    Video: Watch these hyper-realistic R/C tractors farm a mini field
    1384552680

    As a teenager, I was obsessed with radio-controlled cars, which led to my purchase of a Team Associated RC10T3 and a Team Losi XXX buggy (remember those?). The fun of owning them was their ability to drive over almost any surface and, crucially, launch off jumps to dizzying heights. But ...

    1352852940

    There's way too much ground to cover at the Las Vegas Convention Center each year at the SEMA Show, so inevitably, some cool stuff always slips through the cracks. Apparently, in our rush to cover 1940 Ford body shells and the ICON Dodge D200, we missed this gem. Top Speed found a video of the ...

    What's the recipe for a great automotive chase scene? Well, first you need to have cars – cool cars, fast cars or classic cars, preferably, along with some machines to actually... well, give chase. Police cars work well, naturally, and they better be fast enough to keep up. Throw in some ...

    ETC: Olympics to use Mini Cooper R/C cars for javelin, discus retrieval
    1343931360

    We can't help but cringe at the notion of 'product integration' efforts most of the time, particularly when it comes to movies and sports. That's because as often as not, the placement efforts seem contrived. And while the notion of using a Mini Cooper to retrieve thrown javelins, hammers, shot ...

    1327971660

    We've finally come to accept the fact that we'll never be Vaughn Gittin Jr. There can be only one one pure-bred drift hooligan of his caliber on this planet and truth be told, our sideways skills are paltry at best.
