Now, if this concept works, does anybody make a motor heat sync with a "built in magnet" to attach to the motor can ?? It seems this would still be legal since nothing was done to the motor itself.
Whatcha say motor experts ?? Thanks.

As for zapping, they use an expensive machine to do it, and if done incorrectly can bugger a motor.
As for the magnet thing, don't do it. It's cheating.
