Need help finding a new motor for my Losi MSC-MXPro ESC!

I have a Losi MSC-MXPro ESC (http://www.msuk-forum.co.uk/topic/12...ed-controller/), will the Caste Creations Neu-Castle 1512 1Y 2650kv motor fit this ESC? I use 4s batteries.

That is a motor intended for 1/8-scale applications and the speed control is intended for 1/10 running 540 size motors. I would not do it.

It seems to be intended for SCTs, so it might come closer to 1/8 spec than regular 1/10 controllers. It appears to be a rebadged Mamba Max Pro.

What vehicle is it going in? You should be ok as long as it's geared properly.

It will be used in a Team Associated RC-8. If the motor and the ESC is not a perfect match, what is the worst thing that can happen?

Worst thing one or both will overheat, and become permanently damaged. Though most ESC have overheat protection so the motor is at risk mostly.
