The "EP10" is actually the word "EPIC" if you look closely. It is the name of the manufacturing company that produces the motors Trinity sells.
The Speed Gems series motors are low cost machine wound modifieds, the actual wind is determined by the color of the motor (assuming of course, that someone didn't put a different armature in the can)
If you want to run a brushless motor, you'll also need a brushless speed control to go with it. Most brush motor speed controls will NOT handle a brushless motor, but there are a few brushless controllers out there that can be configured to handle a brushed motor.
