Will these motors work on hobbywing esc?

So I have a ownboard W2 I have been doing diy upgrades on (just changed to a 10s4p), I have ordered racestar 5065 motors 140kv to get that hill climbing kick and plan on getting a new esc eventually, but what I was wondering was if the motors would work on the current hobbywing 40a esc since it has the exact same connectors?

Cheers

Should work i think, however will not fit on the standard trucks probably.

I have the 5045 and they work wonderful with that esc, so I guess the 5065 the same way.

It should work to some degree, but my 40A Hobbywing is matched to 200KV.

Just a clarification as its been done:
The motors barely work on the esc haha, it is limited to 25kms/hour because the esc is programmed to only output 650w of power.
You have the obvious jerkiness of trying to run 140kv motors on a esc designed to run 270kv on startup from stop.

Basically its sketchy as fuck but I am about to purchase a few flipsky single esc’s to solve my problems.
