Your current ESC, what Amp is that? Once you find that out, that'll tell you where you need to be as far as getting another one for the spare motor. Too low of an amp, even on a 2S, will kill a ESC quick. Being too high is never a bad thing.

Damn, i thought i could get away with a weaker esc to power this motor, 117 amps is alot its on a VXL esc but the vxl is just so clunky in an on-road car.
