Power trip

THEY weigh 4.5 tonnes and stand three metres tall, and monster trucks demand attention even sitting still. 

Each truck has its obvious difference in the body, but under the skin, all are basically the same apart from a few minor differences.

Powered by supercharged 540 cubic inch big block Chevy motors, they produce more than 1500 horsepower, running through a two-speed Hughes transmission.

The trucks are four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steer and use every bit of that monstrous power to turn the huge 66-inch wheels. 

Each monster truck is valued at $250,000, with the body alone costing $30,000.

The list of EMT trucks coming to Nowra includes Scooby Doo, The Convict, Extreme, Raptors Rampage and the Triple M Monster Truck and they will be driven by a team of experienced professionals including Australia’s leading and most experienced monster truck driver Troy Garcia, US superstar Kreg Christensen, Hayden McCleary, Michael Long and Hayden Francis.
