Ripsaw MS1 Homemade Tank

Two things are fantastic when made at home: lemonade and tanks.

Two brothers from Maine built this tank they call the Ripsaw MS1. It’s controlled by two people, a driver and a gunner. The most impressive feature is that it can hit 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 80 MPH. Not too shabby.
