Control DC motor easy



I what to finally make my firs robot, but I have one problem:

I found for my base nice RC car. Its perfect and also have  power supply (6V 620mAh Ni-Cd ) with charger. Also servo in front. So its perfect, but it have very powerfull DC motor...

All my tests were with my 6V Ni-Cd battery.
