The amperage is what your looking for to handle the type of motor for that esc...........the higher the amperage the more choices of motors you can run with that esc. For example you would never run a 20amp motor on a 7amp bl esc.......

A micro esc like the Novak Spy and such....but if you plan to run any hotter motors in the future then go with a 10th scale esc....that will do the job for any micro motor thats out there now.

The most a stock micro motor will pull would be about 5amps or less....a mod 300 would be about 10amps.......and plus when you take a look at the package of the esc it would tell you the frequency and the amperage of the esc.......

What kind of esc are you using now.....Yes you can use that esc with that motor, you should have no problem at all.

Just as long as you break traction you should be fine, as for gearing i use 16/44. And what esc do you plan on using with the 45t mod motor.
