Sorry, afraid not..
A true ram jets can't work at all when the air flow is under Mach 1 - below that speed, it's just a glorified blowtorch, which won't provide any trust.
"Low speed ram jet" is a total misnomer. Unless that RC car is impossibly fast, this won't be able to provide thrust.
If you really want a subsonic jet engine with a minimum of moving parts, a valveless pulse jet is the best bet.
i agree completely. this is just a fun project to screw around with till i get materials for my valveless pulsejet working.
