I think one of the biggest mistakes that new drivers make in this hobby is thinking that the "most bling" car will make them a better driver. As a new driver, use the money that you were going to spend in the upgrade kit on tires and practice time... The box-stock TC4 is still a very capable car - no need for the carbon stuff at this point. Wait until you are able to run a full 5 minutes with minimal contact with the boards or other cars before you worry about upgrading. Spend some time learning what each set-up does (spring rates, droop, camber, caster, toe, etc) and how these set-ups effect your driving.
If you really want to buy an upgrade for your car, buy a full spring set and depending if you are running rubber tires or not - a swaybar set. That is all you will need to get yourself going. It'll take you a couple years at a hobby level before you outdrive the car - and how cool will it be beating all the XRays, and such at your track with a cheaper car.
