Braids are a little copper braid you solder to the front of the pickup shoes like what came stock on a Super II.

Shunts are little wires that connect the electrics on the bottom of the chassis that go directly to the pickup shoes .I'll get a pic .Standby.

Rock, I respect that.
I strongly suggest you do not take it apart.
but, I think you have the skills and time to put together a competitive car for one of the classes.
in any case, thank you for posting
