Dodge Charger Safety Chase Car Assisting With ER-2 Landing

This 1-minute, 49-second video taken January 20, 2011 in Palmdale CA shows NASA's ER-2 coming in for a landing and a 2010 Dodge Charger safety chase car escorting the aircraft to a safe landing. The safety chase car is being driven by an experienced ER-2 pilot and it can be seen charging down the runway in a high-speed chase of the ER-2. NASA's Dryden (now Armstrong) Flight Research Center maintains and operates the ER-2, which is based at Hangar 703 in Palmdale. Communicating with the aircraft pilot, the safety chase car pilot calls out the distance in feet from the landing gear to the runway to help the pilot make a smooth landing.

Son's comical reaction to Lamborghini full throttle acceleration2m05s

Son's comical reaction to Lamborghini full throttle acceleration

Dave is about to take his son Chris to school in a Lamborghini Huracan. In an amazing act of generosity, the owner who wishes to remain anonymous, loaned Dave the supercar to make a dream come true for a young cancer survivor. Dave was given the car for 5 days to show the young man a good time, but he was also told to take his own kids for a ride. Dave picked up Chris at his house and drove him to his university campus. They took a detour on the way so that Chris could experience the full throttle acceleration of a 600 horsepower machine. Chris wasn't fully prepared and his reaction is priceless! This supercar is so popular that it replaced Lamborghini's best seller and most produced car – the Gallardo. It's debut was made in 2014, and it features 310 horsepower and 4 wheel drive. That same year, the Huracan was named “The Supercar of the Year 2014” by the popular car magazine “Top Gear”. So we can safely say that these two fellas were very lucky to be able to drive a car such as this one, and the experience must have been one they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Futuristic concept car holds impossible puzzle48s

Futuristic concept car holds impossible puzzle

The 2017 Toronto Auto Show brought the unveiling of a hydrogen fueled Toyota concept car that has zero emissions. Lightweight and powered by an electric motor, this car produces nothing but water. The added bonus is that the car can not only produce energy for propulsion, it can also produce power for a household and enough to charge other electric vehicles. The biggest drawback is that scientists have not yet discovered a way to extract and store hydrogen without producing more emissions than they save. If they can manage to solve this puzzle, hydrogen is one of the most readily available renewable energy carriers on earth.

Epic Honda snow drifting filmed with drone

It's not what you drive, it's how you drive it! Winter driving can be a lot of fun, especially when you're a fan of drifting. This Honda Civic owner drives it like he stole it. The full speed slides and drifts are filmed by a drone skimming along just over the road. The powdered snow flies all around and covers the Honda as it spins out. These antics are best reserved for controlled environments with no hazards or traffic.

Lamborghini drifts hard in the snow27s

Lamborghini drifts hard in the snow

This Lamborghini owner couldn't wait for the snow to fall. For him, drifting and spinning around in the snow is the most fun way to drive his supercar. Here, he does his best impression of a lighthouse as he spins around on the spot. Although this looks easy, getting any car to spin around in circles takes a precise control with the gas and the steering. This is a professional driver on a closed course. This should not be attempted by non professional drivers in any car.

The Fast and the Generous: North Face Rally Toy Drive

This year, Santa's sleigh has been replaced by 30 high powered supercars. The North Face Rally is a bunch of people with fast cars and big hearts. They knew there were children who would be spending Christmas in hospital so they raised over $15,000 and took their supercars to Toys R Us. They called for a little help from the Ontario Provincial Police. A few days later, they drove these beautiful cars to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto to deliver the toys. There will be more smiles on Christmas Day, thanks to this amazing show of generosity. Amazingly, they even bought enough toys to donate to the Metro Toronto Police toy drive. But that's another story... This is the kindness that Christmas is all about!

Guy puts powerful motorcycle engine into ancient USSR vehicle2m34s

Guy puts powerful motorcycle engine into ancient USSR vehicle

Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you took the engine from a powerful motorcycle and placed in into a very old vehicle from USSR times? THIS!!! A bunch of guys in Russia took on a very ambitious feat. They removed the engine from a Honda CB 1100 and placed in into the chassis on a S3D cycle car. The S-3D model was produced between 1970 and 1998 and is quite heavy, because of the all steel body. They u were called “invalidka” or “motor wheelchairs”, because they were leased via the social care system to disabled people and could be renewed ever 5 years. The car is quite tiny, 102.4 inches in length, but rather heavy, measuring upwards of 500 kilos. Not all of the "invalidkas" were scrapped, because some of their disabled lessees managed to register them as their private property. However, nowadays they are rare, and earlier models are exceptionally rare and became a collector's item. This bunch managed to get their hands on a nice teal sample and made Frankenstein's monster out of it! The 1140cc air-cooled inline four-cylinder engine of the Honda makes the tiny heavy car fly like it is made out of tin! Whoa!

Cruising up the Southern California coast in a 2016 Toyota Prius C

What makes for a most dope road trip experience? It's actually pretty easy. All you need to check off your list is good friends, great weather, and a fly set of wheels. Earlier this month, we were fortunate to hit the pavement revving up the coastline with Toyota as participants in their “Ultimate Southern California Roadtrip”. Honestly, is there a more temperate climate in the lower 48 to cruise?

Annoyed driver attempts to prevent cars from illegally passing3m02s

Annoyed driver attempts to prevent cars from illegally passing

According to the user 'arntzville', driving along the breakdown lane is actually legal between certain hours of the day on this freeway. This was not the case during this time but many people decided they were still going to do it anyway. A Kia driver did not approve of this. Every time someone tried to pass on the breakdown lane, he tried to stop them. He would move his car closer to the driver in front of him, not allowing these illegal drivers through. There is no way he is giving in. This driver does not want anyone to get away with committing illegal actions. At one point in the video, the Kia driver positions his car between the right lane and the breakdown lane, not allowing people to continue moving on the breakdown lane at that time. He is annoyed and is not pleased with the situation. This may no be the best idea, he could create even more unnecessary collisions on the road. He does not approve of the other drivers actions on the road and is tired of this situation. If it's time to give your car a good wash, check out some of this car wash equipment. Why not give your car a nice sparkle!

You've never seen a car do this before!2m40s

You've never seen a car do this before!

Unlike other omni-capable wheels, my wheels do not require the vehicle to be built around them. This is a world first bolt-on application for anything with wheels. Designed to be used in all weather and road conditions. They are stronger, faster, and more accurately controlled than prior art. They can take a beating. The tires can have the same build characteristics (siping, grooves, rubber compounds etc.) as regular tires. Now you can drive in all directions, and turn on the spot, if needed. These are proof of concept prototypes. Finished wheels will be refined to target application requirements. Setup on this car has an incredible 24,000 pounds of torque directly on the tires! Speed can be adjusted for target application requirements by changing up the gearing ratios and with a speed controller. No one knows about this invention. Please share/tell everyone!
