My Lego RC Car

My son and I are new to the world of RC. For fun, we just completed construction of an RC car using Lego as the platform. As a disclaimer, it has lots of room for improvement (we were somewhat limited by the parts we had on hand), but it sure has been fun! For details, check out my blog post here: http://www.tougas.net/lego_rc_car

Cool little project - nice, reasonable speed like you said. We await the next version - off road stadium truck with full suspension and a bigger poweplant!

I imagine if you built the basic frame solid enough, you could make break away lego panels and make a couple demo derby cars

Actually, it can go a lot faster than is possible to control in the house so perhaps a little lower gearing could give it a lot more power with the same motor.

I definitely think full suspension would be nice, gotta get some more lego sets to find the right parts for that!
