    MTRA Fuel Testing

    This came up in discussion on one of the facebook groups - did anything ever come of this? Maybe one of the MTRA Guys (Marty and others) can comment on what the results were once everything was tested?

    Off-Topic Greatest/Favorite Stunts and Thrill Acts

    With the new History Channel show "American Daredevils," I have been watching videos of stunts for about 2 hours now on Youtube. Monster truck events frequently (less frequently nowadays) feature stunts and thrill acts, and it prompts the question: What is your favorite stunt? In my opinion...

    As far as I know, these are the first posters I've seen go on sale from the first two years of the International Monster Truck Museum and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Both posters are mint with no rips, tears or folds. These posters were available only to the attendees of the ceremony and...

    Dennis Anderson's Camel Camel Caravan Just stumbled upon this while doing other research, as many of you know there are a ton of Camel-era-related documents out there as a result from legal proceedings in the tobacco industry throughout the years, but this is a new one that I found...

    Toughest Monster Truck Tour Discussion

    Just got home from the Indiana, PA show, part of the Toughest Monster Truck Tour. This was the 3rd of 3 shows and to be honest I didn't know what to expect going in since it was a promoter I haven't seen yet as far as in person. Let me say that I was very, very impressed with the show. Here are...

    Slipper Clutch Use in Monster Trucks

    Here's a question for the industry professionals out there - how common (if at all) is it to run a slipper clutch nowadays? I know that Fred Shafer used a slipper clutch on Bear Foot 9 and it seems like he had decent success with it - I think he had one failure in Albany and that was the only...

    "Official" Grave Digger 30 Year Timeline

    Does it grind anyone else's gears when FELD produces something that is blatantly incorrect in pretty much every historical aspect? Take a look at this: I'll go ahead and list the things that I can see that are factually/chronologically...

    Grave Digger 30th Anniversary DVD Discussion

    Monster Truck Radio - Bob Chandler

    Is there anywhere that I can get this week's Monster Truck Radio audio podcast with Bob Chandler? I can't watch the video that's hosted on TMB while I'm at work and it will take forever to buffer the whole thing at home. I'd assume they aren't updating the Castle Rock site at all with it since...

    Fuel Cells

    The recent Video of Heart Breaker's backflip attempt and subsequent crash that resulted in (what looked like) a fuel spill got me thinking: Why do these trucks only have these simple plastic fuel cells? I'm not sure what they are made of, but they appear to be a type of plastic similar to that...

    The Competitor - 1991 USHRA Newsletter

    I stumbled upon this link while doing some research on various old-school topics, and figured it was worth posting here. Some great info on the end of the '91 season. Does anyone have any of these types of documents in their possession and if so could you post them? I couldn't find any others on...
