Bryce Menzies, a professional stunt driver, broke the world record for the longest jump made by a four-wheeled vehicle.
Previously, Tanner Foust jumped 332feet at the Indianapolis 500 in May 2011 and made the world record for longest jump in a four-wheeled drive. To gain enough momentum to clear the massive 100-meter jump, Froust dropped over 90 feet.
Recently, Redbull challenged Hot Wheels to a new world record. On August 27, watched carefully by the Guinness World Records officials, Menzies got into his Pro 2 900 HP truck and went full steam before hitting the jump.
The Pro 2 900 HP jumped over a huge gap of 379 feet, breaking the previous official record by a significant 78 feet. Menzies’ Pro 2 went under massive remodelling to land the distance safely. A direct fuel injecting system replaced the original carburettor while additional weight was added to ensure an even weight distribution, which is critical for a safe landing. To make sure that the excessive rebound energy did not toss the Pro 2 from the rear shocks, the shock absorbers were swapped.
After the substantial modifications, Menzies got behind the wheels of his Pro 2 and broke the world record for the highest four-wheel drive jump. See the full action in this video:
Menzies hope that this accomplishment will kickstart his career as an international racer.
