YouTuber Tomary turned a Golf into a remote-controlled car and tested it on the Salzburgring.

The video is well received by his fans. 

For the vast majority of people, a car is just a means of transportation that gets them from A to B.

But there are also those who have the craziest ideas about what else could be done with the car.

For example, how about a six-wheeled Rolls-Royce or a Nissan 300ZX transformed into a Ferrari?

Can't get any crazier?

It works: The German YouTuber Tomary has transformed a Golf V into a remote-controlled car.

Well, the idea is not entirely original.

As early as 2005, James May and Richard Hammond fought a duel with real, but remote-controlled cars in the British car show Top Gear.

And Tomary also wants to end up on the racetrack with the VW Golf Variant.

The YouTuber Tomary only steered the Golf on the Salzburgring with a remote control.

In order for this to work, the station wagon must first be converted accordingly.

It also needs a programmable remote control and motors for gas, brakes and steering.

For the latter, Tomary has mounted an electric motor on a board that is attached to the driver's seat.

This is connected to a belt pulley mounted on a wooden plate in the steering wheel via a toothed belt.

The apparatus for gas and brakes is similarly interesting.

Since there was no way to attach the servos inside, the YouTuber again uses a wooden board.

He weighs it down with an anvil to keep it from slipping.

Then it's off to the Salzburgring with the remote-controlled Golf.

A weakness in the construction is immediately evident there, because the brakes do not work optimally.

After a few adjustments, however, this problem is also solved and Tomary can steer the VW Golf over the racetrack and clearly has fun doing it.

"That's too cool," says the YouTuber.

"It's the weirdest feeling ever." According to Tomary, it's "like taking your car for a walk."

After he has groped his way around the steering a bit, he becomes more and more courageous.

He steers the remote-controlled Golf over the Salzburgring at up to 50 km/h.

He doesn't get the ideal line, but despite a few rides in the grass, Tomary remains accident-free.

"I'm shaking all over," emphasizes the YouTuber.

And his fans are also impressed in the comments:

  • "Mega project!

    Incidentally, you can set characteristic curves on the transmitter and thus influence the sensitivity.”

  • “Really mega, what kind of projects you are working on.

    Please keep it up!”

  • "It's amazing what you did again.

    Respect!"

  • "Very cool idea!

    And also implemented very strongly!“

  • "You are living the dream of many men and women!"
