Rc car modding help?

My dad had (broken) a rc car from a old friend that was sitting in the garage. He said that I could have it.
It is a Nikko Super Dictator. When we were trying to fix it the curcuit board went poof and clouds of smoke came out of it, I don't want to fix the board but was thinking about buying a cheap RC kit and using arduino to decode and to control it.
Another way I thought of controlinng it was to get an rc kit and use a speed controler.
The servo in it has 6 wires and has no markings on it to tell me what it is.
If anyone has done this project before please send me a link to an instructable. Also Please tell me the easyst way to control it and if I could just use a prebuilt rc kit with a speed controler, the type of servo and the motor.

IF ANYONE HAS ONE THEY WOULD LIKE TO SELL THAT WOULD BE GREAT TOO, JUST SEND ME A MESSAGE.

Any help, tips and/or links would be appresated.
PS: Do a google search to find out stats.
thanks, David.

The speed controler part is uneconomical. I wish i could put some of by working parts in it from garbage.

I have just taken it apart and got the part number of the motors. If you have anything that would drive the same or simmalar motors that I could mod to fit. I would be happy to buy it off you. Also I would want it to drive a servo (any servo I can change to fit as long it has enough power). Get back to me. If you sell it I will probally buy it off you from a site like ebay.
Motor number.

I don't see it as possible to use an arduino chip and controle it. I have like 7 49 mhz controlers that are all at different ampitudes. You would be best buying a rc cheap like at salvation army. You can buy a $90 30 mph rc at nitrorcx.com to get a great value. Use a soldering iron to melt the plastic to join parts and they work then:0 keep the radio.
