Or replace the 2 step switch with a 3step one with some resistors under it.
You'll have a full left/neutral/fullright options

That's a sweet mod. I used something similar to control lights on my mini, but the 3rd channel on my radio is on/off, so I couldn't use it to wind and unwind.
how do you control lights? like on and off, or strobing?

free rotation servos are very useful when you dont want to buy a $60 sail winch servo. I have modified a few servos and i like to take the pot outside of the servo but leave it connected, so you can adjust the servo's position from the vehicle as well as the controller. for controller use you just put the pot to centered so it stops turning. for hand use on the vehicle you can just turn the potentiometer and the servo goes whatever way u need it to. yea you all probably already knew that but anything you didn't know. glad to help lol. later

there are other options now. You can buy continuous rotation servos (Hitech) from Pitsco.com or you can now buy VEX robotics motors, which are just servos witha different lead on them. You can get them at Radioshack for 20 bucks each, and all you have to do is switch the vex connector at the end with a standard rc servo connector.
