Thank you, Matthew for the clarification. I look forward to learning something from your software code. BTW, what is a "github"? I'm not familiar with all the new terminology.

Cadman-LT, I agree. That's a pretty cool car and the author is correct about it being fast. I'll be sharing the video and article with my ITT Tech Microprocessor and Microcontroller students.

I saw you have an XBee module in your model car.  Cool.  Design News contributor Jon Titus has a book, "The Hands On Xbee Lab Manual," that has a lot of good information about to how to use these small wireless devices beyond basic controls.  Excellent project and inspiring for fellow students and experimenters.  Nice job.
