My Granite Voltage only drives FOWARD and not Reverse, and a Burning Smell is coming from the ESC. I have some ideas about what to do and I would like some help pls.

Reverse FETS are fried. What was some of your ideas? A new ESC?

I was thinking the ESC was damaged somehow because it smelled burnt and got really hot only after driving it for 1 minute. What are some options for a new ESC for the Granite Voltage other than a new stock one?

You can also find a combo with motor fairly inexpensive.
Consider mounting a small fan onto the HS and plug it into your reciever if possible, or find a an ESC that has a fan already. 80am-120 amp esc's usually do.
If you change out the motor to a brushed Ball Bearing raced type vs. stock brass bushing type, they tend to run cooler also. Cooler motors usually mean cooler ESC's in Brushed motor setups.
