Default Will this motor/esc combo work?

Looking at the Mamba Max Pro and i want to run a novak ballistic 3.5T off it with two 7.2V packs in series... can that motor take extra voltage or will it not run well above 7.2V? What RPM can a motor like this run at without blowing itself apart?

I've looked at the HV series of novak motors, namely the 4.5T which can run at 14.4V but it seems like it would be rotating at almost the same speed (5000kv*14.4V = ~72k) at this voltage that a non high voltage 4.5T would be at 7.2V (9000kv*7.2V = ~65k)... am I missing something?

Basically, will a normal brushless run (or, survive rather) and give better speed with the higher voltage? is 14.4V too much for this motor? If so what voltage would get more speed out of it without killing it?
