Science Project

Hi guys!

My classmates and I would have a science project to complete.
We need to build an R/C car from scratch.
What parts would we need?

It would need to be onroad, 1/10 scale, probably brushless, and 2wd.
Will 2wd brushless be efficient and be able to maintain control.
Will probably use a cheap 2.4 GHz from Hobbyking.

Thanks in advance.

What do you mean from scratch? Do you have to fabricate all the suspension parts as well, or just assemble pieces readily available?

Assemble pieces from my LHS. I have no idea how to create and mold every part, so I'm thinking buying parts from my LHS would probably save A LOT more time and money.

Piecing a car together like that will cost a lot more than a kit.

If it's onroad, a pan car is your best bet. You can make a chassis from flat fiberglass or carbon fiber sheets, and get some very simple front and rear end parts.
