Heres the simplest way to do it if you actualy plan on building your car.
step #1-
Find all the parts that are standardized off other cars. You aren't going to re-invent a belt and pully or shocks so figure out what you want and use that.
step #2-
pick out a good 3d cad program and put the objects your using in cad w/ the apropiate measurements taken so that the car will assemble well.
step #3-
The main pieces that need to be ultra precise should have adjustable mounting locations so that you can make sure everything lines up right such as the distance from a front diff to a rear diff if your making a 4wd car similar to that of nitro engines.
step #4-
keep in mind that your going to have to have these parts built, the simpler the parts the easier it will be for you to have it built in a machine shop.
step #5-
There is know way to know how it is going to truly perform with everything in it so build it to be adjustable.
