comment Turn a tank a specific number of degrees
As dfrevert said, tracks MUST slip to turn, it's impossible otherwise. The IR sensor returns an indication of the difference of illumination received by the two internal receivers, this is by no way an angle. Same of thing when used as a distance sensor, it gives an indication based on strength of IR echoed to the sensor, so it is not linear and repends on reflectivity of target.

comment Can you identify this model of a yellow truck?
From the size and style of the model, I felt it could be a model from one universal box. A quick browse in the proper section of peeron database gave the answer... Other useful databases are Brickset brickset.com (among other things it lists official building instructions from modern sets) and Bricklink bricklink.com. Old building instructions are available here too: brickfactory.info
