Pikes Peak: Racing with NO RULES


2,1M visualizzazioni419

    What happens when you let engineers have completely free reign? No regulations, no power limits and whatever mad aero design they can come up with.
    Well, you get crazy-powerful, high-downforce - monsters.
    This is exactly what they do in the Unlimited Division at Pikes Peak, where we get to see how they stack up against each other, as well as how it can go wrong.
    Home-designed and made machines can compete against big-money international car companies to race to the top of the 14,000 foot mountain. A course with no run-off, no barriers, standard road-tarmac and 2000 foot drops.

    The Unlimited Division is like nothing else in motorsport. Taking a look at the regulations, they say as long as you conform to the regular safety rules - you can do anything you like.
    As much power as you want, any design and as much downforce as you can create. As long as you have a roll-cage, harnesses, helmets and other standard safety features - you’re good to go.
    This leads to some extremely fast cars, and yet all of them are very different.
    So what does it take to take the record at Pikes Peak? How quick is it possible to go with no rules?

      do you ever shutup?

    6. Freerider

      It's just sad to see some stating to be a racing driver, compare a vehicle with a combustion engine to a vehicle with batteries only. Even the vehicle itself is completely different.

    7. Jonas Lippert

      This is how f1 should be after 2021. With Budget cap we have a More or less leveled playingfield so why not allow active aero? Or fan cars etc.

      I feel like If they put roll cages in consumer cars it would save alot more people

      its like the group B of hill climb

    11. Justin Dougherty

      What's the record for a consumer level unmodified car aside from super cars.? There should be a record for that. I would race it and sign a waver saying I understand the risks. I would run it in a lincoln Ls V8.

    12. zircon

      How fast can these cars climb Mt Everest if road is available.

      Slamming into the trees at such speed and getting away with just bruises - now that sounds like an engineering miracle on the side of the safety engineers.

      Can I take my 50 hp subaru? I'll adjust the carb halfway thru.

    24. Nick H

      Nice video but I'd like to hear more numbers. Instead of "faster from 0-60 than an F1 car...", just tell me how quickly it does 0-60 in seconds! What are the top speeds reached? What are the average speeds?

    37. chromefinch

      you didn't mention the Suzuki monster?

    38. Shellshock Gaming and toys

      Pikes peak isn't so much a race as it is a pusher of limits on both man and machine.

    40. Aesma

      You must admit the home made cars look a bit ridiculous compared to the Peugeot and the VW. The Peugeot was much faster than them already, with much less power !


      that's how all racing should be few drops of safety and no limits on cars abilities.

    42. Frigorific

      Thanks for making a video about the Pike's Peak Hill Climb! Sending my gratitude from Colorado ^^

    43. gio s

      Oh god you do what Minecraft IThomesrs do The ratio of viewers to subscribers 😂

    44. Connor Daniels

      The other tule is no other cars on tract at a time... it’s a time trial and a boon to watch. I live in Colorado and have witnessed the event first hand!

    45. Appaple

      gone to the top several times and rode a bike down, sketchy

    46. Fred Flügge

      are drivers and road contact a requirement???

    47. Jersey Mike's Rail Videos

      Pikes Peak is for tourists. Mt Washington is where it's at. Practically the same delta Y, but a higher average grade of 11% and a much narrower road with some dirt sections.

    48. ChrisGR93 _TxS

      devil's playground

    49. Jules

      i think you could just buy a toro rosso or a sauber for cheaper than some of these builds. no way an f1 car isnt faster

    50. Flowmasta Flam

      how come none of these pikes peak cars are doing 600 mph wheelies tho

    51. Kenneth Deloria

      good info brother good vid

    52. Ivan Pozdeev

      A non-annoying way to encourage liking and subscribing that I saw elsewhere is a short reminder at the end of a video along the lines of: "if you enjoyed the video, don't forget to push the like button, and subscribe if you want to see more". IIRC Aarava does this, but in latest videos, he did add visual nags and thus didn't receive a single like from me since then.

    53. Ivan Pozdeev

      6:22 I'm capable of deciding for myself whether I wish to subscribe or not without you nagging me about this 3 times in every video, thank you very much. And the nagging is doing the exact opposite of what you want since you're basically taking me for a fool.

    54. Blind Freddy

      Sorry...like no other motorsport? Isle of Man TT.

    55. Isan 2ra

      they even make anime for this, lol

    56. Fatir Gazali

      Almost all cars in this video is look like my custom tamiya

    57. Bay BossMAN

      thumbs down how dare you not Mention Monster Tajima The Champ!!!

    58. Haaako

    59. Krystal Myth

      He's going off of that cliff...! .... Auuuughhh!

    60. Guido Occhiuzzi

      Great vids, good work! Thanks for all the data

    61. Gramursow An Faborden

      youtubers make algorithm-centric, eye-catching non-serialised content and then complain most of the people who watch them aren't subscribed...

    62. Chris H

      At one time Pikes Peak was on the USAC schedule and paid points towards the championship, so for many years many of the same drivers who raced in the Indy 500 would be at pike peak trying to set the fastest time in sprint roadsters.

    63. Chris H

      Pikes Peak makes the Nordschleife look like childs play.

    64. Tarek Ben

      Why you didn't mention Suzuki?

    65. MadCarTK

      I want an unlimited class in the WRC, that'd be amazing!

    66. Ofentse Mwase Films

      I want to see Ken Blocks Hoonicorn here!

      1. Howard Man

        @Ofentse Mwase Films I'm not sure the Hoonicorn will really do a whole lot. It's nowhere near made for that

      2. Ofentse Mwase Films

        @Carter Maziarz Yeah a Speed run, not a Drift run.

      3. Carter Maziarz

        Already has a few years ago, go check toyo tires IThomes channel or search KenBlock pikes peak, first one that comes up

    67. Jer Watson

    68. Bon Vi

    69. Ian Leavitt

    70. Brandon Harrington

      Pikes peak lost its glory when the tarmac was paved

    71. Dg 27

    77. Richard Elvy

      Thank you for showing the unsubscribed stats. I'd never thought about how I enjoy your videos but hadn't taken the 2 seconds to subscribe. Kinda ungrateful on my part. Needless to say have done so now. @Driver65 thank you for the entertaining and educational videos

    81. Oblio1942

      I drove pikes in a my06 manual forester both up and down. It was amazing.

    82. Gilbatrar

      I've never seen a video more straight to the point as this one and I loved it! Excellent video sir!

    83. pacific 200

      So your telling me i could race a block off wood and make q new coass and set a reccord?


      So PPIHC Unlimited Class is the right place if you want to see all out race cars or time attack cars without any strict rules. No limit in aero No limit in engine power No limit in weight No limit in drivetrain No limit in budget Just follow the safety rules, & there you go. Correct interpretation of the class name : UnLimited.

    85. LolPlayer XD

      Why do you need maximum down force when you can have up force? He just said there are only safety rules right?

    86. The Colorado Car Nerd

      So cool to be able to look out my window at pikes peak every day 👍

    87. cheifwhat

      No conclusion? The video feels like it just stops rather than ends

    88. sacke110

    94. Daniel Arias

      Why didn’t you show one run? Just a bunch of clips 👎🏽

    95. Sean Reilly

      Why mention Adrian Newey's concept fan car and not Gordon Murray's race proven production car?

    96. TIR0

      It's really hard not to binge watch your channel

    97. Sy Hungry

      The tasteful titanium electrophoretically delay because quarter unfortunately rule minus a incredible ornament. willing, nippy taste

    98. calska140

      I like pikes peaks rules: you want to fly off the side of this mountain? Go right ahead. See if I care. Someone clipped a deer on turn 4. It's corpse is splayed across both lanes. Good luck with that corner.

    99. B 1RD

      Imagine using 100% of our brain now

    100. Eli Watson

      God that’s terrifying. One bit of understeer on one of those hairpins and boom, you’re going to the shadow realm jimbo. No time to react, just game over, thanks for playing
