Eh. This guy put on a better show.



Seriously that monster truck was amazing. Remember when Bigfoot first showed up? They basically crawled over some junk cars, and not much else. Thanks for posting that.

I believe in the old days of monster trucks they just made them big without much thought. The truck in the video shows good balance so they put a lot of thought in weight distribution. The ramps have to be at the proper angle too. After all the engineering is done someone has to execute the driving flawlesly. How do you prepare for it? Trial and error? I wonder how it is sensing the balance of such a vehicle sitting in the driver's seat. I guess that's why folks pay to see it. :)

Was just to one of those shows with my cousin and his kids. Unfortunately the arena here is so small they really couldn't do anything like that. I'm actually surprised they have it there at all, I did see some dirt going into the audience. I know they have some guy on remote kill switch but I'd imagine it wouldn't take much to get it into the stands even with the guy on the kill switch. For this show it was more like hit the gas and slam on the brakes. They were catching some air but that was about it. He did do the balancing thing...

Same show here.... you can see how small the place is. You can hear him just feathering the gas.
