Yeah, I recommend the HW x.5T motors. As I mentioned, I've had 2x 17.5T motors and both were great. I was going to pick up a 13.5T motor but got a great deal on a Medusa.
The ESCs run sensorless motors only, so no go with your sensored motor unless the motor can run in sensorless mode.

Sensorless speedos can run both sensored and sensorless motors. It's the same thing it just doesn't make use of the sensor.
Bought my hobbywing ezrun without a motor and have been running various sensored motors, have never run a sensorless motor on it.

Yep, running a novak 13.5 behind my 35a speedo right now, and I love it!no cogging , all sorts of power, and the motor temp are 123* after 10+ minutes of running.

Oh, didn't know that. That's good to know, thanks.
The larger EZRuns (80A and 150A) can run sensored motors in sensored mode. I'd like to pick up a Tekin T8 to try, but can't afford one...ha.

Turnigy = REBADGED version of the EZRun.

Whichever "brand" you find cheaper...

Check ebay, check rcmart, etc...
