Default Uhhh no clue

I acquired a few R/C parts last night and in the gumbo was a RC10L old school, 2 novak recievers and 2 ESCs(Electronic speed controls). since my cost was free i couldn't say no. I know Theyre a little old school but ESCs are a big cost. Now the issue is there are only 3 wires. 1 blue one for motor neg, 1 blackone for batt neg and 1 red one for bat pos. Uhhhhhh my issue here is theres no Pos red for the motor. Am i to assume i run a jumper and share the red for battery with the motor? Anyone know

You use the same wire. You can either splice, or chain.

Easiest way is to trim some insulation from the red wire and solder a piece onto that to share with motor and battery. Be sure to insulate the solder joint to prevent any shorts.

BTW, that was a very nice speedo in its day! Had one just like it!

Wow, so we are the closest to you !! Unfortunately can't help you with pan cars or offroad. If you get a Touring Car and want to run VTA, RCGT Lites or F1....get in touch. We'll be glad to have you come over and race with us.

Wow a Corally MMS gen I esc. The "credit card" speedo.
It was way ahead of it's time.
It was very light and small compared to its competition.
It was years ahead with the design usign stripped fets.
Should be able to keep up with the other brushed esc's out there.

Yeah, as Andy says.

Let us know how it works out for ya...
Good luck.

What's the timeframe for those, I'm guessing mid '90s?

Corally MMS was late 80's if I recall correctly. Used to race one in 12th in the UK. They produced 2 versions of it, one for 10th and one for 12th, the difference being current limiting I believe, used to use the 10th one for everything. They were way ahead of anything else on the market at the time, I even used to use one in a small 540 powered electric aeroplane too, fantastic just servo taped to the side of the fuselage.
