Default GM V12 Worlds Edition

Has anyone got a GM V12 worlds speedo with the square diode, or had any experience of one?
If so do i cut the middle of the 3 legs off, join the 2 remaining ones together then solder them to the motor negative and the other square end with the hole in it to the motor positive?
Or do i solder 1 of the legs to the neg and the pther to the pos after cutting off the middle one?
Please see the attached pic of the instructions, i didnt think they were that clear

Default I slick idea to do is...

get yourself a Futaba servo conector with a length of wire. Futaba sells plug ends. Cut the center pron like you said then insert it into the end of the Futaba plug. Leave yourself a short amount of wire so you can put the diode where you want it, and solder the two wires into the neg and positive post of the speed control. Then you can use it over and over when you swap out motors. Also make for a neat wire setup. Just a thought.

sweet idea, thanks for that
could also run a wire to where the centre plug is from what should be the positive end of the diode and cover the whole thing in heatshrink
most excellent idea. thanks again

Here's how I did mine awhile back. Hard to do, but possible.
