    If you're looking for a little more speed, you could get Tamiya's sport tuned motors. If you want a lot more speed you could go with a high voltage(14v to 16v) system with either the Traxxas evx2 or HPI GT as the ESC and the Traxxas titan motors made for the e-revo(one is reversed).

    They don't have any timing advance, so they'll be fine running in forward OR reverse.

    Not that I'm aware of. Maybe that's why I don't remember seeing any with SUV bodies.

    The diameter of screws and bolts are measured by the thickness of the threaded portion(measured on top of the threads, not in the thread grooves). The length is measured by the length of the screw that will be below the surface it's screwed into. So on countersunk screws, the length includes the head. On all others, the length only goes up to the bottom of the head.

    540 size motor screws are almost always 3mm diameter.

    Did you upgrade all the plastic bushings to ball bearings? The clicking could be drive shafts wobbling from the extra slop cause by worn bushings.

    Well, I guess try running only one motor/gearbox at a time slowly (with the wheels off the ground) to see which gearbox is making the noise. When you find it, remove the drive shafts and run it slowly again. If the noise stops, it isn't the gearbox, if it continues, it is the gearbox. It is possible that one of your bearings picked up some debris(usually only with teflon shielded bearings). I ran one of my cars in dirt and the teflon bearings in the rear got dirt in it and made a crunchy grinding noise.
