This a good base chassis for VTA or USGT. Look to those rules or see what classes they are racing locally.

If you're just bashing, then rubber tires and new wheels are pretty much all you'll need.

If you're racing, depends on the class. You could need new of any or all of these: tires/wheels, ESC, motor, body, gears

why does body matter?
Any other upgrades (ex. Ball diff)?

Because most racing classes have body specifications. VTA and TC both have pretty specific requirements. USGT/RCGT are less specific.

Diff really depends on surface and traction. Talk to your co-racers. You may want to change the diff fluid to get more/less action if you stay with the stock gear diffs.
