Well we have always liked the ol' Monster trucks,Starting with Big Foot..We have also over the years tried to make some in slot car style.Some success,some not.I've used just about any thing for a drop arm.Most of it flexible..I think that was part of the problem.Ran across a guy on U-tube that has it figured out.He is making a chassis with a brass drop arm.Well we had no brass but I did have some thin steel..Cut it down to size,wired her up and away the Truck went.Not a pretty job at all but ran good right out of the gate.Sooooo,ordered some brass and made a brass drop arm..First time I've ever been able to get brass to stick :D ..Now I see why you guys keep building out of brass..
This got me to wanting to build a Monster truck track with ramps,jumps and the like.For now we are just using our 1/24 Carrera track for testing...Edit...Please see a later post for our new Track....Here is a Short video of Kat driving a MONSTER....

Rusty,

That monster truck it too cool! Can you attach a bunch of small cars to the track and then run over them with the monster truck?

Best regards,

Dug out some ol' Strombecker track from the 60's..Had just enough to make a decent size one lane layout by using a crossover.Copper taped the very used track and then started having some fun :D .Plan on making some more jumps and such.The little monsters are fun to run and will do some amazing tricks.The video shows one running at a slow speed.Had to turn down the power so we could record.Using a small adjustable power supply with a Parma controller..More to come...
