    Truck Related The MTRA and leaf springs

    Are elliptical leaf springs still an allowable suspension type for a truck to be MTRA race certified? I know it may sound like a dumb question to some, but in light of recent events a ban on their usage for race vehicles is a step that needs to be taken, if it hasn't been taken already. I would...

    Truck Related The (short-term) future of weight and weight limits

    As it currently stands, the MTRA weight limit for a monster truck is 9,000 lbs. Monster Jam's weight limit, at least according to the Feld Motorsports website, appears to be the same. It seems as if major truck developments came to a screeching halt in the mid-to-late-90s and hasn't budged...

    Truck Related Bigfoot 5 tire brand?

    If this has been asked before, I apologize in advance, as I didn't really see anything come up in the search. I was just looking at the framed Bigfoot 5 picture and realized I've never asked anyone if the tundra tires on the truck were actually made by Firestone. Is this the case? Or did...

    The infamous Bearfoot Volvo commercial

    Does anyone have this commercial ANYWHERE on the web? I can't find it. For those that don't know the background, this was an ad that premiered in 1990 in which Bearfoot rolled over a line of cars, including a Volvo. The Volvo survived the crush without any damage. It was later revealed...

    Best looking truck of all time?

    I figured I'd ask this question in this forum since modern-day trucks that are truly a work of art are the exception rather than the rule. What do you think the best looking monster of all time has ever been? Perhaps as a California native and a Chevy fan I am a little biased, but I personally...
