Default Slash 2wd question

Hello folks, 1st time post with a question.

I have a 2wd Slash. So far I have LiPo's, Proline GridIron tires, 50/60wt shock, etc.

Presently I have the stock brushed motor that came in it geared to 19/86 that just barely lets me clear the jumps. A buddy found me a free Speed Gem 10T (purple) motor that was recommended would give me good power. This truck is used on technical hard clay course with lots of 270 deg turns and jumps.

Now is this something that will fit my truck and if so, what else do I need (ESC and gearing) to use it?

Thanks in advance!

I whould just get the STRC LCG conversion kit for the slash that will make a improvement for sure . The shock oil setup does sound pretty stiff i whould go with 45w F and 45w rear or 50w R inless you like the way it is now. The motor sounds good if anything if you want to clear the jumps easier. Try a 17t or 16t on my Titan 12t i use a 86/17 it just has enough to clear jumps with a lipo but a 16t whould be better.
