One Man’s Beater Car May Be Another’s DIY Project

The junkyard can be full of hidden treasures if you take the time to look. And YouTuber William Foster found himself an awesome DIY project. He picked up an old beater car and turned it into a full-sized RC car.

According to Popular Mechanics, he used a standard RC transmitter and receiver to control the car with a remote that’s connected to computers he mounted in the center console. He rigged up a way to depress the pedals and power the car with stepper motors. To steer, he used a chain and sprocket system that lets him control the car. It’s a pretty ingenious system!
