Introduction: Radio Control Fighting Cars!

About: We are a small UK hack/makerspace. Wide and wild variations in interests. This is our official account. Open nights on Wednesdays. See @fzzpop, or…

With a bit of Sugru, a few balloons and some kitchen knives, you too can enjoy the thrill of having your cheap radio controlled cars fight. To the death!

Step 1: The Build

Inflate a balloon about half way then duct tape the neck to the car.
Take your balloon wearing RC cars and use some Sugru to bond a knife (or knives!) to the vehicles. (Sugru is great as it is tough and gap filling, & despite the strong adhesion you can remove it again)

You can see where this is going? Good stuff! If not, watch the video "Mk1 rc fight club" on YouTube:

Step 2: Orange Wins!
