Default Can ESC handle this motor???

I have a Sprint2 ESC from Duratrax which I believe is rated at 20T. COuld it handle this motor without killing it. It is a Venom Fireball 21 Turn Double Modified Motor. If not what could be some other choices. I am just wantng to make my truck faster but on a budget. Thanks for the help.

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.
