Whoa...I'm just a toy car racer.

If you're serious, then thank you big time, I'm flattered!

When wiring up a starter box, in order to get the wheel to spin in the correct direction, will it do any any damage to the starter box motors if the polarity is changed? Ie. Switch positive and negative terminals around. It's a twin motor, 12V gel cell box.

What your doing is right it will just spin the motors in the opposite direction

Reversing the polarity will be fine. I don't see any reason why it would cause any damage at all to the motors, aside from maybe a little arcing because of any timing built into the motors?

Regardless, you're not going to kill your starter box motors (just as nitrojunkie said). So go right ahead.

Racing Toy Cars for Bowling Trophies, Now that has to really boost the ego!

I know that I feel a whole lot better about myself after pulling my trigger.

My self steam improves every time I think about it.

I thought so based on my limited electrical engineering knowledge but I thought I'd better check before I set fire or blew something up.

Thanks guys.

There is a good chance that motor is not timed for max torque so it could run both ways the same. (kind of like a mabuchi motor)

No they are too short. You need XXX (Gen1) bones.
