Default NeuMotor 1512/3.5D Motor / Losi Conversion

I have a couple of questions regarding the installation of a Neu motor in a Losi conversion. I read they threads they were just too long however.

What kind of leads on come on the Neu motors? If I want to connect it to a MMMv3 what kind of leads do I need to solder on the wires supplied with the ESC?

What is the exact modification or screws required to mount the Neu motor to the Losi motor mount?

Last question, if I buy a smooth canned Neu motor will the Losi heatsink fit on it?

Three wires coming out of the back of the motor. You will need to solder the wires onto it and go to the 6.5mm connectors on the M Monster.

3x12 mm flat head screws if the can has the 3mm holes. I have heard that some of the Neus are coming out with 4mm holes, if so the screws in the losi conversion should work.

The losi motor and smooth Neu are within 1mm of each other so I think it should and I have read that others are using the heatsink.

Thanks.. I think the 1500kV running 5S at 14/45 will be spot on.
