How To Apocalypse-Proof Your Truck For Sweet Desert Jumps And Still Keep The Kid Seat

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. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Watch Ken Block’s Test Run Of His Excellent Ford Escort Cosworth And Know True Peace

What is the key to happiness? I don’t know, but my best guess is that it would involve vintage rally cars, like the Group A Ford Escort Cosworth Ken Block plans to rally this season. I can’t get enough of this car, and now there’s footage of it blasting down stage roads. Really good footage. […]

Watch A 1,000 HP Nissan GT-R Slay Its 21-Inch Tires

One of the most entertaining drivers in Japan over the past few years has been Kazuya Taguchi, an Up Garage employee (kind of like super Autozone) who also runs in Formula Drift. Now he’s come stateside in this 4.1-liter R35 Nissan GT-R, which makes more power than you’d ever need.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

These Nuts Are Building A Caster-Wheeled Drift Cart Out Of A Volvo V70 Chopped In Half

The mad scientists at Hoonigan are big fans of caster-wheeled Crazy Carts—the cool little toys made for drifting—but Crazy Carts just don’t have enough power. So, they’re taking a front-wheel-drive Volvo V70, hacking it in half and making their own giant Crazy Cart for lunatic grown-ups. Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

More Proof That Off-Road Builds Make Every Car Better

Everything is cooler in off-road trim—even the 420,666,069th Mazda Miata you’ve seen on the internet, or a Porsche 912 that was already cool. The masterminds behind the Gambler 500 recently dropped by Hoonigan for a good ol’ fashioned hoon-off, and needless to say, everybody wins in their battle of cool cars catching…Read more… Continue Reading […]

Here Is A Big Smoky Reminder That I Need A Limited-Slip Differential

Y’all got some of that LSD? The limited-slip differential is perhaps the best drug known to hoon-kind. It’s the trick tech that keeps your burnouts from being sad one-tire fires. Once you drive one, you’re hooked. The Hoonigans released this absurd, nearly 45-minute megacut of their best burnouts, donuts and stunts,…Read more… Continue Reading at […]

Making Your Most Hated $200 Crapcan Into A Giant Go-Kart Is The Best Revenge

The Hoonigans bought a lousy $200 Miata with questionable mods and history, but never quite fell in love with it. It wasn’t fun to rip around their yard and took too much time away from their first love, a beat-up $350 BMW E36 named Shitcar. So, they made it into a “deathkart,” which is the […]

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.

Tidy Donuts Are So Much Harder Than They Look

It’s easy to be tricked into thinking that ripping a sweet, tidy donut in the Hoonigans’ tiny parking lot is no big deal when so many guests on their Daily Transmission reels make it look so easy.

I Am Shocked By How Much I Like This Electric Toyota AE86 Drift Car

“Whatever it takes to keep interesting cars on the road” is how I approach the question of whether or not it’s okay to do electric conversions for older cars. Some purists hate it, and it’s true it’s never really the same as an internal combustion engine, but it gets the job done. And electrification has […]

Ken Block’s New Race Car Is A Perfect Ford Escort Cosworth Group A Rally Car

If you thought Block was done with Ford when Hoonigan pulled out of World Rallycross, oh no. Ford’s not going to give up that PR-and-tire-smoke machine that easily. Now we finally know what Block’s future plans involve: one of the most insane cars of all time: a 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth Group A rally car. […]
