+ - BIGFOOT monster truck goes electric->

Submitted by cylonlover
cylonlover (1921924) writes "A "green" car-stomping, metal-twisting, glass-shattering monster truck may seem like an oxymoron, but it's also a reality. BIGFOOT, one of the most famous monster trucks in the world, has received an all-electric makeover. Bigfoot 4x4, Inc. teamed up with battery manufacturer EnerSys to create the ODYSSEY Battery BIGFOOT No. 20 Monster Truck, which is claimed to be the world's first electric monster truck. We'll just go ahead and call it E-BIGFOOT. The vehicle uses 36 ODYSSEY PC1200 car batteries, thirty of which power the custom-built DC electric motor that was developed by Phoenix-based motor builder Dennis Berube. The motor puts out 350 horses and more than 800 lb-ft (1,085 Nm) of direct-drive torque."
