Nope, just cut down battery bars soldered to the brush tubes to increase the surface area for cooling and to give a place to zip tie the motor wires down so during a run if the wire unsolder they stay in contact.
The copper wire you see is just stripped motor wire wound through the battery bars and zip tied to the motor wire. This also helps keep them in place.
Motor wires unsoldering from V2's is a common problem for the really fast drivers if its hot outside. This only happens to guys that really put the power down and drive hard....I have never had this problem with my V2's
The black shrink wrapped bundle behind Surikarns's motor is a bundle of schottys and caps. This is supposed to keep the motors cooler.
It must have been really hot at the Thai race.
