Thanks for the response. This is more of a learning experience than anything right now and I appreciate the guidance. So the motor that got me thinking (just something that popped up on ebay. not even sure I saved it) was a 4pole, just under 3500 KV unit. I have no idea on the number of slots in the stator for either a typical buggy motor or the boat motor. Is it the stator design that impacts the pulse timing on the ESC, or is there something else to consider?
Also as long as I'm asking, I found the oddball size boat motor (was the only 29mm can I've seen). While I was looking for a breakdown of available motor sizes. Any chance there a chart or list of motor series and sizes floating around anywhere?

​​​​​​THanks!
