1) What is the difference between AC/DC and how does it matter in R/C cars ?

2) what are the components on the the R/C circuit of a R/C car?

3) Difference between series/parrallel circuit, and how do they matter in R/C cars?

4) What detemines the speed of the car ?

How an electric DC motor works.

http://htw.wiley.com/htw/"

Select Chapter 9.5.
Scroll down to the links at the bottom of the webpage.
Got to the two links:
What Spins an Electric Motor
and
DC Motors​

in that order (use the back button on your browser or the Contents link at the bottom of the page to navigate back)

Feel free to post your questions here about these links.

Which means that the speed can be regulated by the supply voltage, but I would guess in real RC cars the speed is changed with a gearbox between the motor and the drive train.
