Help!
New to hobby... ESC question

I purchased a second hand crawler and it has a NOVATECH RTR-12 ESC in it. Is this LiPo safe? How good of an ESC is it, should I replace it or use it till it dies?
Hanks for the help. I got it for my 4 year old daughter and I to play with. She loves my Jeep... Refuses to use the doors since she was 3. She insists on climbing up the rear tires and over the tub to get into her car seat. So she is going to go bonkers over this.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

you got it, use it till it dies. from what i can find it's a chinese knockoff. i don't think it has a built in lipo cutoff, so you would have to add one. says it'll work up to 7.4v (2s lipo).

not sure if it has a drag brake, or even if it is programmable. just not that much info out there that i could find.

run it till it smokes, and then replace it with something better.
