Motorcycle Vs. Car Drift Battle: The Most Epic Thing You Will Watch Today [Video]

With so many videos on the Internet, we try to reserve the word epic for for the ones that are truly unforgettable. Well, that’s this video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2.

Nick “Apex” Brocha and his Empire teammate, Ernie Vigil, jump on top of their Triumph Speed Triples built by Roaring Toyz and start to go sideways. Ever since Icon made their original video, the team has been searching for the ultimate playground for the sequel and the result of the search landed them in the rolling hills of High Plains County.

Minimal traffic, perfect asphalt and endless twisties allowed the video to be produced in relative peace while riders continued to repave the roads with smoking tires. But of course, sooner or later they attracted the attention of the local authorities and here comes Officer Dan Brockett in his 550-hp Ford Mustang Cobra.

A clever use of cameras and toys in order to grab some crazy angles makes this video one of the best ones on YouTube. Don’t believe us? Check it out below.

2011 Ford Mustang V6 Driveshaft Fails At 135 MPH [Video]

We’re pretty sure this video is more of a testament to the stupidity of some people rather than the shortcomings of Ford‘s V6 Mustang.

First of all, we hardly believe that this individual had the opportunity of driving his Mustang “on a closed road at high speeds”, especially considering the quick glance of the road from the video proves it’s your run-of-the-mill public street. Secondly, there’s a reason why Ford – who has been manufacturing vehicles for over a century – put a speed limiter of 112-mph on their new Mustang V6. Lastly, what were you thinking filming yourself trying to go towards 140-mph while driving the car?

The original poster of the video, who is also the owner of the vehicle, bashes Ford stating that the drivetrain was not designed to handle the power of the engine. No, the drivetrain wasn’t designed for people to remove the speed limiter and try to take their V6 Mustang to 140-mph. There’s a V8 for that.

According to the owner, the broken driveshaft caused write a bit of havoc (as one could expect) to the Mustang. There was a hole in the metal floorpan, major exhaust system and muffler damage, broken transmission shifter, broken parking brake, broken interior plastic trim, etc.

Thankfully the majority of the people commenting on the video gives us hope that not everyone is this silly in believing this is Ford’s fault.

Check out the video after the break.
