E-maxx motor upgrades

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Just got an old E-maxx 3906. I was wondering what would happen if I through a pair of 12 turn modified 540 motors in it? The ESC says it has a 10 turn 540 motor limit. Would I fry the motors or ESC in the first 10 seconds? I'm pretty sure the 540's will have way more rpm then the 550's in it already. I don't have the money to go brushless right now considering all my other projects I've seen at a few hobby shops brand new 12 turn for $15 I was hoping if I geared it up a little it would all work out. I already have a tonne of lipos for it.

Has anyone done something like this? Perhaps with higher turn 540's?
Any insight would be helpful
