as far as soldering goes, we all start somewhere, I was wiring my first car 7 year ago and my dad told me to try it on my own. Lets just say that numerous scars and burns later, it was a functional car but once you get the hang of it, soldering is the easy part, soldering cleanly is the challenge

How come you don't turn your speedy around 180 deg so the motor wires don't cross each other?
