Default Kyosho Turbo Optima

I am working on a 1987 Kyosho Turbo Optima (chain drive awd). I'm currently running a 17t Reedy Radon brushed motor and am thinking of upgrading to brushless.
I am kicking the idea of running a 60A esc with 10t or 12t but am wondering if I will simply destroy this car with this setup.
I'd like to go big as it will be transplanted to the new car once I settle on one.
I've seen videos with 5.5t in off-road cars, but am wondering if they will lack the torque. Don't think I will go that low however.
