Default Need some part suggestions

I'm running a Traxxas Jato.

First up, I'm after a recommended clutch bell and spur gear. Just tooth sizes, because I can find them on my own, mostly after speed.
And second, these Anaconda tires suck. Could someone please recommend a set of 4, preglued tires? Or even just 2 different sets for back and front if it's better. I do a bit of road, but mostly want for loose dirt. No so much after fashion or anything, price isn't a serious problem, but I don't want to go buy aluminum rims with expensive tires.

Last thing, I don't think it exists, but a metal transmission case? Several screws mount the transmission to the chassis, and 2 of the screws mount to the engine. After taking these screws out a few times, it threads the plastic, and you need a new case (serious PITA).

Thanks in advance.

Omfg, I just found a billet gear box (I spent 30 mins on the Google machine at one point). After 2 minutes on the Integy site, I found it.
