    I think it's an excellent idea!!!:D

    As long as both trucks are equally matched, but I see a problem who's gonna drive Sanke Bite afterall they have a choice of drivers like Ricky Rattler, Colt Cobra or Steve Slither?

    A question for Tim Knerr or Scott Bryant. Was Mongoose based on a ford body and who drove/owned it? I think I remember seeing the Mongoose truck in one of my old vhs tapes. Thanks in advance!

    YEAH, THATS MARKS TRUCK, AND HE CURRENTLY RUNS IT. THAT WAS HIS MUD RACER TOO BUT, ITS GONE.
    HES THE ONE I GOT MY TRUCK FROM. IT WAS HIS FIRST MONSTER TRUCK.

    THATS WHY I WAS A LITTLE CONFUSED WHEN "AMERICAN RIDE" SAID THE DRIVER WAS Tommy Mckewin

    I DO wish they would run Snake Bite more often.

    The truck looks great. I suppose promotors would prefer to have a name like BIGFOOT present that everyone recognizes rather than something like Snake Bite that probaby doesn't provide near the drawing power, despite being from the Bigfoot organization. I image most common folk don't know that and thus, promotors probably say, "we're gonna want the "Bigfoot" name."

    I believe the vhs tape was one of those compilation tapes with no talking just constant action played with a rock and roll audio track. I think it was a ushra tape. This tape would have to be at least 15 to 18 years old. WOW! Stop the press! It just hit me! I believe the name of the tape was shake, battle and roll. Can anyone else verify that?

    Thank you for posting opinion's as some of you got it and some did not! I myself think its a natural fit as i worked in the drag racing circuit anouncing with Bret Kempner at Great Lakes Dragway. We both thought it would work in monster trucks to create a classic battle of the snake vs. the mongoose! Evan Mark Watrose will back up the statement that Bob Chandler has tried to buy the Mongoose name from Mark,of course with Mark saying NO! For some of you that do not know of Mark Watrose and the Mongoose monster truck they are a top notch team with kick butt equipment everytime they hit the track. Mark has owned and operated the Michigan Off-Road Center in Lansing,MI. for the past thirty years. Mark has drove for years and now his son Brian 17 years old is taking some seat time driving the Mongoose monster truck. This past summer Brian took the wheel of the Mongoose truck and gave the GET-ER-DONE monster truck a run for the money at the Door County Fair show in Sturgeon Bay,WI. Besides liking the Mongoose truck i have always loved the Snake Bite truck from Big Foot 4x4!

    Thanks guys enjoy and post some more opinions please!

    Go to our website http://apmotorsports.tripod.com/ or use a search engine for American Promotions Motorsports Entertainment and go to the photo page and check out the 2007 shows. Lots of pictures of the Mongoose and we are from Green Bay,WI.I have been doing shows with Mark since 1987.

    Thank you Mike

    Far from a leafer,look closer and you will see a unique suspension Mark designed and it can take big air shots over and over!!
