I hope you were lucky enough to catch the Perseid Meteor Shower last week. If you were watching it from the Spanish island of La Palma, a few of those streaks might have actually been these maniacs in wing suits.
Want to attempt the world’s longest off-road truck jump? Turns out all you need is to convert your crappy old carbureted engine to fuel injection, put a little more rebound in the shocks and pump up the tires. You will need to start with a scratch-built racing rig though.
The Ferret Scout Car is an armored and turreted war machine designed in the 1940s. More than 4,000 copies in some 60 variants are said to have been made, and few of them are even still in military service. But only one has a Chevy V8, long-travel shocks and a freaking winch cannon. Oh, and a racing champion at the…
Dubai is equal parts engineering marvel and rich person playground. It’s where drones race pricey supercars and skateboarders rent out and drain entire waterparks for their amusement. It’s also where BASE jumpers Chris Douggs McDougall and Jimmy Pouchert shot themselves 300 feet into the air just for the fuck of it.
Which one of these crazy people would you rather be? The person making a low pass on a stunt plane knowing if you fly any higher you’re definitely going to end up in prison? The dude doing a backflip on a motorcycle while jumping over that stunt plane? Or the totally exposed lunatic walking on a tight rope as the…
You may know that the El Camino style car-with-truck-bed (“ute”) is the unofficial national vehicle of Australia. It’s common to see Ford and GM variants dialed in for huge performance. It’s not common to see a Suzuki Mighty Boy at all, let alone one this... angry.
Yeah, you know you can’t. Don’t even try it. Just watch.
Yes, a Guinness World Record for the “fastest motorcycle wheelie on ice” exists. It stands a little over 128 mph, to be exact. And now Cecil “Bubba” Myers is putting screws into the tires on his Kawasaki H2 to try and beat it.
The “Red Bull Air Force” is a real thing. Specifically; a team of lunatic aerial stunt athletes with an unlimited budget. Want to watch them try and outdo each other?
“NASCAR used to just be better,” old people who are very annoying and probably just liked mustaches and cocaine and are definitely right tend to say. But how correct could they possibly be? Well, to put it into perspective, people used to get into horrific motorcycle crashes before the race even started, and that was…
The premise here is simple. Take a farm buggy, completely redesign it to haul ass and hit jumps, put a talented driver with balls of steel in the seat and cut him loose in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Here’s RJ Anderson in XP1K3.
These crazy Germans have packed a tiny engine into a case of beer, strapped a set of handlebars to it and combined with some “braking shoes” have created a terrible contraption that looks as fun as it does dangerous.
The StuntFreaksTeam guys from Finland are absolute mayhem on wheels. The only time they’re willing to ride with any of that whole “traction” thing is when they’re up on one wheel. Start your Monday off right, by wishing your week was over so you could go ride.
So apparently there’s a bunch of super cool people with a junk yard. Not only that, but these particular super cool people film themselves going absolutely demolition-derby-dooda on some cars, mainly behind the wheel of an unstoppable Volvo wagon.
Robbie Maddison has ridden the mad offspring of a dirt bike and a surfboard over the waves of Tahiti and into eternal glory. This stunt is so extreme it’ll make you sweat Mountain Dew and fart out a Metallica riff. Don’t take my word for it, just watch the thing right here!
After too many years of crappy computer generated car stunts, practical effects are coming back. Mad Max set the tone this year and the new Mission Impossible flick is carrying the torch into the summer. Here’s a brief look behind the scenes at how Tom Cruise and Co. are bringing real driving back to the big screen.
Sure, you can jump a school buses with a motorcycle, but what about jumping motorcycles with a bus? One brave stuntman asked this question in the most testing manner possible.
If it something looks mildly doable with a vehicle on paper, some crazy person will certainly go for it. Here are ten of such lunatics.
There’s stunting, and then there’s stunting. Soaring through the air, doing a barrel roll or a flip, or generally just jumping canyons on a motorcycle, stunts are an integral part of the vehicular experience. Even if you don’t always stick the landing, the craziest is always the best.
At the June 13th Monster Jam “Path Of Destruction” show, driver Tom Meents attempted to pull off the first Guinness World Record certified monster truck front flip. He came up short on a technicality, but put on one hell of a show anyway.
