Those look like some of the videos that used to be on the "Scotts4x4" website, up until a few months ago. It's good to see them back online. Thanks for posting!

If I'm not mistaken, that's Bloomsburg PA. They used to do that instead of the side by side racing. There's acctually video of the Bigfoot Shutte and, unbelievably, Bigfoot 5 running that course on several of the official Bigfoot VHS tapes and such.

This was posted on a forum about a week ago. It's footage of Super Monster appearing on a German tv show and running over a Clod Buster. My apologies if this has been posted already. Enjoy.

I gotta say, Supermonster is a beaut. Would love to get my hands on it.

Least it went out in style. Under BF 2's twin. IMHO Blame the guy at the controls, if he'd gone right, maybe it would've missed getting mashed. Was this a game show, and the object was to accomplish an objective before getting crushed? Just wondering, I once saw something like that once on a Nickleoden game show, except they used cheapo R/Cs.

Do my ears deceive me, or am I hearing "Magic Fly" by Space as the background music in the commercial at 1:16? Compare for yourself:

I wouldn't be surprised, seems like TV and video producers liked to use space disco and italo disco-type stuff a lot in the '80s as background music since most Americans wouldn't recognize it and they could get away without paying to use the songs.

Does anyone know what happened to the 1993 Worcester show that used to be on YouTube? When I click on it, is says "this video does not exist". and when I click on the video information it says "an error occoured, please try again later". Do you think it might have been removed by the user?

Not directly monster truck-related, but there's a familiar name competing in the ATV mud bogs at around 1:25...
