The 'magic sauce' between the receiver and the motors is an ESC, electronic speed controller, which takes the low voltage/current from the receiver and provides the higher current to the motors.

The actual wiring depends on the specific ESCs and motors, so there's not much we can really tell you in general. There are also a LOT of RC-focused websites out there that will be much more tailored to what you're looking to do. We're happy to help, but we'll probably need some more information and probably some specific questions. It would probably be best for you to research how most RC cars are built/wired so you at least have a basic background of how it all works together.
