I have a granite mega I'm looking to put a brushless motor and esc combo in. Wanting to know what are some combos that would be good. Also wanting to switch to lipos looking for suggestions on what 2s lipos are good and what type of chargers
It is about time we post some 101's here on the forum
First of all the difference between the Mega motor with a ni-mh battery & a brushless BLX motor on a 2S (cell) lipo is night an day!
Now the bad part: which build (year) Granite do you have?
You might have heard the 2015 and newer models have no metal geared transmission anymore?
That means upgrading to brushless will mean also upgrading the whole tranny with gears and differential
If you have a 2013 build, it does have the metal gears.
An alternative could be upgrading to a modest brushless system: something on 2S and 2700-3000kV and 40-45Amp Esc.
This will give less strain on your composite gears and differential, but still be much, much more powerful and faster than the Mega brushed motor.
I would like to know the same thing... where to get the gears and diff.. and what not.. and want to be able to run 3s.. strickly a basher..
