Ever find yourself with something you’re thinking but you just can’t find the words to say? Or maybe you’re biting your tongue knowing that you shouldn’t say something out loud, and then you find the perfect meme that speaks your mind for you? We can relate, and like it or not, we think these off-road memes pretty much speak the truth.
Remote control vehicles have come a long way from the days when the controller was connected to the vehicle by a wire. Nowadays they’ve become so realistic it can be hard to tell the difference between an off-road RC car and a real off-road vehicle. Here are a few awesome photos of very realistic off-road RC cars.
It’s hard to say just what types of videos get our blood pumping the most, but big air videos are near the top. Props to this guy for hanging it all on the line and for saving what could have been a big crash. We’re guessing he’s going to think twice next time… assuming he gets his truck all put back together.
There are professionals and there are amateurs. Then there is a class of people that have no business being where they are and we would put this guy in that category. Maybe his paint job had something to do with it… but this is an example of how not to climb the Escalator on Hell’s Revenge in Moab, Utah.
Turbos, turbos and more turbos. Lots of turbos mounted in all sorts of ways to six-cylinder engines are featured in this lengthy but worthwhile video of SUVs partaking in an organized off-road drag race filmed at the Emirates Motorplex in the United Arab Emirates.
Red Bull Teka KTM Racing recently welcomed its newest team rider of the Orange factory rider squad on January 1, 2011. This new video chronicles a day in the life of the young racer as he trains for the upcoming race season.

James Stewart, previous James “Bubba” Stewart, had been recovering from an injury he suffered back in January. With doctors telling him that it’s possible he might not be able to race again, he sought out some new career options.
If you watch the video, it’s clear his God-given talent is on a bike, but his artwork may have a shot.
Ever see something rolling down the trail or on the street and thought to yourself, WTF? We couldn’t help but think that same thing as we came across some pictures of just absolutely bizarre off-road vehicles.
There’s something to be said for backyard mechanics, but these vehicles are on another level. They’re not exclusive to trucks and 4x4s only, as you can see. Some of these modifications are to vehicles never intended for off-road use, which is part of what makes them so entertaining – or at least fun to look at. If you have any crazy pictures worth sharing, send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The machine is powered by an old Yamaha engine and the rest is made up of scrap. The fiberglass seat comes from an old carousel and the gear shift lever appears to some sort of Coca-Cola collectible.
What really sets this machine apart is that it uses a big wheel instead of a track. Check out more photos after the jump.
