As long as it isn't sensored it doesn't matter. If it runs backwards just change two wires around.

you have a mamba max which is sensorless and your trying to use a sensored motor with it.. IT WILL NOT WORK correctly it will stutter and stall until it gets a few thousand RPMs on it.. get a sensoreless motor.Problem solved..

Any motor labeled ABC is sensored. I've HEARD some sensored motors will work on a sensorless esc but I've never seen it done and don't know what may or may not happen if you try it.
