  • The raging wildfires that have consumed more than 150,000 acres of northern California this week continue to blaze through the region's famous wine country almost unabated. As evacuations continue and authorities struggle to assess the damage, a dramatic dash cam video posted to Facebook by the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office shows the hellish conditions rescue workers are facing as they continue to raise the alarm and get survivors out of the burn zone.At least 21 people have died in the fires, but that total would be much higher were it not for the tireless efforts of first responders to get people out of the path of the flames. This means traveling through some truly life-threatening conditions to try and help anyone who can't help themselves. According to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office, this insane video was taken by a deputy as he drove down the area's Franz Valley Road "at the onset of the fire's entrance to Sonoma County."The terrifying video i..

  • What is the Z-Edge Z3? The Z-Edge Z3 is a budget-priced dash cam currently selling online for just £85.99. Made by American-registered company Zero Edge Technology LLC, there isn’t much information available about any production premises in the USA. In reality, many dash cams are made in China, so even if this is a Chinese company with a small American foothold, the Z3 could still be worth considering – especially since its Z2 Plus impressed earlier in the year Z-Edge Z3 – Specification and windscreen mounting Unlike the Z2 Plus, the Z3 sports a more conventional form factor. The main body is quite thin, but this is marred by a huge lens protruding from its centre that virtually triples the width. It makes the Z3 look like a compact pocket camera. Z-Edge is slightly modest by calling the Z3 a 2K device, when in fact it offers video resolutions up to 2304 x 1296 at 30fps, or 2560 x 1080 at 30fps – something other manufacturers refer to as Super HD. Full HD (1920 x 1080) is also availa..

  • It can be hard to wrap your mind around the fact that Hurricane Harvey destroyed at least half a million cars when it swamped the Houston region with feet of rain. Even the drone footage we shared last month of the mammoth flooded vehicle holding pens is overwhelming to the point of abstraction. This drive-by clip showing an endless line of water-damaged Audis, Ferraris, Porsches, Maseratis, Teslas, Jaguars, BMWs, and countless other high-end cars should help bring it home.As you watch, keep in mind that this is just one lot, at one storage facility (it appears to be at Royal Purple Raceway), and yet we're looking at millions of dollars in ruined exotics. Trucker Fredo Sanchez recorded the video as he drove through the complex, and it's a stunning one-take portrait of destruction that would make True Detectivenod in nihilistic appreciation.In addition to the brands mentioned up top, there's a Dodge Viper, Dodge Charger Hellcat, Honda S2000, Mercedes-Benz SLS-AMG, Nissa..
