THE BEST Fast

World’s Fastest Backhoe

World’s Fastest Backhoe

Unless you need to move quickly between construction sites, we can see no practical reason to build a backhoe that can drive 73mph. But that didn’t stop JCB from proving it could be done, with pro driver Matthew Lucas at its controls.

GT-R Ice Driving

GT-R Ice Driving

Driver Roman Rusinov powers the 540hp AWD Nissan GT-R to a staggering speed of 182.8mph in the car known as “Godzilla” across the icy surface of Siberia’s frozen Lake Baikal, breaking the previous Russian ice-driving record.

Speeding Tank

Speeding Tank

While you might think of tanks as slow-moving vehicles, it turns out that some of them can actually drive quite quickly. Here’s the Leclerc MBT tearing up desert at nearly 45mph. Though it still can’t beat this tank.

Insanely Fast Robot

Insanely Fast Robot

We’ve always assumed the main reason that robots are in factories was to reduce labor costs. But after watching this clip of the Stäubli TP80, you’ll realize our future masters have another major advantage.

Speedy Potato Peeling

Speedy Potato Peeling

We already know how to peel garlic in a jiffy, so let’s add one more speed-up to our kitchen repertoire, with the fastest way to remove a baked potato skin (though we still like to eat ours.)

Rubik’s Cube Blindfold Record

Rubik’s Cube Blindfold Record

Speedcuber Marcell Endrey recently set a world record for solving a standard 3×3 Rubik’s Cube while blindfolded at 28.8s. We wouldn’t be able to solve the damned thing if we had ten eyes.

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

Jet-Powered R/C Plane

This turbine powered R/C plane sounds more like an F-16 than a toy, reaching top speeds over 360mph. We have no idea how you can fly and land this thing remotely without crashing it.

Driving at 462 MPH

Driving at 462 MPH

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it might be like to race down the road at nearly 500 MPH, lean back, drop into full-screen 1080p, and watch the Speed Demon fly from every conceivable angle.

Rubik’s Cube World Record

Rubik’s Cube World Record

Powered by a Samsung Galaxy SII and LEGO NXT, the CubeStormer II robot beat the human record for solving the Cube, with a time of just 5.35 secs. We certainly can’t rearrange stickers that fast.

Opening Bottles Like a Boss

Opening Bottles Like a Boss

While he might not crack open 200 beer bottles in 80 seconds, we give this waiter the win on style points as he rapidly opens a whole tray of bottles with a few flicks of his wrist.

Inside the Fastest Bike

Inside the Fastest Bike

Go for a ride inside the cockpit with driver Rocky Robinson as he sets the land speed record for a 2-wheel streamlined motorcycle, zipping along the Bonneville Salt Flats at a gut-rumbling 376mph.

Nürburgring FWD Record

Nürburgring FWD Record

Renault takes us on a record-smashing 8:07.79 ride around Nürburgring in the Mégane RS Trophy, making it the fastest-ever lap around the track in a production FWD car. Impressive for a 265hp car.

Fast Five (Trailer 2)

Fast Five (Trailer 2)

The newest trailer for Justin Lin’s Fast Five isn’t too different from the previous one, unless you count more action, more stunts, more explosions and a little $100 million dollar bank heist as the same.

Fast Five (Trailer)

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker lead a reunion of all-stars from every chapter of the F&F franchise for Fast Five; Dwayne Johnson joins returning favorites for this ultimate high-stakes race.

The 100 MPH Lawnmower

The 100 MPH Lawnmower

Actually, this tricked out lawnmower has only been tested at about 60 MPH so far, but the guys at Project Runningblade are going for a record 100 MPH run on 5/22 – 5/23 at Pendine Sands.
