Have a look at this:

It can be done using a couple of logic chips.
93  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Holding an 11 mm shaft with non-metric pillow blocks on: February 02, 2013, 09:51:43 pm
For press fit stuff like bearings in housings heating the housing and putting the bearing in a cold environment before assembly would be used depending on circumstances. But has been mentioned just slitting the bronze sleeve (hacksaw or whatever) will allow the sleeve to go into the pillow block. If you are using collars on the shaft or whatever is attached next to the pillow block then that would keep the sleeve from coming out.

Take a look at this

Parallax is trying (somewhat) in getting their products to work with the Arduino so it takes a little digging to find stuff.

They have  "Kickstart" (which looks like it has been moved recently) but it looks a little thin in programming examples for now.

Here is the page.

Take a look at this and see if it will help you.

Take a look at this appnote from Atmel.

The tube being fixed at one end and the other end of the tube moves then the moving end becomes a point on a sphere.

Look into spherical to rectangular conversion.

Don't know if a 1pf cap versus a .1uf (what your Pro Mini has on it) matters but the .1uf has an order of 100,000 times over the 1pf.

You might want to try and kick your cap up a bit. Just use a tpyical bypass cap.

There probably is an "arming" sequence to allow the control of the motor. You don't want the car to take off as soon as you plug the power in.

OK I'll throw out one more and I think this might be it (did a little looking at the pro mini).

On the pro mini it has the capacitor between the DTR and reset circuit. Take a look at the schematic for the pro mini.

Some people put the capacitor on the cp2102 end.

OK I've done a little bit of trying stuff. I do have a CP2102 but it is a little old but I did get it to work (my settings page looks like yours). On looking at your model there was a thread about it (John was in the thread) and in that thread it was mentioned that the labeling was incorrect for the TX and RX (flipped). I don't know how you are hooking this up to your minis but I would stare really hard at how you have the TX and RX hooked up ( TX to RX and Rx to TX ) . Maybe a quick test is to hook up the TX line of the CP2102 thru a led -current limiting resistor-ground and see if there is activity on it when transmitting.

Here is that link:

Just got back into the arduino and on one of the boards (from Evil Mad Scientist) I use a usb to rs232ttl for programming (had to add the capacitor to the rts line to form the rst).

It was giving me the same as you are getting ( I tried many times ). So I went into the device manager and found the device in Ports and right clicking on it brought up ... Properties. Clicked on Properties and selected Port Settings tab. Selected Adavanced and there were some options on how the port works. On mine the 'set rts on close' was checked so I unchecked it and closed the windows. Tried again and now it works. If I go back in to the device manager and recheck it I get the errors on trying to program. Unchecking  allows programming.

I'm using pre 1.x IDE . Don't know if this is adressable in the newer IDE's.
Hope this helps.

Just thinking that this may have already been done in a way so a little googling came up with a few.

Here is one that looked OK.
105  Using Arduino / Motors, Mechanics, and Power / Re: Creating your own PWM to control a servo. on: November 16, 2012, 01:51:19 pm
  ? int servo = 14;

Have not looked at the pin def's for the tiny85 which is a 8 pin device but pin 14 sounds wrong.
