Raminator Breaks Guinness Record for Fastest Monster Truck

_MG_1736 II

Ever wonder who has the fastest monster truck in recorded history, at least according to the Guinness Book of World Records?

The previous record was an impressive 96.8 mph, but that has been smashed by Mark Hall's 2014 Raminator. He now officially has the "Fastest Speed for a Monster Truck" record, set at 99.10 mph at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

"Taking on the challenge of breaking a world record has been an experience we will never forget," said Tim Hall, Hall Brothers Racing president and crew chief, in a statement. "With the support of Ram and Mopar, we continue to add to our achievements and are honored to now be a Guinness World Records holder."

Ram chose Circuit of The Americas, a multipurpose facility with a 3.4-mile track situated on 1,000 acres in southeast Austin, as the site for this attempt at the record. For more information about Raminator or Hall Brothers Racing, click here.

Those tires can spin 100 MPH?

I wonder how many parts on that truck are "actually" RAM.....

I wonder the same thing. You call it a ram then it needs to be more than a name.

What kind of engine does it use? Transmission? Rear end? What is the tire size?

Anyone other than me wondering what the changes for the 2016 ram 1500 in 2015 are? 65rfe finally dead? 870re replacing 8hp70? Locking differential finally available? Direct injection for the pentastar? Twin turbos? Upgraded hemi? Lighter truck? 6.4 hemi?

Since when did this matter? I have a question to post for GM guys. On the inside, is your GMC a Chevy or GMC? The answer is neither. It's a "GM" on the inside.

Getting back to the topic at hand, anyone with half a brain knows that race cars, monster trucks, etc do not even remotely resemble a stock vehicle. I'm not sure why those where would have difficulty understanding this.

Branding on these types of vehicles serves one purpose and one purpose only, marketing. I do feel like I am teaching kindergarten here.

@ hemi monster. no you are not teaching anything. Seems like you got just the other half of the brain so just crawl back under that rock you came from.


Just saw a Toyota funny car at the auto show. Trust me, it doesn't have a Toyota engine.

If my calculations are correct, those tires are only spinning 508 rpm at that speed.

Diddo on the "I can't believe the tires didn't fly apart turning the truck into a rolling crumpled ball of steel tubing..."

Powered by a 565 CID Hemi, and fredtheman is right, those Ford, Toyota, Chevy as well as Dodge funny cars and top fielders, as well as many pro mods run a 426 Hemi based engine.

There it nothing in this truck that is Ram it is a full blowin race truck. Yes the engine is a 565 Hemi but it is a"BAE hemi" Brad Anderson Enterprises so it is all after market. http://www.bradanderson.com/

FUELERS! Not fielders! Dad gum auto correct!

That's Hemi power kids. Git R done!

dumb, Dumb, DUMB.

Who cares?

I guess I have grown up even dare I say gotten old.

For those that really do "care" about this level of mindless bubble gum trivia... Professional Wrestling is scripted.

If you don't know what that means look it up.

Thanks PTUC follow this useless tidbit up with a 10,000th article about the new F150 being aluminum, the Titan getting a diesel, a recall notice, or SEMA.
