I don't know a single thing about linux and debian; so far I've installed xubuntu on virtualbox and the terminal told me I do forbidden things.
But enough talking about me: my parents' dishwasher caught on fire, twice: they decided to change it, so I had fun dismantelling it. Now I have an electric motor shaped as a metallic "U" with two cooper coils on each side (its name is askoll m 96 3 and there's written "220-230Vac 50hz 0.50A 60W" on its label); an immaculate selco circuit diagram and three fans (from old dvd players).
Now, my question is: can I build a sturdy, cheap and yet fun to play with 4wd rc car out of these components? I've also made a drawing of it (it's a bit terrible) and I would like to use a raspberry pi model A to make everything work together.
I'll use a vcr case for the floor, for the axles, shaft and gears I'll find something at a hardware shop; for the suspensions and wheels I've no idea... I think I'll need a switch, too.
Will I need a driver to make the diagram work? How many batteries will I need?
Is it really worth it?
