Hi,

I am making a PC controlled car and as of now am able to control a single motor through parallel ports.
I am having following doubts :

1. How many motors can we control using a L293D ?
2. How do u go about gears and shafts ? In some of the earlier posts someone had suggested to go for toy cars ... Is that the normal practise ?

Regards,
