What is it/for

Recommended Posts

I am sure many newbies have asked the same question, but I do not know where to look for the answer. What is the brown blob with wires running to each terminal on the motor do?? Why is it there? What would happen if I remove it? (apart from being slightly lighter)

Thanks, Denis

They are small Capacitors that suppress the electrical noise created by the Brushes/Comutator.

With out these suppressors our slot cars will interfere with TV reception. A really good way to piss the missus off.

Hope this helps....
