Question: Would the interference from the plutonium keep the RC car from working?
Answer: Radiation wouldn't necessarily affect a remote control car. It would contaminate it, but beyond that the car would continue to work.
Question: What was given to Paul to make him talk?
Answer: Sodium Pentothal.
Answer: To further elaborate, sodium pentothal, AKA "truth serum" places the subject in a sedated state; the subject is then questioned while under its influence because it is supposedly very difficult (but not impossible) to lie while under its influence.

Jenny Anderman: This isn't funny. Do you know what this is like? It's like when you read about, I don't know, Anne Frank or something and you say to yourself, Jesus why didn't they do something. The whole world is collapsing. They just sat around, life as usual, maybe it'll go away, but it never goes away it only gets worse and nobody thinks about the future. What's the matter?Paul Stephens: Who's Anne Frank?
In an early scene, the high school science teacher produces a schematic diagram of the two nuclear bomb designs created by the Manhattan Project. He says, "Here are two designs based on plutonium." Actually, only the Fat Man bomb uses plutonium. The other, the Little Boy design, uses uranium.
After the six wires are cut to defuse the weapon, you can see the amount of time left on the clock is 07:16:45, which is the date of the first successful test of the Atomic Bomb.
