So does the 150A come with any software? I see on the hobbywing website that the software looks eerily familiar to the Brushlesshobbies.com software I already have. I'm assuming I can just plug these HW escs up to that?

As long as your program box works with your esc I wouldn't worry about changing it. If you have a V3 then you would need to change the software on the box.

So I recently bought a WP SC8 combo that came with a ezrun 3656 motor. When I opened the box, I saw that one of the solder posts on the motor was broken. Is it still ok to use, or do I need to try to get a replacement? Also, I'm completely new at soldering, so that may make a difference too.

I would still use it... But I would hate to wait and get an exchange.

Just make sure you get a good solder joint at the base.

I guess Speed Passion, Hobbywing and BHR are all the same because all three work with the same BHR software....

It looks like it does according to the tuning chart they show with the speedo:

I just placed an order for the 4274 1800kv motor on falcon sekido. Does this motor come with the sensor wire or will I need to purchase this separately?

Also I ordered a SCT Pro 120a ESC. Would this come with a sensor wire?

Just making sure so I can be all ready when I get them in.

That combo will run super smooth, cooler and longer unsensored. At least try it unsensored... It will prolly surprise you.

Speed Passion is rebranded Hobbywing built esc. Brushless Hobbies is just a downright copy.

Pretty much every Hobbywing ESC can be programmed to have reverse. I do not own a Justock ESC but I would be confident in saying it does.
