Default Thinking about getting an rc HPI street/drift car.

I have been thinking about getting an rc car, possibly an HPI E10 chassis, but I have some questions.
1-How interchangeable would wheels be on the HPI chassis?
2-Could I change springs/shocks to get more ground clearance? I know this is the on-road forum, but I would like to run it in the dirt; and have more ground clearance, like a 60s-70s muscle car. Would increasing the suspension height affect the axle shafts or steering?
3-Related to the old muscle car style, could I, if i wanted to, replace the rear part of the chassis with a c channel frame with a solid rear axle? This is not a deal breaker, but it is something I would like to keep in mind.
If anyone has any answers, or suggestions of some other car, I would appreciate it.

Read the e10 forum or the rs4 sport 3 forum for a better idea.
