Default Kyosho 1:8 scale, What are the best mods?

Any interest in the old Kyosho 1:8 scale motorcycles? I have always loved these things, they build like plastic models and I love to paint and detail them. Not the fastest things out of the box but they can still be fun to race others. I have the older one shown below from the 80’s, I got it on eBay with the receiver and servo for $100! The guy selling it didn’t know it had the radio gear in the box, the kit was untouched, I assembled and painted it. I also have the newer Hanging on Racer Honda, almost done with that one, got it from a guy in Hong Kong for $65, not bad. What are some of the modifications done on these bikes? I saw one dude who put a glow engine in his!
