Default ARRMA Granite 4x4 BLX

I have an Arrma Granite 4x4 BLX running on stock setup 3S and 3200Kv, I'm thinking of replacing the stock ECS with a Tekin RX8 Gen 1 or 2 that I already have. Are there any part that I should upgrade?

What's wrong with the stock ESC? What is not doing for you? You can use a Hobbywing program card for the stock ESC. I forget which one though. Razor from Razor RC did a video on his channel about using the program card. Maybe he'll chime in here, or go to his YouTube channel

There's nothing wrong with the stock ESC, if the RX8 provided better performance I was going to change it.

RX8 isn't going to do anything, the stock ESC is more than enough for bashing. Speed is limited by motor, not ESC (unless your ESC is underpowered, which the BLX100 is not!).

Yea, would really want to update the motor as well. Big advantage the rx8 would have is being able to use a sensored motor. Something you dont really “need” for bashing.

So my suggestion for other parts would be a sensored motor.

I was thinking about the adjustability of RX8, and getting a sensored motor.
