I have read where most ESC's will have a LVC around 5 v.
Many do. A lot don't. The best ones base the cutoff on the battery voltage when they're first fired up, so as to not over-discharge the drive battery. This is more important as the cell count goes up.
Even those that do have a fixed cut off (common in inexpensive ones) vary widely from about 4.5V to nearly 6.
I haven't had a GWS ESC so I can't say what it is, but I'd expect it to be somewhere between 5.0 and 6.0V.
