I don't know why not. There are plenty of open i/o lines even on a fully
stocked (2 servo, 3 line sensors, 2 distance sensors). I've thought of
using the guts from a cheap radio controlled car for steering but
haven't had the need.

Subject: Re: Mark III remote controlled?
Thank you! Meanwhile I've seen I2C described some places. I'm not quite sure
what it is; could that be useful for remote control and does the Mark III
support that? (I wasn't able to dertermine that from the web site).
I2C is fully supported by both the PIC & OOPIC versions. It's described
in AN735 on Microchip's site. It's basically an IC to IC serial
protocol. The MarkIII uses it if you get the optional 32Kbyte EEPROM,
the expansion card, or some of the 3rd party controllers (like the
Devantech motor controller).
Sample code can be found here:
