Thanks for the quick reply

You can modify them to be continuous though , it is fairly simple.

#5  

Unscrew the case , find the big pin on the main gear. Use a dremel to cut it off smooth to the gear. Put the top of the servo back together. Then the next step involves soldering a resistor in the bottom...

Ok, I have the pin removed. Where/how do I solder the resistor?

Here is one way which turns a servo into a gear motor but then must be powered by an h bridge....

This is the most common version of a servo mod and it utilizes the original controller to power the servo without an external h bridge like the first mod i showed you.

Lastly there is a version where the potentiometer in the servo shaft is cut , then you position the pot into the dead center known as dead band and glue it in place.

Also, you can be modified continues servos directly from Servocity.com. I highly recommend them as one of the best places to get a nice mix of servos ar decent prices and always in stock.
