Default Which 17.5T motor for SC10 RTR brushless

I need a 17.5t motor for a new sc10 brushless rtr truck(in order to race). Pretty sure the ae's esc does not support sensored(but not sure). What motor should I get? Not too expensive if possible

Thank you!

No the RTR esc will not handle any sensored duty as it doesnt have a sensor port.

What did the track say as far as the RTR stuff? too fast for the class? It seems hit or miss depending on region.

There are quite a few combos around. Do you know if you will be able to run boost/timing advance or not?

Only requirement is 17.5t motor. Boost is fine, but the track really isn't large enough for that. I think I just need a sensorless 17.5t motor. What are my options?

I love sensored for the track though. So smooth and punchy.

My buddy runs this in his RCGT car but also pulls double duty in his 2x4 slash. Motor never skipped a bit and does not seem to cog at low rpm. Tough little bastard. For the price, you can't beat it.

But it is 17.5 and sensorless rite? Just kinda wanted some kind of confirmation lol.

This is the first time ive looked something like that up. Like i said i went straight to sensored on my way back into the R/C world.

If there is this one out there, surely there are others. And i know some sensored motors claim to be able to run in sensorless modes.

Castle motors are sensorless from what I understand.

Yes but most sensorless motors i see have a KV rating on them instead of a certain number of turns.

You may want to do some asking to be sure at your local tracks about the sensorless stuff. Everything i see around here with a 17.5, 13.5, etc is all sensored setups.

If they are wanting you to stick to a 17.5 for the class then im sure they are running either ROAR rules or some type of modified set of them.

The track owner has a castle setup, I will have both the xerun 17.5 and now ezrun 17.5 setups (2 different trucks). They wanted something compatible with stock motors. So you can either have a stock brushed setup or 17.5T brushless setup.
