Default Brushless ESC?

I just burned up my Reedy brushless esc and was wondering if I can use a esc that is bigger, made for a 1/10 buggy or should I stick with a 1/18 brushless esc?

As long as it will fit, it will work. You can run a bigger one backwards to smaller. Just don't go the other way. The bigger one will handle more amps, and not work as hard with the smaller motor.
