Even stock motors overdraw AA-sized IMR's though. They provide the right voltage, but they cannot supply the current (amperage) demands of even stock motors at stock voltage. Raising the voltage raises the current draw, and stock and aftermarket motors all draw more current than AA-size IMR's are rated to supply.
At best, it'll work for a while before burning up your switches and/or battery tray (which isn't designed to supply more current either). At worst, they'll blow out and melt/ignite your blaster.

I've run my stock motor stryfe on 3 efest Imrs for quite a while now with no problems. Sure its not ideal but its a lot better than stock. I'm sure my 3 imrs will burn the stock motors out faster than most would like but mine have lasted a while now, and I'm sure stepping down to 2 imrs would increase motor life, and will still be much better than stock aa batteries
The risk isn't just burning out the motors, it's burning out the batteries. If they burn out, they can burn a hole in the blaster or ignite it wholesale.
