Sidewinder 5700 gearing

I have a rustler with sidewinder 5700 and am getting top speed in the sixties but am shooting for 75 . My current hearing is 23/83 and I'm thinking about 25/86. I did a calculator and I will get about five more mph. Will this new gearing cause the esc to overheat. Any help appreciated.
Thank you

That all depends on how hot it's currently getting, how hot it is outside and how long you're running it for..

you should also run a heatsink on the motor and ESC and maybe cut holes in the body (front and back) so there's more air flow.
