Brake checking is never a good idea and doing its with performance machines doesn’t change too much. This is what a pair of drivers from Hong Kong recently find out, when a road rage incident involving a Mercedes-AMG C63 and a Nissan GT-R ended up in a crash.
As you’ll be able to see in the footage below, which comes from a dash cam, we are dealing with an R35 GT-R and a Mercedes C-Class that appears to the Affalterbach-massaged version.
We don’t know how the pair “met”, but we can see the Mercedes driver pulling a massive brake check move on the guy in the Godzilla. As if doing this once wasn’t enough, the man decided to repeat the move, which leads to the GT-R rear-ending his car.
So, what have we learned from this?

Well, you don’t need to be a driver to figure out what happens when rage strikes when you’re behind the wheel. Nevertheless, there are more lessons to be learned here.
For one thing, you shouldn’t mess with AMG brakes. It's not like the stoppers on the GT-R are weak, but Mercedes-Benz’s go-fast arm had a few rules it never fails to follow and building cars that can stop on a dime is one of them.
Oh well, at least we don’t get to see the two drivers continuing the fight outside of their cars. The infinite universe of Russian dash cam videos has determined us to treasure such an apparently peaceful ending.
