Posted by Colin Wood on April 10, 2021, 7:42 a.m.

Sure, you could use a truck or some other kind of heavy machinery to pull that tree out of the ground, but why bother when you can just use that Delta Integrale you have laying around?

This, of course, makes us wonder: Have you ever done yard work like this with a car?

Posted by Colin Wood on April 8, 2021, 11:26 a.m.

Before we published an in-depth look at his real-life day job, we sat down with stunt driver, autocrosser, and Grassroots Motorsports subscriber Jeremy Fry—jfryjfry on the forum—during a GRM Live! not too long ago.

With work under his belt from films like Baby Driver, John Wick and Drive, Fry gave us a unique look into what it’s really like to be a Hollywood stunt driver.

Since the market is flush with relatively inexpensive and portable LED options, why settle for heavy, expensive shop lights?

What a Burnout Competition Looks Like Through a Thermal Camera | Video
Posted by Colin Wood on April 8, 2021, 6 a.m.

One of the most American things to come out of Australia just might be the burnout contest, where the key is to—you guessed it—make the biggest and baddest burnout possible.

Perhaps in the name of science, or out of sheer curiosity, someone brought a few thermal imaging cameras to one such event, giving us not only a view through the smoke but also a glimpse of just how much abuse the tires go through.

Posted by Chris Tropea on April 5, 2021, 2:21 p.m.

The Titan Fuel Tanks Sidekick allows our Ford F-250 tow rig to carry extra fuel to the track without sacrificing any space in the bed—useful since we added a slide-in camper.

Not only that, but the Sidekick also bolts right in, includes grounding hardware—meaning you don’t have to remove it when you fill up—and comes with an easy-to-use siphon for simple fill-ups at the track. Presented by CRC Industries.

Back in their day, the BMW E30 318is and the Volkswagen Rabbit GTI Mk1 represented inexpensive ways to go fast. Nowadays, either would fit in well on the Radwood showfield, but how do they stack up against each other as performance cars?

Since we have both in our stable, we drove them back to back to find out. Which one would you rather add to your garage? Presented by CRC Industries.

Video: The Evolution of the Hollywood Car Chase
Posted by Colin Wood on March 23, 2021, 3:32 p.m.

When you think of a Hollywood car chase, you probably picture a fastback Mustang plowing its way through San Francisco or a bright red Subaru Impreza WRX running from the police following a bank heist, but the car chase goes back to almost the beginning of film as we know it.

This is how the iconic trope has evolved over the past 100 years or so, from Buster Keaton dodging trains to Dominic Toretto outrunning a submarine in a Dodge Charger.

And while we’re all here, what’s your favorite car chase?

Ever find yourself working on a project and realize that those two pieces of metal that need to be securely bolted together don’t have any threads? Or maybe you’ve found that your fastener’s threads have all but vanished?

As it turns out, both situations can be solved by using a tap and die set. Here is how to use one properly, as well as some tips we’ve picked up over the years through working on our numerous project cars. Presented by CRC Industries.

Having an organized toolbox is one of the first steps to ensuring that your track event goes as smoothly as possible–so if and when something breaks, you aren’t wasting time searching for the 10mm socket.

Here's what we take to the track, especially when running our VW Fox budget racer or our LS-swapped Nissan 350Z. Presented by CRC Industries.
