    esc is the shortend name for, Electronic Speed Control. all they do is electronically control your speed by the commands it gets from ur reciver and puts the comands to ur motor, and/or ur steering.

    Ya, the carb on your nitro motor basically does the same thing as an ESC on an electric motor
