This Tunnel Put Together Like Lego Bricks Impossibly Sticks Together With No Support

Video: Yeah, I’m not ashamed to admit this: I feel slightly less comfortable when I’m under a tunnel than when I’m not. It’s not that I think that the tunnel will collapse on me – it’s because I know the sky absolutely won’t. This tunnel would put my fear into overdrive because it looks like it would totally collapse. It has no permanent support work and the entire construction process looks like piecing together Lego bricks. Yet it can support so much weight and still stand up.


How To Turn Your Economy Car Into An Off-Road Adventuremobile For Cheap

Everyone wants a truck, van or jeep for off-road adventures. But, us city types can’t afford to own or drive one every day. Don’t worry, the crappy car your mum bought you in college will do just fine, you’ll just have to use a little redneck ingenuity.


Watching A Truck Towing A Boat Drive Over A Flimsy Wooden Bridge Is So Stressful

Video: I don’t know if these wooden planks can be considered a bridge or if they just constitute a poorly made death trap but I know that I wouldn’t even want to walk on the thing. And yet, this guy drives a truck that’s towing a boat over it! Nervousness alone would make me crash it right into the water below, destroying everything that remains of this so called “bridge” in Brazil.


Building These Colossal Haul Trucks Is Like Building Your Very Own Transformer

Video: Oh man. This is one big baby. The Liebherr T 282 is one of the largest haul trucks in the world (it has the second largest haul truck payload capacity) and it’s assembly process is so impressive that I would totally believe it if each one of these bad boys were Transformers that we’ve created and didn’t want to tell anybody because the fourth movie sucked. The scale of this moving monster machine is just unbelievable, its wheelbase is 6m and its dimensions are 7m tall and 9m wide and 15m long.


I Would Read Peanuts If Snoopy Were Actually A Transforming Truck

It was one of the country’s most beloved comic strips, but did anyone ever actually find the Peanuts gang entertaining? Of course not. But if Charles Schulz had taken a page from Takara Tomy and turned Snoopy into a transforming truck, his comic would have been even more enjoyable than Calvin & Hobbes.


You Can Pile 180kg Of Toys Into This Over-Sized Plastic Dump Truck

Truck Gets Obliterated When It Runs Into The Bottom Of A Bridge

Video: Yeesh! The East Street train bridge in the small town of Westwood, Massachusetts, is becoming notorious for ripping off the roofs of trucks that are too tall to pass through it. The destruction is actually pretty impressive to see, I mean, a big truck basically gets flipped sideways while everything gets torn apart like a bag of trash.


Dino-Robot Toys Are Cool. Dino-Robot-Construction-Truck Toys Are Incredible

Following in the footsteps of 22-minute long toy commercials posing as cartoons (like Transformers or Jem and the Holograms) DreamWorks Animation and Netflix are about to release a new series called Dinotrux starring what could be the most toy-friendly characters ever devised: construction vehicles that are also somehow robotic dinosaurs.


Driving Australia's Remote Cape York Peninsula

For most of Cape York, the remote peninsula north of Cairns that runs parallel to the Great Barrier Reef, the nearest major city isn’t even in Australia, it’s in Papua New Guinea. You know, where head-hunting was a thing up until a couple of decades ago. We just drove through it on the most challenging off-road trail down under.


Adventure Review: How I Turned My Subaru Outback Into A Real Adventuremobile

Shopping for a truck to take off-road, I ended up buying a Subaru Outback, then modifying it to meet my need for dirt. 14,000km in, how’s it holding up? Pretty damn well, actually.
