Grass Kart Racing

When I was a kid my father built me a go-kart out of wood, a few wheels from the hardware store and a piece of rope. It was a blast of a ride and as a young kid, the fastest thing I’d ever been on. It seems that fznowadays though home built rigs like that are few and far between, which is why I got so excited to see the following video. Sometimes all it takes is a hill, a little ingenuity and the will to go fast.

Motorcycle Fails

Loading a motorcycle into the back of a pickup truck, van or even onto a trailer can sometimes be a bit of a task. I used to do this on a daily basis back in my track days and I’d be lying if I said I’ve never had a mishap. The following video takes us through 10 loading fails that could’ve and should’ve been avoided.

BTW – if someone is filming you, that’s a dead giveaway that you’re going to screw the pooch.

Plymouth Fury

The 24 Hours of Lemons is a race series here in the U.S. that pits $500 cars against each other in a test of speed and endurance. Most competitors go the light and quick route by showing up in an old Mazda Miata or an old 3-Series BMW. However there are those (like the guys from RoadKill) who decided to go a different route. Instead of light and fast, they chose heavy and slow by way of a 1973 Plymouth Fury. Check it out after the jump.

Off Road Racing

It’s finally happened. I must now figure out how to go off-road racing and this video is the reason why. It has finally convinced me that off-road desert racing is by far the coolest form of motorsport there is. Sure F1, WRC and even MOTO GP all provide a massive thrill factor, but if we’re being honest, there is nothing, and I mean NOTHING cooler than watching a full-on trophy truck run through the bumps at over 100 mph. You want awesome? Well then, here it is! Check it out after the jump.

Hurricane Hell Drivers

Ever since the automobile was created, there have been those out there who have wanted to crash it. Throughout the years stuntmen and women have done things with cars, bikes and trucks that not only defy our imaginations, but make us fear for their safety. The Hurricane Hell Drivers were a group of daredevils that would traverse the country putting on a stunt show spectacular for all those to see. Even though their antics ranged from death-defying to downright stupid, that didn’t stop them from being one of the most sought after attractions throughout the ’50′s, ’60′s and 1970′s.

Porsche 964 RSR Crash: What would you do?

Porsche RSR Crash

Dealing with an accident face-to-face is not something that most of us ever want to do. For one, what we see may stay with us forever, and two, the majority of people simply freeze up not knowing how to react. This is exactly what happened when rally driver Harry Kleinjan crashed during the Hellendoorn Rally 2013. His Porsche 964 RSR went careening out of control hitting a barrier, which in turn flipped it upside down into a small canal. As you can see there are loads of people standing around, yet no one is rushing to help. That begs the question – faced with an accident where you may be able to help someone, would you?

Throttle Stuck Collision

Throttle Stuck Collision

Six years ago I was involved in a very bad motorcycle accident. I was riding to work in New York City when a woman made an illegal left turn in front of me and I t-boned her at 45 mph. It was a situation where there was nothing I could do except brace for the impact and hope that I made it. Unfortunately there are times when accidents cannot be avoided, and when this happens you have little choice but to hold on for the ride and hope for the best. The owner of the following hot rod knows this all to well. Check it out after the jump.

Death Proof Car Chase: Good or Bad?

Posted in Car Chase, Crashes, Dodge, Domestic Rides, General, Racing, Rides, Stunts, Videos by MrAngry | August 17th, 2013 | 3 Responses |

Death Proof

Bullitt and Vanishing Point. Two cheesy films from the late 1960′s and early ’70′s that have only one redeeming quality – the car chases. These films set the standard for what many believe to be the best automotive car chases in history. Fast forward now to 2007 – Director Quentin Tarantino decides he’s going to have a go at creating his own version of the car chase using the same cars in the aforementioned films. He took a 1969 Dodge Charger (Bullitt used a ’68) and a 1970 Dodge Challenger, filmed them at speed and hoped the entire car chase world would love him for it. Hmm… not so much. While the chase was indeed good and actually filmed at speed like the originals, it simply lacked the overall grittiness that the first two had. Yes the cars were cool (anything Kurt Russell is in is cool), and yes the action great, but for some reason I just don’t think it lived up to the originals.

Am I wrong? Let me know what you think.
