At USAthe monster trucks are extremely popular, with races to be done in packed stages and tracks.
One of these outrageously in size and power vehicles entered the dynamometer thanks to the people of the channel FuelTech USA on YouTube.
The car belongs to the team Bad Companyand with driver John Gordon “supervising” proceedings.
The first challenge for FuelTech is to raise the car to dynamometerbut also to proceed to configurations to reduce the torqueas if they let the engine make as much torque as it wanted, it would overload the dyno and render any testing fruitless.
And this, because in his “heart”. monstertruck one is found 8.8L V8 engine from the Chevroletwhich runs with methanol – with the incredible consumption of 56 liters for twominutes of competitiondriving.
As far as the results are concerned, the motor reaches the third test to perform 1.112 PSwhile in the last run he touched them 1.168 PS – power capable of moving their monster truck 6.803 kg.
