You will learn how I converted an RC car from my childhood days to an Arduino-based RC car.

Story
A few days back, I found out a beautiful RC car from my childhood days but its remote was broken so I thought that why not convert this car into a High Speed Arduino RC car.

So here it is now, I have converted it into a High Speed Arduino RC car and today I am going to share with you that how I did that. The app I have used for this project can be downloaded from here.

Also do suggest me in the comment section that which things you want me to add in this car for future.

Functions of High Speed Arduino RC car
The functions this High Speed Arduino RC car are as following

- Front lights
- Back lights
- RGB light in center will make it look good
- Horn
- Rotation in all directions
- Speed control

Required Components
The components required for High Speed Arduino RC car are as follows

- Old Car with Motors
- Arduino Uno
- HC-05 or HC-06 Bluetooth Module
- L298N Motor driver
- Buzzer
- RGB LED
- 2 X Red LED’s
- 2 X White LED’s
- 2 X Rechargeable cells of 3.7V
- 9V battery
- 7 X 220 ohm resistors

Hardware
I have used two rechargeable cells of 3.7V each to run these motors. These cells can be used again and again and also will run the motors fast.
