File this under are you f’ing nuts? Apparently setting speed records on a densely packed salt bed is just too boring. So much that in Russia, there are ice speed records. Seriously? Who came up with the idea that while driving on ice, we should go as fast as possible? We can’t be sure but we suspect considerable quantities of vodka were involved. Through a joint project of Nissan Russia and LAV Productions, Andrey Leontjev and Roman Rusinov attempt to break the Russian Ice Speed Record with a production Nissan GT-R. The place? Baikal Lake, Russia. Temperature? -22 degrees Celsius. Ice? 1.4 meters thick.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
