Default Trinity Monster TEP1539 2.5 10k+ motor... what esc?

Let's say I'm willing to sacrifice a car to make a 100+ mph running on 3s. What the heck esc do I need to handle it? Will a MM2 work?

go with a reliable 1/8 ESC in a 1/10 sedan. they will handle 4-6 cells.
we already hit 75+mph with 2 cell on a closed onroad track and a 4.5,
drop a 3.0 and a 3 cell in and get a long straight, should get you pretty close

Tried my trinity 2.5 d4 In an rx8 esc on 3s... overheatted quicker than was worth it. Better to go for a larger can size for motor and taller gearing instead of the fastest motor out there.
