Razor Crazy Cart

The new Razor Crazy Cart is probably one of the best toys to hit the market in the last 20 years. It’s obscenely fun for both kids and adults, and has the ability to make even the most hardened of individuals crack a smile and have fun. The guys at Razor also happen to be huge fans of Ken Block, and as such have created this tribute video to him and all of his gymkhana awesomeness! Check it out after the jump.

Rage Comet R: Off Road Supercar – XCAR

Posted in Cool Stuff, General, Off-Roading, Toys, Videos by MrAngry | August 29th, 2013 | 1 Response |

Rage Comet R

This is the Rage Comet R, and it’s as equally at home off-road as it is ripping around your favorite motocross track. It’s powered by a Kawasaki 1,352cc motorcycle engine that cranks out 200 hp. Pretty good stuff when you consider it weighs in at just under 1,100 lbs dry. 0-60 mph happens in around 3.5 seconds with a top speed of over 120 mph. Oh and by the way, it’s street legal… at least in the UK anyway. This is the type of road legal vehicle that enthusiasts over here in the U.S. would kill for. However since we can’t have it, you’ll just have to be content with watching the video. Click through and check it out.

Transformers

If you grew up in the 1980′s, were male and played with toys, then the odds of you owning a few of Hasbro’s Transformers were pretty good. If you were digging the Autobots then you followed Optimus Prime, if you liked the Decepticons then you hung out with Megatron. Regardless of which team you played for though, at days end we all wanted these little pieces of plastic to be real. Enter BRAVEROBOTICS, a company out of Japan (big surprise) who just constructed what is perhaps the worlds first remote control Transformer. As of right now we have no idea if these things will be for sale, but the Christmas season is coming up so if I were you I’d start sending those letters out to Santa immediately.

Playmobil Toys

Most parents know that children are attracted to dirt like fish are to water. They play in it, throw it at their friends and a days end, use it as a creative outlet. Playmobile toys perform in much the same fashion, which is why we were so thrilled that two of our childhood favorites came together in one amazing video.

Mother of All Hot Wheels Tracks

Hot Wheels Cars

When I was a kid I simply loved my Hot Wheels cars. I had hundreds of the little buggers and truth be told they help me become the car lover that I am today. One thing that always escaped me though were the race track sets. For some reason it just never seemed like I had enough track to build my visions. I would stay awake at night and dream of putting together a scaled down quarter mile drag strip or a replica of Daytona Speedway. Unfortunately though those dreams never came to fruition. Apparently though the guy in the next video had the same dreams I did because it seems as though he’s built what is literally, the coolest Hot Wheels track I’ve ever seen. We’ve got multiple loops, banked turns and more importantly, about a dozen engines to keep those suckers rolling. All in all I’d say he did one helluva’ job… I’m just sorry I didn’t think of it first.

The Most Impressive Porsche 911 Turbo You’ll Ever See

Posted in Cool Stuff, Porsche, Toys, Videos by Kurt Ernst | July 5th, 2011 | 2 Responses |

Why yes, that is a functional PDK gearbox biult from Legos...

Porsche 911 Turbos are impressive automobiles, with modern variants blending Grand Touring comfort with blistering acceleration and surprisingly agile handling. Early cars (the Porsche 930, to be exact) demanded a driver’s full attention at all times; lift mid-corner, and snap oversteer was the result. Get on the gas mid-corner, and snap oversteer was the result. Turn in with anything less than robot-like precision, and (you guessed it) snap oversteer was the result. In capable hands, the cars were amazingly quick but unforgiving, and I’d guess there are less than 100 drivers on the planet who could competently extract the last bit of performance out of a 930 without crashing.

Artist Chris Burden’s “Metropolis II”

Chris Burden Metropolis II

Being a grown up doesn’t mean that you’ve lost your love for the toys of your youth. Sure it would be a bit odd if your wife caught you playing with an old G.I. Joe in the backyard, but what if you were able to take playing with toys to the next level. I mean what if you could create the ultimate toy box right in your own home. Performance artist Chris Burden did something similar when he created “Metropolis II”, a super-sized hot wheels track that’s 28-feet wide and over 10-feet tall in his studio. With over 1,100 cars constantly circulating the tracks 18 traffic lanes, the structure is more like something you’d find in a science fiction movie than in an artists studio. There is also a plethora of fully functional railways as well as a bunch of highly detailed sky scrapers. The cost for the structure was in the millions, which, according to Burden, was exactly what “Metropolis II” sold for. Who says you can’t be a kid again…

Hot Wheels Twin Mill: HOLY FREAKIN’ MOLY!!

Posted in Best of, Cross Over Vehicle, Custom, News, Other Rides, Rants & Raves, Toys, Videos by MrAngry | June 1st, 2011 | 3 Responses |

Hot Wheels Twin Mill

The great thing about toys like Hot Wheels cars is that they have the ability to stimulate the imagination at a very young age. Cars like the Deora, the Sizzler series from the 1970′s and the original Twin Mill from 1969 have helped generations of car enthusiasts get their wings. Some of the cars, like the aforementioned Twin Mill are so cool that I suppose it was only a matter of time before they were actually built. What you are seeing here is the real life version of the original design that debuted in 1969. It comes complete with a pair of blown 502 cu inch big block Chevy’s that produce a total of 1,400 horsepower. It’s low slung, raw and the fantasy of every 11 year old kid out there. Obviously the Twin Mill wouldn’t make the best daily driver, but for a weekend cruiser, hell why not. Click through for the video.
