Outback Thunda is a monster truck that is currently competing in a number of different shows across Australia. The driver, Clive Featherby, had been driving for 13 years. He is also the founder of KC's Fireworks Displays Aust. as well as Monster Truck Promotions Australia. It has also run under the name Electrical Products.
In 2000, Clive first created a truck called Broncos Magic, which was a supporting truck for local football club Brisbane Broncos. Clive thought the truck was dull, because the truck was barely visible at speedway shows, and wasn't very popular with the kids. Then, in 2003, Clive designed and built Outback Thunda 1.5. Outback Thunda 1.5 ran for about 6 years, before being replaced by a new, modern version of Outback Thunda with a chassis imported from the USA by Patrick Enterprises.
Paul Shafer, who was competing with Clive for various years, suggested that the team should take the next step, and compete in the Monster X Tour. Clive accepted the deal and in 2012 Clive had his first arena show in the USA. Thunda competed in the USA for about a year before heading home. In the month of October 2013, a new body was announced. Clive said that the new body was supposed to represent attitude.
