TA - Medium Level Kit (belt driven)

TRF - High End Tourer

No. Some parts may be used in different chassis but not many.

Not worth it. With that money, use it to buy a better chassis.

I have a TT01 and for amateur racing/bashing, it's more then good. If you like it...maybe you'll buy a better car/chassis later.

Both brands are very good. They both also offer entry level cars as well as top end racers. Your choice depends on what you intend to do.

The TT01D is the Drift version. Now, will you be drifting, or racing?

I would get the D version.
It has oil shocks, ball bearings, 25T motor, adjustable suspension camber, etc..
For "racing", replace only the tires and that's it.
