Why aren't monster trucks diesel?!? They get gallons to the mile for a measely 1200-1400 horsepower with big block fords and chevy's. (rebuilt every week or so) These are $30,000+ engines why aren't they diesels (cummins) they could get more trq more longevity, and not waste so much fuel!
OK... on indoor tracks diesels black smoke a ton, but not all powerful diesels have to smoke like that!!!
Surely I'm not the only person to think of this, I've looked around on the net and cant find any. time to sit back and
Truckless, Carless, Homeless, Jobless
so I'm having a rough decade...... oh well.
when driving somthing that big inorder to put her in the air and stand it up on end in a confinde space you need very quick throttle responce a diesel would make a poor choice for a monster truck when crouds want quick action u figure every truck only runs for 2 min or 5 min tops no one wants to see a big truck like that rev for 30 sec so the turbo can spool up just to spin the tires or jump a car in a small area

Well I think weight would factor in there too. I mean I dunno how good the longevity is for a 1500-1700hp 5.9L Cummins is. They would most likely need to bump up to the 8.9L ISL or maybe even engines bigger like 13-15 liters and those motors are mighty heavy and would probably make the trucks even more top heavy and unstable...
