I noticed mine had a fair bit of bluey smoke coming out of the car looked to be running rich, idle was good seemed to have plenty of get up and go I tried leaning out the ls but the revs went up so countered with the idle screw just adjusting a little but did not seem to do it any good ????

Check the pinion gear holder, if it's damaged the spur like that, I'd say your holder has overheated and warped, it's common with Baja's. Replace it with an alloy unit, and you'll never have the same issue again

Yep, it should. But it won't. Now your only problem will be the front wheel clips

Nah, only break fix after that. Generally replace a broken part with a stronger than stock part. But remember to keep a sacrificial part, generally something that's easy to replace

Wheel extenders, or do the wheel clip mod, just google hip baja wheel clip mod.

IMHO, just get the dark soul extenders, the mod is already done to them, only minor work to get it done.

I'd recommend a 1-8 Truggy, tough as nails and great on all terrain.

Throw up your car on the forsale section here too.
