I’m gonna be perfectly honest. I didn’t expect DRIVECLUB to hold up so well, and I was one of those gamers that moaned about not getting the PS + edition.

With all the buzz of Le Mans kicking up for the upcoming race, we noticed that Nismo put a 360 degree video rig on a GT-R and took it for a spin around the Circuit de la Sarthe.

Volkswagen Has A New Ad Campaign, And It Involves Old Women

It's no secret that Volkswagen has been struggling to move cars here recently. So far they have resulted to redoing their entire website, sponsoring every sporting event possible, and now they're employing women of the elderly in hopes that shouting in their northern east coast accents will have people running to… » 3/03/15 7:05pm 3/03/15 7:05pm

Two Big Rigs Playing Chicken

The average 18-wheeler is 53 feet long. Let's say it is fully-loaded. Going 60 MPH. Looks about right in this video for the truck coming down the hill towards the camera. It would take him an average 335 feet to stop. That's a little over one football field long. It can take more distance than that, especially in… » 2/26/15 3:24pm 2/26/15 3:24pm
