Sounds like an oops by Orion.
Team Orion does offer three optional sensor cable lengths. The information has just not been posted yet. Please see the Team Orion website for details to be posted shortly.
We decided to not offer the cables with the motors for a couple of reasons. The first is that the motor can be used as a sensorless motor and our research shows that this is how the majority of user (non-racers) will use it. Also, many users will already have sensor wires in their desired length. And sensor wires are readily available through other manufaturers as well as Team Orion.
The last reason is that we have to include the very longest length to be sure it fits in every car (or complaints about too short a wire) and many will opt to buy a shorter length for their desired appplication anyway.
But we are looking into including wires beginning with the next shipment.
