Stop Motion Engine Rebuild Video

August 10th, 2015 by Kyle West

Pretty awesome stop-motion video of an old engine being rebuilt. I doubt it makes a ton of horsepower, but it’s fun to watch nonetheless.

If the video embed doesn’t work, check out 11 Months, 3000 pictures and a lot of coffee on YouTube.

Audi RS4 Paintball Duel

March 1st, 2013 by Matt Gold

What’s the only way to settle a score of Audi vs Audi?  I guess you’ll just have to watch these two RS4’s and find out.

…man, what I would give to have this in traffic sometimes.

Gymkhana 5 – Urban Playground – San Francisco

July 9th, 2012 by Matt Gold

What can you say? Ken Block, Gymkhana and Hooning just never gets old. This time, they take to the streets of San Francisco reminiscent of the “Escape from…” series from years ago – except this time, it’s legal.

Formula Drift: The Grassroots Racers

June 29th, 2012 by Kyle West

Every grassroots racer should be able to relate to the guys in this video. Luckily someone with a ton of talent shoved a camera in their face and documented it – beautifully.

Of course, these lessons apply to more than just babbling about cars day in and day out. Just ask the guys of Formula Drift. We’re not talking about big names like Tanner Foust, Vaughn Gittin Jr. or Sam Hubinette. No, those guys have made it. They’re living or have lived the life of sponsorship deals and rampant success. For the rest of the field, making it to the next event means scraping pennies, taking crap jobs and yes, lots of hard work. Check out the awesome video below by 1Kind Studio to see what we mean.Zach Bowman, Autoblog

The best YouTube video I have seen all year. The new M5 should be hitting your local dealer’s inventory this month. Go see if you can take it out on a test drive like this.

Holiday Gear 2011 – Traxxas XO-1

December 12th, 2011 by Matt Gold

I have been informed that the Ken Block RC Car from last week just isn’t gonna cut it for the big Hoonigans.

Traxxas XO-1

The big boys need to play with big toys.. and in the world of RC cars, there’s none bigger than the Traxxas XO-1. “What’s the big deal about this RC car” you say? How about the fact that it hits 100 MPH. Yeah, one-zero-zero, miles-per-hour.

Powered by a ‘Big Block’ brushless motor, two 3S 5000mAh LiPo batteries and an AWD system; the Traxxas XO-1 will hit 0-60 in 2.3 seconds and continue on to 100MPH in a mere 4.92 seconds. Advanced control is provided with a remote that interfaces with your iPhone (or iPod touch) to feedback speed, RPMs, temperature and even telemetry information ensuring you have the fastest and most advanced RC car on the market.

November 10th, 2011 by Kyle West

Long time Honda tuner Jeff Evans managed to do two extraordinary things this weekend: (1) pilot his 950HP Integra to a class record 8.98 @ 167MPH, and (2) walk away from a wreck at close to that speed.

Autoblog has more details on the crash and Evans Tuning has more details on the car.

First Time Ever: Helmet Cam F1 Lap

October 21st, 2011 by Kyle West

Formula1 is my motorsport of choice. The technology packed into those cars is absolutely amazing. Their performance, nothing short of breathtaking. Since my chances of rubbing wheels with Jean Girard are slim at best, I have to settle with living vicariously through videos like this:

The BBC has just released a new Facebook app that allows you to watch full length episodes of Top Gear in your browser. Legally.

Top Gear on Facebook

The Polar Special was the only episode available when I looked, but apparently more videos are coming soon. I wonder if they will add the Tesla episode?
