This Cookie Contest Leaves The Baked Goods At Home But Brings A Rowdy Orange Charger

Bizarrely, this is the first time I’ve ever heard donuts (car donuts, not the kind you get from Tim Hortons or Krispy Kreme) referred to as “cookies.” Either way, I’m now both hungry and ready to spin a big, loud muscle car around in circles after watching this footage from a “Cookie Contest” in Iowa.Read […]

This Is The Honda Odyssey Race Van Your Mom Should Have Built

Gotta take the kids to school? You should stop at the track first. A collection of madmen from Honda’s Alabama plant built a humble Odyssey into a race car, and I see absolutely nothing wrong or sacrilegious about this plan. Come to think of it, every minivan would be better with a roll cage inside.Read […]

Holy Crap This High-Speed Two-Wheel Landing Actually Worked

Colin’s Crest is one of the most delightful parts of Rally Sweden. Every year, the organizers have a mini competition on the Vargåsen stage as to who jumps the farthest over one particular crazy fast jump. Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville didn’t win the Colin’s Crest Award, but his jump was insane for other reasons. Read […]

Few Things In Life Are As Satisfying As Abusing The Crap Out Of A $300 Buick

If you have the uncontrollable urge to send it over rad and possibly ill-advised jumps, nothing beats a $300 beater. With one, the Hoonigans made the absolute greatest thing I’ve watched all year: an almost 19 minute supercut of straight-up vehicular destruction that somehow doesn’t actually destroy this Buick.

Racing Your Home-Built Cars Against A V8 Supercar Is Living The Dream

Mighty Car Mods is one of the best do-it-yourself tuner channels on YouTube, having built a collection of lovable misfits that includes a Daihatsu Mira and an LS-powered Mad Max-style car. Clearly, there’s no better way to test their work than by drag racing their cars against an Australian V8 Supercar that produces…Read more… Continue […]

The Winter Olympics Could Use Some Downhill F1 Car Snow Runs

I’ve never felt that that motorsports really belong in the Olympics. Motorsports and the Olympics are good enough at being endless controversy factories on their own without combining forces, thank you very much. That being said, I’d love to see a Formula One car hoon down the Olympic ski slopes between races, as Red…Read more… […]

This Alfa Romeo Was Rebuilt As A Beautiful Off-Roader And Smashed On A Jump

One of the most beautiful off-road-style builds we’ve ever seen is this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000, which started its new life when it was dropped off a flat-bed trailer. Owners Nikita and Ilya Bridan rebuilt it into an off-road hoonmobile, which inevitably came to Hoonigan’s yard where it died as it was meant to […]

This Four-Wheel 707 HP Trackhawk Burnout Brings Rubber Scented Tears To My Eyes

You can do a burnout with a 707-horsepower Hellcat-engined Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. You can! Believe! Also, hold the truck back with a meaty tow rope. But search for the one true spirit of four-wheel burnouts deep within your soul—you know it to be true! You can truly smoke all of those thick meats!Read more… […]

Clearly The Highest Use Of A Yamaha-Swapped Smart Car Is Ripping Good Snownuts

The delightful nuts at YouTube’s Shifted Interests channel swapped a 1,000 cc Yamaha FZ1 engine into a Smart Fortwo, more than doubling the horsepower and making it a whole lot rowdier. What do you do with such a delightful build in the winter? Snownuts, duh. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

This Adorably Intense Japanese Yaris Race Is Everything That’s Right About Motorsports

Some things on this planet are just pure and good. Japan’s Netz Cup Vitz Race is one of those things. Take a zillion of the little hatchbacks that we get in the United States badged as a Yaris, and go racing. Watch, and smile. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Dakar Team Finishes The Last 24 Miles Of The Day With Only Two Front Tires

If you keep popping tires, perhaps you should take a page from the No. 321 Dakaras Toyota. These crazy Lithuanians put the two good tires on the front of their Toyota Hilux and pretended it was just a big front-wheel-drive Yaris. They went over 24 miles with only two front tires to reach the finish […]
