Um... the motor control circuit is already all built (both circuits).  So
if you do have to pick a new motor, pls pick one that's going to be
compatible with the circuit (the circuit works for the little motor) (I
mean in terms of voltage & current draw).  Dan Manns is also using the
same motors and he built a little gear box thing ... if he can handle it,
so can you.
