About This File
This is a replica of the 2nd USA-1 monster truck, driven by Rod Litzau & Steve Wilke. Rod drove this truck to victory in the inaugural TNT Motorsports national points championship, in 1988. Litzau would continue driving in 1989, until a crash in Flint, Michigan sidelined him for the remainder of the year. Former crew chief Steve Wilke would step in to replace Rod for the remaining events of the '89 season, and would continue to campaign the truck through the 1990 TNT season.
This pack contains 4 versions of the truck:
-"Debut" (as the truck appeared in a magazine photoshoot, with aluminum rims, prior to its first competition event in 1988)
While the truck doesn't feature an actual pulling hitch (the actual truck was never used for sled pulling), I included a hitch node in the node-beam, so that it can be used with the pulling sled. To use with a pulling sled, use the mouse to drag the chain on the pulling sled to the hitch node (press "K" to show the nodes if needed), then press "L" to lock the chain to the hitch. When finished, press "L" again to unlock the hitch.
