I would like to know is it possible to make a flywheel system out of RC car engines. Also I would like to know how do you wire a switch into a circuit.

It would be possible but you may have to modify the flywheel cage and or shell to accommodate the motors. The switch you wire in to break the connection for either the common or the hot wires but only one of them. Most switches are NO or NC meaning Normally Open or Normally Closed.

Solder is the most common - and best - method for wiring jobs in general, but alternatives include shrink wrap (which can be cheaper) and (forgive me for the lack of name - it slipped my mind) those solder-less joint kits that you can attach and take apart at will. All have benefits and disadvantages, so its up to you what you really need.

 

I personally go with solder because it lasts forever when done right.
