My new motor, my first, is recommended to use 7.4V. The LIFE batteries are 6.6V or 9.9V. I dont want to under voltage the motor but even more so I dont want to over voltage it. I assume there will be some voltage drop through the ESC but have no experience. So I am asking you experienced players for help before I commit to buy..
And it wont be the last time I'm sure.

Voltage rating is more for the bearings in the motor,I/E 1000kv motor@
10 volts=10,000 rpm max.were as a 4500 would be 45,000 the wire and all can take a lot more then most ESC.most low voltage rated motors are high
KV motors.IF it is a cheap motor this = cheap bearings.Youcould replace
them and run it at higher voltage.You should be ok at the 9.9V just repect wide open runs.check load with amp meter,heat and high speed=dead motor.
