Hi All,

I just purchased a green dune racer for my son, Hudson. He has Cerebral Palsy. I am going to make it RC capable since Hudson can't steer and do the gas pedal. My first question is about the ESC. Is the mamba max necessary? It costs more than the dune racer. Is there another option for the ESC?

Also, right now I plan to get the firgelli feedback actuator. It is expensive too but from the reviews it seems worth it. Should I get the 2, 4 or 6 stroke? Also should I use an Arduino lhttps://www.firgelliauto.com/products/ ... controller to control it or the LAC Board https://www.actuonix.com/LAC-Board-p/lac.htm from Actuonix.

I am new to all of this so any help or suggestions would be great. I would especially love to see pics and instructions of a another dune racer that has been modified for RC, special needs, wheels and/or batteries too. Thanks!

Great you have the determination to take this on. I went to the sites you pasted and read the specs for the components they sell. I don't have much knowledge on the newer cars that have RC control for this, but I'd read in the RC threads at this site and see what ideas these give you. I wrote a big paragraph earlier on this thread, and wouldn't you know it, power flashed off and my reply was wiped-out!
