my guess the answer is yes and no...you should be able to get rid of the ESC, and control the motor via that L293B motor shield, that is what the shield is for anyway.... however you are going to have to replace that Titan 12T with something else, this motor draws around 20-25amps of power while the according to L293B only output 1Amp, so you dont want to BBQ the shield.
I assume you drive the gearbox with one motor? so consider replace that motor with something less powerful (around 1amp). at the sametime it has energy to drive the gearbox.
something like this one maybe, (specs from ebay)

Add this to the download page! Item number 4 in the upper left.
Good to know how to erase, but if you were lazy like I am, mine got stuck nemerous times, simply unplug the USB cable while it is stuck and replug back in, wait for all driver loaded up then try again, that will alway work for me too.
This is not just NetDuino issue but FEZ also has this dissease, I guess microsoft vs and hardwares team are still having some small problem understanding each other...
