This RC Car Chase Blows Away Some Hollywood Blockbusters

You may never again be able to justify spending your hard-earned cash at the movie theater when you see what a group of incredibly talented amateur filmmakers are able to pull off with a small fleet of RC cars. Working with the video game developers behind Need for Speed: Most Wanted and a skilled crew, Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatsch created this scale police chase action sequence that is just as impressive as multi-million dollar Hollywood productions. All the requisite cliches are there, including smashed fruit stands, flipped cop cars, and a helicopter giving chase. It’s just that everything happens on a far smaller scale—except the action. And the making of video is just as fascinating to watch. Although, the lack of tiny RC crew trailers or a miniature craft services truck is a little disappointing. Source: Gizmodo

Hyundai creates 400-HP Veloster Turbo Velocity concept for SEMA

  Hyundai has already released renderings of its Cosworth-tuned Genesis Coupe that will be on display at the2012 SEMA Show, and with the show just a couple more weeks away, Hyundai is now teasing a souped-upVeloster headed to Las Vegas. The Hyundai Veloster Turbo Velocity concept was designed at Hyundai’s America Technical Center in Irvine, CA to be a street car that is also trackable. To start, Hyundai had the Veloster Turbo’s stock engine sent off to Cosworth for new internal components, turbocharger, intercooler, intake manifold and engine controller, and it was finished off with a custom exhaust system. The result gives the Velocity concept more than 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet. To handle the track, Hyundai also upgraded the car’s suspension and brakes. SEMA concepts are known for their flashy, over-the-top designs, and the Velocity will not disappoint with its wide body kit, a massive rear wing and a white-painted roof that gives the car a custom chopped look. Intending to prove this concept is ready for the track, the Velocity also comes with a full roll bar, data acquisition hardware and racing harnesses. We’ll have live images of the Veloster Turbo Velocity concept for you in a couple weeks, but until then, Hyundai has included a press release and a quick video of its SEMA-bound concept that we’ve posted below Read more
