hi, i am very new to arduino and have little to no experience with this type of hardware

and was wonderin if i was to connect some motors to my arduino can I construct or buy somethin that would allow me to run power to the motors without running it through the arduino?

  (the electric moters i was planning to use come from a toy bulldozer and use 4 or maybe 6 D -ize batteries and i dont think i should pull that amount of current or power through the arduino circut)

any help would be appreciated

Relays and Transistors will isolate your Arduino from your motors.
The way you have it in your schematic isn't the same as how you have it wired up!

thanks, now to google those things
