Questions?? Rc Drifting Questions

Hello everyone I'm new to this website and I have a couple of questions about rc drift cars. This is probably going to be a long post just a warning. First of all the hex that is on my drift car currently is 7mm. I want to convert it to a 12mm hex to fit standard RC wheels so i can easily change them(and the tires because they seem to be wearing down pretty fast). How do I convert my hex's from 7mm to 12mm? Second I want to find an RC body that is 200mm big but preferably a Nissan Silvia S13 coupe or a Nissan Silvia S14, i can't find any bodies that are 200mm wide and that are also reasonably priced. Any suggestions would be great. That's pretty much it so thanks, any suggestions, questions or advice would be great, I'm new to the whole RC drifting scene so I'm not great at it.

Knowing what car your current using will help people figure out which hexes you'll need

not sure about their returns department, but they are competitively priced and always ship stuff quickly. they are great about getting orders out ASAP.
the only complaint I have with them is backorders. I had some stuff back ordered, they got it in stock and didn't fill my back orders before taking new orders of said product.

I've been ordering from tower for years and have never had a single problem, personally I've never back ordered anything so can't say anything about that.

If it's in stock they will ship fast

Silvia S13 and S14 bodies are made by Yokomo and D-Like, very well detailed but not cheap. If you want cheap your only option is the S13 and S14 bodies from R2 Hobbies.

Its been a while and I've learned a little more about rcs, I still have the same rc car (exceed drift star) no upgrades or anything just some new wheels and tires, I want to upgrade to a brushless setup, I have one that I'm looking at and people said its good for my car, it comes with an esc programmer, a brushless esc and a 13t 3000kv brushless motor, but the motor I have right now is a 29t is that bad if the amount of turns go down that much? And I don't know how much mAh the new esc will be capable of because the battery i have now sucks. The esc combo is on nitrorcx but it won't let me post links.
