Have a ZIL-49061 pic

Photos taken from this article and courtesy of NASA. There are more pictures to be had in the article, but I do need to include this one of the Soyuz capsule on the ground. Just in case you were wondering just how violent and hot a reentry is, here is what a space capsule looks like after landing. I wonder how long… » 3/26/15 11:01am 3/26/15 11:01am

Zil 4904

EDIT: ADDED VIDEO!!!!! So I've posted this in a couple replies today but I think it deserves a spot on the front page. The Zil 4904 is one awesome looking Cold War era Soviet machine. Just look at it, it's beautiful. Besides being beautiful it is damn near unstoppable. This was designed to deal with the vast… » 1/22/15 2:42pm 1/22/15 2:42pm

Russian dudes blow up car, eardrums 

According to the video description, this is what a home-made gas-powered (I assume they mean some sort of compressed gas, as opposed to gasoline) car looks like when it blows the fuck up and deafens its occupants. Well done, Russian home-made carmakers. Red Green salutes you. » 1/19/15 2:59pm 1/19/15 2:59pm

Russian dashcams will never feature drag queens attacking people

New Russian road safety regulations now list transgender people and others with "sexual disorders" as having a medical condition that leaves them unfit to drive, barring the world from ever getting the chance to watch a transvestite exit a car and pummel another driver on dashcam.… » 1/09/15 9:53am 1/09/15 9:53am

Even the Roads are Drunk in Russia

While Russia has the drinking stigma tied to them, what can be said about their roads? If I saw the road lines start to zig zag across the road and even onto the grass at one point, I would pull over thinking I definitely had way too much to drink. » 1/08/15 3:53pm 1/08/15 3:53pm

Spotted: Antonov in Kansas City

Through the snow, my friend drove me to Kansas City for my flight home to Massachusetts. Holy shit, no one knew how to drive in the snow. Cars and trucks off on I70 everywhere. By the way he was driving a Cobalt SS, the supercharged one, with no issues, through this weather. » 12/19/14 2:08pm 12/19/14 2:08pm

Auto Detailers, How Would You Clean a Car Filled with Cement?

Came across this old video of a [Russian] angry guy taking revenge on someone blocking him in. From the looks of it, it seemed like he was just going to smash his windows and headlights and be done. Then, he reached into the car and put the car into neutral. I assumed at this point he was just going to roll it down a… » 12/01/14 12:01pm 12/01/14 12:01pm

This 68 year old taxi driver could not be more online or Russian

The Twitter OP claims this Muscovite taxi driver has viber, watsup, and instagram in the mix, and I think I can see at least two dashcams with screens. » 11/16/14 10:07am 11/16/14 10:07am

Russian Airplane Cockpit Cam Catches Deadly Crash

This Russian training flight goes horribly wrong after a botched landing results in a poorly executed go-around. The graphic ending is a sober reminder that even with an experienced flight instructor on board, that primary training cannot be taken lightly. » 11/05/14 11:08am 11/05/14 11:08am

Bianchi's crash really affects the whole F1 field emotionally.

The body language and generally depressing atmosphere at the press conference 4 days after the accident gives us an insight how much a heavy crash of a colleague really impacts the mood of modern F1 drivers. Also, while I understand having Seb, Nando, Kvjat, Button and Masse at the conference - who on earth made Sutil… » 10/09/14 12:52pm 10/09/14 12:52pm
