Hi, this is my first instructable so please be kind on the comments, any constructive criticism is very welcome!
When i saw the robot competition i was inspired and i decided to modify an old remote-controlled car i had, this instructable shows my process and what i added to the car.
Again this is my FIRST instructable :)

Step 1: Paint Job

1- i flipped the car over in order to access the screws, which i then loosened using a very small screwdriver.
2- I then removed the car body from the chassis
3- Then i used red electrical tape to cover the car's body
4- I also made sure that i didn't cover up any holes
5- again using the small screwdriver i re-attached the car's body.
why we need to open and join again i think this is cheating like because car is already ready but you instructed that to open and join it.
I was just wondering what type of car that is?
Maybe use something like this:<br>http://www.instructables.com/id/AIRSOFT_GRENADE_with_pull_pin/<br><br>Use a string to connect to the ring. add enough string so that your car can reach full speed and quickly drive away pulling the ring and, well you know the rest. :)
wow. the fireworks in london are HUGE! I live in the USA and I have never seen a firework that big!
Its a small car
Are you French, dude?? ('cause I noticed that the firecracker is a french brand that I always use).<br />
well you could have a strike anywhere match attatched to the car and use skills to light it<br />
ji have a car like that its awesome also sweet instructable
i want firecrackers NOT FAIR
why not use a pencil sharpener<br /> <br /> and<br /> <br /> WHATS THE POINT OF PUTTING SPIKES ON THE CAR?<br /> there not on very neat
What type of firecracker was that
Oh i bought it in France, i think its called "Le petard du bison"
odd name
yea lol
it actually means OMG RUN AWAY OR UR SCREWD! LOL
haha i have a black car like that :D i now have a project whoo lol :DD p.s. those spikes..brilliant :D
lol thanks
whats the point of the spikes?
I was a noob..
I would add some sort of spark mechanism. maybe buy a car with headlights, then use the wires to the headlights and somehow amp it up or use a relay to make a spark from the headlights. then put the fuse of the firecracker right in the electrodes and light it if need be.
me and my firends did something similar to this, we modded rc cars and battled, i had a frontloader and i made a flamethrower on it by putting a can of WD-40 upside down above thte thing that the front lifts up and it would hit the sprayer and it would spray on a stick with lit napalm gel on it and it was pretty tight
Hmmmm.... I wanna build a battle bot now...
haha. wen i saw u said bomb deployer. i though u meant those tiny little mothers. but then i scrolled down. n WOW, that thing was BIG. then i rembered that the car was tiny and so was the firecracker. haha
the fire cracker is actually quite big !
Lol! I really thought for a sec that you were going to set off a fire cracker in your house!
So did I!
same here....
hahaha lol
You could, theoretically and with heavy modification, turn the spikes into a rail for a model rocket engine. The engine could be ignited with a small electrical spark triggered by the remote control (you would probably have to sacrifice a feature of the car, such as turning the front wheels). The major downside to this would probably be the high probability of completely burning down your car and/or house/neighbor's house.
idea for weapon: top mounted tassssseeeeeerrrrrr........ Fun. Evil. But fun.
lol :D
evil brother+Remote car with firecracker= TOTAL PAYBACK!!!!!!!!<br/>
lol :D
You shoud make a match with the fuse attached to the top of the match, then tape the match down to the car, and make the match stricker on the wheel so when you move it lights the match which light the fuse, which causes big pyro explosion. YAY!
It's not a robot, you just added on two sharp sticks and painted a red thing.
thank you we have had that discussion below
ow my big toe, lol
hey i never said this was an "awesome robot" or "death machine" and yea i did just stick some pointy bits on and paint it but this project was just for me to learn how to make an instructable, it wasn't supposed to amaze anyone or even compete in the robots competition, i entered it so that people could give me some good instructable making advice. struckbyanarrow you are clearly not impressed by the project but it would be useful if you gave me some tips on making the instructable instead of taking the piss out of the crappy RC car and pointy things.
i really never said the instructables was bad at all it just isnt you making a robot its you modifying a robot it has pics and all im just trying to say in other words... why is it in the contest?
also if you want to impress me add more pyrotechnics's but the m80 was pretty sweet.
lol ok sorry for the misunderstanding , we cool
ya sure, sounds good
What kind of controls do you have for that car? Is it just speed and left-right? And what are the extra little wheels for - is this one of those cars that can flip over and right itself?
yea just forward + back and to turn the front wheels spin around, yea the little wheels make sure the car doesn't fall over and when it does its east to get back of 4 wheels.
when i was younger i saw Bruce lee with sharp chopsticks that he threw so i took my own chop sticks and put them in a pencil sharpener
Well implemented I guess, this has been done before, that's all. How about something to light and deliver an M80 to a target, then escape before blowing up. Now that would be cool. Plus if it fails you still get to see explosions, always fun.
hahaha just had a brain-wave and i placed a firecracker on top of the spikes on the RC car i made , they act as guide rails so the small car can deliver the explosive then with a sudden stop the firecracker slides off and the Rc car makes a quick getaway!!
