Old school speed contoller

I have a old school sub with a big mubitchi (SP) brute-forceelectric motor.There are no current connections to the motor, so how can I control it?
Can I use a new speed controller, or are those only for newer brushless motors only??

Re: Old school speed contoller

While most of the newer electronic speed controllers (esc) are for brushless motors, you can still find brushed esc's which could work with the motor. Do you have any idea of the voltage 3, 4.5, 6, 9 or 12 volts There are still lots of Mabuchi motors available, although I can't find any listed as Bruteforce.
You may find it easier to upgrade to a brushless motor and esc.
