Not enough information

There's no schematic or software code. There is not enough information for someone else to duplicate what you did. However, it does appear that the article is intended to be general and not specific.

Tell us some things you did to ruggedize the car.  Is the Arduino spring suspended?

good use of electronics

Now that's a good use for electronics.  Actually many new cars are "hopped up", as we usd to say, by changing out the computer chip that controls the engine management system (EMS) rather that doing something mechanical, like replacing the carbeurator. 

From the article it is interesting to note that even with toy cars the manufacturer puts limits on performance.
