Your ESC should be fine with any motor whose number of turns is higher than the limit on your speed control. The venom fireball isn't much of a performance upgrade over the photon speed that the speed control probably came with in the RTRs. I'd suggest looking at a good rebuildable 27T 'stock' motor as you'll likely get better performance from those.
