When you move into a place with a yard that isn’t mowed for you, lawn mowers become a sort of passive enemy. They sit there, reminding you that when the grass starts growing, you’ll have to spend important hours of your life cutting it regularly because we’ve decided as a society that manicured yards are superior.
The Bugatti Veyron is the kind of car you see driving around a city center at five miles an hour, at best, or sitting in a climate-controlled garage at worst. That’s what makes it so shocking to see one being used to all of its abilities: doing 1184 horsepower all-wheel drive donuts in the dirt.
One poor Jeep Grand Cherokee is going to get wrecked in this at the hands of the biggest tow strap I’ve ever seen. Dry your misty eyes, for this ZJ did not crash in vain. It died for the laughs.
Track time is usually the domain of the lightest, smallest cars you can buy, but not among the Dajiban fans. They have Dodge vans. They go on track. Here’s how they make it work.
Going up Pikes Peak on a nice day at race pace is a feat for the brave, but climbing the mountain in foul weather with poor visibility is pure lunacy. This year, Victor Kuhns was the last person to make it all the way up Pikes Peak before officials paused the race for foul weather and shortened the course, and you…
The Citroën 2CV and Méhari are delightfully rugged little cars, and as with all things, their redeeming qualities shine best through motorsport. Dirt-track motorsport. Behold the most delightful thing you’ll see all week.
The mere boundaries of water shall not deter the wild Canadian boating hoser from exploring new ground. Hinder him not with your puny forest service roads! Our intrepid hoser will find a way, eh.
The video was just titled “Rally Truck Jump.” All of those things are relevant to my interests. I’ll click. I’ll watch. Even if it’s a garbage vertical video, I’m there, dude. I’ll watch all the sweet jumps. But I certainly didn’t expect to see a vintage work truck pretending to be Colin McRae’s Subaru here. Send it!
Here’s an example of how not to make the donuts. A Dodge Charger caught fire while doing donuts for a crowd at a car meet in Anaheim Monday morning, reports KTLA. Around 50 to 100 people were there at this unauthorized meetup and standing way too close to cars doing stunts, including this one that burst into flame.
The BMW X5! Scourge of school drop-off zones! Bimmer’s big behemoth! A true German luxury crossover if there ever was one. It’s just about the last vehicle you’d expect to get sawzalled apart into a crazy open-top off-road mud buggy, but this exists and it rules hard.
Everyone remembers the Audi Quattro, as piloted by Michéle Mouton and other legends, but what of its successor, the Audi S2? Here’s a vintage clip of victory donuts that shows that the S2 is, in fact, good.
People are dumb and will only make you sad. Cars are always there for you. If I put my car in people-shoes, I can pretend it’s my friend and we’ll be best friends forever!!! Here’s how the crazy Russians at Garage 54 did just that with one of their previous weirdo builds, which works far better than it should.
Were you also thousands of miles away from the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally and therefore unable to go? Thank goodness the internet is here to fulfill our need to see cars send it with a big jump megacut, then.
Here’s a good way to keep pesky bumps in the road from ruining your day: fit bigger tires! A smattering of take-off parts from desert racing teams doesn’t help, either. Bonus: you can even take your kid along for the ride in this sweet desert 2004 Chevy Silverado prerunner.
If you’re missing your daily dose of eye candy, the mad Latvian drift filmmakers at Robyworks—with the help of some drone racing friends—are here to help.
People have been stuffing bigger batteries and more powerful drivetrains into little toy cars for decades, so it’s about time someone stuffed a tiny little gas engine into it. The mad geniuses at YouTube’s Grind Hard Plumbing Co. adapted a 240-cc engine from a Honda CRF230 dirt bike to fit in a Barbie Mustang using…
Dirt-happy racers love to use the phrase “press on regardless,” but the inaugural Americas Rallycross event whipped out an epic display of that mantra in practice thanks to Timo Scheider. Scheider’s hood flopped up and blocked most of his windshield during most of one race, but did that stop him? Nah.
Just look at this incredible almost-jump. This UTV rider definitely had a landing, but I’m not sure it’s the landing he wanted.
Charaf-Eddin Ait-Tales is the kind of Formula One fan who knows most of the turns by heart, and is so into it that he’ll shut down his physio practice just to catch the press conferences. He’s been a fan his whole life, even after he went blind at the age of 20. F1 surprised him with a ride-along in their two-seater…
