Changing Wheels While Driving Seems Like a Bad Idea

Changing Wheels While Driving Seems Like a Bad Idea
It’s not insane enough that these Saudi stunt drivers headed down the highway in their Hyundai balanced on just two wheels. Nope. They had to take things to another level – by changing the wheels on the car while the opposite side’s wheels held the vehicle’s weight and propelled it forward. Given how tricky the cheap jacks they include with cars can be to use, I suppose this could come in handy, but I don’t recommend trying this at home even if you could figure out how to drive your car like this.

The World’s Brightest Truck Lights up the Night

The World’s Brightest Truck Lights up the Night
If you like to off-road after dark, you need a good LED light bar. There are plenty of aftermarket options out there, and a couple of truck makers even offer them as a factory option. But I can say with a high degree of certainty that none of them are as bright as the one that rctestflight installed on a truck.

Is 35 Coats of Clear Coat Too Much?
Fresh from the factory, most cars come with at a shiny clear coating to give it a shine and to protect its painted finish. I’m not sure how many coats OEMs typically apply, but I can say with 100% certainty that they don’t use 35 coats.

Watch a McLaren Senna Do Donuts and Burnouts

Watch a McLaren Senna Do Donuts and Burnouts
The McLaren Senna is one of today’s ultimate supercars. Not only does it pack a mid-mounted 789 horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine, but it’s got the kind of aerodynamic elements normally reserved for track-only race cars. It’s also about a million bucks, and the kind of car you expect to see either meandering slowly down the streets of Monaco by some billionaire, or perhaps taking a few hot laps around the Nürburgring.

Another Batch of Awesomely Bad 1980s Car Commercials

Another Batch of Awesomely Bad 1980s Car Commercials
The 1980s were an odd decade. While they produced many iconic objects and styles which are still appreciated to this day, they also produced a boatload of bad cars. Sure, there were some needles in the haystack, but for the most part, we got dogs like Cadillac Cimarron, the Mercury Lynx, the Geo Metro, the Pontiac Fiero, and yes, the Yugo.

Inside the Jaguar F-TYPE Factory
The Jaguar F-TYPE is one of the most beautiful vehicles to be designed in the last decade. In fact, I love it so much that I bought one for myself a few years back. I’ve always wanted to visit the Jaguar factory to see how these cars are made, but haven’t been presented with the chance.

Russians Go Curling with Cars

Russians Go Curling with Cars
Curling is a game I don’t understand at all. It’s done on ice and has people sliding a stone that looks like an old iron down an icy lane. People in front of the puck use brooms to polish the ice and control where the thing goes.
