Fire Video! A Nitrous Blaze Destroys a Drag Racing Camaro

This is, without question, the worst starting line nitrous fire we have ever seen. Hell, we think the track called Red Adair in to put the sonofabitch out. According to the video description on...

Carnage Video: 4 Minutes of Jumping Muscle Cars

Many BangShifters are totally against wrecking perfectly good old cars in the name of movie action, but we figure that as long as the cars were already wrecked 20-plus years ago, we might as well get...

Carnage Video: Smashing a Ford Aspire at 650 MPH

It seems this was on Mythbusters TV earlier in 2009, but we missed it until we were tipped to it by an item on Autoblog. Now that we have seen this video clip, we’re not sure how our lives were...

Carnage Video: Un-F’ing-Believable In-Car View of a Massive Clutch Explosion

Carnage Video: Guy Falls off a Motorcycle at 200 MPH, Twice!

The engine explosion of the European Maid pulling tractor has graced this website a time or two, but never in high quality television footage. This is the one where the motor explodes and the block...

Carnage Video: Flaming Rollover Crash at Shakedown at E-Town

Carnage Video: Six Minutes of Drag Strip Thrills, Chills, and Spills

This is one killer piece of video! It is non-stop action for more than six minutes and contains more wrecks, wheelies, and close saves than you could possibly imagine. It seems like the majority of...
