This is probably a really daft question but I am very ignorant when it comes to things electrical. What is the little brown / orange thing between the connections on a slot car motor? I guess it is a resistor or capacitor, but why is it there and what difference does it make if it is removed?

Anyhoo, my SCX Corollo (sic) certainly slowed down when the brown thingie blew.

Raw nerve?

Only joshing with you Inte/Baz. Lord knows, I used to playaround with multiple IDs. I think I have two here as well.
