Have you seen that wild video of Blake Wilkey hooning around the streets of San Diego in a dune buggy? Well, unsurprisingly, it has attracted the attention of the San Diego Police Department, who are now looking into charging Wilkey with reckless driving and vandalism. Needless to say, if you're part-time wheelman with a couple of GoPros and a Youtube channel, it probably makes sense to do these things in controlled environments, where pedestrians aren't an issue and the police aren't around to see your name plastered on the side of your whip while you're doing something highly illegal. I don't know, just some food for thought.
Join professional BASE jumper, Quentin Luçon, as he hitches a ride in a Corvette, jumps out, and swan dives off of a freaking bridge. Needless to say, this is highly illegal and you shouldn't try it at home, but Quentin wins our weekly Vin Diesel Award nonetheless.
Want to see something nuts? Of course you do, so join Zac Majors and the Rhythm of Flight team as they thread a needle and fly through the Wilson Arch outside Moab, Utah. If this is a bullseye, then I guess that makes Zac the damn arrow...
Here's something you don't see every day: An F1 car with chains on its tires tearing apart a snowy ski course in the heart of the Alps. Kudos to Max Verstappen and Red Bull for making this happen, because this is, without a doubt, one of the craziest videos we've seen this year.
Until then, however, check out Snowmusement, which finds Toby Miller, Red Gerard, and his brother Brendan Gerard hopping fences for a winter shred session unlike any we've ever seen.
If you saw Lexus's hoverboard last year and thought, "man, if only I could have one of those?" Well, then join the party. Thankfully, ArcaBoard is kicking off 2016 with exactly that premise in mind, hoping to produce hoverboards for private consumers everywhere. Boasting 272 horsepower and 203,000 watts of electric power, the makers of ArcaBoard are calling it the "lightest personal vehicle ever created", but there is one catch: If you want to cop yourself one of these bad boys, you're going to need pony up nearly $20,000. Needless to say, these are not for everyone...yet.
From his truly awesome One of Those Days series to this—arguably the wildest no-snow ski edit we've ever laid our unworthy eyes upon—it goes without saying: Candide Thovex has this viral web thing down pat. Sure, it's a big-budget, glorified Audi commercial. but if you simply can't wait for winter, it's a must-watch all the same.
What do you get when you combine a little girl, a full-size RC dump truck, and an obstacle course replete with with a mud pit, fireworks, and a swinging crane? Absolute destruction, of course. Whether or not this little girl was actually driving is still up for debate, but kudos to the Volvo trucks for making us perk up and pay attention once again.
On November 15, 2015, Frenchman Théo Sanson walked a slackline stretching from Utah's Rectory rock tower to its Castleton counterpart...over 1,600 feet away. And although no world records have been confirmed (yet), all it takes is one woozy, vertigo-inducing viewing to realize this one of the craziest tightrope stunts ever. If you're afraid of heights, now is your last chance to look away...
In a post-Gymkhana world, where absolutely insane motorized mayhem has become the norm, BJ Baldwin's Recoil 3—the latest installment in a truly mind-blowing trio of Trophy Truck stunt driving masterclasseses—stands apart. A scripted chase scene over the hills and through the streets of Tacoma, Washington, this one showcases some of the gnarliest driving we've ever seen, pushing the capabilities of both driver and machine to their literal breaking points. So grab the firesuit, strap on the helmet, and buckle up, because just watching this one feels dangerous.
