While most cars have less than 300 hp, there are some sports cars that can hit 1000 hp or more. In this collab between Reigarw Comparisons and MetaBallStudios, they look at the power produced by everything from a Toyota Corolla to the Thrust SSC rocket car. They also compared cars to airplanes, tanks, and rockets.
Over the years, The Q has made some unique vehicles, from a walking bicycle to a cardboard F1 car. This time out, he set out to build one of those hamster wheel-inspired monowheels, primarily out of wood. We assume the long beams sticking in front of the pedal-powered wheel help act as a counterbalance.
Not too long ago, Colin Furze built himself an incredibly rad, incredibly capable homebrew screw tank. But one thing that it couldn’t do that some military-grade screw tanks can do is float on water. So he’s back to make some mods to improve the balance and buoyancy of his ride, in an attempt to make it seaworthy.
Thanks to MetaBallStudios, we know how big starships and robots are relative to one another. Now, we can see how earthbound vehicles stack up in this comparison video, which looks at the sizes of everything from Ant-Man’s microscopic van to the wheeled city of London in Mortal Engines. We had no idea that an AT-AT was bigger than Gundam.
Previously, inventor Colin Furze teamed up with eBay UK to sponsor a gigantic AT-ACT playhouse and a full-size TIE Silencer ship. For his third Star Wars build, he’s created an awesome replica of Luke Skywalker’s X-34 landspeeder from A New Hope. While it doesn’t hover, it does drive, and is powered by jets. Build video here.
Despite being named the Transit Elevated Bus (TEB), this public transportation vehicle is actually a tram because it only goes over tracks on the road. It’s just that its passenger compartment is raised to let cars pass beneath it. A TEB car can carry up to 300 people.
