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.
Besides a bit of YouTube fame, it’s hard to say why stuntman Damien Walters challenged himself to perform a daring backflip over a speeding Formula E race car—which he couldn’t actually see coming. It’s a stunt more impressive than anything you’ll see in a Hollywood movie because there are no wires, and no computer…
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.
Backflips, I get. You launch in the air, you tilt backwards, and you flip. Front flips are a whole other story. You launch in the air, you tilt forward (which is downward but you’re still going up), and then you flip? Crazy talk. And this triple front flip from Ryan Williams? Definitely more than three times the…
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.
Here’s a wild video of Richard Hammond getting strapped onto a plane as it takes off and flies in the air and does crazy aerial tricks for Top Gear. It’s the most ridiculous type of roller coaster a person could possibly ride and Hammond is literally holding onto his butt cheeks throughout the entire ride. Fun stunt!
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.
Monster truck driver Tom Meents pulled off a double backflip tonight at Gillette Stadium, something which is apparently a pretty big deal (Meents failed on his previous three attempts) and looks pretty cool, regardless. Like most Monster Jam events, it’s another example of destroying an automobile in the most…
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.
