I have a e-mountainboard unsensored. I was doing doughnuts in grass, fell down and when i got back up one of the motors wouldnt spin. It just coggs back and forth now. Im guessing some magnets broke loose. Do I need sensored setup to do drifting/doughnuts safely?

Well i spoke too soon. It was just one of the barrell connectors. Put a new one on and it works again. Im still curious though. Does it do any harm for the motors to spin at different rates(doughnuts) running unsensored?
