Default Sensorless ESC

Hi,
I'am looking for a Sensorless brushless ESC that will run a slotted motor (Novak 4.5) as i have a 4.5 motor with broken sensors and i need a motor for my pan car. I have a GM 95 speedy which runs the 4.5 fine but I need that for my touring car and I don't want to spend that much money on my pan. Has anyone run the Quark 65A or 80B with a slotted motor? if so how well does it run?.
Thanks, Drew.

A slotted motor is the type of construction that most sensored motors have eg(novak,lrp,gm,sp,team orion etc) . With a slotted motor the wire is wrapped around stacks like a brushed motor. With a non-slotted motor the wire is just wrapped in a coil and glued to the can (mamba). And yes the motors ran very similar to how they did when they were sensored.
Thanks, Drew.

You can send in your motor and exchange/replace it if you want to run sensored.

Mtroniks do sensorless ESC's. The Genesis pro will runa 4.5.

Should be available from RC Monster.

A sensorless esc will work on a sensored brushless motor but it will suffer cogging thats the only down fall, but other than that it will work together. Good Luck...

I may end up getting the mamba mainly because of the price, I don't properly race my pan so a few cogging issues from stand still won't really matter as long as it doesn't do it too much during a race. The mtroniks looks good but if it's going to cog the same as the mamba i might as well get the mamba, then if this 'new software' comes out it won't cog as much.
Thanks, Drew.

Have you tried a novak motor on your mamba?

i tried running my mamba max with LRP 1 star BL motor. My car went reverse and after 1-2 second it went forward. Reminded me of flintstone car.

With the 5700 mamba motor, i could not feel any difference if compared to the sensored brushless cause I also own LRP Sphere comp and Novak GTB.

I had the Exact same problem with the 13.5 from Novak. I hope Mamba makes a 13.5 or 10.5 soon otherwise I will have to run open Mod.
