Many people have some kind of hobby that they dedicate their life to. Some choose to collect sports cards and others choose to collect comic books. Some people collect trinkets that only just sit there for people to look at, others might collect dolls. Since the 1960's, toy and car enthusiasts have flocked to a hobby that combines both their passions. That hobby is RC vehicles (remote control trucks, boats, cars, airplanes, and helicopters.) The good thing about collecting these models is that you can put them in a display and set it on the mantle for all to see and admire, or you can actually take them outside and play with them.
One of the many different vehicle types you can purchase in model form, are remote control trucks. In the past, the most popular style of RC truck you would see was a stadium style truck. Now the most popular toy truck people buy is modeled after monster trucks. The older stadium trucks were ideal for flat and smooth dirt surface tracks, while the monster trucks you see today are fitted for a more rugged terrain, much like the differences between the real life versions. The monster truck variety of model vehicles even features the giant oversized tires found on the real thing.
The early sorts of remote control trucks were not nearly as refined as the models you see today. They were pretty much the same base as a remote control car, just with a truck body. If you tried to drive one of the older models through any kind of terrain that was the slightest bit rougher than grass or pavement, the truck could not handle it. Also, with the older models, you would buy a kit and have to pretty much put together the whole truck. Luckily, most of the models come already put together. You may have to put together a big piece or two, but most of the work is done for you.
The remote control trucks of today have advanced quite a bit from the older models, as small as they may be in size, today's models pack a ton of technology inside. They now feature suspension, detailed engines, life like steering, and other electronics. It may even be difficult for someone not familiar with RC vehicles to mistake a photo of a model for the real thing.
