Yes I know that you can get gear boxes that have reverse. But I'd assume 
they would set you back a fair bit

>second is there problems with rattle?

I have a nitro(gas) car and it seems fine. It doesn't rattle all that much.

>third would it be likley to have problems with over torque breaking plastic 

If you hooked the motor straight to the tracks with gears it probally would 
break tracks. But you could just add an additional drive stage using some 
sort of belt on a 1/1 ratio.
