I am trying to hack a cheap rc car, and I do not know what the connector in the picture is for/what cable is needed.
Please help

What had been connected to it?

If I had to guess, I'd say it's a power connector.

Does the car have a battery? If so, to what does the battery connect?

We would really need to see more of the board (the other side) and the rest of the car's components to give you a better answer.

Did you receive the car already taken apart? I'm trying to figure out why you wouldn't know what had been connected to the connector.

It wasn't connected to anything, the car uses aa batteries, I bought it new.

My guess is the connector was used to test the PCB and/or motors.

It can be hard to find the exact matching connector for things like that. I don't think you need to worry about it though. If you need to connect something, you can solder wires to the other side of the board.

Could I plug something into it and control the car via it?
