Capacitors on motor wires?

    Hi,
    I am building a robot that is using two 350 watt electric motors http://www.monsterscooterparts.com/24v-350w-motor-11-tooth-25-chain-my1016.html

    I ran into a small issue. Usually you want to suppress electrical noise by soldering two capacitors to the terminals and the casing. However, the terminals on my motors are inside the casing. Would it still suppress noise if I soldered them to the wires close to the casing?

    Thanks

    Motor suppressing

    Hi there. I dont think its that much of a compromise, yes its best to keep them as close as possable to the source of electrical noise, but a few inches / mm should still work ok, as close as is physicaly possible, not quit as good as direct connection, but ok i think.
