4 Channel Motor Controller

Houston--Concepts for a young machine

I've been planning, shopping, ordering parts, and waiting for what seems like forever. I want to show you guys what I've been working on, but it's still just a pile of assorted parts while I wait for certain important odds and ends to get it all together. But a couple of weeks ago I put together a sketchup model to get an idea of some sizing and fit and finish. Since I couldn't upload the model, instead I offer a few screenshots of what I've been working on.

RF shielding

The encoder wires on my Rover 5 seem a little short.  The ground wire seems to be a shield around the other three conductors.  Also, I notice that the pin groupings on my 4 channel motor controller have a ground.  Makes me think a little.

Rover 5 - Dagu Spider and 4 Channel Motor Controller

Ok so i recently purchased the Rover 5 Kit from Robotsavvy by Dagu.

With Help from Oddbot i have put wires from the encoder into the Motor Controller (in the right place i think)

But i have no idea which pins go to the arduino and also where on the arduino they go to.

 

Image of what ive done and the question :

 

Any help would be appreciated.
