Crazy people change two wheels while driving the car

Why stop to change your tires when you can keep driving on two wheels and have your passengers go out the car to change them as you keep driving?

WheelNavi Calculates Degree Of Turns

It's not often that we come across a gadget for which we can't possibly divine a use.

Tire Separates From Race Car, Reattaches To Race Car



If there was ever a reason to sit through a minute of Real TV build up, this is it. Many dirt track stock car races have at least a couple of crashes, it's that possibility and the Keystone Light that makes the experience interesting. We imagine more than a few of said inebriated fans couldn't believe their eyes… » 1/07/08 2:45pm 1/07/08 2:45pm
