* The difference between 190mm and 200mm refers to the width of the car. EP cars are 190mm and GP cars are 200mm. But you can fit the 200mm body shell in your E10. You just need maybe a 10mm offset wheels.
* Settings i will leave it up to you. When i bought my TT-01D RTR. I left my settings the way it was. It drifted well. But now slightly i have changed. I locked the rear differentials. See what suits u best.
* Yes it is possible to have leds with your E10. Just ensure ur bodyshell has light buckets. If not you need to custom make your own light bucket. Buy some led lights and LED light unit. Can find in almost all hobby shops.

Rubber tires provide grip and are used for touring. U won't be able to drift with them. Some ppl use PVC on road surface bec it cheap. U can use t-drift on road but will more heart-pain bec it's more expensive.

Choose the type of tyres for the kind of surface and the speed you want to drift. PVC can be used on smooth surface as well, but the drifting speed will be slow as traction is minimal. Your car will only be wheel spinning.

Whats the difference between using a alummiun shaft rather den the stock shaft .. and also is all motors fit for HPI E10 ? Does changing the Tx & Rx will make a better car ?

Most 1/10 size cars use 540 size motors. Your E10 as well. The aluminium shaft is considered a better option bec it will flex lesser than a standard plastic shaft. Less flex will mean more power. Changing tx & rx I think is good if you intend to stay in the hobby for long. You have more options to fine tune the car and to save multiple settings if you have other cars in the future. my two cents...

I use a 3PM on 75Mhz. rx I use Futaba 75mhz R203HF HRS receivers. Good tx include 3PK, M11, DX3R. Still it boils down to preferrences and budget. Good tx costs between 300 - 600 bucks.
