I got an Arrma granite 4x4 blx 3s v3. Right now I am doing a servo upgrade but so far I have loctite the screws, oiled the shocks, reinforced the shell, pumped the shell, etc. But here it is rn.

Running 3s shouldn't be a problem. If needed you could vent them. Check out my build thread. My senton has had a long journey. LMAO
Hey so idk about buying new rc cars yet, it's a little early and if I did get a better extra car, my parents would force me to move out now so... what are some other upgrade I could do?
I know I could get aluminum shocks and maybe throw in a better system for like 6s
But do you have any suggestions?

Nice! MX28's and a REALLY small amount of aluminum/metal parts and you're good!
Looks really solid that's my next

One of my first runs I did a flip over the curb and bashed the rear of the shell in so I got a new one and made sure it wouldn't break.

Alright, my car is back up and running. I threw in the aluminum servo saver and arm with a 20kg servo. I set the calibration for steering and throttle. It's back baby.

I did land a few doubles and nailed backflips. Front flips are still iffy.
I may have accidentally rammed it full throttle on 2s into a concrete wall, the wall had a front bit that was rocky concrete, and the car took a chunk the size of itself out of the wall. The car is fine though.

Ok so... I'm in the process of making an exo frame for the shell. I'm gonna 3d print some custom pieces and use 2 part epoxy to reinforce the broken spots.

Sounds good to me but then I'm kinda a newbie so don't quote me on that
