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.


I Did Not Expect The End Of This Rube Goldberg Machine To Be Like This

Video: Rube Goldberg machines are always fun because you get to see everything happen in a linear fashion and yet still don’t know what the grand finale is. It’s like you kind of, sort of see where it’s going but still remain excited on the next step of the machine. This Rube Goldberg machine by Arrow FiveYearsOut is even better than all the others because you truly don’t expect the ending. It brings you to a whole ‘nother space.


Watch Cyclists Get Blown Backwards In A Race Because The Wind Was Too Strong

Video: Everything seems to be going swimmingly in this stage of the Volta La Marina in Benidorm but then all of a sudden the cyclists fall off pace of the car and seem to be slowing down to a legitimate crawl and then basically hit a full stop all at once. What happened? It was the wind. The strong winds pushed against the cyclists stopping them in their tracks and even blowing some backwards. The race was suspended because of it.


Drone Racing Is Starting To Look More Exciting Than A Top Gun Dogfight

Video: Racing drones still isn’t considered as challenging as other vehicular sports given the pilots aren’t actually inside the vehicles they’re controlling. But watching the first-person footage of this drone absolutely tearing through a packed warehouse, you can’t argue there isn’t a ton of skill required.
