Question
1/16 Brushless 4WD Monster Beatle from HobbyKing

Hey guys, I have this 1/16 Brushless 4WD Monster Beatle w/ 25Amp System

I have two questions regarding this truck.

1) Which known brand might be interchangable with this Beatle when it came to the body? Even upgrades, if possible. There are multiple plastic parts on this one that I'm sure will break. At this time, what I'm more intestested on is the body and have it painted to match Lighting McQueen looks, however.

2) I've seen some comments regarding people using 3s on this car. How well does it handle 3s lipos? I don't have many 2s lipos but tons of 3s I currently use in planes.

The specs says:
Motor: Brushless Inrunner(2040)
ESC: 25A Brushless (with Reverse)
Battery: 2S LiPo (100x40x25mm MAX SIZE) w/ XT-60 connector [Required]
Servo: 15g Micro
Traction: Full Time 4WD, Twin Diff
Length: 280mm
Width: 210mm
Height: 150mm
Groung Clearance: 20~40mm Adjustable
Top Speed: 40km/h on standard System

Hope you guys can share some knowledge, thanks
