Some uses for this? (click to see the pics)

hey, well the other day I took a part an air bed and find the "motor" that sucks air in, and now I want to give it another use, but I dont know what to do with it, any ideas?
I was thinking to make a r/c vehicle or something but I dont know if this is possible, someone please?
any ideas?
any help?

Put the fan back on it and use it as a vacuum.

.  Unless you have the space and carrying capacity for batteries and an inverter, an AC motor is not a good answer to any R/C question.
.  Are there any markings on the motor that might indicate horsepower, RPM, amps, &c? Manufacturer's model number that you can Google?
.  PS: I _think_ the black plastic and brass piece between the power wires is a thermal cutout.

You got an AC motor out of something?
RC vehicle isn't a good ides, putting the fan back on it may be,

I have a robot that climbs smooth surfaces - It comprises a suction pump and suckers on the feet.
