Some people have more money than brains. You wouldn’t catch us driving our Luxury Range Rover (or any luxury car for that matter) through one of the hot tubs in Moab, Utah. But hey, if you got it, flaunt it?
Sometimes running wide open can come back to bite you. There is a thin line between pushing the envelope and stepping off of it. This video of a trophy truck (or Trick Truck, as BITD likes to call it) rollover shows that this racer may have crossed that line.
It’s one thing to see guys like BJ Baldwin and Robby Gordon hucking their $250,000 trophy trucks, equipped with the best parts that sponsors can provide, off huge jumps. It’s another thing to see weekend warriors without the support and resources (not to mention the experience) doing the same. This is an awesome video of a very nice Silverado prerunner catching some huge air.
Toyo Tires today announced a new video series where it will be teaming up with World RallyX driver Ken Block. The new video series is Climbkhana, and it features Block’s 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2. Apparently Block further upgraded his ‘Stang with a twin turbo, methanol power, 1,400 horsepower V8 engine, and of course the crucial upgrade of proper traction that comes in the form of Toyo Proxes R888R tires. This will be the first time the Proxes R888R is available in the U.S..
In case you’re unfamiliar with the growing sport of Formula Off-Road, it basically consists of over-the-top off-road vehicles competing on over-the-top off-road courses. The courses consist unbelievably difficult hillclimbs, technical sections that test a driver’s skills and even water crossings.
Choirboy is one of the most dominating drivers in the sport today, and you can watch him and his 700+ horsepower Formula Off-Road buggy do work on this course.
We’re not sure what you were doing at 8 years of age, but we certainly weren’t piloting an Arctic Cat Wildcat UTV through hundreds of miles of grueling desert. But that’s exactly what 8-year-old UTV racer Max Gordon, son of off-road racer Robby Gordon, did just this past weekend at the BITD Bluewater Desert Challenge. We know racing is in this kids blood, but after watching this video we think it’s safe to say he’s got a future in motorsports.
Rock crawling is not for the faint of heart. It takes lots of skill and a fair amount of courage to risk landing your Jeep on its lid. You have to know the limits of yourself and your equipment, and this guy definitely knows what his Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is capable of, as he makes quick work of the “Plan B” obstacle at Sand Hollow State Park.
After you’ve mastered driving a UTV on four wheels, the next logical step is to learn how to drive it on two, right? And just to be clear, we’re not talking about merely getting the car onto two wheels… oh no, mastering the art of two-wheel UTV driving involves being able to control and turn the vehicle all while riding on two wheels. Check it out the two-wheel UTV master below.
We often wish we could listen in on the conversation that took place just before some of the videos that we find online. If we had to guess what lead up to this Ford Raptor vs. Chevy Silverado pulling contest, it probably went a little something like this…
