    Welcome to the forum, yes with awd you have to go in 4's, also with the power try stage 2 plus there are other power adders you can look into to get power

    No appearance should affect performance. Unless you add stickers, then you can gain serious power

    The only way to change the outward appearance to improve performance would be to add the biggest wing you can find & maybe some canards.If you do not plan on doing any of those you are fine.

    You can do that, but how often do you order a pizza and throw half in the garbage before eating your first slice?

    Shaving tires is a bad idea. A tire that has worn through heat cycling and true road wear is different than one worn by a machine. Even if you can get them to the exact wear pattern they won't continue to wear evenly
