Default New to Nitro RC's!

I am getting a Nitro RS4 Racer from a friend of mine very cheap and it already has quite a bit of stuff done to it such as a ball bearing diff, either carbon fiber chassis or aluminum chassis, a .12 motor. I can't wait to get it so I can start modding the hell out of it. Here is some of the questions that I have:

1. He told me that he has seen a '98 Mustang Cobra body for the RS4 in 200mm but I can't seem to find a link to it. Anyone?

2. I am planning on putting a 2-speed tranny in it. Where is a good place to get one.

3. What suspension should I upgrade on it?

4. What kind of tires should I get and I am looking for some sweet looking wheels?

This is mainly just going to be another fun hobby for me mainly because my main hobby is my '97 Mustang GT. I am really not looking to do this competitively yet. If I do decide to later then I will probably be buying something a whole lot better!

Default Is This Close Enough?

It's an HPI Saleen Mustang in 200mm...

I don't think there's a 200mm version of the Cobra. Tamiya makes a 190mm version of the Cobra

McCallister Racing Bodies makes a 2003 Cobra body, but its 190mm. Hpi makes a Cobra body but its for micros, but they also make a Saleen Mustang body in 200mm.

Where can you notice the difference? 190 - 200? Can it be made to work with the RS4?

you're going to notice the diference at the wheels. You won't be able to fit the wheels inside of the wheel wells.
