Depends on load. What are you trying to determine?

I am trying to determine continuous and max amps this motor will pull. I know the traxxas vxl pulls 65-100 amps if I am not mistaken. My lipo has a max discharge rate of 80 - 120 amps 15cx8000 mah and I just wanted to make sure it would work without overheating. I have the Losi setup also but it currently in under a warranty issue!

I think you will be OK as long as you are not overgeared.
The 15C is a little lower than ideal, but it's a pretty big pack.
Just make sure the motor and esc don't get too hot to touch reasonably comfortably, and the lipo doesn't get warm.
If it does, suggest trying at least a couple teeth smaller pinion.
