The latest stunt from Nitro Circus’ Life Size Toys is a real doozy. The team built an 8-foot-tall replica of a Duncan butterfly yo-yo. Then, they strapped a pair of daredevils to its sides and lowered it from a 100-foot crane to make it spin. The dizzying ride would test even the most iron of stomachs.
Awesome Travis Pastrana
When we were kids, we loved making little LEGO cars. Thanks to Travis Pastrana and the gang from Nitro Circus, we now have life-size LEGO race cars. As part of their Life Size Toys series, they assembled giant LEGO bricks atop go-karts and raced them around an indoor track until bricks started to fall off. At least they’re easy to snap back together.
Things go completely off the rails in this epic Gymkhana video. Travis Pastrana goes wild on the streets of Florida as he takes on monster trucks, a fighter jet, a drag racer, jet skiers, and a helicopter all while he hoons about in a bonkers 1983 Subaru GL wagon that’s been upgraded with an 864-horsepower engine.
Pro racer Travis Pastrana smashed his own record at the Mt. Washington Hill Climb driving the same 862 hp Subaru WRX STI he used to shred tires in Gymkhana 2020. He absolutely nailed the butt-clenching twists, turns, and drop-offs, recording a time of 5 minutes 28.67 seconds – smoking his closest competitor by 45 seconds.
On July 8, 2018, motorcycle master Travis Pastrana successfully recreated three stunts originally performed by the late Evel Knievel, first jumping over 52 crushed cars, then 16 Greyhound buses, and finally the Caesar’s Palace fountains, which eluded the late daredevil.
