Walkie talkies just work wrong, but the RF Link stuff on that page would be good for some kind of R/C system.

Yes, they both run on radio waves. The only problem is that they won't be set to the same exact frequency, and the walkie talkie won't be putting out signals that the car can understand. The walkie talkie may cause the car to make some jerky movements or similar, but no, a walkie talkie will not control a RC car without some major adjustments.

i meant something more along the lines of wiring the walkie into a decoder, which would in turn trigger a relay to close circuit(s) on the cars pcb and drive it that way. so one walkie would be hooked up to the car, and maybe the other one could be hooked to a computer, so that it would simply send out a stream of data (driving commands)?
