Well, you know exactly what’s going to happen. When a car has 10 times the horsepower of a truck, the truck is going to get smoked. The question is how bad will the torching be? Hilariously bad. The trophy truck was given a six-second head start and still got beat, because the Funny Car is just too ridiculously…
Driving is the most dangerous thing most people do. It’s also something for which they likely have no or minimal training. Before you hit the road for Memorial Day weekend, let’s look at how to make it more survivable.
Holy mother of God, this has to be one of the craziest vehicle stunts I've ever seen: The Formula 1 team Lotus got one of their giant trailer trucks to jump over one of their race cars running at full speed. It is absolutely insane.
Need to haul a 1,300lbs bull moose off the Alaskan tundra? You're going to need an Argo. The world's only eight-wheel-drive, amphibious ATV can literally go anywhere.
A truck is on its way to get into another road when a tiny car invades its lane. The trucker sees the car just in time to slam his brakes, stopping his vehicle a fraction of an inch from the car and avoiding a fatal accident that could have ended with the car's driver in a soup can.
When a semi-trailer truck carrying a rig filled with toilet paper crashes into a bridge, what happens? A giant mess. A giant mess that someone has to clean up. This timelapse shows a city clean up crew picking up all the crap, repackaging it for another truck and getting the streets clean so that no one would know…
Amazingly enough, everyone involved in this accident survived almost unscathed. It was recorded by the dashcam of Dr. Guan Zhu, a professor at Texas A&M University.
The answer was obvious. If you're Russian, anyway.
What is this? A flying drone? Eight flying drones? One flying helicopter? A moving room? A truck? It's a little bit of everything. Called the AT Black Knight Transformer, it combines the vertical takeoff and landing of a helicopter with the off-road driving capabilities of a truck. So yes, that means it can fly and…
In The Truck, a truck chases people around and tries to... run them over. Is it haunted? Is it Satanic? Is it just born evil? Is anybody even driving this thing? Whatever the truth, stop lights can't stop it. Even barriers made of thin plywood can't stop it.
Sometimes it feels like the romance of the road is lost at truck stops. Those oases of diesel fuel and stale coffee seem too industrial, too pragmatic to fit into a Kerouac-style vision of road tripping. Photographer Michael Massaia lends some highbrow class to the truck stop with his series Seeing the Black Dog. …
Lasha Pataraya has an unusual gift. He's not just insanely strong: he has insanely strong ears, too. Which is why he was able to use one of them to pull an 8-ton truck.
Truckers of the world! No matter how many times you try it, no matter how much you duck inside your cabin as get through it, no matter how strongly you believe the warning signs don't apply to you, your vehicle is never going to be able to survive an encounter with Durham's 11-foot 8-inch tall bridge.
If you needed further proof of how mad things are in Syria right now, watch this video of a group of rebels using a fuel truck as a giant flamethrower against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad's troops.
This truck carrying 1,000 gallons of sulfuric acid crashed in Bartow, Florida, spilling its cargo over State Road 60. The driver was burned, people and animals have been evacuated, and a hazardous materials team in on the scene. But my question is: if sulfuric acid drops on a road, would the road melt?
Witness this man happily perched on the back of a truck travelling at around 49mph (80km/h). It seems so easy! Ah Brazil, sometimes you surprise me so much that I think you are Russia. Or worse, Florida.
Picture, if you will, the self-driving Prius that Google invented—quiet, safe, sedate, room for five. Now imagine the exact, polar opposite—a six-wheeled, self-navigating robo-truck built for off-roading and ramming, a .50-cal machine gun on its roof, and room for zero. That's the Crusher.
You are looking at the map of the routes followed by the nuclear trucks—plain-looking, high-tech trailers that travel America's busiest highways carrying nuclear bombs, material for atomic weapons, radioactive metals and nuclear fuel for the US Navy.
Holy Batman's pants, check out this Bootmobile. These guys created a truck that is a boot that is a truck that is a boot. Pedal to the leather to the metal! I'm so excited I can go like this all day.
An anonymous reader sent me this crazy video taken two weeks ago: a truck out of control almost smashes a car on a snowy road. Fortunately, these guys got extremely lucky and Death got distracted at the very last second.
