    Re: Killer Video: Russian Truck Racing

    Looks like a low budget version of a monster truck rally - and probably a bit more fun.

    Kind of surprised they don't require hood pins... or maybe those ruin some of the entertainment value?

        I had been putting off watching this, but this comment moved it to the "Watch Now!" priority :D That is great. I wonder how one of these would be in the Baja 500?? Hilarious none the less, haha.

            I saw a bunch of these trucks a few years ago in Iraq. They were a Soviet state run company and made a ton of different vehicles from limos for the political classes all the way up to ICBM carriers, which of the two SCUD carriers I saw had two big V8's and a transmission for each side of the truck. Most of the cabs are some cheep looking fiberglass and most of the axles were pretty old school Timkin type. The new 4X4's I saw were cool with huge bias-ply mud tires.

                  I don't think we were ever that desperate. Apparently this was born because racing cars was banned by the Commies who were running the show back when in the USSR.

                    True, but there must've been some rednecks somewhere who all drive around in those things that would've thought to do it. Im thinking of those canadian hillbillies on dave's farm ya know? haha. all i could find on youtube was low quality vid of a lame drag race on a dirt track. The trucks did get hustlin' faster than i thought tho.

                      More proof of the adage is universal. Alcohol, boredom, and a couple vehicles lying around lead to racing.
