Default Custom Skyline Gen1 Chassis Parts

Hey guys new here and building a custom one off project. Using a Gen1 Xmods chassis as a base ( just the mechanical components ) and need some info on brushless speed controllers.

Purpose of the car is for fun, not legit racing or anything, more so to build it , mostly top speed runs and goofing around on an epoxy floor. Looking to break 60 mph ( I have aero ideas in mind to stop it from taking flight )

Here's the project so far :

Custom carbon fiber pan chassis - still a work in progress
GPM alloy everything that moves or could be stressed
mini z wheels

Losi LOSB9593 Brushless Combo 2.4-GHz Receiver/8750-
Kv Motor/ESC
Futaba S3154 servo
Using a 1:24 Skyline GTR model car for body

I have received the Losi kit and am wondering if I'm gunna out grow the micro brushless motor. Wondering if I can wire in an additional brushless ESC to install a larger brushless motor ( along the lines of a 20mm bodied ) . My thought is if I can wire the Losi 3 wire motor wiring to the additional ESC signal wiring will that send the proper signal to drive it ? Or should I look into revamping the whole setup if the Micro Losi brushless finds itself to small for the project ? Will post up pictures once I have something to show , still waiting on my carbon fiber panel to start the build.



Sorry just realized this post should have been in the Mini and Micro section, could a mod please move it. Sorry for the mistake.
