ok i have a brushless motor thats shot and i want to use my ESC with my brushed motor but the colors dont match. the brushed motor has black and red wires and on the esc the black and red wires are the batt wires. there are 3 other wires that are blue yellow and orange. how can i hook these together

the motor i want to use is a peak racing 10x2 motor and the esc is a super sport 10.5 brushless esc

The wires don't match cause you shouldn't be using a brushless ESC for a brushed motor.

Just... don't try it unless the ESC is designed to take both like the Novak GTB.

Good luck!

I think that should read a brushed ESC for a brushed motor.

The SS controller is BRUSHLESS ONLY.... Do not try running a brushed with it...

That's nice, your directions won't help him one bit since he has a Novak Super Sport ESC... Go get a new SS5800 motor...

Super Sport 10.5 is the Losi RTR ESC from Novak.

In the Super Sport 10.5 instructions there is no mention of brushed motors. In the Super Sport Plus instructions they tell you to connect the red wire from the battery to one side of the motor and all the brushless motor wires to the other side of the motor. But you have to set up the ESC mode for brushless running and the Super Sport 10.5 manual has no mention of brushed mode.
Based on reading the manual I'd say you can't run brushed motor with your ESC.

If you want to use your speed controller as both brushed and brushless use LRP. LRP ESCs sense how they're connected and switch profiles automatically.

What I'm wondering is how on earth did you manage to "shoot" your brushless motor?
