Here is the link to a page from our web site that discusses the differences.

Novak manufactures sensored motors:

And just to throw a money wrench in the works, I'll mention that I am running a Novak SS5800 motor with the 13MM sintered rotor using a Castle Sidewinder Sport ESC. I have the sensor cable from the Novak motor plugged into my rear shock tower. [Wrapped around it, actually.]

Thanks for the link.
In my understanding based on the written explanation, sensored brushless is much much better than sensorless.

After running a novak sensored setup, I will always run a "Proper sensored setup, not some sensorless hack-job" (sorry to whoever i stole that quote from. There is a world of difference between sensored and sensorless.

i believe you owe that to syndr0me.

Although...
SL is not a "hack job". SL is actually very smooth, most of the better BL esc's only use the sensors at start up (tekin, speedpassion), and then switch to SL operation once the back emf is established. why? from what i understand this way is more accurate @ higher rpms, but SL start up can be an issue with higher wind motors(which is why most SL combos use faster motors, for example castle's slowest motor is a 4600 kv, which equates to about a 8.5 novak), which is exasperated by the uber tall gearing needed to run on the motors.
