Improve Elegoo Arduino Smart Car Robot KIT 2.0: Swap the Motor Control Wires to use Infrared Remote

A while ago the great folks at Elegoo sent me a beautiful Robot Kit Version 1.0.
I already posted Assembly Instructions, and some tutorials on programming it.
Since then Elegoo introduced a newer and simpler to assemble 2.0 version, and the Elegoo folks sent me this really beautiful Smart Car Robot KIT Version 2.0 donated for the Visuino development.

I already posted:

Unboxing video
Step 1: Assembling the Motors.
Step 2: Installing the Motors on the Chassis
Step 3: Installing the Motor Driver Board
Step 4: Installing the Line Following Sensors
Step 5: Installing the Arduino Board and the Sensors Shield
Step 6: Installing  the Infrared Remote Receiver Module

Step 7: Installing the Battery Box on the Chassis
Step 8: Installing the Servo turning the Ultrasonic Ranger
Step 9: Assemble the Ultrasonic Ranger
Step 10: Installing the Ultrasonic Ranger on the Servo
Step 11: Installing the Standoffs/Spacers on the Chassis
Step 12: Start Connecting The Cables between the sensors, and the boards
Step 13: Join the 2 layers of the Chassis together, and connect the rest of the cables
Step 14: Installing the Wheels
Step 15: Installing the Batteries
Step 16: Installing the HC-06 Bluetooth Module
Step 17: Tidy Up The Cables
Step 18: Center The Servo

I posted all the assembly instructions. The robot however has a small design problem that was fixed in Version 3 of the KIT. When using the Infrared Remote Receiver, the speed of one side of the motors can't be controlled.
There is however very easy fix for this that can be made in less than a minute, and here I am posting video on how to do it yourself - Swap the Motor Control Wires to use Infrared Remote :

I have also posted tutorials for assembling the even better Version 3 of the robot, and soon will be posting some more tutorials for all the versions, so stay tuned ;-)
