It's only for TAMIYA J-can & sports tuned motor.
I've tried 27T stock motor on it before but no good.

Official limit is 21 turns.

I have run a 17x2 on it, but it does get hot.

Nope. Stick to a RS540 sports tuned with that esc.

I have run a 27T stock motor off it, geared correctly it ran flawlessly for the race, I wasn't the fastest car out there but it did make race distance and is still running in excellent condition.
The temp was warmish for the ESC.

I wouldn't go above a Tamiya Black can, otherwise you might end up melting the ESC very quickly

From what I've heard, they have a resistance that is comparable to a turd. I tried running one at the local track and switched to a Novak GT7(manufacture plug ) and it made one heck of a differance and that was with a silver can motor.

yes that is correct. i was using one in stock class(silver can) then bought a tekin g10 pro + and it made a massive difference in punch and top speed

The main thing to look for in an esc is the resistance, the lower the better. The Futaba(Manufacture Plug ) works good for the money, but if you plan on running it for racing, I would save my money and maybe get a Novak GT7(Manufacture Plug ) Try doing a search of specs. for different esc's and you'll see what I mean about the resistance.

Shift- you got that right, what a difference it makes on the punch and overall control.

Check out Slickzero for a speed control, they have some really inexpensive ESC's that they import from the OEM and they work great. I have the one with the 7 turn limit in my Mini, it's resistence is less than a GT-7. Check out the specs, you won't be dissapointed, and it's half the cost of a GT-7. Click on the Slickzero link in my Signature

For less resistance would it be best to just solder the motor wire directly to the esc?
