Hoonigan’s 1060hp Warthog. (Gaming)

This is old news, I guess. They’ve been talking about it for months and did a ten part build series on YouTube, but it’s worth showing off.

Hoonigan partnered with MS to build a Warthog. It’s not game accurate, but it still looks fucking cool, and, unlike every other “real” Warthog I’ve seen, this thing is the real deal in that it’s actually a functioning vehicle with real off-road capability.

I started that, saw that it was 17 minutes, and said "there's no way I'm watching this whole thing."

I watched the whole thing.

That was really really good.

It's pretty darn rad but it's missing that one thing that makes a Warthog unique, that (as far as I know) has never been developed IRL. Each wheels independent drive train/suspension system. Even the Forza Horizon Warthog doesn't have it. Apparently, 343 killed this system?

Yeah, since 343i took over in Halo 4, the Warthog just uses a traditional, modern day drivetrain.

Me too. I’m very pro-343i and them doing whatever they want with the art and style of Halo. I explicitly think that the ass end of Forward Unto Dawn being different in Halo 4 than it was in Halo 3 is a fantastically stupid thing to care even a little bit about.

I don’t even care that they redesigned the Warthog to have a real drivetrain and suspension, but I’m extremely fascinated by the reasoning, and I wish I knew why they did it. I honestly wonder if it’s because they had grander plans for Halo branching out into TV or movies, and making a Warthog that way is basically the only way to do it in real life, which means making game accurate props is much easier.

I'll bet Ten Quadrillion Euros it's that. A little tear comes to my eye every time I see Halo whored out for something. Like this morning in the check out line seeing Master Chief on a package of Trolli gummy worms.

But I've digressed this tread topic. That Warthog is still pretty sweet.
