Lightbulb What should I do with my old AM board??

I was wondering if there is anything you can do with an old AM board. I was thinking of putting it in a smaller scale r/c car, but i'm not sure how difficult this would be. I also though ogf buildin gmy own chassis from scratch, but I'm not really sure how the servo motor and POT work together. SO have you done anything interesting with your old boards?

the AM board actually can apply almost for anything.
just add a small submicro servo (i use 9g just like on 250size heli), take the pcb off, then wire the pot and motor replacing the original.
then u're good to go.
i been using the AM board for replacing iwaver 05, xmods truck and my custom 1:28 crawler.
and they work juuust fine till today.
good luck.
If you're car is fast, sooo fast compared to other;
either you're a drag racer or just idiot.
drag racer only go straight.
idiots do the same, coz they can't steer!
