Introduction: R/C Car Remote Detonator

About: A mechanical engineering graduate from JBU, I enjoy putting motors on things that don't already have them, tinkering with small gas engines, airsoft, paintball, and pyrotechnics. I am no longer active on this …

this is a really cool remote detonater that utilizes an R/C car. I haven't yet desighned an igniter to go with it, but im sure you can find one on this site, but it does work wiht a modded model rocket igniter. also i need to be sure to give somebody else credit for this because i think i saw it somewere else on this site but im not sure were. im also sorry about the bad pics, but its the best i could do cuz i already built it.

Step 1: Take Apart the R/C Car

i think this is really self explanatory. take the thing apart. on mine i was able to strip it right down to the circut board box, but if you cant i would recomend cutting it. after you get it pretty much stripped you should (at least mine did) come to to the cassi and the circut box, which just popped right out. but be sure if you cut it to make sure that the battery compartment is not destroyed. THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT SHOULD BE CONNECTED TO THE CIRCUT BOX OR IT WILL NOT WORK!!!!

Step 2: Cut and Splice the Wires

the next step is to cut and splice the wires. be sure to cut the wires leading to the back motor, the one that drives the car, because this one gets more electriccity as it is a more powerfull motor. then just strip the ends and splice them to aligator clips.
NOTE: i just cut my aligator clips of a rocket laucher thingy, thats why theres the extra wire. i also cut my wire a little short. i would not recomend doing that.

Step 3: Fix the Antenna

next is to cover the thing in some kind of camo. i used black duct tape. and then take a straw and run part of the antenna through it and coil the rest on top of the box, then duct tape it to the side. this is so that if you have to cover it in leaves, the antenna will still stick up.

Step 4: Now Youre Done

just connect the battery and youre ready to go! note i used a 6 volt battery. i think it has to be at least a 6 volt, or 4 double A's, and it helps if theyr'e rechargable.
