These are quickies...
1) Is it a good idea to replace the stock motor in my Overland with a Xmod Gen-1 Stage one motor arm in a BB can? I'll be using my OL for bashing (as usual) and maybe keep with me for anytime RC.

2) If I haven't used the Radioshack NiMh in a few months, should I toss them and get new ones?

3) Since all my Xmods are practically dead, should I consider selling the 4 I don't use (keep the one with sedimental value) and get a MA-010 Chassis set then mount an xmod body? I have an Atomic SS motor I could put in there.

Well I want the tuner body kit look on a Skyline, so would it work to do a chop job by combining the xmod body kit with a autoscale skyline?

Get one of the AutoScale Skyline bodies that have the tuner look already...there are a couple, I think.

I think this is the one you are looking for though, it looks alot like the X-Mod version.

Dunno, those are either too stock looking or too JGTC.

I'd rather not bother buying a new autoscale and just put my Skyline on it.

it can be done, all you need is a body mount set for the PN Pan Car body and some CA

Mkay, another quickie. If I want to stretch Lego tires onto the stock rims, should I remove the outer ring on the rim?

1) lego tires are used on overlands for bling, and not much purpose
2) there is no outer ring on mini-z Wheels
