Is this a dead forum?

@Angie to answer your question about why the sim monsters forum is still active, it’s because they all play rigs of rods. It’s not so active on most parts of the thread other than the RoR sections.

I hope you can. I think just posting frequently with the one or two people here might help. I’m sure several of the old members still lurk here every now and again. If they see activity, they might start posting regularly again. I’ll try to post here as often as possible.

I would post here a lot more if there were more activity, but from what I can see; there are only one or 2 new posts a day. So I check in maybe once a week or so.

It takes people to start posting. I, for one, have raised some pretty good topics that should get people excited, but all I get is crickets. I’m starting my racing team later this year and building my first truck. This much I know for sure. If I don’t start this year, it will definitely be next year. I’ve got a lot of capital to work with so I’m looking into pursuing things within the monster truck industry that I’ve dreamed of forever. I’m looking into the possibility of creating a new series too. One that will focus on racing and growing the sport into a legitimate motorsport. I’ve spoken about this on other threads.

I’m definitely serious, but time will tell if I’m able to go forward with the racing series plans. I know that the industry today is pathetic. It is stalled out. Teams make nothing. They’re barely able to pull their trucks off the trailer. I want to reignite brand competition, establish a legitimate racing league, get teams well-funded, and bring the sport to where it needs to be.

Well, can't say it's all dead, I'm an oldskool fan that's been lurking reading posts for the past month. Jeezus, learned more about MTs now than I did as. Bigfoot obsessed 8 year old.

I see two things here. One is, a bunch of promoting of other sites and face Book which is one reason this site is dead.... Many have moved to Face Book as someone here is suggesting we do, amongst going to other sites. It's a shame that it's so bad that people post other links to sites for you to go to. I know that most sites such as mine would ban you for promoting sites ( even unrelated) to take members away to. And I'm not into self promotion. I don't need to be. That is very destructive to a site and is one reason they die off. That's too bad, someone is paying good money to keep this one alive for some reason or is it a free platform?? I don't really care and this may be my first and only post because of what I see now. Troll activity. I've been getting e-mail alerts for this???????? I've been a member for a while but found no reason to post for lack of activity and now I see why. I'm now off to register in those other groups and check out the face book groups and maybe they are more active. OOOOOOOOOOPS!

With F nut book a "social media user" can get and post messages instantly, satisfying that instant gratification requirement most brains have. Plus they will help sway your vote for next election. I don't recall seeing anything about Steven having this sites posts subpoenaed.

What are you talking about? " I don't recall seeing anything about Steven having this sites posts subpoenaed."

Dunno much about the whole Facebook post seopena thing since I'm new here.

I do lurk on the Facebook pages a little bit, but I might be dumping Facebook before too long because there are some things I don't agree with about their platform and how some of the users conduct themselves...of course that's outside of this community I've started lurking again after being away since the 90s for the most part.

Welcome. I've seen many posts on Facebook about people leaving due to not liking the way it's going. Hang around here, bring your friends and be able to find a post much easier.

A question. I'm totally drawing a blank. There was a MT built that used aluminum for the majority of it's structural parts: frame, axles..
I seem to recall it didn't hold up well and remember seeing a picture of it with a broken axle. What was the name of that truck? Thanks.

@WizardMaster. I need to get on that other sites info and kill it. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
You're welcome. And sorry if my post was so blunt but only a wake up call. I can see that this site is far from dead and I will post links to it to my friends on FB if you don't mind. To wake up a site, we need to go out and recruit our friends into becoming members. We need to find other links to other RELATED type of sites and squash them with a warning that further promotion of sites will not be tolerated until the message get's out. My post was mainly sarcasm with a few tasty spices added...:D:D;):rolleyes: Thank-You for taking it well. I get so discouraged on other sites when nobody answers. Makes me wonder what's going on. This is a great site and a great platform and hope to see more people speak up! Until then, I'll just leave this right here.........:D

That looks like it would be a fun ride. Does it have a V-6 ? Has the tranny, trans case or axles been upgraded?
Would love to see an action pic or 2. That's one way to make it fit. LOL !!

Here's my thoughts:
Feld made a horrible mistake when they started that points series in 2015. You know the saying, "If isn't broke, don't fix it?." That year, is when they cut the racing down to 8 trucks (now it's 14), and began sending multiple versions of the same truck to the world finals. I love Grave Digger, but we only need one at the championships! I am not hating on any drivers out there, but too many versions of the same truck ruins the competition. Charlie Pauken should always drive the Mutt at the world finals because he won a championship in that vehicle 9 years ago. If I were Feld, I'd put Tyler Menniga in Blue Thunder, Morgan Kane in Alien Invasion, and Brandon Vinson in the Rottweiler instead of a Grave Digger at Orlando. The points series is a joke to me, and they were doing fine without it.

I watch Monster Jam on NBC sports and cannot stand the way they cover it. One hour isn't enough to get all the action that one sees at a Monster Jam show. You only see highlights from the racing and two wheel skills and selected freestyle action. Remember when Speed would split the show into two episodes? We saw everything. Just because they moved it to a new network doesn't mean they should do a half-butt job of covering it. And don't get me wrong, I love freestyle, but I love racing too. And for Pete's sake, Leslie Mears talks too much! I don't want to hear her running her mouth when I could see trucks in action.

Meanwhile, I think Feld is
Iying to us when it comes to why they're no longer using crush cars. How can they be hazardous? Last year, I went to an independent show in Conroe, Texas and there were crush cars on the track. I remember the freak accident in 2009, but has anyone been killed by debris since then? No! They are being lazy. A monster truck track without crush cars is like a Christmas tree without ornaments. I heard someone say the reason why obstacles like crush cars are no longer used is because of money. That's not true. Feld is just being lazy. If they can operate hundreds of shows around the world, then how can they be unable to pay the junkyard"s fees for borrowing crush cars?
