Favorite Mike Welch MT?


Well-Known Member
In honor of Mike Welch getting inducted into the International Monster Truck Hall of Fame this year, I think the time has come to voice which monster truck he owned/built/ran that is your favorite. Remember, he built many monsters over the years, so I will try to come up with as many as I can think of. And please feel free to add one of your own on the condition that you know for a fact that it was/is a Mike Welch Motorsports truck. You wanted it, you got it:

1) Monster Mash

2) Super Pete

3) California Kid Crusher

4) Danger Zone

5) Red Baron stunt plane

6) Sharkie's Toy

7) Outlaw (sprint car body)

8) Lucky Logger

9) Flyin' Fire

Voice away!

Original Super Pete goes without saying. Most insane stage one truck ever. Beyond legendary.

Pirate Pete. This truck handled great and was bad-fast when it came out in 93. Without a doubt the best race truck Mike ever built. Pretty much unstoppable w/ Big Mike behind the wheel on small arena/fairgrounds Chicago Style courses.

The Super Pete Racer/Cal Kid yellow tube chassis w/ airplane shocks on all 4 corners. Very unique design, wild freestyle truck, consistently got the biggest air of any MWM truck in history.

Favorite paint job was the green airbrushed movie monster scheme on Freak Show.

Not trying to hijack the thread, but what were some of the differences between Pirate Pete and California Kid chassis?

Anyone got a picture of the truck he did with the sprint car body? Haven't seen it myself, sounds like a different concept and would like to see what it looked like
