This project from Ultra Geek Dad converts a broken toy into a fully-functioning remote controlled power wheels car:
It all started when I found a “Power wheels” style toy at a thrift shop for $20. As you can see I’m a little excited about it.
It wasn’t working when I bought it as there were wiring issues and a bad battery. This wasn’t too much of a concern to me because I planned to overhaul it anyways.
It also started out as an Audi; being a BMW guy I figured I would change that too.
I ended up implementing the following features; I have some more things in mind, but it was just nice to get it working.
