I myself have not tried it, but i have thought about it. Dont forget the vortex is a sensored brushless mate. As said previously in the castle creations thread, there designing an update to allow the use of sensored motors with the mamba max, you can run a vortex with the mamba, its just that the vortex might not run at its optimum performance, because the ESC is sensorless. Hope that clears things up for ya!!

I believe a sensorless esc can easily run sensored brushless motors.

My understanding is that is not correct. There have been reported problems with the Mamba Max running the Novak motors and Tekin as well is have -slight- issues (or was) with running the Novak motors as well.

You might take a look at John Stranahan's Pantoura thread. He has done a lot of testing with Novak motors and Novak, LRP and MM speed controls. He has also completely redesigned the front and rear suspension of his 1/10 pan car. It is wicked fast and hangs with pretty much anything else that might be on the track when he is. Don

My understanding about the Vortex motors is that they can run as either sensored or sensorless. This was they are able to run with any manufactures speed controls.

Correct! We have had good feedback from drivers using the Mamba/Vortex set-up.

Now, if only Orion would come out with Stock and 19t equivalent brushless motors.
