Hot Wheels' New RC Cars Have Minds Of Their Own

Racing your Hot Wheels cars usually requires a good imagination, a makeshift track and a lot of DIY sound effects. But with the new Hot Wheels AI race system, you can finally race your friends, or a computer opponent, on a real track, without needing a smartphone — or a licence.


Cyclist Goes Full Superman, Beats Everyone

Video: Pro tip to cyclists: Sailing through the air horizontally while gripping your handlebars for dear life is the most efficient way downhill.


Racing Hydroplanes Is So Terrifying

Video: Like NASCAR, hydroplane racing seems like one of those sports where fans only watch in hopes of seeing a spectacular crash. Making over-powered boats race at speeds of over 322km per hour might not be humanity’s best decision, but it makes for some impressively terrifying highlight videos when things go wrong. We’ll just stick with canoes, thank you.


What Happens When A 850HP Truck Races A 10,000HP Car

Video: 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.


Watch A Terrifyingly Fast 185km/h Drone Race A Sports Car

Drone racing is exciting in its own right, but for spectators the sport still can’t quite match the horsepower and top speeds of auto racing — or can it? Nissan’s GT-R drone, designed and built by Tornado XBlades Racing, can hit a top speed of 185km per hour. It can accelerate from zero to 96km in under 1.3 seconds.


Formula E Is Even More Captivating In 360 Degrees

Formula E isn’t just different from its conventional sibling in what’s under the hood. Up top, there’s power boost activated by tweets, a gentle whine instead of the iconic roar, and now 360-degree cameras riding on top.


There Are No Losers When A Drone Races A McLaren Supercar

Video: To help promote the upcoming World Drone Prix in Dubai next week, the organisers enlisted the help of the local police, who have a McLaren 650s in their garage, to go head-to-head against a high-speed racing drone. It doesn’t matter who won the race, though, because the Tron-like footage is just wonderful.


All The F1 Constructors' Champions In History

Video: Formula One racing mixes man with machine so much that both are essentially responsible for victory. That’s why F1 gives out awards to both drivers (F1 World Drivers’ Champions) and the constructors of the cars (F1 World Constructors’ Champions). The constructor is basically the automobile maker of the vehicle (think Ferrari and Mercedes and so on) and the winner is determined “by adding points scored in each race by any driver for that constructor”.


Take A Heart-Pounding Ride On The Back Of This Absurdly Fast Motorcycle

Video: The North West 200 is the largest sports event in Ireland, and every May since 1929 motorcyclists gather to race down public streets between the towns of Portstewart, Coleraine and Portrush at speeds in excess of 322km/h.


What It's Like To Be In A Drag Race That Goes From 0 To 509km/h In 3.77 Seconds

Video: It’s over so fast, you don’t even know what happens. Here’s what it’s like to be inside the hot rod of 2013 NHRA Top Fuel champion Shawn Langdon. He guns his car from zero to 509km/h in a ridiculous 3.77 seconds, and all you really get to see is a total blur.
