I trying to do the same thing your doing. The only difference is that I am building a tank (like a military tank).

I think this is better because you don't have to deal with the steering mechanisms that you would have building a conventional car. If your gonna build the circuitry from scratch, I gaurantee your gonna need to be able to program your own custom PIC's!!!

note:you should post these questions in the robotics section.

A stepper motor isn't a good choice, use a simple remote control servo, it's small, cheap, light, powerful, and designed for that exact purpose. For that matter, why not simply use a complete remote control system as used in RC cars?.
