Default Traxxas SLash VXL with 55c 5000mah 3c 11.1v? too much?

Hello all, So i just purchsed my very first Brushless RCand WOWthis thing is amazing! Ialready put 200$into it in upgrades lol
anyway, im looking at batteries an came across the Genesis Power 11.1V 6000mAh 55C Lithium Polymer LiPo Battery for 69.00$ at banana hobby.
my question is.. can the Traxxas slash Brushless system handle this?the max ive thrown at it was a 3s 2200 mah 30c 11.1v lipo an its screamed!

190 would be max on just about any ESC/motor, just a good safe rule. I had a lot of headaches keeping mine cool, no matter the gearing. The VXL just simply runs hot, then tends to crap out in little time

I wouldn't run longer then 10 min with stock esc/motor at 11.1 v ... 11.1 6000mah is good for around 30 mins give or take and would be overheating after about 10 mins. Mine would hit 170 jus after a few speed runs at 11.1v....
