Anyone Found any "Do It Yourself" Mods for ZipZaps?

I picked up my ZipZaps and accessories yesterday, I think they are pretty good....I was wondering if anyone has done any "do it yourself" mods to it, like the bit mods on questformadness.com....I personally replaced the telescpoing attena with a much bigger one, and soon I will replace the attena on the car itslef....since the fastest motor they have is 2.35 I was wondering if anyone figured any mods out??? I tried putting my 3.0 bit motor in there, it worked, but I had to push start it, it would never go on its own, I even tried tons of gear combinations....oh well....

So far I've:

- Taken the wheels (front and rear) from the ZZ and put them on my Bit
- Taken the front wheels from my Bit and put them on my ZZ
- Used the Stabilizers, Gears and Motors of the ZZ on my Bit

You can see some of the pics and mods in my Gallery: HERE

zz mods

tried a dual battery mod
worked on the charger
but spun for about 10 seconds
after 3 charges
(my dual bit runs for about 10 minutes
on the same charger)
then somethingwent pop
and the circuit board is dead
(motor and batteries fine)
the next step is to try
the pc board from a bullet
i'll post pics when and if
it works
