No worries bro. There should be two wires coming from the speed controller, one a dark color, one a light color. The dark color will be negetive, and that will have to be soldered (or connected via a plug) to the negetive pole on the silvercan motor.

The light color will be positive, and thus attached to the positive pole of the motor.

it was a sidewinder brushless speed control and thanks. i figured it out. all the wires on the esc go to the negitive and then a lead from the possitive to the batery. anyways i got 1st in all qualifiers but my battery came unpluged during the main and by the time i got back in i was last.

Well, the main thing is I hope you had fun.

Look at it as an experience, not a failure, we all have good and bad times, new or old to the hobby
