    Depends. You didn't list the cell count of the pack. Dependent on the cell count it may or may not work. You need to know the voltage capability of the motor and esc and then compare that to your...

    Sorry can't help you with the esc programming, but the thin red cable is most likely an anti spark lead. You connect it before hooking up the main red lead of the battery to the esc.

    Maybe, maybe not. You still have to follow the rules even if it's a car motor. Kv rating will determine the prop size, dependent on the pack cell count.
    If it's a real high kv you'll have to run a...

    I looked a little deeper too, seems Jeff had his design "borrowed" by a Korean company back in 2004 and there were counterfeit versions popping up.
