Will the castle creations esc work with the stock traxxas velineon motor?
Or would the upgraded 3s work fine? Im trying to get more speed and I have been told that I should upgrade my esc. What should I do?

You'd need to specify which ESC, but I know the Sidewinder SV3 and Mamba Max Pro work great.
Esc wont make it faster. Just make able to handle taller gearing without the esc overheating
but if he did got to the MMP could he run 4s safe?
Not on a stock VXL motor.
You could for short speed runs, just keep eyes on temps. I have ran 4s with 10 back to back drag races from a good 10mph roll and motor wasn't even warm to the touch...stock esc...not so much. Next time I plugged a battery in esc went up in smoke!
