79Coal-rolling Ram dually does tandem beer-shooting burnout with ATV in bed

Sometimes a video comes around that just makes you shake your head in disbelief. Take for example these guys from Nebraska in their dually diesel flatbed Ram, doing a smoky burnout. Lighting up the tires is nothing new, but these folks take things a step further by having another guy on an ATV in bed that is also smoking the tires. Finally, people are sitting on a couch in the bed taking the whole show in, as beer cans shoot out of the stacks.

32IIHS finds hundreds of ATV riders die on public roads each year

It should come as no great surprise to learn that All-Terrain Vehicles are designed for use off-road. But a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reveals that an alarming number of ATVs are used on roadways, and even more alarming still is the number of fatalities they have been proven to cause.

94ATV Rider Nearly Plunges Over Cliff

Four-wheeler and rider almost fall down 40-foot cliff

A helmet-mounted camera captured a woman's fall and rescue after she tumbled from her four-wheeler and nearly slid down a 40-foot cliff.

42Polaris ATV gets novel non-pneumatic tires [w/videos]

For the ultimate doomsday prepper, let us officially introduce you to the Polaris Sportsman WV850 H.O. Not only was this ATV inspired by the MV850 military vehicle, but it truly is an all-terrain vehicle with its trick non-pneumatic tires.

12California companies fined $3.6 million for importing dirty ATVs

One California-based consultant just got busted for double-dipping on four-wheelers. Chi Zheng, whose Los Angeles-based companies MotorScience Inc. and MotorScience Enterprise Inc. specialized as a consultant for all-terrain vehicle imports from China, had his companies fined $3.6 million for violating emissions requirements, according to the US Department of Justice, US Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board (CARB). The companies were hit with a $3.55 million fin

9Gymkhana video team produces insane off-road flick using Polaris UTV

The video team responsible for Ken Block's first three Gymkhana videos is at it again, but this time, the action has been taken further off-road with a highly modified 2014 RZR XP1000, the new top-of-the-line Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) from Polaris. The video by Mad Media was published today as part of a campaign timed to follow last week's release of Polaris' newest offering.

7Gibbs ready to expand after successful Quadski launch

Autoblog Editor Jeff Ross said of the Gibbs Quadski "[Gibbs] is looking to create an entirely different experience when it comes to powersports." The Auburn Hills, Michigan-based manufacturer of aquatic ATVs is apparently succeeding, as it has announced plans to expand before its sole product has even gone on sale.

1In Detail: Gibbs Quadski

Some combinations are better than the sum of their parts. It worked out well for peanut butter and chocolate, but that combo may have been outdone by the Gibbs Quadski, which combines a jet ski with an ATV.

17The Shredder is like a jet-ski for land, with tank treads

Blending the attributes of an ATV, a jet ski, a tank and a skateboard is no easy task, but that is just the diverse kind of capability that the BPG Werks DTV Shredder is offering to the powersports market.

28Gibbs outlines sales plans for new BMW-powered $40,000 Quadski land and sea ATV [w/video]

We've reported on news about Gibbs Sports Amphibians here in the past; the company has spent years developing products that are equally at home on the land and in the water. In fact, in addition to the (relatively) well-known Aquada amphibious car, we've know that Gibbs has been working on this amphibious ATV for years.

18Formula Cross YFC 450 ATV-based kart priced at $7,500* [w/video]

The Formula Cross YFC 450, a rally kart based on the Yamaha YFZ 450 ATV from 2002-2013, has been priced at $7,500, but that's for the build-it-yourself kit and doesn't include taxes or shipping. If you want Formula Cross to put it together for you, something you might want to consider since the kit includes 40 items plus hardware, that will be an extra $1,350 after you've delivered it to their facility.

29Formula Cross seeks to turn ATVs into mini racers

Although the vehicle sliding through the image above looks something like a cartoonified World Rally Championship Ford Focus, it is actually an ATV – the Yamaha YZF 450 Raptor, at right – turned into a miniature rally car. The transformation comes courtesy of Formula Cross, a company that wants to create an entry series into motorsports or weekend-warrioring that's more open, and kinder on the body, than karting. From what we can tell, the brains behind the machine is none other than

21Watch the world's most epic wheel-to-wheel paintball battle

Those of you who've played paintball know the game rarely turns out how you imagined it. The weapons fire a .68 caliber blob using compressed air, and as such, they have all the accuracy of a pool noodle fired from a howitzer. That doesn't make it any less fun to track your friends down through the woods and paint them dayglow pink, though. One filmmaker has decided to show off exactly what the game looks like in the imaginations of 12-year-old boys everywhere by throwing in unsanctioned weaponr

50What happens when an ATV hits an unmoovable object?

Argentinian rally champ Lucas Bonetto can attest to the udderly day-ruining power of hitting a wayward cow on an ATV at open throttle. There's no way to know for sure, but we can guess Bonetto was thinking, "Oh, that's bull...!" right before T-boning this side of beef. Unlike some cows, most ATVs don't have horns, and even if Bonetto's did, there was little chance of it being herd over the roar of his quad. Plus, ATVs aren't exactly known for quick steering.

3Teens build mini TVN Dominator tornado chase vehicle

There are few things that can't be accomplished with a little PVC pipe, some chicken wire, cardboard boxes and spray paint. Just ask the innovative chaps in the videos after the jump. As part of a Halloween celebration last year, the quartet of youths took it up on themselves to recreate a scale version of the tornado-chasing Dominator from TVN. The finished product looks pretty good given its humble roots, and since the project uses a Honda Recon ATV for a chassis, it gets down the road with a

AddIn Detail: EPIC Amp Electric ATV

Vehicles like the sporty Tesla Roadster and capable Bremach T-Rex have gone a long way toward dispelling the perception that electric vehicles are only for your run-of-the-mill tree hugger. Sure, most EV owners would describe themselves as environmentally conscious, but with the variety of electric-powered rides on the market today, EVs can meet more needs than simply cutting down on local CO2 emissions. We've brought you episodes featuring all-electric motorcycles, go-karts, and race cars, but
