BigFoot goes electric
An electric ICE crushing machine!
Hmm... I think some monster truck fans will be disappointed in that.
It would be one of the few places I think burning noxious gas, loud noises, spitting flames and such is actually a bit appropriate...
Interesting that they decided to do that, but making the car crushing more quiet and less raucous seems a bit anti-climatic.
Well, you'll be able to hear the crushing itself, not just the standard motor sound.

I think this is just great! To have an electric in one of the bastions of engine land will show what it can do. Just so it does not go over like the "historic screening" section of Big Wednesday I had a few ideas.
Mic the electric motor and play it back though the PA system. Just a bit.
Come up with events that favor electric's,
A flag drop tug-of-war.
A drag race.
A steep climb.
Spin the tires burnout.

There is no bigger name in Monster trucks. That they have done an electric is a validation of the powertrain. I hope they keep it competitive.
I remember going to a monster truck show when I was about 6. It was awesome, until the trucks started driving. Then it was too loud. Despite earplugs we left after about 30 minutes. I think secretly my dad was crushed. I do remember thinking it was cool afterwards, but during I hated all the noise.
Maybe they have an "intermission" where the monster truck show goes all electric so people like you can arrive late at 8 PM for the quiet power time and then leave early.
This will be great, have it show up at an EV drag race event and crush some ICE cars! My 3 year old LOVES monster trucks, it's great that they have an electric one for him now.
The BigFoot team built an electric monster truck. While its just a prototype it may eventually see some car crushing....

Cool Thing. Imagine the power it would have if they put a motor for every wheel. Instead of having it go through the old drive shafts. It would be like a Model X Monster truck.
