So you just replaced the magnets in the motor with neodymium ones... ? Wouldn't that just effectively lower the gear ratio... ?

Nope...added magnets... :D

The stupid motor has an impossible plastic casing but neodymium magnets seem to pull on the motor through it anyway.

Just place them on the motor or on the casing where it pulls the most.

Makes it faster and makes it drain battery faster!

I'm thinking that might fall under the 'Modified' catagory, but it would be fun to watch.

Speaking of Watches, I got a new stopwatch just for the races.. Only cost a few bucks, and easier to read than my phone.
