Top Gear drives Grave Digger
What exactly is it like driving a five-tonne 1,500bhp monster truck worth $300,000?

After another 10 minutes, I'm starting to get cocky. Grave Digger is re-chipped to give me more power and I'm actually encouraged to floor it. For a brief, beautiful moment, I do just that, foot to the floor as I head up to the ramp, the engine roaring its approval at this righteous behaviour. And do you know what? As I breach the ramp, I can feel the shocks loosen up. There's a moment, mere milliseconds, and then a subtle bump. I can see the smiles on people's faces. Henry gives me a thumbs-up. I actually get air. It's little more than a few inches, but all the same... air.
