We do have 4 channel USB & RS232 based relay boards that can be very easily controlled by simple software in any language like VB or C#.

If you have RC car that you want to control, just use outputs of relay board to have parallel connections to remote handset. That is all ! You can control your RC car from your PC very easily. You can have them here at http://iknowvations.in/store/u452-usb-relay-board  or at http://iknowvations.in/r242-rs232-relay-board.

Of course yes. There are thousands of MCU chips more powerful than Arduino out there & everyday more & more adding to this list but people refrain from using them as they are more complex & are having higher learning curve.

Find a circuit that will allow you to "push the buttons" on the car remote from the PC. An Arduino and its USB interface seems like the way to do it to me .
