Inexpensive RC cars usually have a one-chip radio.  There will be several pins on the chip driving the inputs to various transistor switches and H-bridges.  You can use the Arduino to drive those inputs instead.  If you pull out all the electronics you'll have to build H-bridges to replace the ones you removed.

I may have found a better solution: it's an embedded and wifi al-in-one module and it's open source www.openpicus.com, look at what it can do:
