1) Should I connect directly from ESC to motor?

2) If not, what kind of connector should I use.

3) The stock wires that came with my ESC is 12 AWG. Is it enough?
(100 amp 5200kv on 2S lipos)

4) If I don't connect the sensor wire from ESC to motor, what will happen?

Do kindly leave your comments. I would really need some help here.
Thanks in advance!
Cheers!
1) If you change your motor often and you hate soldering, then you should not solder direct to the ESC...

2) You can use those mini-banana plugs...I think its 3.5mm size...Its shorter and slightly smaller in diameter compared to the banana plugs we use on batteries...

3) 12AWG is thick enough...Your motor will not draw 100A continuously...So I dun think there's any issues on wire gauge...

4) If your ESC supports sensorless mode, it will run in sensorless...But if it doesn't, then it just doesn't move...

Use a screw driver and insert it into your exhaust tip, and bent it back to shape, same goes to your manifold. Wrap your screw driver tip with a little piece of cloth or foam.

You don't need to heat them up.

As for the dented exhaust itself, put water into the pipe and seal it with plastic bag with many rubber bands to make it 'water tight', put it in a freezer, as the carbon dioxide 'escape' from the water, it'll force and bulged the exhaust.

Watch the freeze timing though, you don't want a ballooned exhaust.

Yes.

Seal the stinger as well; that's how it'll keep the water in, right?

You'll only need to check it when it's about to form into ice.
