Definetly cut away the portion of the trans case above the motor. Cheap motor cooling that takes very little time/effort

I have also done that. In addition to add some protection to the motor endbell I have added an RPM B/T 3 rear bumper/motor guard. Took a bit of shaving to fit and a pair of self tapping screws but it worked slick. I have also drilled out the stock rims using a 27/64 or .422 drill bit to save on rotating mass. That helped out too.

I just enlarged the small holes that came already in the off-white rims. I started with a bit that was just a bit bigger than the stock hole and worked up to a 27/64 or .422 size bit. It seemed to help. I'd have a pic to email but the USB on my CPU is on the fritz.

I found a way to use CVD's. part number is on the way. I was using some random cvds i had around.

Seems to increase speed a bit on the oval. Not sure how this will work off road, tho..

When you do the rims, make sure that you don't hit anything but the hole you want to drill. A buddy of mine tried this and wasn't paying attention. He drilled the holes out, and the rest of the rim all the way through from front to back!

Note:

The CVD mod killed my diff. I guess its back to the plastic shafts.
