Actually it's amps that kill electric motors. You could hook a million volt battery on there and if you keep the amps under the correct rating it's fine. The issue is that usually, at full throttle the ESC is applying the full force of the battery voltage. You can go a little bit over the amperage limit for takeoff and then if you don't hit full throttle again, and you are sure you're under the amp limit, it will be fine. Amps fry things... volts are related, but not the number you need to look at.
