EnerSys, producer of Odyssey brand batteries, is a sponsor of the 2012 Bigfoot 4×4 monster truck team. To get into the spirit of things, thirty-six Odyssey batteries were outfitted to power the motor of a monster truck converted to electric power. Watch the exhibition-only vehicle show that it can crush cars with the best of them, even if it sounds like the world’s largest radio-controlled truck!
The Odyssey Battery Bigfoot is powered by a 350-horsepower electric motor that cranks out 850 pound-feet of torque. Thirty Odyssey batteries are used to power the motor, while six more provide power to the brakes and steering.
Dave McMullen, director of commercial marketing at EnerSys, says, “We’ve been sponsoring BIGFOOT® monster trucks for almost ten years. The punishing conditions of a monster truck race are a perfect demonstration of ODYSSEY® batteries at their rugged best.”
