Hi All,

I have been having a sort out and I have a number of Scalextric motors of various types, from Johnson to Mabuchi; about 20 in total.

I wondered whether storing them all together, for example, loose in a tupperware tub would cause any long term damage? I have checked that there are no loose screws or axles etc. I am hoping to use these motors at a later stage and wanted to check this will not cause harm or long term effects?

Many thanks,

Jamie

Good question Jamie, I have thought about that same thing, i would like to hear what others do with their Motors when in storage to. I have mine in a plastic parts type bin. One thing for sure they don't rattle around, mine are all stuck together,

My experience has been that motors stored so that they touch each other does not effect the strength of ceramic magnets. I keep my spare motors in the sort of compartmented storage container that is made for fishing lures. If you tend to worry a lot you can add padding of some sort to keep the motors spaced apart.
