Introduction: My Own Unimog

Here i built a toy that is simmular to a unimog. it is a toy car called a "Grave Digger" that i put a small electric motor onboard. This is my first instructable, so please be honest what you think of it. sorry that the pictures are of the final progect. i told myself that i would post this one, but i started without bringing my camera. also... forgive the picture quality, it is a 2 year old 50 dollar wal-mart camera.

Step 1: Materials

you will need a toy car, motor and a battery pack

Step 2: Motor...

get a toy car, remove the cover, and attach a motor. if you want to tape it, its ok. i have no picture of this step.

Step 3: Soldering

solder the wires to the motor, and to the switch, solder the wires to the battery, bad idea but... or tape them.

Step 4: Battery

Tape the battery on the car and you are ready to roll, mine can climb objects that are 2 inches high. below are some pics of the finished project.

Step 5: A Track I Made

Below is a track i made for mine

Step 6: An Idea

I Have a sega point master joystick that i dont need, but i dont know how i would plug it up to the car to make it go foreward and backward on demand, i put some pics of it...

Step 7: A Random Question

Thank you to the ones that responded to the question about the RAM. Does anyone know a good way to test if a computer mother board and a CPU are good? if yes can you please post something about that. thank you.
