That is a tractor axle with integrated steering. Lots of monster trucks have setups like that.

Station is right on,they are the ZF tractor axles that a lot of the monster teams run including the bigfoot team.
I really looked these things over at the summer jambo at bloomsburg but I am really not sure who runs a front engine anymore. If you look at pic 3 you can see the seat and orbital valve behind the engine.

I also see the cantilever linkage on the rear shocks which team bigfoot runs, ford powered, but all the bigfoot trucks had polished bodies on the nightstalker shocks.
Might be and old bigfoot truck that somebody runs out west.

I like the clear firewall, the rear radiator and pump (why does it need a rear pump?)

Ideas I will probably use

That's like saying lots of fighter jets go fast.

To a redneck like me, that's space engineering juju. Maybe monster trucks are not as as I used to think.

It's the cycle of life. At 12, monster trucks ruled. At 19, they were stupid. At 30, after PBB web-wheeling, they're cool again.

Kind of makes my little Toyota project look a little stupid.

Funny story...

Im not too sure what to say about all this, other than the fact that there are some good engineers working on these beasts.

Anyways, I went to a track to see a "race" there were a few top trucks, ex. Monster Patrol, the rock, BearFoot and Stone cold I believe. Anyways to the point of the story.
Im not so sure your Yota is as bad as you think.

The Monster trucks raced and then there was a tuff truck challenge. We first see a newer 4 runner (daddy paid for it) and a good looking poser jeep come on the track. Everyone expected this to be a lame event. Everyone was yelling and hollering for the tuff trucks to come back out and the monster trucks to go away. Everyone got more entertainment out of the little trucks, than the bigger ones. By the end of the night The 4 runner had broken a leaf, the jeep broke 4 axles, a driveshaft and front end was torn up.
sorry for the long post.

I was thinking that with all those contraptions and stuff, that is it the "FROG".

Wrong again?
