Top Video Wednesday

This week, we’re taking a look at one of the most insane vehicles known to mankind.  It’s called Ripsaw, and it’s probably the most awesome thing you have ever seen.

Ripsaw originally started out as a monster truck attraction, but has since evolved into a military concept vehicle.  The ability to drive on tracks at ridiculous speeds, and go through anything-literally-would make Ripsaw the most bad-ass thing on the battlefield.

The whole thing is the brainchild of two twins, Geoff and Mike Howe.  Somehow, they found inspiration for their creation in the rural areas of Maine, which also provided the amount of space you’d need to build and test this kind of machine.

As you can see, there’s lots of interest from the military to get this machine into production.  The real question is, when will the civilian version hit dealer lots?

    Awesome Vid! That thing Rocks! Did you notice that one of the 4x4s had a busted body mount. Notice the bumper gap when it hits the jumps.

    Yeah, i noticed that too. Maybe they wanted to put it up against some soft competition for its video debut?

    I saw this at World Of Wheels and they had replaced the 454 with a 572! I will be posting the pics soon.

    Seriously? I thought they had armored them and sold’em all to the military… Maybe there’s hope for a civilian version yet!!!
