Question First time building something RC (Help!)

I am planing on building an RC Go Kart. I have two motors and a battery that can suply both with enough power. I wanted to make the kart turn by making the motors spin in opposite directions. Can I achieve this If I connect 2 esc's to one RC reciever and have the spins be controlled by an arduino?

if you mean tank type steering yes
I once made a tracked tank like steering RC With 2 motors 2 ESC's, and used a airplane controller with one motor hooked to each stick.
if you are connecting it to a arduino unless one of the ESC's are supplying power disconnect the voltage wire from the ESCs by popping the power wire out of the connectorand put some electrical tape around it.
