    Y'all are making it look like they're being scammed. If they're not happy with their pay, they can just hop off onto another channel of their own. But CT's faces are these guys', so they surely are happy with their pay for now. I hope that they get a raise for doing a podcast.

    As someone who grew up on the German Autobahn (and had his 2nd Autobahn lesson ticking in at over 130mph/200kph because my driving teacher wanted to show me it's not relaxing to do that, I know, weird teaching style) I am a bit amused about people shitting themselves at speeds over 130mph. Not that I think it's wise to go that fast on an even slightly busy road (had too many near crash experiences for my taste) or that it makes sense to do so but it's not that kind of a daredevil thing. I once hit a bad bump on the Autobahn at ~140-150mph in a slight corner though - car jumped half a lane. THAT was scary. Going in a straight line on an empty Autobahn? Not so much. And I did go 120-ish mph/ 190kph ina 60s Alfa.

    I actually know what stretch of road they 135mph at, I can tell by that tiny bit of description, it's a part of a dual carraigway, there's no offramps or anything to this day and you can see the entire road so no surprise police, the stretch comes off an uphill long sweeping corner and then it's a very long downhill, and then back uphill into another right hander, I did 140 on it one time in my Impreza GC8 and omg, if I had've crashed, no one would've found me for so long, if you go through that guardrail, it's just forest

    The guy messaging in saying he wants to buy his "first supercar" with that budget is day dreaming and most likely an instagram flexer. R8 V8 isn't a supercar, they are slow and heavy and boring as hell to drive. I have owned a 2009 Nissan GTR, tuned to 650hp and it was a monster BUT... any GTR for £30k - £35k will be a high mileage bag of rubbish. You will soon find yourself spending the same as the value in repairs.

    Best "race" I ever had was against someone in a 4 series on the m20 heading back to London from Dover and I'm in my RS7. Was about 6AM on a Sunday so the roads were completely dead, but I was poodling along at 70, being a good boy. He comes steaming up the road and gets right up behind me stays there for about 10 seconds, flashes once and then hoons past me. I wasn't having that so I made chase. We reached speeds of at least 140MPH until I eventually overtook him about 15 seconds later. As I overtook I looked over and gave him a cheeky wave and a smiled.

    Can’t believe the best advice you could come up with for someone considering a lotus evora with a budget of £35k was a fucking GTR or RS6!? What about an actual Lotus evora competitor, you know, like an actual sports car???

    22:29 - I actually don't think it is true. Taxi driver effectively crashed into them and as far as police report goes it does not matter what speed they were doing. I mean sure if you report you were doing 130Mph police will not be overly happy, but I am not even sure if it could be legally enforced even if you say so. What is classed as speeding has very strict requirements of how the speed is measured etc. (+ we know speeds shows higher speed than it is). That said if there was any damage on his bumper and he had reported to police simply "that taxi had rear-ended his car in whilst he was overtaking in outside lane", this still would be valid claim + he had a witness. Likewise it is not like taxi driver could defend that by saying "we both were doing 130Mph", that is neither valid defence nor he has any valid proof... in fact it just makes his actions worse - not only he would admit to criminal act (ramming other car deliberately is criminal damage), but doing so at high speed. Obviously, alternatively we speculate that situation was not exactly as described... maybe taxi was tailgating them and his friend "brake-checked" the taxi? Obviously, taxi should not have been tailgating them so close that it could not react to "brake-check", but neither they should have done it. In such case I would agree - both were equally at fault and reporting to police would have rendered little results. Still in the times of no dash-cams they could have claimed no such thing as "brake-check" happened and taxi just rammed them, but perhaps they didn't feel this was fair. 31:05 - as for the officers... that was NOT fair play and nothing about it was funny. It could have ruined their relationship for nothing really and it is almost impossible to prove yourself honest in such situation. Perhaps if that was some one night stand with random girl it is not so much of an issue, but if that would have happened to me and after that I would have separated with girlfriend I am seriously in love with... I would have found that officer and literally killed him, likely stabbed him dead or shot him. Not joking or exaggerating even the slightest here. They are professionals doing their job... and if they feel it was that serious to issue a warning or a fine, that is their duty, but making such inappropriate jokes is extremely unprofessional and could have resulted in irreparable damage to their relationship. Even in case where that is true and he was cheating it was inappropriate for officer to raise this.

    This is really a nice question - what do you consider a supercar. For me to qualify a car as a supercar it must have a mid-engine, RWD or AWD, 2 doors, cool shape, at least a V8, a minimum top speed of 300kph and base model price starts with 6 figures. Everything with less cylinders or with more doors or lower top speed is just a fast sports car. Audi TTRS - sports car; Audi R8 - supercar; Ferrari 458 - supercar; Lotus Evora - sports car and so on you get the idea. Basically sports cars are when you kinda wanna drive fast, but you still can't afford the real deal - the supercar. The only weird exception is the 911 Turbo S - it's supercar fast, costs as a supercar should, has the top speed, but still somehow lacks the feel of a proper supercar. It just can't fit the proper image of a supercar with this 6-cylinder engine and that VW beetle shape.

    First time Northern Ireland gets a mention and it's the most mental taxi driver in the world (by the sound of it), and what might be a bit more worrying, it didn't really surprise me that the story introduced in the title and thumbnail was from here, either here or Germany, with the autobahns where 135mph is holding someone up. Our drivers are interesting to share a road with now thinking about it. I've steered a Zafira B from the passenger's seat at 100 mph on a single carriageway with a single lane each way, typical country A road, because my granddad, driving, wanted to eat an icecream and it was a warm day meaning it was melting and would have made the steering wheel sticky. I'm pretty sure I was out of primary school by then. Something was knackered with that car, the steering shook really bad above 90 mph. Weird to think that other people were on the road when I was doing that, but I guess it's your standard stuff, parents/grandparents letting children steer for a while while they cruise along a clear road, and everyone when they hop in a car has a go at getting 100 mph out of it at some point. They selected a good piece of road for it, the top speed run I mean, and they waited until they had a clear road so there's nothing wrong with the speed in my opinion. Edit; removed stuff
