    to determine if the esc will take a 3s lipo ...you need to look up the specs on the exact model you have ..... if the max voltage is less than 11.1v then no .... as far as bodies go... measure your wheel base ..then shop bodies by scale (and check the wheel base specs... anything the right size will work ( may require modifying a mounting system. ) If drag racing is your goal I would look into sensored brushless ESC/motor combos that will handle 4-6 s and have programmable throttle curves .. adjustable timing ...ect maybe even attempt to put a 1:8 size ESC / motor in it ..... with the most rpms u can find or afford ....in brushless higher rpm= higher KV rating
