the plastic thing is actually a cover for the auto clutch, belt tensioner, and engine mount.
no need to buy a special wheel, any 26 inch 36 spoke wheel will work. dont worry about breaking anything... it's super solid. once that drive wheel clips on... it's not coming off. you would literally have to rip all 36 spokes out at once to break it or a spkoe. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that kind of trauma would break more than just the wheel.
the power delivery is very smooth and there is very little vibrations with this kit. you must have a sold axle with this kit... no quick disconnect
