ya just take the circut out of the toy

and hack it........

you would need to run wires from the output of the receiver ( before the motor driver transistors are connected)
Search google and also Robot Builders Bonanza has info on it , as well as other info on robots ( i recommend that book)
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Use a multimeter on the circuit, and see what changes when you send commands. A wire that changes voltage can be used for anything . . .
