Monster truck fans, get ready to journey back in time to witness history in the making. For the first time in almost 25 years, you are about to experience the thundering action of the monster truck superstars that started it all. So, get ready for the greatest monster truck shows on earth. These are the Battle, Return and War of the Monster Trucks. Now, it’s time to roll on with the monster trucks. These are the biggest and toughest trucks in the world! They crush everything in their path, including busses. This is Taurus, weighing in at around 10,000 pounds! These trucks were originally built as novelties for recreational purposes, but nowadays, they’re in higher competition with each other to see who is King of the hill. This is Bigfoot. He’s the current King of the hill. This is Awesome Kong, and he is awesome! And who would ever believe these monsters can actually float on water, but it’s true! Due to the size of their tires, they skim along the water like giant pontoons. And, the more tires they have, the better they float, as shown by this huge eight wheeler. However, they have to be careful when they enter the water, approaching it straight on. If they go in at an angle, it creates problems. And, they soon find out that not all monster trucks can float. Talk about power and strength. Here, two monster trucks engage in a tug of war. The loser? Well, it’s the car in the middle. Is this an optical illusion? Are those tires really that big? You bet they are! Those are 11-foot tundra tires, used in some of the most brutal terrain in the world. Here, they turn slowly through a shallow mud pit. And, as you can see, this truck powered through with ease. But, that’s not always the case with mud pits. Here, the going gets tough for these mud racers, as they attempt to cannonball down a 4-foot deep mud pit. It’s even tough on the spectators. The object of mud racing is simple, get through the mud pit the quickest. And, with these big action mud slammers, you never know what’s going to happen. These thugs have had enough, they’re going to look for cleaner, drier seats. Meanwhile, back in the mud pit, another competitor gives it a try, but he’s all over the place. The crowd, well, they just love it! But then, they don’t have to clean up the mud. Here’s the Master Mudder. He thinks he’s got the competition beat because he’s using tractor tires. Wrong! Now, if you really want to get yourself through the mud, you need a tank. Monster tanks are becoming more and more popular. This one’s called The Beast. It’s a Chevrolet truck mounted on a vintage military tank. If you drive this baby, you can make tracks anywhere. This modern monster tank is faster, sleeker and more flexible. It’s controlled by two steering bars and can turn on a dime, and can smash cars with brute force. With their massive weight and twin engines, these monsters can survive anything! The monster trucks remain the favorites of the fans. Here’s some incredible side-by-side stadium racing. As these huge machines run flat out, with 4-wheel steering, turning corners is a lot easier. The rear wheels are turned or steered by a toggle switch on the dashboard. Amazing high-tech hydraulics allow the trucks to fly through the air, and huge breaking systems bring them to a safe stop. In small stadiums, short sprints are popular because they’re exciting. But, drivers have to be quick on the brakes. Here’s the world champion truck, Taurus, ready to take on another monster in an arena no bigger than a hockey rink. Can you imagine trying to maneuver a monster truck in an arena this size? But, these guys get the job done, though not without some problems as both trucks slide dangerously off course. Picking up momentum, they’re back on line. With less than half a lap to go, Taurus spins into the final corner, using excessive wheel speed to make the turn and crossing the finish line first. Now, Bigfoot and his archrival Bearfoot go at it with a vengeance. These two guys have had it in for each other since day one and they’ll do anything to win, even if it means wrecking the truck. Bigfoot’s the winner! But, the truck will need some serious attention. These trucks are built to take a pounding, and they usually do. A good truck will cost you around $100,000. And, the maintenance can be very expensive too, depending on how you drive it. The harder you drive it, the more time you’ll spend fixing it. These monster trucks are heavy and relatively stable, but at high speeds, any corner can be treacherous.
