Default Positive and negative motor soldering?

Does it matter which side you solder the positive or negative wires onto the motor?

If it does matter, how and I supposed to know where which one goes?

black(sometimes blue) wire from negative-motor on esc goes to the negative side of the motor. The endbell will normally have a - sign stamped in it.

Red wire from positive-motor/batt on the esc goes to the positive side of the motor. The end bell will normally have a + sign stamped in it.

also, if you reverse the wires, the motor turns backwards.

I know what the colors and everything are im just confused on which sides to put them on because there are no markings as to positive or negative sides.

I think its fine, just solder them and test it. If it was going reverse just go to the transmitter menu and make the the throttle channel inverted.

What kind of motor are we talking about here?? running a 540 silver can in reverse for example won't do much but reversing a 27 turn stock motor will. Since a stock motor is set at 24* locked timing if you run it backawards it will have 24* retarded timing, meaning it will run real slow and get real hot. If you can't tell the polarity of the motor then wire it up and try it, if it's the wrong way then re-wire it the other way.

word do not just change it on the transmitter. go ahead and re-solder it.

i just held the wires down with my hand and pulled the trigger.

Got em on the right sides and now the thing is faster than my 11 turn mod motor. (its a EA tuned 27t Monster)

If you look closly on a monster stock there is a positive marking on the endbell of the motor. On the circuit board on the end it should say epic on one side and have a '+' sign on the other, that is your positive (red) side.
