Running SLAM on a real robot is more about the sensors than the exact platform. The donkey car just has a single camera by default, I believe, so you might want to use ORB SLAM, or maybe make it a bit easier for yourself and print out some ArUco tags to put around the environment and use fiducial_slam.

If, instead, you want to use lidar or sonar or an IMU or some other sensor or some combination of sensors, there are a lot more systems and packages out there.
