You can. If your gearing is conservative and your not running on carpet you should be okay, otherwise it will thermal and shut off.

I've ran a Reedy Quad Mag with mine, outdoors, as a drift car and it's only thermaled when I've ran indoor on a carpet track.

It will shut off before it blows up. So you can always try it and see.

If you do run it you do risk damaging the ESC and having it never work properly again. The 101 is only rated at a 540 Black Can, Sports Tuned motor. Any faster than this and you risk damaging the ESC

It will thermal before you blow it...and if you want to run 19T, well, you'll probably want a new ESC anyway. Best motivation is to blow it up.

The ESC would still be ruined. Your best bet is to get a cheap, basic, 15+ turn ESC.
