The Hoonigan Crew Lists Their Favorite Burnouts From 2017: Video

The Hoonigan Crew Lists Their Favorite Burnouts From 2017: Video

Rolling into the new year on a cloud of pulverized rubber

As we count down the few remaining hours of 2017, it’s always a fun time to look back at the good stuff of the past year. As such, we listed our favorite and least favorite cars of the year, recapped the debuts that either made a big splash or a big flop, and generally argued about which opinions were right and which were obviously wrong. Looks like our friends over at The Hoonigans YouTube channel are feeling the same New Years nostalgia, and as such, they put together the above-featured video listing their favorite burnouts from 2017.

Of course, The Hoonigans aren’t exactly newbies when it comes to smoking the meats. Under the tutelage of the Hoon Master General himself, Mr. Ken Block, these folks know exactly what it takes to execute a proper burnout. And we’re not talking about just revving it up and dumping the clutch – any high schooler with a busted old V-8 and a learner’s permit can do that. No, we’re talking about the art of a burnout, with something unique to lay it all down, engine note screaming in ear-pleasing internal combustion, a fine fog of vaporized tire streaming forth into the atmosphere. The Hoonigans certainly know their stuff when it comes to the art of the burnout, and this thirteen-and-a-half minute video is a lovely display of that time-honored tradition that is the gross display of power over grip.

Picking a best of the bunch isn’t easy given the quality of tire killing on display here, so we’ll leave it up to you to post in the comments your personal favorite.

Take A Trip To Octane Island With Danny Trejo: Video

Take A Trip To Octane Island With Danny Trejo: Video

The ad to end all ads

Look, we know what you want. Burnouts. Lots of horsepower. High speed. Roaring supercharged V-8 engines. Wheelies. Danny Trejo being a badass. We couldn’t agree more, and as such, we’d like to present you with the following 3-minute video. Created by Supercheap Auto, a car parts company based out of Australia that should definitely consider getting into full-time video production, the video has all of the above and more, and is a seriously entertaining watch. The basics are straightforward – a group of enthusiasts are dropped via helicopter onto an abandoned island. There, they run into Trejo, who’s apparently the head honcho running the whole thing. The enthusiasts are then recruited to drive fast and burn rubber. No reason is given, but none is needed – you’ll be too busy enjoying yourself to ask questions. It’s like Fast & Furious meets Escape From L.A., plus an extra dose of tire smoke just for good measure.

No joke, we’ve watched this thing all the way through more than a few times now. We have no idea what’s going on, and we don’t care. Just hit play, sit back, and enjoy the show.

The Toyota GT 86 Re-Establishes Its Claim As The King Of Endurance Drifting

The Toyota GT 86 Re-Establishes Its Claim As The King Of Endurance Drifting

Japanese sports coupe goes 100 miles in constant drifting

The Toyota GT86 has had a very interesting life since it burst onto the scene in 2012. It’s captivated and frustrated people from all corners of the world, and to this day, it still finds a way to make headlines. In fact, the 86’s latest news-grabbing episode has all to do with the Guinness Book of World Records, specifically the car etching its name into rarefied air by setting a new record for the world’s longest drift, going a distance of 102.5 miles with its tail out and eclipsing the previous record of 89 miles.

South African journalist Jesse Adams takes the distinction of piloting the 86 in the record slide, upending German racer Harald Müller’s record-setting attempt in 2014, which he set while drifting… a Toyota GT86. So basically, the GT86 beat the GT86 for the record, an achievement not lost on anyone who swears by the coupe’s ability to kick its rear out for extended periods of time. The record has yet to be verified by representatives from the Guinness world records, but all signs point to it getting the nod since the model that was used was largely stock in configuration except for the larger fuel tank that was put in place in the spare-tire well. So once more, all hail the Toyota GT86 as the kind of endurance drifting. I’d say it’s a title that the car isn’t too keen on giving up anytime soon.

The Hoonigan Crew Goes Opposite Lock In Crosskarts: Video

The Hoonigan Crew Goes Opposite Lock In Crosskarts: Video

This is the kinda field trip we like

The major automakers boast all the time about offering a “pure” driving experience, but even the most hardcore street machines can’t compete with this – say hello to the Crosskart. Essentially a four-wheeled, rear-engine, high-performance speed pod, this is a machine that you wear like a tight pair of jeans. Strap into the single-seat cockpit, plug in the steering wheel, and hit the throttle, and you’ll be enjoying the high-revs of a 750 cc engine motivating the rear axle through a six-speed sequential transmission. Course corrections come courtesy of a quick-ratio steering system and hydraulic handbrake, and with roughly 150 horses on tap to motivate just 680 pounds of curb weight, rest assured it’s got what it takes to tap into your adrenaline reserves. And that’s exactly what the Hoonigan folks got to experience, as documented in this 14-minute video.

The video follows the crew on a field trip to Grange Motor Circuit in Southern California, where Crosskart USA provided a few examples of the aforementioned speed pods. Per usual, the Hoonigans put their feet down and hang the ass end out, displaying some slick tandem drifts on the tight race track. Hearing the engine scream alongside the screeching tire noise is a real treat, while the in-car shots and jaw-dropping drone footage capture what appears to be illegal levels of fun. Sign us up. Please?

Car Throttle Gets Technical About Getting Sideways: Video

Car Throttle Gets Technical About Getting Sideways: Video

Making sense of steering with your right foot

The term “drifting” gets thrown around a lot these days. Hell, some manufacturers will even add it as a specific driving mode. But what is drifting really, and how is it different from any other form of ass-out oversteer? Car Throttle decided to drill down and figure it out in this nine-minute, 51-second video. Commence the tire smoke.

At the heart of the video is the difference between powersliding and drifting, which is explained by Car Throttle’s resident “Driving Badass” Alex Gassman as such – “drifting is everything you do on the way into a corner and powersliding is what happens after the apex.”

Sounds simple enough. Playing the part of tire killer for this demonstration is BMW’s M2 coupe, which manages to kick out the rear with ease thanks to the 365 horses provided by a front-mounted turbocharged six-cylinder. It also looks pretty good doing the whole sideways in slo-mo thing.

Gassman not only demonstrates both types of oversteer, but also provides some helpful hints if you wanna try it out for yourself at your local closed course. Of course, if you do decide to explore either drifting or powersliding, make sure you do it legally in a safe, controlled, environment.

Focus RS Drift Mode Created By Accident And We're All Better For It

Focus RS Drift Mode Created By Accident And We’re All Better For It

Glorious sideways action for the masses reveals dangerous double standard

Accidents aren’t always bad. In 1928, Alexander Fleming accidently discovered penicillin after a petri dish was left exposed near an open window. And while the new Ford Focus RS probably won’t be wiping out any deadly, civilization-threatening bacteria any time soon, it will be fun as hell to play around with, especially with the ass-out AWD antics of Drift Mode activated – a feature that was apparently just an accident.

In a recent report from Australian publication Motoring, Tyrone Johnson, vehicle and engineering manager at Ford Performance, revealed that the crossed-up handling setting was originally discovered during the development of the RS’ AWD system, and was not part of the hot hatch’s original design plan.

Johnson said that it all started with a test session conducted by two engineers, one behind the wheel, the other in the passenger seat tweaking the AWD with a laptop.

“And they are talking and he says ‘oh let me try this out’ and he tries it and he says ‘oh that’s cool can you give me more of that’ and he gives him more and he says ‘that’s really cool’ and then it starts working,” Johnson said. “I guess it’s just because we are a bunch of crazy guys. We just do things.”

After exhibiting the benefits of Drift Mode to global technical and development chief Raj Nair, the feature was officially slated for production.

Ford says Drift Mode is not for use on public roads, but that hasn’t stopped safety groups from voicing their outrage at its inclusion on the new Focus RS. Some have even demanded that it be outlawed.

Unsurprisingly, we here at TopSpeed think the controversy is simply ridiculous. What’s more, it reveals an equally absurd (and potentially dangerous) double standard.

Read on for our defense of Drift Mode.

Drifting Tanks Make For Awesome Viewing: Video

Drifting Tanks Make For Awesome Viewing: Video

Drifting cars are awesome. They bring some joy to my life. But you know what’s better than drifting cars? Drifting tanks and Assault Amphibious Vehicles (AAVs)!

Check this video out: that’s the United States Marine Corps. performing joint exercises with the Norwegian Telemark Battalion in the wintry landscape of Norway. Part of this training apparently involves driving tanks and AAVs in frigid environments. And, as the video so awesomely demonstrates, the sight of these 60-plus ton machines of warfare performing drifts is pretty incredible.

I can’t even begin to imagine how difficult it is to drive normal cars in conditions like this, but a tank and an AAV? Forget about it. This is some specialized skill we’re watching here. It may look awesome from our perspective because we only get to watch it, but for those guys, this is the kind of skill that could play a huge role in winning a battle.

Much respect to these fellas.

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

Mitsubishi Pulls Prank on Customers with Drifting Saleswoman

We’ve seen this stunt before – an unsuspecting person rides shotgun with what appears to be a bumbling idiot or ignorant girl, only to be taken for the ride of their life. That’s exactly what happens here in this Mitsubishi bit. It’s still no less exciting.

The star is Leona Chin, a pro driver from Malaysia. Chin poses as a saleswoman in a Mitsubishi dealership trying to answer questions about the new Triton pickup truck. The reaction from her male customers is rather hilarious, ranging from the classic “What’s a pretty girl like you doing here?” to a more chauvinistic, “This is a man’s truck, let me drive.”

I won’t ruin all the video’s surprises and fun, but know that Chin does a great job of showing these dudes how to handle a truck. Chin shows impressive skill in getting the top-heavy and moderately powered Triton truck sideways on dry pavement. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Helicopter Vs Drifting Toyota GT86: Video

Helicopter Vs Drifting Toyota GT86: Video

Felix Baumgartner became a household name when he bailed out of a perfectly good, balloon-borne craft and parachuted back to earth from 24 miles up. While that certainly took nerve, his latest stunt shows his prowess with the Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm Bo-105 helicopter, and I gotta say, the man has mad skills. Felix chose Polish racer Jakub Przygoński for his drifting skills in a slightly modified Toyota GT 86 to serve as his “worthy opponent” in this little skills battle. All Felix has to do is keep up with a 1,000-horsepower race car – sounds simple, right?

The event, simply called “Red Bull Heli Drifting,” took place at the Debrzno Airfield, where the athletes and film crews would have plenty of room to work. (Face it, nobody wants to be too close if the heli and the car get tangled up.)

The resulting video footage will have you on the edge of your seat, and even non-pilots can appreciate the skill displayed by both men. My wife and fellow writer, Allyn Hinton, took one look at the stillshots and said “I’m glad I’m not his mother/wife/girlfriend!” Little does she know that I would do this in a heartbeat if I were even half as good as Felix.

Chevy Silverado 2500HD Proves Work Trucks Can Drift

Chevy Silverado 2500HD Proves Work Trucks Can Drift

Who says pickup trucks can’t drift? And I’m not talking about custom-built rigs like Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s F-150 Street Truck. No, this is a high-riding, 4WD, Chevy Silverado 2500HD with a cargo rack, a missing tailgate, and a banged-up front bumper. This truck seems about as ordinary as it gets.

Chevy Silverado 2500HD Proves Work Trucks Can Drift

Who says pickup trucks can’t drift? And I’m not talking about custom-built rigs like Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s F-150 Street Truck. No, this is a high-riding, 4WD, Chevy Silverado 2500HD with a cargo rack, a missing tailgate, and a banged-up front bumper. This truck seems about as ordinary as it gets.

The video description says this Silverado is a 2002 model with the 6.0-liter V-8, but judging by its gratuitous burnouts and ability to dance sideways, the V-8 is either modified with more power than its stock 300 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque, or the monstrous 8.1-liter V-8 is really lurking under the hood.

That 8.1-liter was introduced in 2001 in the General Motors HD truck lineup and lasted through 2006. It produces a respectable 340 horsepower and a raucous 455 pound-feet of torque. That would be more than adequate power to morph those skinny tires into spinning hoops of smoke.

Regardless of what engine is under this Chevy’s hood, it let’s this workin’ man have fun on the track.

Tesla Model S Can Drift: Video

Tesla Model S Can Drift: Video

The more impressive videos showing what the Tesla Model S can do tend to show it traveling in a straight line. That makes sense, because the instant torque produced by the electric motors is good for drag racing. But heavy battery packs and electronic nannies that step in to prevent you from having too much fun for any sort of prolonged period mean that just about anything other than drag racing has usually been out of the question. And while a lack of Nurburgring lap times for the Model S might continue to be a problem, we can say that someone has successfully managed some pretty decent drifting in one.

The video comes from Japan, where driver Nobuteru Taniguchi manages to get the car sideways and even to produce a respectable amount of tire smoke. Unfortunately, if the car has been modified in order to produce these results, we don’t know what those modifications were. It doesn’t quite drift like an old Silvia does, but this is likely to be the best drifting you’ve seen from a pure electric car so far.
Is nothing sacred?

How To Race Your Car: Part 2

How To Race Your Car: Part 2

Pick your poison – whether it’s a full-throttle blitz down the quarter mile, heavy trail braking at the autocross, a frenzied dice on the road course, a driveline-thrashing clutch kick at the drift event, or gravel-chucking insanity in a rally car, racing can transform even the most mild-mannered citizen into a superhero.

The truth is a lot of people have the desire, but end up couching it for one reason or another. Expense, accessibility, even intimidation can keep would-be racers at home. But here’s the thing – taking your passion to its limits is easier than you might think.

In Part 1 of this series, I gave a general overview of different entry-level motorsports, a few of the more prominent race organizations operating in the U.S., what to bring to the track, and what to expect once you get there.

For Part 2, I’ll dig a little deeper into the specifics of amateur auto racing, including car suggestions, a breakdown of costs, and an analysis of modifications.

Toyota GT 86 Drifted On Mountain Pass: Video

Toyota GT 86 Drifted On Mountain Pass: Video

Sympathy is not a common trait among racing drivers, no matter the category. Watch a GT race and you’re sure to witness plenty of fender rubbing as those behind the wheel attempt to edge out rivals. Rally pilots will literally roll a car into the undergrowth, get out, tip the thing so the rubber is facing down, and continue on their way.

And as this video clearly demonstrates, drifters are no better. Never mind the twisted suspension or dented bodywork wrought by a crash. Even when a drifter gets it right, it’s not necessarily good news for the machine in question — particularly the engine.

That’s because drifters are usually far too concerned with maintaining a slide to bother with things like bent valves, spun bearings, and shattered pistons. There’s steering angle, weight transfer, and momentum flowing through their brains, not the wrench time required to fix all the nasty results of a pinned right foot.

Thankfully, there are some engines out there that revel in the abuse. One such masochistic powerplant is the Toyota 2JZ, most commonly known as the motive force lurking under the hood of the fourth generation Supra. This overbuilt, 3.0-liter inline-six boasts a reputation for being absolutely bulletproof. Some even claim it’s capable of producing 1,000 horsepower on a stock bottom end.

Hit play to witness evidence of its sturdiness, not to mention a thrilling first-person perspective of a prolonged skid up a Norwegian mountain pass.

Video: "High Octane DRIFT"

Video: "High Octane DRIFT"

Staying competitive in the world of professional motorsports takes more than just passion; the hard truth is it takes several big sponsors and loads of resources, too. Practice makes perfect, but putting in a few sideways laps around a racetrack can be anything but cheap. Plenty of folks have the desire, but few can stay afloat long enough to snag the support needed to swing with the big boys.

Enter Canadian drift driver Brad Carlton. Carlton met the challenge this past September when Formula DRIFT came to Quebec to give locals an opportunity to match smoke against some of the best drifters in the world. Carlton’s V8-powered Nissan S13, a daily driver turned racecar, certainly had some stiff competition when pitched against the perfectly tuned, mega-horsepower, factory-sponsored rides that the pros deployed on track.

Aftermarket automotive lighting provider SYLVANIA was there to capture some of the action and talk to Carlton about the hardships facing an up-and-coming driver in Formula DRIFT. The short film is moody and artistic, with a healthy dose of tire-shredding as well.

Despite a serious disadvantage, Carlton managed to qualify in the top 16 at the event. Hopefully, with a little exposure and a company like SYLVANIA behind him, Carlton can continue to turn wheels against Formula D big shots like Chris Forsberg, Vaughn Gittin Jr., and Conrad Grunewald.

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a privateer in a professional race series? Press play to get a taste.

Video: Matt Farah Drives The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat In The Rain

We all know how awesome the Challenger Hellcat is. We also know that thanks to its 707 horsepower supercharged V-8 it has some issues with traction. So what happens if you find yourself out and about with a Hellcat, and the heavens have poured gallons of the wet stuff onto the roadways? Well if this new video from /Drive is anything to go by, you will be very sideways and you will giggle a lot.

At the recent launch for Dodge’s new performance darling, they brought all the journalists to Portland, Oregon, where it rains — a lot. What ends up happening is a lot of track time on a soaked surface. Matt Farah is our wheelman for this episode and he spends lots of time in a drift, and lots of time with a smile on his face.

If you are like me and you love to see to top-notch hooligan antics, just go ahead and hit that play button. Don’t forget to turn that volume up; the engine audio in this video is particularly good, and you get lots of that deep grumble and lovely supercharger whine.

Enjoy.

Video: Red Bull RB8 Burnout Filmed In Infrared is All Sorts of Awesome

Leave it to Red Bull to pull off a stunt like this. The F1 racing team got the help of FLIR, the leading company in infrared camera systems, to do some high-speed infrared video of its car commencing in gratuitous burnouts.

The video provided by the high-speed FLIR cameras is absolutely stunning, with hot pebbles of rubber and scorching exhaust gases showering front and rear of the racecar. The slow motion effects add all the more drama. The footage was captured at the GAMMA Racing Day 2014 at the famed TT circuit Assen.

FLIR captured these shots with several of its camera systems, including the T650sc, the B660, and the x6580sc for high-speed shots. FLIR is the world’s largest company specializing in infrared cameras has supplies cameras to everyone from the U.S. Military, to BMW for uses in their vehicles, to a consumer-based infrared camera for the iPhone.

Video: RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsche 911 Makes Some Tasty Donuts

Video: RAUH-Welt Begriff Porsche 911 Makes Some Tasty Donuts

Good morning, TopSpeeders; we’re serving up a hot helping of vulcanized donuts for your visual consumption. Today’s chef is Brian Scotto and his 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo do the cooking. This isn’t just a regular 911 Turbo, this Porsche has been worked over by the Japanese company Rauh-Welt Begriff. Scotto and RWB have done some serious modifications to the Porsche, not exclusive to that outlandish body kit. The car’s suspension sits an inch and a half lower, and it rides on 265/40 series tires up front and crazy-big 315/30 series tires out back. The rubber wraps wheels from Fifteen52 sized in 18-by-11 inches and 18-by-12 inches respectively.

Since the car was built just days before the 2011 SEMA show, Scotto and RWB initially left the engine and drivetrain alone. That meant the turbocharged, 3.3-liter, flat-six engine originally cranked out 315 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 332 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm. Those were pretty healthy stats for a car built over 20 years ago. However in recent times, the guys at BBI Autosport slapped on a new exhaust and engine management tuning to squeeze an estimated 440 horses from the rear-mounted engine.

The story behind this Porsche’s trip to SEMA circles around Scotto’s and co-operator and WRC driver Ken Block’s launching of the Hoonigan brand. The Porsche served as the point car and help differentiate Block as an independent driver not attached to Ford.

All that’s well and good, but donuts are more fun. So enjoy this heaping helping of tire-burning, smoke-billowing, hooning fun. And make sure not to miss the vintage Mr. Donuts reference in the video.

Video: Toyota GT 86 Sets a New Drifting Record

Video: Toyota GT 86 Sets a New Drifting Record

The Toyota GT 86 may have lost some of its appeal since arriving in 2012, but it’s still capable of making the right kind of headlines. One of those times arrived when German driver Harald Muller set a world record for the longest drift. His car of choice? A specially prepared Toyota GT 86.

The record-breaking attempt happened in Samsun, Turkey on July 15th. During the event, Muller was able to drift the GT 86 a grand total of 89.55 miles, shattering the previous record of 51.278 miles set last year by BMW Performance Center instructor Jeff Schwartz. Muller’s performance is pretty incredible, one that was made even more impressive when you consider that he completed 612 laps in a somewhat continuous drift. The feat also took 2 hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds, which is a pretty long time to go around in circles without even taking so much as a water break in between.

It’s a pretty cool feat even though it seemed like the GT 86 appeared to lose momentum on a couple of occasions. But hey, a record’s a record and Muller’s performance was good enough to receive the Guinness Book of World Record’s stamp of approval. Harald Muller now holds the record for longest drift, setting a new benchmark that a lot of drifters will probably try to break in the near future.

Video: BMW M235i Coupes Gather for a Driftmob in Cape Town

BMW’s teaser showing what appeared to be a high-performance version of the 2 Series coupe turned out to be nothing more than an M235i, and not the M2 we were hoping. Fortunately, the photo was actually previewing a two-minute video showing BMW’s latest driftmob in Cape Town, South Africa. What’s a driftmob, you may ask? Well, it basically consists of several vehicles, in this case M235i coupes, drifting together based on a specific, preset scenario.

For this epic driftmob, BMW also brought together some of the best drifters in the world, including world champion Rhys Millen and the likes of Rich Rutherford, Samuel Hubinette, Conrad Grunewald and Daijiro Yoshihara. The result is about 90 seconds of tail-happy BMWs burning their tires in a roundabout. Not only that, but the coupes dance together with the utmost precision in a performance worthy of an automotive Oscar.

Furthermore, the footage shows just how what an awesome machine the M235i is, although some modifications were required for the scene. The DSC was turned off and the handbrake and gearshift levers were optimized for easier control, but that doesn’t mean the M235i is less drifty in standard guise. However, you shouldn’t try this on public roads, but rather test your skills on a race track or traffic-free road course.

Video: Subaru WRX STI & BRZ Gymkhana

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and apparently the driver in these two videos has love for bread and milk on a whole other level. Or perhaps he just needed an excuse to go drifting around town on what is normally a mundane grocery run.

The two videos include some pretty sweet gymkhana-style action around dirt roads, farms, and rock quarries. Not to spoil the fun, but the story line in both videos revolved around our hotshoe friend realizing he’s out of ingredients to make his girl a tasty breakfast. As the girl slowly realizes her Subaru-owning man isn’t in bed with her, she awakens and walks into the kitchen only to find him preparing a meal with the just-snatched ingredients.

Besides implying that owning a Subaru and hooning it like Ken Block will save your romantic relationship, the videos are extremely entertaining to watch. They may not be the most professionally shot videos in the world, but the content sure makes up for quality.

Above is the new2015 Subaru WRX STI hooning about and below the jump is the current Subaru BRZ doing its thing. Both are fun watches, so be sure to check them both out.

Video: Volkswagen Teaches You How To "Turbocharge The Everyday"

Video: Volkswagen Teaches You How To "Turbocharge The Everyday"

Volkswagen’s new commercial for the Golf GTI might as well be called "notice your environment." The whole concept is pretty unique: get a new Golf GTI, stick around 30 GoPro cameras on it, and then have Tanner Foust do whatever he wants with the sports hatch.

It seemed simple enough, at least until it appeared that we also had a chance to "interact" with the commercial to see multiple views of specific moments in the ad.

So when you’re watching Volkswagen’s "Turbocharge The Everyday" commercial for the Golf GTI, pay attention to the left side of the screen. At certain moments, you’ll be given a choice of different views you can switch to. That’s when the video jumps to another part of the ad, showing the exact same scene from the view of a different GoPro camera.

It admittedly took us a while to get it, but once we did, the commercial became a lot more enjoyable to watch. Watching Tanner Foust do all those burnouts on the Golf GTI didn’t hurt our viewing experience either.
