Default 1/16 Summit VXL Big Block Conversion Help!!!!

So my esc fried, im guessing it was undersized for the truck.

Now im looking in to doing a big block conversion to avoid this issue again. I'm going to do the conversion using brushed summit parts, not tenbol (its more affordable this way).

As far as motor/esc and gearing this one has me stumped.

1. Seeing how i cant find a good deal out there for a used setup, i am looking at the castle sidewinder sct esc and 1410 3800kv motor.

2. For Gearing im thinking of going with a 50t spur and a 31 or 32t pinion.

The reason i have chosen these is because id like to go 40ish using 2s lipo. i verified at this website (scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/top_speed.html).

My big question is, will this work without overheating the motor and esc???

Also if any of you have parts you can part with at reasonable prices please pm me.

Thanks in advanced for your help!!!

yer motor and esc choice sounds good to it is a mini I guess.. I used to use a tekin rs setup, an sv2 esc on another car with tekin an novac 540 motors, titan 12t, n ran fine... but start low on the pinion.
