Yesterday a friend of mine showed me a pretty entertaining Nissan commercial that I hadn’t seen before. Sure it has some drifting that can’t happen in a “real” Nissan SE-R, but it’s entertainment, take it for what it is! If you like cars, drifting, or 80’s metal, this video is a win. Check it out.
Can’t see the video? Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Kaj0QyAUoo
Tanner Foust has a new drift video out that you definitely need to watch. It takes place on a section of the Mulholland Highway, known as “The Snake”. I dunno how you land a gig like that, but I have to assume that he and Ken Block are two of the happiest guys on earth. I mean seriously, is there anything better than beating the snot out of a car that somebody else paid for?
I had to sneak this video onto the blog last minute today because it is truly spectacular on so many levels. It shows the valves of a BMW S1000RR engine opening and closing at an obscene RPM. After seeing this, I want to go home and take the valve covers off my engines to see how they compare. There is really not a whole lot more to say.
Ultimate win for the week!
People were more creative in the 1930’s, this video makes that quite apparent. This guy decided that 4 wheels was not the proper way to transport people, and 1 giant wobbling wheel would be waaaaay better. I am not going to say he was wrong, but maybe just a little too advanced for his era. If I’m not in a flying car by 2020, I am definitely going on search for a dynosphere. It’s the only logical thing to do if I am travelling down a beach or through a desert. Who’s with me?
Last week we discussed the Top 3 Most Awesome Ways To Destroy Your Engine. This week, a video popped up in front of me that documented a very special event. It was as if the video was saying “Hey Jeremy, I was just reading your totally radical automotive blog and I would like to share a video example of something on your Top 3 list”. Well, thank you Mr.Awesome Video, I accept your greetings and your offer. The only thing missing in the video is the super high speed camera slow-motion replay button.
While cruising through the sand pits near the internet’s automotive superhighway, I came across something way more rad than your new patch-covered jean jacket. It’s quite odd, has 4 wheels, and comes complete with an engine, thus heavily qualifying it as an automotive oddity this week. Let’s stop for a moment and consider all the things in life that you have ever thought about running over. Watermelons, crush em. Dirt piles, crushed. Couches, crush. A wagon full of teddy bears, crushed. A pool full of pudding, crush. They are ALL now able to be crushed thanks to the guys in this video. With 7 feet of articulation, it doesn’t matter what’s in front of you, it’s getting crushed.
