Default TURNIGY K-Force 100A Brushless ESC any good for 10c

are these good enough to fly a 2450w motor on 10c? I'm new to this and trying to save a few bucks. Any other good cheap ESC's for 2M pattern?
thanks, T

No, the amp rating is the amount of current the ESC can handle at up to 6S, or 22.2v. So, that means the ESC can handle 100 Amps, 150 Amps burst, at a max voltage of 22.2 Volts.
It's not meaningless, VERY important actually.
