Video: Bad Habit monster truck sets new world record with 208 ft. jump |

Monster trucks are born from competition, and when Joey Sylvester, driver of the Bad Habit truck saw that Big Foot set a new world record for the longest jump, with 202 feet traveled in the air, he set forth to break that achievement.

Sadly, things didn’t go so well in the first test run, with Sylverster crashing the truck into the dirt landing ramp. With a lot of work and dedication, the Bad Habit monster was back on its huge wheels and, on September 5, tried to officially beat Big Foot.

The first run was short, as the truck did 75 mph and jumped ‘only’ 198 feet, but on the second run, Sylvester pushed it to 79 mph, and achieved a 208 foot jump.

Hit the jump to see video with the first crash, and a teaser of the record breaking jump. Sadly, the rest of the footage is only available as a DVD.
