These should be out Early April. Peak Preformance says early April and Team Orion says mid April. Are they both the same company?

My questions with this motor is how does it run with a sensorless ESC. I run a Mamba ESC and it runs all brushless motors, however, sensored brushless motors run like crap on that ESC.

I am looking for a stock brushless motor that will be ROAR approved. Or atleast a stock sensorless brushless I can use for club racing.

You must be thinking about a different motor.

The first units are being shipped to customers today.

By customers do you mean distributors or is there a way I can purchase one?

BY customers I mean distributors and dealers who have pre-ordered. Unfortunately all have been pre-sold so you would have to get one from your favorite dealer. All our distributors will receive some, so your retailer should be able to get one for you.

Novak offers two sensored speed controls (3.5T and above) that are plug-compatible with both the Team Orion Vortex sensored motors and the Peak Performance Vantage sensored motors.

These are the original GTB and the new GTB Spread Spectrum version which has been optimized for those racers using a Spread Spectrum radio system.

Connect it to the sensorless ESC without the sensored cable. Obviously being sensorless it doesnt require the cables to deliver the extra info from the motor.
