Default Is it ok to use a 35A ESC when all I need is a 25A ESC

Is it ok to use a 35A ESC when all I need is a 25A ESC. Looking at the Silver Series 25A and 25A ESCs. Thanks.

Yes it is. You never want to exceed amperage draw in excess of the ESC's rating. In this case.....Big is good.

The higher current ESCs are usually a bit heavier, but if a little extra weight is OK, the higher current rating is fine.

I tend to have my esc's larger so in the summer they won't heat up as quick as if I ran the numbers close.
I like to have a little more room to play.
