    at rattling rate

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    They traveled the new route to the top of the mountain at a rattling rate.

    rattling rate = huge speed

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Hope it would be of some help to you...
