Slap wheelie


Slap wheelie

A slap wheelie is a specific form of freestyle trick performed by monster trucks. The truck is jumped over an obstacle, the front wheels bounce off the ground when it lands (hence, the slap) and the driver lays into the gas pedal to use the torque of the engine to pull the truck into a wheelstand. While being a straight show of power, the trick is also considered a technical move because timing is critical in the application of power, or else the truck might be damaged or not go into a wheelstand. Some drivers who are famous for performing slap wheelies are Dan Runte (Bigfoot), Paul Shafer (Monster Patrol) and Kelvin Ramer (Natural High).
