i just bought a sidewinder but don't know how to wire it. pics would be great.
go to castles site.

no no i want to know how to wire it to the stock motor
White wire on esc goes to the yellow wire on the motor. The other two determine the rotational direction. If you pull the trigger and it goes backwards, reverse the two wires. Hope this helps!

i messed with it and i got it wired they went like this
thanks for the help
it does not matter just plug the wires any way, if you pull the throtle and the motor goes into reverse switch one of the wires and there you go, you may need some bullet adapters from 3.5 to 4 mm
i acually squeezed them with a vice and they went on like the stock ones.
squeeze them with some pliers and clip them on
I got them from ebay, http://cgi.ebay.com/Great-Planes-Bul...item2c563de0ef this is the link so people donīt take things for granted or think that I sent you a prohibited link in private.

worked great for me.
Well I dont mind spending 5 buck if it gives me peace of mind knowing that my connectios are secured.

The other issue with squeezing the connectors is the lack of electrical contact. When you squeeze them you are only getting two points of contact, rather than the entire circumference. I would be mindful of temps on both the motor and ESC, as this will cause higher temps due to the higher current restriction. The better solution is to solder the wires together if you're worried about making a proper electrical connection.

I really dont want to sound rude but honestly squeezing a 4mm connector to make contact with a 3.5mm is a terrible idea. MaxxWrecker07 is 100% correct they will never make proper electrical contact.
