i have a friend how has a TB02 and he have a duratrax auto sport farward only ESC (the limit is 20 turn) and he wants to run a 19 turn element on his esc would it blow up or woulld it work and his gear ratio is 6:22 and he can't afford another esc so it's either do or die so would it work couse he doesn't want to blow it up.

I wouldn't chance blowing the esc. It's better to run slower than not at all.

It may work for awhile. Eventually the current pull from the motor will fry the FETs inside the ESC.
