Default vxl combo motor options

Is the 3500 motor that comes with the vxl combo the only motor you can run with that esc? If not what are some brushless motor options that the vxl esc can handle.

Ok thanks a lot. What motor would run the best and give the most power. I am running an 11.1v 30c lipo.
