Xcelorin Brushless ESC

After installing Losi's Lipo battery in my Micro T for one run, the ESC is on it's way out. I unscrewed it from the chassis and flipped it over to find where the magic smoke was coming from. The ESC is ok going forward(not like it was when I ran it the first time, but still working), but reverse causes smoke off one of the IC chips.

I figure it's a better to upgrade than to replace with the same part the breaks. So, is it possible to use the Brushless ESC from Losi to run the stock brushed motor without any other changes to the truck? I love the way it runs on the Lipo and will never go back to the NiMH battery again. The full on brushless conversion is more money than I want to spend on the truck as well.
