Stunts

Zero-G Pit Stop

Zero-G Pit Stop

We already know that the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 team is crazy fast at pit stops. But they recently were challenged to slow down and take their time. The big difference? They, their tools, wheels, and the car itself were all floating weightless in an Ilyushin Il-76 MDK cosmonaut training plane, 33,000 feet above earth.

Juggler Dan Foley recently posted a video of himself tossing about three metal lawn chairs, each with its legs set ablaze.

Rider Johannes Fischbach hopes to someday break the record for the world’s longest mountain bike jump. He recently made an attempt off of a 140-meter (459 ft) ski jump, but unfortunately couldn’t stick the landing. Amazingly, he got up and walked away from this terrifying stunt.

Felipe Nunes is a double amputee, but that doesn’t hold him back from his love for skateboarding.

Moonwalk to Backflip

Moonwalk to Backflip

(LOUD) If you’ve never been to a monster truck rally, you owe it to yourself to view the madness first hand. You could see crazy stuff like this Monster Jam, where driver Neil Elliott managed to not only keep his truck on two wheels and do a moonwalk, but then run it up a ramp backwards.

Moving Trampoline Stunt

Moving Trampoline Stunt

You’d think that bouncing on a trampoline while it’s being driven down the road would be a bad idea. You’d probably be right, but at least the guys from the Dunking Devils Squad have physics on their side as the forward momentum of both the trampoline and jumpers keep them in sync.

Danny Daycare

Danny Daycare

Playing with Fire

Playing with Fire
