Since the sensors never seem to be hitting the UK, I was wondering if anyone had peeled back the heat shrink to see whats hiding underneath the temp/volts sensor?

I'm guessing the temp is a thermistor & volts probably a resistor/diode.

Obviously the cost involved with buying the actual traxxas sensors makes it a bit daft to make your own, but since they're not available yet, I wondered if anyone had details so I could make some up & have a proper play with my TQi.
