    Nikko is good, for nothing. They have some fun cars (Scorpion, ya i own one) but they arnt worth anything for drifting or anything above like 10MPH. I havent heard of anyone making a Nikko of any kind do anything special, but i know its possible... i've done some motherboard mods to many of mine.

    And about hop up parts, good luck. You can call up nikko and maby get a bit faster of a motor, or a new motherboard, but anything else is all on you. The best thing to do would be junk the insides and put in your own servos, esc's and transmitter to get rid of that wire.

    Search google for some of that stuff... i could explain it, but it would be long and drawn out, and without pictures it would be hard.

    But seing as how your having problems with doing a project like that, i would accually just advise you to wait and buy a hobby level kit or rtr
