RC "toy" snowmobile conversion, help

Hey guys, my background is in electric planes (I have about 10 right now, all brushless & lipo powered) and nitro 8th scale buggies. But with snow on the ground I thought I would try converting one of the toy snowmobiles from Walmart to RC.

I've seen a few conversions of the Newbright sled, but it's about twice the size of the one I have. I'm venturing onto new ground for me, as I don't know much about brushless/lipo setups for "cars", so this is were I need some help.

I have a spare himax HA2025-5300 installed in place of the stock 300 can motor, and I just picked up a CC Mamba Max ESC (I know it's a little overkill for this, but it was the only "car" brushless ESC in stock at the shop today).
Will this motor work ok, and what type of amps would I probably see in this setup, I need some sort of a ballpark on the amps so I can figure out what mah lipo to run in it. I have a Flightpower Evolite 2500 3s rated at 18c (45 amp cont, 70 amp max) that I think could work, but I would like some input from you guys before I go blowing something up

Please let me know if I'm off target with this setup or not, any knowledgeable advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Jimi
