the brushless motor you have is 1/18 scale and that esc says its for 1/18th scale so it should work fine.

depends on the kv rating on the motor, take the motor out and see if it has any markings on it.

Ok I will do some looking around for the trans ratio for that and try to figure out a rough guess for top speed.

Kv is a rating for rpm per volt so for example if your motor has a 4000kv rating you take 4000x the amount of volts your putting into it and that's how many rpm the motor will spin with no load on it.

your motor has a 5200kv rating and your lipos will top out at 8.4 volt so your looking at around 43680rpm and after some rough math your looking at around 40 mph give or take depending on gearing, that thing should be a handful to drive.

The 7.4 lipo will actually be 8.4v when fully charged, as far as converting rpm to mph it not that simple. You have to know transmission gear ratio, tire height, motor rpm and from there you just have to know how to convert it all to mph. It also helps that I have a friend with the same car with a little bigger system in it that tops out at 55.
