So, I went to Goodwill the other day and went straight to the toys sectons. I found an RC car without the controller for $2. I bought it, took it home, and ripped its guts out, leaving the motors. It wasn't until today that I saw fritsl's Toy Challenge. Four year old challenge accepted :)
I had not thrown the cover out yet, so I put it back on to show you guys the car. I don't know if you can tell by looking at the picture, but the front wheels are free rolling and have a motor to angle them left and right. The back wheels are the ones with the motor that drives the car forwards/backwards. There is also a space underneath for 2 AA batteries. It currently measures 7.5" x 5" x 4", but that is likely to change.
I am waiting for my robot brains and eyes to arrive in the mail so I can get started and post up something in the robots page.
Here are some pictures of the before and after of the car. I kept the picture of the receiver board in the attachment section to maintain its dimensions.
