How to control a motor

Hey, Tom [Handley], I was just looking at the Robotstore.com
3-709 gear some more. Here are the specs:
3-709 - Twin Motor Gear Box Kit - $19.95
Two DC motors & gears in a compact unit. Same as in the Bulldozer.
Provides full fwd-rev-left-right action! Build with 1 of two
different ratios: fast 58:1 or strong 203:1. Size: 75 x 50 x 23 mm.
Shafts: 3 mm hex, 105 mm long. Add your own wheel, hubs or tracks.
Notice this comes in 2 gear ratios. I wonder - this thing might be
the same size [or even same unit] as used in the RS sentinel tank.
I bet the tank has the faster ratio, and it might just be possible
to pop the slow/high-torque ratio version of the 3-709 into the tank.
This might be ideal.
