Default Tamiya TEU-101BK ESC Questions?

I Have a Tamiya TA-05 running a Tamiya TEU-101BK ESC and a Tamiya Black Sports Tuned Motor. I want to try other motors but don't know if the ESC will handle them. I have been given a 27t Epic motor and a Tamiya GT 25t motor. Can I use any of these motors with this ESC or not. What turn is the Sports Tuned Motor?

ESC is rate for 27T but should handle a 23T no problems. 60Amps is the limit. Sports Tuned US/Japan version is 27T. European version is 23T.

I use the TEU-101BK with a Tamiya super stock RZ (23T), with no major problems.

The TEU101 will run motors hotter than the RS540 sport tuned, which is not 27T in Japan, its 23T same as Europe and i expect the US ones are the same as well. The big problem with using this speedo with hotter motors is it will expire a lot sooner. These speedos do go off, and even with a sport tuned if given a hammering it will deteriorate.
