    Brushless Motors

    Will reversing the two outside wires connecting the brushless motor to ESC, which makes the brushless motor turn in reverse, affects the performance of the motor in any way? I am installing a brushless motor in my TRX4, but the car runs on reverse rotation. Thanks!

    If it's a sensorless motor, yes. If it's got a sensor wire, you have to make sure the A B C connections are matching.

    What motor and ESC? Sensored, non sensored? If is non sensored, you can move them around until you get the desired result.

    I am getting a motor with a sensor, so you're saying that if it has a sensor, I cannot make it run reverse?

    If it's sensored, you will need to reverse it in the ESC options. What ESC & motor are you using?

    What motor? What ESC? Anything is possible. Everything is breakable.

    Should be clearly marked ďA B CĒ solder points on motor and ESC. donít mix those up.

    So I can switch A and C and still run sensored and in reverse rotation?

    Ok, thanks,

    Somehow, I couldn't find the manual on their website, there were only manuals for the retired products.

    No problem. Pretty sure you can reverse the motor direction with your transmitter. Definitely donít want to move wires around while running sensored.

    I probably won't be running sensored because I'm going to be wading deep water.
    The floor is there to catch your RC, not break it
