VW Flip

I can tell you from experience that being upside down in a car is somewhat of a harrowing ordeal. Back in 1988 I flipped a Suzuki Samurai onto its roof. It was a little shit-box of a 4×4 that had no business being on the street. The key was that the accident happened so fast that I didn’t have time to react. One minute I was fine, the other, upside down with a puzzled look on my face. The accident was caused by a quick lift in the pavement, followed by a brush with a high curb at just the right angle. The following video demonstrates how quickly things can go South if you stop paying attention for even the briefest of moments.

“Just Go With It”: RED BULL Soap Box!

Red Bull Soap Box

When I was a kid my Dad built me a go-cart out of plywood, rope and some red wheels from the local hardware store. To a 9-year old, it was the trickest thing on the planet and helped cement the notion that cars were to be in my future. As time went on though I graduated to real cars with real engines, but never once forgot where it started. Thankfully Red Bull has their own Soap Box Derby for guys like me. It’s awesome and not only ensures we can still get our soap box fix on, but that we will also get all the bumps and bruises that go along with it.

Sure there’s a fair amount of risk involved, but in this day and age, what doesn’t involve danger! Check out the mayhem after the jump.

Here’s an idea. Lets get some relatively powerful trucks and drag race them on a surface that’s almost as slick as ice when it comes to stopping. Seems like a good idea, no?

Schmucks.

Thunder Hill Crash April 2013

Attending track events can be one of the most exhilarating and exciting things you can do with your car. From novice drivers to experts, nothing says “fun” like wringing out your ride at speed. With speed however comes the chance for danger and in a race track environment there is usually “zero” warning when things are about to go south. The following video was recently shot at Northern California’s Thunderhill Raceway and shows just how unpredictable things can get even when there are experienced drivers behind the wheel.

Mustang Wheel Stand

Traction, power and balls. That’s what it takes to be a good drag racer these days. Have too much of one and not enough of the other though, and things can sometimes go south. If however you’ve got too much of all of the above, well then that can also be a detriment. Racer Jere Etheridge recently found this out when piloting what looks to be a late model Mustang down the 1,320. Not only did he have traction and power, but he also had the balls to stay in it the entire run making for one of the most exciting passes I’ve ever seen. Don’t believe me?

Click through and watch as a few classic Holdens meet their demise during the race action.
