    Wow Guys It looks great, I told you black was the way to go Cant help but have a quiet moment for Kiwi Thunder, that beast put me through a lot, the enjoyment seen on kids faces when I first drove it in Richmonds Santa Parade will never leave me, The darling old ladies in Motueka who wanted to hear it rev louder, The stares of amazement on the cops faces as we just drove past weighbridges in the North Island, The thousands of people that stopped and stared while I parked it at the cafe in Murchison (Jason Gunn being more excited than most of the kids) or the drivers seat just going off in the Louisville pushing Grant into the roof while trying to negotiate a hill in the middle of nowhere, then there was the heartbreak after seeing it in such a bad state in Taupo and the following Repo A toast to Kiwi Thunder and another to HBMONSTERTRUCKS for continuing the dream that alot of previous owners have had, to have a fun in NZs first and always the best Monstertruck Cheers Guys Nigel

  • Something a bit different

    Benn Milne by Benn Milne
    They say sharing is caring so here is the latest, it has helped me ten fold achieve the things I want out of life both personal and business so I thought Id sharing with you guys! Try it or dont the choice is yours!! And dont just limit it to money, anything you want is yours just put pen to paper and then BELIEVE TO RECIEVE!

    Set a goal for yourself right out of the box, know what you want and why you need to achieve. Decide what you will do to get to where your goals are and take positive action each and every day towards your vision. Set something aside for charity and live with passion each and every day you are on your journey.

    Recommended - Complete Your Formula For Riches

    1. How much? Fix in your mind the exact amount of money you desire. It is not sufficient merely to say, “I want plenty of money.” Basic financial literacy - be definite as to the amount, whether it’s a gross or net figure in annual income or a specified net worth. FURTHER, vivified in accord with the vakogëm factor, what does that wealth look like for you? What houses? Cars? Who are you with? What’s your family situation? Opportunities? Sports? Travel? Causes? Contributions you make?…

    2. When? Establish a definite date when you intend to possess the money you desire. Without this, you do not have a target you can mobilize your own and the energies of the Cosmic toward.

    3. How? Determine exactly what you intend to give in return for the money you desire.
    There is no such reality as “something for nothing.” The only way you can get massively rich is to contribute massively to society. It’s the Law. What’s your passion? What’s your niche?

    4. Organized planning. Create a definite plan for carrying out your desire, and begin at once, whether you are ready or not, to put this plan into action.

    5. Craft a positive proactive statement. Write out a clear, concise statement of the amount of money you intend to acquire, name the time limit for its acquisition, state what you intend to give in return for the money, and describe clearly the plan through which you intend to accumulate it.

    6. Program it. Read your written statement aloud, at least twice daily, once just before retiring at night, and once after arising in the morning. If you are motivated and conscious you’ll find at least a dozen opportunities daily! As you read – see, feel and believe yourself already in possession of the money.

    It is important that you follow the instructions described in these six steps. It is especially important that you observe and follow the instructions in the sixth step.

    And as you do, enter into the feel of the vision until you are seduced to believe it’s real, just like a real dream. Where are you? What do you see? Who are you with? What do you hear? What are people saying? What charities are you helping? What is the weather doing? Where are you? What are you wearing? How do you feel? What are you saying and doing? What do you do to celebrate? Are you at dinner? Where? What is the course?

    We have got Demon back on board for a second season and will have a events calander confirmed soon!!
    We will be looking at doing a few shows on the way back from Auckland so if you know anyone that can help us along the way leave us a message!!
    We have also got Vavoline on board as our oil suppliers and are looking into a tool supplier as well so keep you posted!!

  • UPDATE!!! Coming soon!!!!!

    All about Kiwi Thunder

    Since Christmas time 1987, Kiwi Thunder has been gripping crowds all over the North and South Islands of New Zealand. An old truck by today’s standards Kiwi Thunder is one of very few original monster trucks still around, remaining virtually unchanged since its inception. It is also one of fewer monster trucks to be built using an Asian branded vehicle, that being a Nissan utility. Throughout the past two decades Kiwi Thunder has remained a steady performer, used primarily for promotional purposes, yet carrying with it the awesome ability to catch air over crush cars if the need ever so arises.

    Early off-road racing identity and original owner Mike Parkes built Kiwi Thunder without ever having seen a monster truck in person. Mike took his inspiration from photos of other monster trucks performing in the United States at the time. With nothing more than those photos, Parkes instinctively over-engineered the truck, building it strong and heavy in every respect. As too in the US such an instinct was common and consisted the inborn pattern of monster truck designs at the time. The donor body selected to pair with the frame was a stock Nissan Navara King Cab, stripped of its driveline and original motor then mounted to the chunky straight rail chassis, housing all the major ‘monster’ components. Despite the construction of the truck coming together quite favourably, there were the inevitable complications which would naturally present themselves to any person not yet well acquainted to monster truck physics. Among other problems early on, the truck frequently melted transmissions. Nevertheless, these were all problems soon remedied within the first six months. Quite interestingly, Kiwi Thunder was only ever built with front wheel steering and to this day remains as such. In a world where monster trucks should (and sometimes must) manoeuvre with all four wheels, Kiwi Thunder still maintains the steering tradition of it’s long departed Navara driveline.

    Being a true New Zealand creation, it was almost inevitable that Kiwi Thunder would make the short journey across the Pacific to compete against Australia. In 1989, the Monster Truck Challenge marked that very occasion and Kiwi Thunder was finally placed face to face with Australia’s own Aussie Battler. However, what was expected to be a fierce rivalry was immediately transformed into comradery, as the Challenge tour also saw competition in the form of the two American monster trucks, Bigfoot and Taurus. The Monster Truck Challenge was a huge success across both Australia and New Zealand, and could be credited with sparking an interest in the fans that was bolstered by the home grown behemoths.

    In its enduring presence, Kiwi Thunder has seen a fair share of different owners and drivers, most of which had kept it in shape. Everybody who had handled the great old truck took it for what it was and made no undue effort to push it beyond its measures. Since its creation, Kiwi Thunder was always the show pony, well manicured and out there for a bit of fun, and it seemed as though the truck would take care of those who took care of it. Retired European monster truck veteran, Ian Batey began his long successful monster trucking career behind the wheel of Kiwi Thunder back in 1993. The skills Batey developed behind the wheel of this humble truck would lead him on a venture, driving monster trucks all over the world, including most of Asia and Europe. Finally settling in Europe, Batey would serve a vital role in the establishment of the European monster truck industry. As time went on, Kiwi Thunder would succeed through further owners and drivers, including well known off-road enthusiast, racer and businessman Warren Arthur who passed away in late 2006. The truck now rests in the ownership of Nigel Baillie, who continued the tradition of the old truck, displaying it at various venues throughout New Zealand.

    Dramatically, the rich history behi
