I've always wanted to build my own RC car, and here it is...

  This is my first instructable, be kind =3

**UPDATED**
Now my RC CAR has a proportional acceleration system, it works for backwards and forwards. See it on Step 5


The final result is here:

Step 1: Material list

You I'll need :
  - A structure (sorry, I didn't took any photos of me making it). Mine includes a steering bar in the front with 2 wheels and the car motor on the back with 1 wheel.
  - 2 hobby servos, one for steering (self explanatory) and one for acceleration (you'll see the magic very soon).
 - A micro switch.
 - 5V regulator for the receiver.
 - 3S 2200mAh LiPo
 - Instant glue  
 - Duct tape

You will also need creativity =]

Step 2: Fixing the structure

Since my car is 3 wheeled, its very unstable. I've glued a little wing on the bottom of the car as shown on the picture.

If you build the same way I did, you can either do this or lower the center gravity of your car by placing the battery on the bottom of the car.

Step 3: Putting things together

Its time to mount the battery in the car with the battery alarm and the 5v regulator .

*Note: 5v regulator circuit is 5th picture

1- tape the cables to the battery
2- plug the regulator and the alarm in the battery
3- Now, Tape the receiver (radio Rx) to the battery, don't forget to tape the antenna tube too

 It should look like the 3 picture.

 Now glue the steering servo in the right place. Since it's a steering system, the center of the servo arm should be placed on the same line that the front wheels are placed. You can also carve a little space on the servo arm so the steering bar pin can slide in it. This will happen mostly because the servo is not centered perfectly.

Simply you could toggle the Power to accelerate Power on to Accelerate and Power off to Deaccelerate. and you could have used a embodyment
