia thinks just that, and I actually don’t hate it.
