  • It's deer season right now across much of the United States, and pheromone-crazed bucks are starting to filter through the landscape as the rut approaches. Even if you're not a hunter, it's likely you'll notice an extra few trampling through your yard, or locking antlers....or sometimes, jumping directly in front of your car after materializing from the roadside brush less than a second before.A man named Adam Nichol uploaded a video to YouTube this week that perfectly illustrates that danger. He writes on reddit that he was driving his Header Orange 2014 Dodge Charger R/T (equipped with the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8) with his dash cam rolling on Monday morning in a rural area, when the eight-point buck ran out in front of his car. You can see in the video that the deer comes out of nowhere, leaping out of a ditch obscured by tall grass and ending up directly in the Charger's path in less than a second. It's a scary reminder of how quickly things can go down.So..

  • After modifying the Yaris for its return to WRC competition, Toyota is bringing it down-under to run in the Australian Rally Championship. While the WRC Yaris is a bit beefier with more aero bits and a huge wing on the back, the AP4 rally regulations for Australia and New Zealand keep the car looking a bit more like the Yaris that you might buy at a dealership. But don't let its unassuming looks fool you. This is not an ordinary Yaris.The Toyota Yaris AP4 is an angry all-wheel drive, 300 horsepower, dirt-slinging little monster. The engine is de-stroked from a 1.8-liter to a 1.6-liter four-cylinder from the Celica and Corolla Sportivo (a hot hatch version of the Corolla that was available in Australia) with a Garrett 2860 turbocharger added. It's the same engine as its WRC brother, but with slightly different regulations. The AP4 comes in at about 80 hp less than the WRC version. In the pictures below, you can see the differences between the AP4 and WRC Yaris. The AP4 is m..

  • Head Hoonigan in Charge, Ken Block, is known for his yearly Gymkhana series. For 2017, we are not getting a Gymkhana video, but hold your tears because we are getting two Ken Block spin off series Terrakhana and Climbkhana instead. Terrakhana was released late last month. It featured Block driving his 600-horsepower Ford Fiesta ST RX43 Gymkhana 8-star car through the desert of Swing Arm City, Utah. Terrakhana was a surprise and a well-kept secret which was only teased a few days before release, but Climbkhana has been teased for nearly a year now. We first got our look at the car Block will be driving in Climbkhana when he was making Methmallows with it. The car was version 2 of his famous Hoonicorn Gymkhana 7-star car. It is basically the Hoonicorn with the dial turned up by slapping twin turbos on a V-8 engine and having it run on methanol, giving it 1,400-horsepower. To put that in perspective, the original monster Hoonicorn only had around 850 hp. "Only." The twin-turbo set up c..

  • Matt drove this same car a few years ago for /Drive on YouTube, but being that Larry just doesn't know when to leave well enough alone, the car is now significantly different than it was back then. While the car still has the same built-up 3.8 liter, the car has completely been restored from basically the ground up. There was a bit of rust in the cowl of the car that ended with Larry completely removing the roof and replacing it with a slicktop sunroof-delete roof panel. Being that the car is a year-round driver for Larry, as well as his track rat, this Carrera 4 has been built up into exactly what he wants out of the thing. Even though he'd driven it before, it was far enough removed from recent memory that driving this car was basically a new experience for Matt. You see a few moments when he hammers the throttle that his face lights up, and you know that he's really having fun with this Porsche. Even with all wheel drive, this car is built for the track. It features ..

  • Tuner Chris Boyette of Chris’s Epic Tuning Service in the Detroit area describes himself as a Honda J series specialist with 12 years experience in EFI tuning. All of that J series expertise is on full display in his twin-turbo Honda S2000 which he claims is the first of its kind in the world.Boyette’s teal S2000 ditches its venerable F-series inline-four engine for a J32A2 3.2-liter V-6, which originally saw duty in the Type-S variants of the Acura CL and TL in the early 2000s. In stock form, this rev-happy SOHC VTEC V-6 makes 260 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 232 foot-pounds of torque.That would normally be enough to give an S2000 a nice little boost in performance, but it wasn’t nearly enough for Boyette. He added two turbochargers, ported heads, MGP aluminum rods, and CP low compression pistons according to Engine Swap Depot. The heavily modified V-6 is lashed to a Powerglide two-speed automatic and a Ford 8.8-inch rear end.Those two turbochargers worked together to make 45 psi of ..

  • We've seen people swap everything from Subaru motors to Hayabusa bike engines into the classic Fiat 500, but this modern day example is something all of its own. With the turbocharged 1.7-liter turbo four pot from an Alfa Romeo 4C under its hood, the Giannini 350 GP Anniversario is a special twist on the Italian compact. It's got carbon fiber widebody construction and sends power to the rear wheels, all contributing to what must be the most fun you can have in something so small.As you'd expect, the "350" in the GP Anniversario's name indicates the horsepower figure, more than enough to propel the penny racer's lightweight architecture. That's 113 more horsepower than you get in the typical Alfa 4C, and 190 more than the standard Fiat 500 Abarth. The engine is mounted in the middle of the car with power going to a manual transmission, keeping the fun spirit alive through the car's more-than-peppy powertrain.It's not just uber powerful, either,..

  • Video footage has leaked on social media showing a Russian Ka-52 Alligator attack helicopter accidentally firing rockets at observers during a training exercise, reportedly part of the larger Zapad 2017 events happening along the country's western borders. Though it acknowledged the incident occurred, the Kremlin has denied that it was related to the massive war game, but declined to give any other details.The clips that initially emerged on Sept. 19, 2017, show a pair of Ka-52s flying toward a ground of troops and civilians apparently watching a military maneuver. One of them then unexpectedly fires a pair of rocket into the onlookers, damaging a number of vehicles, including a civilian car and what appears to be a mobile command center truck.Another video subsequently appeared online, showing what looked like the view through the Ka-52’s Heads Up Display system. The exact circumstances of the incident are still unclear. One unconfirmed written statement said that the helicopte..
