Am I getting motors correct? I'm building a third party psu for a slot car race track. Obviously easy bit is transforming 240Vac down to 12Vdc. But I am unsure how thiswill react with my motor. THe motor is rated as 12Vdc at 0.42A. Am I correct in thinking that if the motor is corrected in series with rheostat (as thus to adjust the Volts suppled to the motor) it will slow down? Or will it for some reason decide to take even more than 0.42A

Also, the main issue. I've got two tracks which essentially act as uninsulated wires. On each loop the respective Rheostat will of course cause a Volt drop and therefore less p=iv into the M1. But conservation of enerhgy,that v drop will now of course go into M2. How can I make it so that the motors are independentanly speed controlled? I've heard of pwm or something but that is out of bounds.
Please help oh mighty ones
