First up, we have a burnout of epic proportion. This is just how they do things in Australia.

Keep an eye on the car that hits the jump and pulls a Dukes Of Hazzard move over the car in front of him to gain a position. The best part about it is that theses guys didn’t skip a beat they just keep on racing… lol”
Lastly, we have Brian Ambrosini’s famous wheel standing Gremlin. Driving this car must be like riding a bull…. that is very agitated…. while you’re on fire …… blindfolded.
Can’t see the Videos? Here are the links:
A few days ago BMW Canada tossed a video on Youtube that is pretty darn cool. It shows a BMW 1M sliding “through” concrete walls. Naturally everybody on the interwebs is questioning if they were real or not. Honestly, even if they were styrofoam, the video would still be crazy impressive. Considering the video is called “BMW 1M – Walls – MPowered Performance Part 1″, I’d guess that we will all have the pleasure of a part 2 as well. Enjoy!

If you enjoy the sights and sounds of engines revving to the point of explosion, cars doing 100+ through the middle of the forest, and drivers with a complete lack of fear, this video is for you. It is 14 minutes of ridiculous BMW hill climbing that will get your adrenaline pumping. By the time you are done watching it, you are going to need a shower and a nap. Enjoy!

If you haven’t see this video yet, you are in for a treat, because Tanner Foust takes flight in a truck for Hot Wheels, and jumps 332 foot like it’s his job. Oddly enough, it sort of is. Either way, enjoy this insanity.

This morning I landed on a crash test video that was made by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. When I was done watching the crash test, I realized that there were about 590 more to watch! GOLD MINE! There is no denying it, watching cars smash into each other without real lives at stake is really about as good as it gets. Most of the videos are short, sweet, and all business. Car enters at stage right with a high rate of speed, smashes object at stage left. Then they do a slow motion replay, and it’s a wrap. Next! It isn’t just brand new cars either, there are a variety of older car tests too! Here are 4 of my favorites so far.
Here is a 1996 Chevy Astro Van folding up:

When it comes right down to it, a supercharged V8 engine stuck into a car is a winning combination every single, stinkin’ time. You absolutely cannot deny it. It doesn’t matter if it is a Corvette, a Ford Falcon, or Acura Integra. Blown V8′s are all about brutally obnoxious, tire shredding, fear-filled, horsepower. The other day, I came across this Volvo 740 which I believe was built in Sweden, though I can’t be sure because I don’t speak or read the language. I typically just pick out the words that look like English or Gearhead slang, and make up the rest to fill in the blanks. Hey whatever works, amirite? Let’s get down to it – Here are the stats that you’ll want to take a close look at: » Continue reading more of this post…
Each Friday, Tony and I like to post up some great burnout videos. Over the course of this week, we came across a few really nice ones to share. However, the key to really enjoying these videos lies within your volume control. Don’t be shy about cranking the volume up. You are going to want to hear the turbos spool, the superchargers whine, and the tires rip up the pavement. Enjoy!
