Here we have Boxxy, my SHR. I had originally intended to give it a nice plexi-glass chassis; however, I chose instead to use an old cellphone box. There's something beautiful about being able to crank out a custom chassis in a matter of minutes only using scissors and a stapler :). At first, I had used the set of gear motors which came with the kit, but later swapped them for a set of modded servos I had lying around.

Also you'll notice that one of the pictures displays a wheel with a pad of double sticky tape rubbing on it. This was to create drag because the servo had no pulse value that made it stop (completely).

Disregard my last comment I figured it out. Thanks for the help :).

Do I use servo pin, LOW or LOW pin?

Oh, in Picaxe you can also set the servo pin to LOW, which will turn off the servo completely. It won't hold it in place, though.
