Custom made rc car to hold an air cannon, help? Answered

Hello, Me and my friends are working on this project, where we have to build a moving base for our contraption. Can you please tell us a little more about building a car of this sort, and how long it would take. We are a little short on time, and we are running out of ideas. We are really desperate right now so please help. Please reply to us at: ahish94@gmail.com Thanks a bunch, Ahish

This was a fairly simple project, but took a long time. http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/showthread.php?p=831931#post831931

It was, however, built for racing. You could build something more simple. You could use 2 wheelchair motors on the front of a T shaped base. On the end of the T is a castor, and each of the motors is connected to a small wheel on the front of the T. you have a car battery, and 2 switches on the end of a pair of 100ft cables. Connect it up so that each switch turns on each motor separately. Press both to go forwards, and one to turn left and one to turn right.

Hope this helps :)
