Bill's tank uses relays in much the same way that the R/C tanks do.  His 
setup uses a joystick to switch the relays on and off rather than 
controlling them remotely, but his H-bridge is going to be functionally 
the same as the ones you see in all these other tanks.  Short of holding a 
handful of bare wires and rewiring the motors on the fly, there's no other 
way to do it.

Well, I suppose you could use some old-fashioned blade switches, if you're 
going for the Dr. Frankenstein look.
