Maybe I'm a little OCD!?

I just wanted to recover some used pinions and play with straightening out some hardware, turned into setting up a library of disassembled dead soldiers...

Real OCD types keep the brushes mated to each other as they come out of the dead set-ups.

When I ran open class wing cars, I would bag a motor's brushes with the springs, then use a Sharpie to write on the bag what was inside and what arm was used. I haven't run these motors in 35 years (1981) but I still have most of the bags.

No, you're not.

You're just like most other slot racers but you shouldn't confuse that with being normal... LOL.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap
