Just a heads up, goldmine-electric has some NOS CD Rom drive assemblies... $3.50, includes 2 motors and an IR laser diode. The 2 motors won't have any wear, being new, and if you're a fairly good electronic hacker, perhaps the laser diode can be used a la ParkZone Combat XPort module...

Hope someone can use this ;)

edit2:sorry again, no idea where this should go, seems like there's at least 2 relevant motor forums, and possibly the bargain basement and others too? Last time I was here there were a lot fewer forums
