Servo steering

How not to steer

 

I recently hacked some servos for fun, and wound up with a servo that could only turn 90 degrees. This seemed like a good candidate to use as a steering servo. I had never tried steering with a servo, but I'd seen it done. How hard could it be?

I started with my two servo-hacked, brainless gear motors with attached wheels, which I had hot glued together with a battery pack for testing.
