About This File

Grave Digger XIV was a monster truck built and driven by Dennis Anderson in 2001, and continued to operate under different drivers from 2004 to 2010. After winning the World Finals Freestyle Championship in 2000, while having a sub-par head-to-head track record all season, Dennis decided to build Grave Digger XIV as a way to increase racing performance, and maintain freestyle performance after leaving Grave Digger VII. The truck debuted in 2001. Although having not won Dennis any Championships, this build is most famous for being piloted by Dennis during his 20th Anniversary season in 2002. Dennis later passed the truck down to Grave Digger and Blacksmith driver Carl Van Horn in 2004, while Dennis relocated to the freshly built Grave Digger XIX, which won him the World Finals Racing Championship that year.

A project that required much patience, much time, much effort, and a whole lot of people. A lot of fun to make, besides some ups and downs that may have been had. Glad to have been able to step up my truck making game with this!

Paints are grainy, the flags aren't even accurate, and the wheels on the front are backwards, among other things. Decent try tho.

Response from the author:

Your settings are obviously low, I made sure the flags were accurate, and the tires on 2002 are supposed to be reversed because that's how Dennis ran them.

I added this pack to my game, then when I tried to play it, Rigs of Rods wouldn't load. So, I deleted this pack, and then I had to delete the whole  Rigs of Rods game from my computer then reinstall it to play again. Luckily, all the other packs did not get uninstalled and still work.

Response from the author:

Are you using 0.4? Try checking the RoR log next time.
