Upgrade to a Pro 2 status: Get carbon fiber deck, anodized parts, etc. Hopefully your hobby shop still carries parts.

They've been discontinued for a while now(3-4 years). You can get a used Pro 2 for like $60-90 on ebay and in the For Sale Forum. But check to see if your Sport already has Bearings... if not get a set that'll make it a little faster and run longer.

there are bearings/bushings on all rotating parts like the axles and diffs.

maybe a graphite chassis and ball diffs are the only thing u need for better performance...maybe a heatsink aswell.

well do you know what the teken g-9 esc is rated for, turn wise? Depending on that you can go down a few turns on your motor for more speed, but then there is more mantinence
