Where'd you get that front end brace? Or did you just make it with some stand offs and spacers?

Can anyone tell me what type of wire this guy is running from his motor to his ESC?

You get a good close up of at it around the 50 second mark.

Hard to say from just a video. Looks like speaker wire. It's got a translucent(?) red insulation. You could get some at a stereo shop or maybe even radio shack.

Weird. I asked someone located in Japan running it, as I've seen it in a lot of Japanese RC drift videos as well. He said he just buys it from a local RC shop, but has no clue where to find it online or what company makes it. I sort of started thinking it may be speaker wire as well, as I could not find ANY wire other than speaker wire in translucent colours, but I thought speaker wire was bad to run on RC cars? Something to do with the insulation or something.

Here's some pictures rather than video image:

Try looking for power lead wires used for car audio application. Couple of brands to check out - "Streetwires", "Stinger". They carry translucent lead wires in different gauges and lengths.
