That manual you pictured is the 'old' version ---

DL the manual update -

http://www.hpieurope.com/manuals/pdf/100424.pdf

In your pics =
Pic #1 shows 4 wires off the right side =
TWO heavy gauge (thicker) should be to the battery
The two smaller gauge (thinner) should be going to a switch

I've traced the wires back however the 3 black bullet connectors each go to the motor and the left hand side red and black wires goes to a deans connector which connects with the batter. the thin red and black wires on the right hand side go to a JST(?) balancing plug and the thicker ones are the female deans connector.
I've sent a wide view of the side of the car to show the wires better.

Well judging from that, the previous own must of gotten rid of the switch for some reason, as there is no sign of wire for a on off switch, it seems to drive on with the lipo plugged in, I'll run it properly tomorrow and see how it goes. Once final question for now is, how do I know if the mesh is right between the spur and the pinion gear? It seems a little tight/rachety at the moment, and from my nitro days I know that you could use a sheet of paper to set it, however i know these motors can be pretty powerful and i dont want to strip a gear on my first run out!

The motor will cause a slight ratcheting feeling - yes
But so will a misaligned spur gear -

You should be able to see/feel if the gears are set properly -
You can reset the mesh - Just like the nitro days - A strip of paper is the way I do it also
