Open ESC for sensored 1/12 pan cars?

Morning all,

Interested to know if VESC - or an alternative open firmware - maybe capable of driving a sensored 540 sized 13.5t motor?

Class restrictions specify zero timing, 1s batteries, and selectable Forward/Brake or Forward/Brake/Reverse.

Ultimately I'd like to move from the typical high frame rate PWM control signals over to DroneCAN - or similarly capable open digital protocol and resolve a few minor issues around braking and reverse controls.

My current speed controller is speced for 95A continuous, and 600A burst. I think average current draw over a race is in the 30-40A territory.

Thanks!
