Whats that orange bit for?

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?

These noise supressors do burn through. When they do, and if this is what is causing your motor problem, you are already causing snow on the neighbor's TV!


Just clip them out on all your cars. An unnecesary point of failure.
