Default Evader EP moter upgrade?

HI, I am new to R/C and new to this board. I bought a used Evader recently. It came with a Novak Explorer 2 ESC. I was wondering what kind of moter I could look for to upgrade to...maybe a 15 or 17 turn moter. I was wondering how strong of a moter this ESC could handle. Suggestions with part numbers included would be real helpful.
Another question does anybody make detail stickers for bodies ie: headlights and grills and taillights?

For bodies i think some of the proline shells will fit that are made for other vehicles, you should go to your LHS and see what they can match up to your vehicle or you can order some clear bodies for your vehicle as well that are made by duratrax.

As for motors, I would look into getting a good 19 turn motor unless you plan to race. For racing you will want a stock motor to start with. Look for a motor that is more torque based.

The only place i've seen headlight and grill decals is with a new body. Tower has tons of sponser, flame, and other decals, though.

The Losi xxcr body will fit the Evader Bx but it looks similar to the Duratrax one.Motors: go for the P2K2 PRO they have excellent torque and a lot of people recomend them in Evaders.
