Raminator Monster Truck Guinness World Record (1)

Όλοι γνωρίζουμε για τι είναι ικανό ένα monster truck. Συνήθως όμως, οι ικανότητες του, περιορίζονται στην καταστροφή και τα άλματα, όχι στην ταχύτητα. Δεν είναι θέμα ιπποδύναμης… Είναι θέμα βάρους, αεροδυναμικής, ύψους και πάρα πολλών άλλων αλλά όλα αυτά δεν σταμάτησαν το Raminator, που έθεσε νέο ρεκόρ και έγινε το ταχύτερο monster truck του κόσμου.
