Rollin' Thunder is an SUV-like Metal Maniacs vehicle with a large engine and a red paint job. It's only driver is Monkey.

History

First version

The first version seems to be the weaker version, as it could not go over 300 mph and was destroyed by a drone energy ball in one hit, in the Storm Realm.

Second version

A second Rollin' Thunder was brought in by Porkchop on Old Smokey to replace it. The second version is not used in many of the races Monkey participates in, due to Nolo smashing it's window before the Metro Realm and Monkey riding in Old Smokey during the Junk Realm. It is used in the Lava, Cliffside, Ice & Neon Pipeline Realms. The second version vanishes between "Breaking Point" and "The Ultimate Race", though it could have been destroyed during the events of the Ruins Realm.

Porkchop also ripped the door off, and didn’t fix it. Afterward, Monkey replaces it with Rat-ified.
