    This is a video of Ukrainian speed climber Danyl Boldyrev jumping up a 15-meter (49.2-foot) wall in a record-breaking 5.60 seconds. For reference, that's about twice as fast as I could even run 15-meters, and that's assuming I don't cramp or trip and get a booboo. You know ho... / Continue →

    This is a video of a group of French drone hobbyists racing quadrocopters (and other variants) through the woods with the help of on-board cameras and video goggles. It looks like fun. Especially if those copters were outfitted with POWERFUL LASER WEAPONS capable of F***ING S... / Continue →

    These are shots of Deadmau5's Ferrari 458 Italia wrapped in a Nyan Cat theme (complete with EPICLULZ! license plate). Apparently he plans on driving it in the Gumball 3000 rally this year if his single-seater BAC Mono isn't built in time. Wow, must be nice having a Ferrari ba... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road spotted in real life. It looks way less spacey than I would have imagined. It's actually disappointing. It's real though, and located on Interstate 86 in Idaho. Weird, I never though the exit to Rainbow Road would be in Idaho. Of... / Continue →

    Inspired by Freddie Wong's R/C police chase shot like a real movie, this is another impressive little R/C car chase by Youtuber FinalCutKing through a cardboard city made "entirely out of cardboard, hot glue, and spray paint." Impressive, but I made a girlfriend once out of th... / Continue →

    This is a video of two buttholes in C5 and C6 Corvettes trying to race each other off the line at a red light in Texas over the Thanksgiving holiday. SPOILER: It ends with a crash. But it begins and middles with a guy chewing his gum so f***ing loud you'd swear he's trying to... / Continue →

    Note: Full-res shot of the system HERE in case objects in the rearview mirror really are closer than they appear or something. The Octane 120 Pro Beer Arcade From Dream Arcades is a home machine designed for driving simulators that includes a built-in kegerator and two taps, o... / Continue →

    Some unknown Mario Kart lover went and spraypainted symbols from the game in one of Portland's bike lanes. Why? Cause that shit's poppin', son! Almost makes me want to get a bicycle. Ooooor just drive my car in the bike lane. Look out Lance, daddy's got a blue shell! Hit ... / Continue →

    Fed up with Mario constantly tossing his brethren around like expendable weapons, Koopa takes a stand and gives the plumber a taste of his own medicine. And I'm not talking mushrooms either, although I did eat some at a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and watched a bus turn into... / Continue →

    This is a pretty awesome trailer for Mario Kart: The Movie. Obviously, the movie isn't actually real but the trailer is 3:40 long so you get to see all the would-be good parts anyway. I especially liked the part at the end where Princess gets all nekkid and dancy at the finis... / Continue →

    This is a video of a go-kart with a Honda CBR 900RR motorcycle engine in it. It's the closest thing to a real Mario Kart I've ever seen. I love how the guy driving doesn't even bother wearing a helmet. Because, honestly, heads are overrated, especially when you're drifting i... / Continue →

    First of all, I bet on baby races all the time ($40 on the bald one with a dirty diaper). And secondly, Kajus Aukščionis recently won a Lithuanian baby race and is a super fast crawler. Not as fast as me, but I have a special skill set. But what gets young Kajus crawling s... / Continue →

    This is a video of Jetpack International trying to raise the airspeed record for jetpacking. Because, well, you've gotta start somewhere. This is not especially difficult to do, considering that jetpack airspeed records don't really exist yet, but when you only have 30 or 40 ... / Continue →

    That's right, a team at Warwick University have developed a race car that's made out of vegetables and runs on chocolate. Of course, gumdrops and licorice sticks would have been cooler, but hey, you work with what you've got. The racer isn't legal to race in the F3-series as ... / Continue →

    So apparently some guys programmed a Blackberry Storm to control a little toy race car using its accelerometers. Then they posted the video on Youtube. Then McLaren saw the video and contacted them about using the device to control a real race car. And that's what they did (... / Continue →

    This street-legal racecar limo is actually available for hire and can allegedly reach up to 300MPH. Of course your sissy of a driver will probably never top 65MPH, but that's because this whole idea is stupid. Unless you get a couple highspeed track runs before going to you t... / Continue →

    First we discovered Lotus Exiges are standard issue for Imperial Stormtroopers, and now that Vader blasts around in a little Ariel Atom. What next, JarJar in a septic truck? Or maybe an Ewok in a fur-covered Caddy with fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview? Oooh -- and a Princ... / Continue →

    The Cloud 9 by Radio Flyer is thankfully just conceptual at this time because no child, I don't care if they pick platinum boogers, deserves to ride around in such opulence. The questionable Flyer comes complete with two seats, MP3 player, speaker system, 5-point racing harnes... / Continue →

    According to a recent IGN poll of 2,000 gamers (that's not enough), Wal-Mart is the go to for buying video games. I find it hard to believe, but I find a lot of things hard to believe. Moon landing my ass -- I'm gonna be first! Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, is also... / Continue →

    When I was shopping for just the right ass-receptacle for my cubicle, I considered the ejector seat chair, Hula chair, and tank chair. Unfortunately, I didn't know about these fast little numbers at the time. RaceChairs are actual seats from sports cars that have been convert... / Continue →
