Monster Truck

Building Instructions

Programming Instructions

This remote control program allows you to drive and steer the truck using the "skid steer" technique. Skid steer needs the wheels to slip on the surface to work well, so it steers best on carpet, not smooth surfaces.

A Modification to Try

Is it better for a monster truck to have independent suspension, or should the rear wheels pivot together like a "solid axle" rear end? Does it depend on the situation? What about the front wheels? You can easily experiment with this by tying the rear and/or front wheels together with a beam as shown below.
