I have been seeking the same answer to the question. Is the truck going to be used for racing or bashing? There have been test done and all the makers that make high rpm motors are sensorless. But when you race it's not all about speed , it's turning and jumping...control! The sensored motor won't glitch at very low speed, and if it's geared for Max potential. If you run like most it's probable on/ off full throttle

I bought a sensored esc for my Typhon because it was a better esc and not or the low speed performance. I am more into the data logging that comes with the sensored operation. I’m a stats geek so I love that poop.

The 6-8s ESC are mostly sensorless. The sensor ESC are based on 4-6s but I agree on the data links. I think the mamba xl x is 1:5 and good for 8sbut it's sensorless
