This way was not very practical or not so "green" at all.
So I decided to design a 3D printed motor housing (See details in Step1) that is generic to all of my Lego car designs (details in Step 1).
This instructable, R/C Lego Car Redux, shows you how to use the 3D printed motor housing with my very first built R/C Lego Car.
Most of the parts from my original R/C Lego Car were still in used in this version. There were also some new Lego parts added, but only a few.
Eventhough this instructable is a "Redux" of the R/C Lego Car, I am going to show you how to build this car step by step from scratch, just like we tear the model apart and rebuild it again.
One good thing, neither the programming the Arduino, nor the UI to control the car in Processing needed to be changed.
Note: See more photos of "Redux" version of R/C Lego Car and video in Step 12.
