There has been, and always will be a market for pickup trucks. From the Ford F-150 to the Chevrolet Silverado, these utilitarian vehicles have been a staple in many American homes for decades. But there’s a new sector of the market that’s growing at a rapid rate: the super truck. We thought Ford might have outdone it’s competitors with the F-150 Raptor, but then Ram introduced the insanity that is the TRX. In a YouTube video posted by tuners Callaway, we get to witness the TRX go head-to-head with the Callaway-tuned Silverado SC602 in a series of straight-line races. And let’s just say the results are interesting. We won’t say any more than that. Check it out, right here.

It doesn’t get much better than a 1970 Dodge Charger…until you put it on an off-road chassis. Dennis McCarthy has made this concept a reality and the result is a dream car come true. This Charger, set on a Pro 2 chassis belongs to the Furious 7 film franchise and it’s no wonder why. This ride’s got the looks of muscle cars we love but with a running gear that can take you anywhere – off-road included. Check out this Charger running dirt-roads like a champion.
A few weeks ago, Chevrolet gave us a sneak peek at the new Z06, which allowed us to hear the V8 roar. Unfortunately, the teaser video didn’t show any of the exterior, but we’ve seen videos and photos of the camouflaged prototypes. One Corvette fan needed an up close look so bad, that he tracked down where the prototypes were parked overnight, and even snuck underneath a car to avoid security who was patrolling the area.
So, thanks to Brandon, we get a detailed look at the Z06. Noteworthy discoveries include a transmission with a magnesium case and a unique exhaust layout than that of the Stingray. Check out the video, right here. Oh, and needless to say, shout out to Brandon. We’re thankful for car lovers like him and the risks they take in the name of vehicle knowledge. It’s honest work.
