I used to have a Social Studies teacher back in high school that would call the “Burnout” the mating call of the asshole.
Turns out he was right… Check it out after the jump.
The Nissan Altima and the Mitsubishi Eclipse, two cars that are simply not worthy of partaking in racing of any kind. A few poor souls however feel differently and because of this decided to release their inner Ricky Bobby and Cole Trickle to the world. The results, as you can imagine, were not good.
It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye OR flips their car into a nearby lake. Now don’t get me wrong, hooning around like 4-year old boys on tricycles is one thing, but launching your car into a large body of water because you were stupid is something entirely different.
An automobile dynamometer is a machine that measures the amount of horsepower that a vehicle puts out based on the exertion of force that’s distributed through a mechanical roller. Generally these machines are built into a shop floor somewhere, but there are dynamometers that are in fact, portable. I’ve seen these contraptions at car shows, and while they are quite accurate, they look to be sketchy as hell, something that the owner of this Shelby GT500 found out first hand.
God love the internet! Even when you think you’ve seen the biggest jackasses on the planet, there’s always a new one that comes out of nowhere to trump them all. Here we’re treated to a gentlemen who is a little more hard headed than most, and unfortunately feels the need to demonstrate it for all to see.
Seriously, wouldn’t it have been easier to just roll the damn thing down?
What you are about to witness can only be described as internet gold. It’s a commercial made for a transmission repair facility in Los Angeles, and although it’s a bit on the creepy side, that doesn’t stop it from being completely outstanding. Was it done like this intentionally? Honestly, I have no idea. What I do know however is that this man just solidified himself as a full-on internet legend.
I’ve seen a lot of crazy things happen while on the road course, however what you’re about to witness trumps most of them. You see most drivers are at least aware of what type of transmission is in their car before they drive it at high speed. This guy though… this guys got no clue.
While some folks out there may find road rage amusing, I can assure you that there’s nothing funny about it. The following video shows us an irate Toyota Camry driver doing everything they can to cause an accident with a gray and red sports car. Now, unfortunately the driver of the striped car didn’t call the police, but that is exactly what should’ve be done in a situation such as this. In a day and age when dash cameras are all the rage pulling a stunt like this and getting away with it is going to be harder and harder to do. Click through and check it out.
Watching any manner of car, truck or motorcycle fly through the air is generally considered to be an exciting event. However when that vehicle weighs upwards of 17,000 lbs and comes in the form of a Freightliner Tractor, well then it graduates to EPIC. Scott Godfrey decided that he wanted to best the long distance record that was set by his little brother, so he decided to take a shot. How did it turn out? Click through to find out.
