RC-Cars equipped with explosives?!

— Posted by OzzY on 3:57 pm on Feb. 9, 2002

well, i am sure this is possible and that ain’t the question here but what explosive could be used for this and does anyone have plans/blueprints on this?!

— Posted by ilovekayla on 7:34 pm on Feb. 9, 2002

well what do you want to do to the car?

exactly what i was thinking..

ODG….well i spose it’s not the lamest thing thats been posted here so i’ll give it a thought or two, well ive seen a RC car that had a metal rod sticking out the front of it, say about 2 or so inches and if you ram the car into anything solid the bar will be pushed inside the car and detonate the explosives, it probably hits some sorta button inside the car, which inturn electrically sets off the explosives, i guess that’d be the way to go, i doubt it’d be too hard to do with a lil bit of technical know-how another way might be to make an RC bomb and tape it to an RC car but make sure the two rc units dont have the same frequency, and then all you do is drive up to whatever you dont like and then switch controllers and play around with the buttons until it detonates the explosives, one last way would possibly be too get an RC car with a horn, i’ve seen them b4 and basically it’s a normal RC car but with a small button on the controller that when pressed makes the horn in the car go off, i dont know if the current or whatever that goes into the horn when it’s on is enough to set off an electrical ignition system, but if it was enough that’d be the easiest way to do it.

whats the reason for doing this , because RC-Cars usually dont have a huge range on them , and if your going to go through with this its going to require alot of fucking around. think of some other options for blowing “x” up

— Posted by OzzY on 1:11 pm on Feb. 10, 2002

well.. you don’t take everyones attention if you drive around with an rc car, ie in a city and if you have awide range and the car get’s down on the road at a crossing or something similar i think nearly NOONE will care and when you ignit it (rc for sure, the stick-idea just sucks ass BADLY!) and throw away the rc-unit or give it a kid or anything you shouldn’t be found anyway!

— Posted by largeidaccam on 10:03 pm on Feb. 12, 2002

yeah but i doubt that even if the RC had a big range on it thered still be obsticals in the way ie peoples feet, a stick so youd have to stay close to it to you could see what ahead of it unless you wanted to attach a camera to it ?? if would require even more fucking around an probly take up too much room on the RC leaving less room for your explosive an making it too heavy which could either make it crash alot which you dont want if youve got an explosive on it or make it go at a really slow pace

— Posted by MrDingelFritz on 10:17 pm on Feb. 12, 2002

i think it is a good idea but ehen you have a camera on your still gonna have to be close enless you got a radio station to move it because it deals with that thingy uh um well you no what i am talking a bout oh well im jus a newbie but who knows

— Posted by largeidaccam on 10:19 pm on Feb. 12, 2002

yeah good point

— Posted by The Great Milenko on 6:54 am on Feb. 13, 2002

it’d be good to commandeer a radio station or have some super transmitter and then mount on of those tiny wireless cams on the RC car, then you could drive to like the other side of the city and then take out your target! :biggrin:

unless your talking about those cheap r/c cars you get at WAL-MART than…real racing r/c cars have a very wide range on them. but if your relaly waant to screw up someones car/truck then make your bomb (i’m not good with the bomb making part) and place it as close to the survo as you can, this is kind of hard to explain on here but just do it…BTW, if you possibly can, take off the body of this persons car and where you see the batteries, there will be some soft foam outlining the holder for the batteries. tear all that chit outta there. the chasse is usually made of titanium or something similiar. it reacts when the batteries touch it causing sparks if incase this could help detonate your bomb better. but dont jump on my case with this post because i was only trying to help.

oops, i ment to say graphite instead of titanium. also the part about the batteries sparking. it also makes them blow up so you kind of f*cked him in several ways. this crap costs a shit load of money

I’ve never seen anyone driving rc cars in cities, so it would be kinda suspicious wouldn’t it? Anyway if I were you I’d dismantle the car, take the thing that sends the electrical signel to whatever, plant it on the explosive, and there you go, radio detonated explosive. (If the explosive can be detonated by electrical signel).

— Posted by Chaffin on 4:09 pm on April 4, 2002

thats a good ide but it doesnt work like that, and people race them in the cities..it’s a hella lot of fun. but anyways. theres a crystal that goes in the radio (controler) and one that goes into the car. but if its not in the proper place it wont even turn on. well, it may turn on but it will drive off by itself hitting everything in it’s path, lol…but if you wanna have some fun then heres what oyu can do. if you have a radio or a friend that is nice enough to let you borrow his than take it and hopfully you can find the sme channel that the crystal is on. and when that person is racing or whatever, just turn on your radio and you can drive

That sounds like fun. How do you control it though?

— Posted by yourunforgivenII on 12:27 am on April 5, 2002

well you could get a controller like on battlebots and get an extra button to detonate it… check the archives for remote detonators…..

— Posted by yourunforgivenII on 12:30 am on April 5, 2002

or strap c4 to the bottom with a 5 inute timer and dirve the car in the place and run like hell

— Posted by The Anarchist on 1:42 am on April 5, 2002

cant you just put a co2 bomb or another kind of bomb that requires you to light it your self and use the rc car to put it your desired location so no one knows where the hell it came from or who did it.just put a fuxe that matches the length for the time it will take to get the thing over there.Of course this wouldnt work for long distances but it would work.like making it og across the street or down the road.no one would have a clue it was you.

I attached 4 m-1000 ‘s to my rc car using candles as fuses and drove it into my neighbors garaje. They called the cops but i never got caught

— Posted by paladinpress on 4:00 pm on April 5, 2002

I have never attached a bomb to a R/C Car but the I watch my a friends kids sometimes and the boy Neil have one and we take this long pipe we epoxyied the end and we drop in bottle rockets and drive it around like it a SAM Launcher pretty fun, but I will use my new spuerglue super slow fuse burn method so we can take the Car farther.         Hey we taped to aluminum pipe on middle before and drilled a tiny hole place a skyrocket in side it and held it through with a nail , it was a fun way to keep using it when we run out of gas,  My question is has any one ever REALLY made a full time rocket power R/C car if so can they post there findings/Details   Thanks   J.

— Posted by Chaffin on 4:13 pm on April 5, 2002

hmm, ive never herd of m-1000’s. i was talking about the kind you race and it sounds like yall are talking about the toy ones so thats cool. otherwise thats a lot of money down the drain.

In WA State the reaservation up by Rochester sells them for $35 a pop damn things are loud, went to the beach last 4th and buried one in the sand before I lit it blew a 1′ sphere crater and made about 4* the noise of a 100 they were about as long as my hand a little thicker then a toitle paper roll. Me and Joey found that if we took copper wire {When I get boerd I strip form my 100′ roll of audio wire} and wrapped it around themabout four times and added epoxy to the ends finished it up with enough duct tape to build a house, the shock wave was so intense it felt like a punch to the chest standing 100 meters away

Ok, i dunno if ne one thought of this allready but this is my idea, get a gas powered rc car, modify the gas tank to be like 5 times the size of a regular size rc tank, then sum how rig up a gas grill starter ( u know the ones on potato guns) to the gas tank and have the button be on the outside (so when u ram it in to sumthin it will generate a spark and ignite the gas) then you get ne kind of exploseves and strap then near the gass tank the end result will be u ramming the car into a wall ur sumthing, the ignitor igniting the gas, the gas creathing a small size fire with ignites the explosize that you have starpped near the gas tank. PLEASE EXCUSE MY SPELLING, I TYPED THIS FAST WITH 2 BROKEN FINGERS

— Posted by paladinpress on 9:47 pm on April 5, 2002

Pyro you mean Pezo electric, that is a funny idea fully stealable land missile cost what a mear $300,
My spin is same as your’s but no gas tank,or tape on a gas tank and have HE hooked to it to . But the main part is use those cheap$20 one they got at radioshack
