Do you know how to solder? If so, then this is a piece of cake. You will have to disassemble the steering servo. The potentiometer is attached to 2 of the 4 wires running into the servo. You will have to unsolder the wires and resolder them back to the new PN pot. Then just reassemble the steering servo and voila, its good as new.

The only problem is that I dont remember the order of the cables, so I need to know in which order to solder them.

If I am not mistaken the Iwaver wires are a different color from the Kyosho setup. With the Kyosho boards you have the orange and green colored wires, with the green one connected to the center terminal and jumped to one side terminal. With the orange connected to the other terminal. I just remember you have two wires and three terminals, with one wire jumped on two of them.

Thank you guys for all your help. I am going to try it again this weekend to see if it works this time. The problem is that the Iwaver cables are the same color they are both green, so I guess Ill try see how it goes.
