Default 8 cell 9.6V Duratrax 5000MaH Battery in my Slash or SC10

Sorry for all the questions, I was wondering if I would be able to run a 8 cell 9.6V 5000MaH Duratrax NiMH battery in my bone stock slash (12T Titan) or my bone stock SC10 (Reedy 17T).

Would this burn the motors up or wreck the ESC? I read somewhere that the only time the motor and ESC would be getting the full 9.6V is at WOT, so if your WOT time is limited it shouldnt be a problem?

Thanks-

Not a good idea for the SC10, Plenty of burnt up Reedy 17 Turns with
a 7cell pack. Good LiPos are not that expensive and will give better
performance than that brick of a pack.

Max voltage for the SC10 ESC is 8.4V. It is in the ESC manual that comes with your car. Max voltage for the 17 turn motor is 7.4V.
