Cool builds! They look very good. My only personal gripe is the monster truck. It leans forward too much for my liking. I would move the cab back a few studs and lengthen the hood. :classic:

Can I ask why you decided to use two servo motors on the monster truck? 

All in all, a very nice project!  :thumbup: :classic:

I decided to use 2 servo motors because it was easier to make it both axle steering. For example 9398 has just 1 SERVO but there are 2 L motors for each axle. I wanted to make driving system stable and I think it is better with one motor for driving and 2 for steering. 

Also If You have two IR receivers and two remotes You can control each axle separately.

 

About the monster truck cab- I like that "long tail" style and I wouldn't change it:)

The trailer is awesome. The battery box is really well hidden, the functions work great and it's a nice mix of studded and studless. :thumbup:

I see. I like the idea of controlling axles separately. Switching from 4 wheel, to crab, to 2 wheel steering in an instant!

As for the style. Well, if everyone liked the same thing. Life would be pretty boring! :laugh:
