From Christmas Eve 2014, this is the legendary Dan Runte taking the all-new Bigfoot 21 for its first ever test run over a set of cars.

      I know that they've started on # 22 and with #10 and #11 being retired and dismantled (don't know why) there's plenty of parts that could be used to built #22 and a #23 if they wanted to.

      That event was back in 2015 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. It was probably one of the last times that #'s 10 and 11 were still together before being dismantled.

      I wouldn't say totaled, those trucks were at the Summit Racing Equipment event even though they were damaged. They just weren't able to race those trucks again. Then again, Bigfoot was probably like, why keep these trucks around and together being that they're damaged pretty badly. I would have just retired them and kept them as display trucks at the shop. They do have plenty of parts for 2 new trucks.

      Wayne Norbrey, Jr  #11 was also in a wreck that totaled it as well. Remember 10 and 11 were built in 91 and 92

      Sweet ride. It's a shame feed aka Satan won't have Bigfoot but I guess they're scared foot would make their corporate trucks look like junk.

      Why is the chassie so weirdly built?

      The reason why the chassis on monster trucks today are designed this way is to both maximize strength in areas where normally it wood be weak building a monster truck. And racing a monster truck today is much more sophisticated than what it used to be they go much farther faster jump higher and flip faster then they ever did before in the past if you were to triey doing the stunts with monster trucks of the past that todays monster trucks do you would easily destroy The frame and you would suffer greater abuse and severe injuries takes me back to U.S. Hot Rod event with Jim Reese in the ampm Rocket truck landed to the side and literally broke the frame in half also takes me back to Dallas Texas back in 1990 when Marvin Smith in Wild Hair collided into Bennett Clarks Clydesdales and broke the frame in half you can't do that with today's monster trucks it takes a lot more than that to break their frame in half the frame is also designed to take the energy of the impact and disperse it into other parts of the frame where it meets up with the shocks instead of with your back remember monsters don't have suspensions on their seats and even when they did in the past they didn't help match the mor suspensions travel you have the easier it is on you and on the truck you're breaking Les parts the light the truck is the longer it lasts your doing less abused to your equipment so it lasts longer design also minimizes the amount of weakness in the roll cage as well 8 in to 24 in to 28 and future coming soon 35 to almost 45 in of suspension travel technology for monster trucks is advancing and as it continues to advance they will still jump farther higher and go faster setting new records until in the end there can only be one the question now is which one Willie Be?

      THAT is a damn fine chassis that's designed to maximize strength while minimizing weight - it looks 'weird' because it doesn't have a lot of excessive tubes that add minimal strength with excess weight like you see on a lot of trucks. As someone that's been a hardcore off roading fan for a long time, especially rock crawling & desert racing, it's nice to see a lot more real engineering coming into monster trucks when the scene has traditionally been a little too much "just throw more metal & weld rod at it!"

      Yeah, but he also built 10-16's chassis as well. The guy's at Bigfoot finished them from there.

       Wayne Norbrey, Jr, Dan Patrick was with Bigfoot on chassis 8 and 9 only, 10 through 17 used the same familiar design as 8 and 9 but was mid engine and put together by Bigfoot's head mechanic Roy Hoosier. I have a old vhs video recording of Mike Galloway that speaks about Dan's involvement with the Bigfoot organization.

      Think #21 gonna be better than #18. Dan said he thinks it has a lot more to offer than #18. The previous chassis were designed by Bob and built by Dan Patrick (8-16) and were good pieces. Think when they seen the Lil Mis Dangerous with the Concussion chassis a few years back maybe that's what spawn them to consider trying it. I was surprised they didn't go back with Dan Patrick, but change isn't always bad.
