comment Fix for monorail sticking at monoswitch?
Good. How about the switch faces? Are they worn? Is there a groove?

The trains motors have Nylon gears too. I'll edit the answer.

It sounds like you have the wrong NXT release. Where did you get that v2.1? Can you give the link?

Assuming of course that it is an accepted countermeasure in that competition. :)

comment What is the official term used for building MOC models?
I agree with 'build' and 'building' has a general term. That's what I use even when I'm building an actual Set.

comment Apart from the LEGO brick, is there any other hardware that has an NXT firmware written for it?
Exactly right. There is no LEGO NXT firmware that works on other devices than the original LEGO NXT brick. Since @frazras was also interested in accessing the wealth of hardware available in the generic electronic community, I've added a couple of alternatives.

comment Lego Mindstorms RCX RIS 2.0 IR tower Windows 7 / Windows XP driver
Do you also have a PC with a Linux install? That is how I'm using my old RCX 2.0. If you do I'll put up an answer with the Linux info.

comment What LEGO wheels would look like the three types used on the JPL Mars Rovers?
I'm only missing 1 wheel (2x 64711) for the MSL rover so I'll order that online. It won't slow me down too much since I'll start with the small rover and build my way up. I'll probably document the build (or show the result) on my blog.

comment How do I make my own LEGO stickers?
For complex shape I use a Swivel Craft Knife (see the picture in the edit). It's really good for details and curves.

This reminded me of an old BrickVista post where that guy build a Sojourner wheel out of Technic pieces brickvista.com/features/roverWheels/roverWheelsHome.html

Thanks for the links. I'll dig around on Brinklink to see if I can find the right combination of sizes(ratio) and of looks. I'm also interested in the full wheel-tire BTW (not only the wheels).
