  1. hey

    just wanted to say thanks for coming over to jersey – saw the trucks up on the mound this morning and can’t wait to see the show.

    hope you have a good week over here!


  2. Hey!
    We’re really looking forward to the Show over here hopefully it will be great fun and you’ll enjoy it
    See u there!!!

  3. Oh Wow…..Amazing show in Jersey (Friday 5.30).
    I have loads of photos and videos which I’d love to share.

    Also, at the end of the show me and my boy came to have a photo up close with the trucks. I am a big-time Big Pete fan!!! Love that Monster. And I got chatting to the driver of Grim Reaper….was it CJ? (think that’s him on the website).
    I want to get a poster and other merchandise on this site and CJ (??) said that I could get you guys to send it to me pre- signed as I really wanted one signed today but you’d run out.

    I can’t wait to see you back in Jersey….(I wanna get up in Big Pete for a photo next time ….hehehe).
    Great Job Guys ….and Girl (Wooohooo) lol xx

  5. Thanks for the comment! Glad you enjoyed the show! Hopefully we’ll be back to visit again in the future

  6. Was great to see you at the Monster truck nationals yesterday, you made by 3 year old’s day! “Big Pete” is now his firm favourite.

  7. Awesome stuff on Sunday 20th at Santa Pod, money well spent, total respect for you guys too, having spent two minutes in the back of the red dragon at a fraction of what you guys get up to the forces are at low speed were crazy, you guys have to be mad 🙂 take care and keep on trucking..

  8. Big Pete is my favorite too, partly because it reminds me of my old R/C car I had in my teens, RIP Bullhead :(, but mainly because it’s so damn cool.
