Well i am a new member to the forum so i would just like to say hi!

My Question is will my EZRun-SC10 ESC Work with a brushless SENSORED motor?

Not really. Sensored motors are meant to be used with a sensored ESC. It might run, but a sensored motor without the sensor wire will tend to cog worse than a motor that is meant to be sensorless. It might just sit there making awful noises.

The EZ-Run systems are sensorless. You can sometimes run sensorless motors with a sensored esc but its not the norm. Some escs can run them, some can't. From my experience with the EZ run systems I wouldn't chance it.

it will work but as locked said there will be pretty bad cogging if i was you i would buy a new system that's fully sensored. or you can go with a dualsky system there pretty cheap and that's what i use specifically for racing in my associated chassis, if you want to check em out go to ckhobby.com and look at the esc's and motors i run the xc550tf-mj and a z5 17.5 in blinky buggy and its amazing has a lot of speed and runs insanely cool (fully sensored system with an auto lipo cutoff set from the factory)

oh yes they don't have the systems right now they just sell the motors/esc's separate until further notice but for speed i would recommend getting a 9.5 or a 8.5 motor and if you go the dualsky route they have a really cool optional part that is an internal fan for the motor that u can also buy on ckhobby for a few bucks

and anytime man glad to help

Default Yes... They will work...

There is a lot of misconception between sensor and non-sensored motor compatability...

The ONLY difference between sensored motors and sensorless motor are the fact that they have a sensor port and sensor that reads rotor position...

Most often a sensored motor does not runn well with a sensorless system because the sensored motor has adjustable time and it will be turn up to 20+ degrees. If you set a sensored motor to a timing between 0 - 10 degrees it will work as good or better than a standard sensorless motor.

Sensorless ESCs still actually locate rotor position by reading the feedback from the three power lines on the motor but it does not do this well at low RPM. If you add a ton of endbell timing on the motor it struggles even more with reading the rotor position on sensorless setup.

Bottom line... You can use any sensored motor with a sensorless ESC as long as you set the timing on the motor low and if you want timing advance to it through the sensorless esc and you will still have a pretty smooth setup.

Most often sensored motors are of better quality then non-sensored motors so paring them with a sensorless esc is better than a non-sensored motor...

You will ALWAYS gett better low speed performance form a sensored setup but don't let a sensorless ESC limit you on motor selection..

Hope this helps...
