If you want good takeoff and better skids go 3.9 or 4.11 gearing.

For the wheels, you can put up to el straight on, au onwards require hub adapters but some say they are dangerous.

To fix lining you need to purchase some new cloth with foam backing..
Take liner out by undoing internal lights, sun visors etc..
Then pull the rest off and vacuum the foam that's come away..
To put it back together either buy spray can with spray on contact glue
or take it to upholstery shop..Did mine for about $80.00
