I have been reading around and have noticed that alot of you buy custom motors. I was wondering if any of you wind your own motors. I was recently into xmods/miniz and i wound my own motors. You can make very high performance motors for low costs. If any of you are interested in learning i would provide you great link and info on torque and geting better speeds and some excellent combonations.

Of course we're interested, post away. We'll have to add a few more turns on the wind for slot car motors though. And BTW, welcome aboard.

I have a stock of burnt out motors, maily mabouchi and SCX RX's, that have died on me during the past few years, that I could probably have a go at. I suppose Ive never thrown them out because ive thought I may be able to repair them.

I have a nerve problems in my wrists due to an accident as child, so my hands shake. I can control it when I really concentrate. (Im not disabled (but its a disability and a right pain in the @ss. I have total admiration of the courage I see in people with worse afflictions) Ive opened a few motor cans up, which is hard enough, but winding motors with wire than thin
, I think will be beyond my capabilities. However, saying that, i have heard and read, that re-winding motors can really boost performance.

Its a topic I know very little about, and would be very interested in anything you can direct my way. Even if I try it - Im not loosing anything - itll be worth the experience.

Cheers

Great site russel www.carmoworld.com this is a site with basic winding tips and also cheap motor parts. This isn't a slot car site but if you have a motor that has the pinion at the ende of the can you could use these parts. Not the end of the brushes, but if it is driven at the end of the brushes you could still use the magnets and brushes and such. Cool scientist don't worry about if your hands shake when you concentrate just try not to really focus in on one particular thing. Try watching tv and winding the motor. Just make sure you keep track of you winds. And when your rewinding the motor just remember that you cand do anything you set your mind to. That may have sounded a little corny but it's true good luck
