Buy an ESE roller, the plastic is stiffer so it handles better.

Put a gear diff in it if you don't want to mess with the ball diff, aluminum rear camber link because the plastic one breaks quickly, and the STRC steering rack or upgraded HPI steering rack because the plastic one sucks.

What motor and ESC do you plan on running?

I would look at the Hub Carriers from RPM front and rear because of the oversized bearings. Maybe, I don't know the RTR one holds up, STRC Camber Plate. The HPI or STRC steering rack system, AE sprint kit front and rear, ditch the upper spring cups if you do. I think that will get you a pretty good start and then past that you can customize it further to your liking. If you want a ball diff most say that the MIP one is a lot better, HPI also changed the ESE kit to it.
Good Luck,
Blake

It's a good truck, but you will want to shore up the steering. I would get the ESE if you can. If you get the RTR, the following upgrades are recommended:

STRC steering rack with bearings
ESE arms, towers, and hubs
STRC pivot block
10k Diff Fluid for the gear diff.
Better Servo
Tighten the servo saver
