Throttle Stuck Wide Open + 900HP = Airborne Hill Climber!

When it comes to climbing hills, these guys use beastly turbo powered motors with upwards of 900HP in low AWD trucks! Now what happens when all that power is pointed up a hill and the throttle is held wide open? Well you’ll find out! At the Iceland Formula Off-road NEZ 2014 event this hill climber went for one wild ride.


Those giant paddle tires hooked right into the dirt and shot him up the hill a little faster than he was expecting. Then physics took over and slammed the truck down upside down. You can hear the motor bouncing off the rev limiter as the truck and driver try to figure out what in the heck is going on!

Luckily it looks like the truck wasn’t damaged too much and the driver was just fine!
