Bucko starts the adventure by traveling to Maine to speak with the owners of Howe and Howe Technologies, the company that builds the Ripsaw EV2. "Way back in 2001, we said, 'Let's build the world's fastest tracked vehicle,' and 16 years later we finally put something down that performs," said Mike Howe, president and co-owner of the company.
After learning about the conception and construction of the unique vehicle, of course Bucko needed to get behind the wheel. As always, our daredevil host did better than most on his first run in a supertank, but the real fun starts when Mike Howe asks if he wants to know "what it really feels like." Once Mike is behind the controls and Bucko is in the passenger seat, things get turned up to 11.
