Default wiring question

My new euipment has arrived. Turnigy plush 80A esc, with 3 red wires labelled A B C. Rimfire 42-60-480 motor, with 1 red, 1 black, and 1 yellow wire. Which wires to where is my question. Also is there any kind of a break in procedure for brushless motors? Thanks.

Hook any of the 3 wires on the ESC to any of the other 3 on the motor. Test direction of motor spin, if turning in the wrong direction reverse any two wires of the 3.

Yep, as Mastertech stated on the wiring. Doesn't matter which goes to which.

As for your second question, NO there is no break in for a brushless motor. Unlike a brushed motor, it doesn't have brushes inside that need to run in, hence the name brushless.
