Are you looking for a great way to entertain a little guy in your house? If so then this is for you! For just $10 for their tickets, you can take your kiddos to see Monster Jam which is coming to the Allstate Arena in Chicago this February 2011.
Monster Jam is a live motorsport event featuring monster trucks. I remember as a little girl getting to go to one of these shows and how exciting it was to see the cars smashing stuff! Yeah, there’s nothing like a little destruction to get me excited! Since then of course the cars have advanced and got bigger and better and yes, safer!Today’s monster trucks use lightweight bodies and tires so more strength and weight can be put into the frame without sacrificing speed, maneuverability, or safety. Here are some cool stats I found:
- Custom body trucks can be carved by hand out of Styrofoam and wood to create a “plug” which is then used to create a fiberglass body mold or created by computers.
- Most monster trucks have the driver seated in the center of the vehicle so he or she can best see the track for weight distribution.
- Airbushing is expensive and time consuming as some trucks require more than 40 hours of paint time.
- Custom-built, supercharged and methanol-injected, a monster truck engine burns up to 10 liters of methanol per run (approximately 80 meters) and delivers about 1,500 horsepower.
- The average monster truck team will go through 8 tires in one year. Carving just one tire requires over 50 hours of exacting labor.
