We'll need a little more info to be able to really help you.

What are you planning on building? Any idea what All Up Weight you are shooting for?

Those first 2 questions will help you determine what motor size and battery size you'll want to use. Once you've decided on a motor and voltage, then you can match the ESC to that.

Looking at their posts, possibly for:

1/16 50 ton excavator (4)
1/16 Bruder fire truck (4)
Malaysian fast patrol boat (2)
Large scale tractor trailer unit (1)

What size motors does it use?

I would guess a HobbyWing 1060 or 1080 would be plenty....if that's a brushed motor....not sure if it's brushless...

Posion Motor?

https://www.carson-modelsport.com/ca...906023-en.html

Brushed 540 size can. Calling it a "puller" so i'm guessing 45 turn or higher?
So any Brushed ESC rated for 540/550 motors is plenty for it
