Colby with TheMonsterBlog.com made a trip out to Stockton, CA last weekend to take video of the show and he sent us this video he made of Major Payne. Kind of neat showing our fans an inside view of driving the tank.#sur #straightupracing #majorpaynemonstertank #americashotrodtank K&N Filters SCAT Crankshafts COMP Cams Dart Machinery Miller Welders Milodon JE Pistons ARP MAHLE Motorsport North America Permatex Akerly & Childs Honda Generators TCI Automotive Wilwood Disc Brakes Safety-Kleen TOYO TIRES Flow Master B&M Racing AutoMeter Products, Inc.

Monster Truck Turned Tank Puts on a Mind Boggling Display of Shocking Athleticism
When it comes to ingenuity and trying to tackle something that ends up being just a little bit different, you can look to a vehicle that shares the characteristics of Major Payne to start talking about a ride that falls into that category. As if building a monster truck with tons of power on tap wasn’t enough, the madman behind this one decided that he would take the truck with the monstrous blower and instead of putting it on four tires, do a little bit of converting so that it would be more like a military machine, creating a sort of high-performance tank to rip its way through the rough terrain.
In this one, it’s all about showing exactly what the tank can do from a variety of different angles. Whether we’re checking it out from afar or onboard and practically feeling what it’s like to push all of that torque through some tracks, this video gives you the unique opportunity to really dig down and get an idea of exactly what something like this is like. Of course, nothing could compare to actually seeing it in person but a display like this brings you one step closer to doing just that as you’re put on the scene in Stockton, CA.
If you follow along down in the video below, you get a good glimpse of Major Payne as it sports that awesome tank conversion and massive supercharger that is screaming with power. We think something like this is really a build that will make you stop what you’re doing and stare for a couple of moments to see exactly what it’s capable of. We all enjoy our different facets of the performance community, but I really think that this is one machine that most gearheads will simply fall in love with!
