I had some self adhesive Day-Glo Red sign vinyl that used to mark the positive lead. I cut it into squares and then cut a 1/4 circle out of one corner.

Put that thing under the driveshaft!

Pretty sure this is a 100mm sensor wire, but it's also a 550 motor, so a tad longer I guess. I'm under 6lbs with a nano-tech, stock body, wheels and tires with this set-up.

Ohh crap! Hobbyking messed up my order and sent me one 6600mah and one 6000mah instead of two 6600mah. Just opened a request and will wait to get a refund because I'm not going to wait 3+weeks for delivery.

I setup my + and - from my RX8 so that the positive cannot reach the negative terminal on the battery (some batteries have + and - in diff spots from the Nanotechs, but I only run nanotechs so i dont care). So it's not possible for me to get it wrong. No need to have a really long positive wire anyhow.

What fan did you get. I've been thinking about a heat sink or a fan for mine.

I use nail polish to mark the positive ends on the bullet-type batteries. It just doesn't come off and it saves me batteries and possibly an esc.

Lol, most of us have a girlfriend, wife, or sister. Don't hate for common household items that do the job.
