    I found two different tutorials for connecting an Arduino and sabertooth driver and running them through SMC 3. https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...ket-serial-pid-motor-driver-w-softstart.9277/

    https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/arduino-sabertooth.5571/

    One says to use the 5v from the sabertooth the power the pots and to use pin 8 on the Arduino while the other one says to use pin 13 on the Arduino and power the pots from the Arduino. Each also has different code. Which one should I use?
