    ok...had to replace the motors in my p3 4k with the old style motor (2312 NOT the 2312A). I received them today and they are black in color and the wires have male plugs on the ends. My question is, are these the correct motors? and if so how do I distinguish the red, yellow and black wires coming from the motor as the are all black. Any help would be appreciated.

    What do you mean that you had to replace the motors with the 2312.
    The P34K only came with the 2312A as original equipment.
    The two motor types require different ESCs which are integrated into the mainboard.
