This is the best Power Functions Remote Control Dune Buggy. It can go over most terrains that a normal RC car could go over and it has no problems with going up ramps. Even better, it can go very fast on full powered batteries. Also it can do amazing stunts and is fully capable of doing a 360 turn on the spot - It is brilliant at steering at speed as well. Personally I would rate this as the best Lego RC car that I have made.
About this creation
This power functions RC dune buggy can go over various terrains at high speed. Also it can do stunts by using the classic style controller (not the new speed controller) and it can do speedy 360 turns on the spot with it's repelling wheels turning different directions like a tank. This is possibly my best creation so far however I feel that I should not bother with instructions as it is a fairly simple mechanism. If want to copy this creation, tell us if you want help and we will add instructions.
Here is a birds eye view of the RC car showing the battery pack and the receiver.
This is the view of the two XXL Lego motors from underneath the car. Each motor turns it's own wheel allowing the car to steer. The two motors allow a full 360 turn on the spot which is very helpful when doing stunts.
Here is another zoomed out picture of underneath the car. Between the two front wheels is the receiver sitting on top of the 6X4 black plate.
This is a picture of the left side of the car with one of the motors driving the big cog onto the small cog which turns the wheel. The result of a big cog on a small cog is speed, the output is a lot faster than the input.

This is also a picture of the receiver but from underneath the car.
Here is a picture of the car in motion going around 7 miles per hour/ 9 kilometers per hour on full battery.
