Default Need some tech advice with no name brand stuff.

I posted this earlier on a different thread but was told Id get better results. Its a ong read but if you can help with ANY question PLEASE respond.

Not name brand stuff, but need tech advice. (post # 1)

Well... after getting flamed on a couple other forums Im hoping theres someone here that can seriously help.. I am not looking for advice on a " real " car because I dont want one... I want to make due with what I got for now.... eventually a 7ch radio and custom chassis in 1/10 but right now Im on a little to no budget.

I purchased a couple 1/12 R/C Lowriders from Radio Shack for $18.00 each.... Couldnt really pass up the deal seing as there $70 off sale, and have an r/c itch from time to time and these are helping...

So far Ive modded the rear end with a tie rod so it drops and drags on the floor, and made the three wheel almost unlimited...

My problem is I want to hop the front as well... I figured Ill just have a switch from the servo going to my hopping motor to turn off stearing but hop....

Kind of a pain but I only have 3 channels to play with after the gas/ stearing.... 1 for lifting the rear, and 2 for 3 wheel right or left (same motor shared on three wheel arm).

1. Is there a way I can combine channels for multy functions? If so, how?

2. Im wanting to change a couple buttons in my remote as well but need help identifying the switch.... Ill get pics if someone thinks they can help...

3.Does anyone know about resistors by chance? I know Ill need one on my hopping motor so I dont burn out the main board.

Im looking at some sites right now on some basic electronics so maybe Ill get this part solved myself.... Im still not sure how to test or what to test... Ive got a DMM but Ive been in car audio for the past 3 years, and dont remember what the other settings do.

4. I need a servo to spin a full rotation one way. Im just skipping the electronics in it and hooking the motor direct. I know there not made but Im pretty sure they can be modded. Anyone know of some servo brands that I might use?

There should be a stop pin on the main servo gear I belive, that when removed should let the servo spin 360 degrees.

If you want to see what Im using for insperation, look at these http://www.e-zone.nl/jevries/

files named b64xxx are a 1/10 hopper.

Heres pics of what Im with right now...

I can get pics of any part needed if it could help.

Thank you guys!
