Editor’s Note: Two semesters of Russian in college, twenty years or so ago, have left me ill prepared to sort out what is going on in this video. To help get some insight, I’ve enlisted the help of my Russian cousin, Pavel Yakovich, to explain. – Paul Huizenga
In Russia today, since collapse of former Soviet Union, two types of driving environment available: Gotham-style urban dystopia and frozen empty wilderness. Video shown demonstrates proper method of transport for each variation. Is typical Russian day – drive Corvette of Batman type, get run over by truck. Easier to show than tell in text, so observe the following.
Thanks again to Pavel for his insight. He also informs us that the truck in the second half of the video is a TRECOL 39294, a 2500kg specialty transport that can carry up to 8 people across practically any terrain, albeit slowly – the base engine is a 2.4L gas powerplant churning out a whopping 90 horsepower and 128 pound feet of torque.
