There is only so many things it can be, but it's probably the Driveshaft Coupling.

Blade/dogbone: Is worn, has too much play inside the diff outdrive
Diff Bearings: When turning all the diff bearings get a workout
Wheel/Axle Bearings: Again, when turning, the bearings are under load

Driveshaft Coupling and/or Driveshaft: Badly worn from excessive use, excessive turning, and/or poor maintenance. The coupling can wear and decrease in size, causing play inside the driveshaft, as well as casuing wear the inside of the driveshaft, thus enlarging the hole inside the driveshaft. If this happens, a new coupling piece will only help a little in reducing the chatter here.

Looking at perhaps picking up a new T2 008 EU spec.

The two tracks I would run at are both indoor, one carpet and one is asphalt.

What would most of you say would be necessary hop ups?

strangely enough, mainly crash parts, car out of the box is great. Springs one up one down from stock, same with swaybars. Shock oil, spool outdrives, half shafts, cvd coupler, spur gears to get to the ratio for your class, and the lil washers for adjusting toe, and track width, maybe some different roll center spacers. Most tracks its pretty close. alot closer than the t2007. well thats for asphalt, haven't run the car on carpet yet.
