      Only in Russia, where you would get stopped by the cops, and a few minutes later, they will become the 'friendly' policemen.

      Not only in Russia - it's everywhere else when you are part of the clans (the ruling party) and you have more dollars than you can spend. They are the red capitalists.

      I felt like that Lambo had another 3,000+ RPM to go on every shift. He should've wound it out a bit more - I thought those UGR Lambos were king here.

      I like how they get nabbed and then go right back to it after. When I get pulled over for going 75 in a 65 I say to myself, "crap, I don't want to drive anymore right now." I can't imagine going 150 mph over the speed limit.

      any idea what these guys do for a living ???
      On a given day, a given circumstance, you think you have a limit. And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit, and you think, 'Okay, this is the limit.' As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high - Ayton Senna

      thats pretty insane.

      most of the car videos i see from russia are little econoboxes getting mowed down by 18 wheelers or sliding around on ice.

      It looked safe to me, it didn't look like either drivers were drinking while they were racing.
