    Show Related Saskatoon Show 2013

    It's time once again for the Saskatoon Motorsports Spectacular. Has anyone heard what trucks will be there this year? I haven't watched enough tv to catch the commercials yet. I'm pretty psyched to be checking out the show again after being out-of-province for quite a while.

    Carbon Fibre Driveline Brakes?

    Just a random question: Is it possible to equip a monster truck with carbon fiber driveline brakes? Or are there problems in terms of price, weight, installation or tolerance? I'm asking since CF brakes are supposed to alleviate some of the problems associated with brake fade, and I was...

    Truck Related Turbos with WRC Bang-bang system?

    So I was wondering if you could hypothetically use a WRC style bang-bang (or misfiring system for the Initial D fans) in either a diesel powered MT or a Twin-Turbo powered one? Or would not really work for the larger-displacement engines that MTs normally run?

    Alright, here's the premise, Which venues did you see the best old-school shows in? Or if you didn't have access to some of those events where would have most liked to have seen the old-school events. For me, I would have loved to have seen some of the races at the Pontiac Silverdome...

    Truck Related Technology or Technique?

    In your opinion which is more important in the current monster truck generation technology in the truck or the technique of the driver? Do you think this has varied between generations of trucks? To me it seems sometimes that technology is more important, but in a more or less even field it...

    Mega Truck roll-cages

    Alright, so I got some Trucks Gone Wild DVDs from my wife for my birthday, but something I find odd is this: It seems like the majority of the trucks have no roll cage to speak of. To me this seems strange especially since some of them range in the tall and skinny realm of things. It would...

I've gotta say I like the the 87 Houston USHRA show with the pyramid of cars (kinds of wish they would do that for racing in the World Finals, or buses) and the 87 TNT also in Houston when they started up on the hills before turning out to the...

    Here's a cool article I found from my home province. Apparently the guy loves tractor pulling so much he's decided to invest in and make his own sled. I hope it works out for him, and I'm stoked to hear the Boss Blue pulling team may come back too...

    Show Related Monster Jam: Calgary, Alberta

    So anyone else heading to the show this weekend? I know there's not a ton of us from Alberta on here but I was wondering if anybody else was coming in. Really solid line-up this year too, should be a lot of fun, but I don't know what they're doing for side acts this year. Grave Digger...

    Your Monster Truck

    Well just as a "for fun thread" let's say you're approached my a large corporation who wants to sponsor you as a Monster Truck and are willing to give you the money to build and race your own truck. What chassis do you use? What body type? What name do you give your truck? I think I...
