I almost finished my first robot and the only thing that stands between me and my mechanical masterpiece is modifying my HS-311 servos. The problem is I've looked at two tutorials and what they say doesn't match!! The first is Admin's http://www.societyofrobots.com/actuators_modifyservo.shtml  The second is this one http://www.seattlerobotics.org/guide/servohack.html My problem is that the second one says to replace the potentiometer with resistors and the first one mentions something about it but doesn't tell you how do you have to replace the potentiometer. Which one should I follow?

I think I'll go with Admin's one. Its less complicated.

sorry for bringing back an old topic, but i found this tut (somewhere on a thread on this site) on modding an hs-311 very easy to follow (because of the pictures):
