The TA05 VDF is a drifting chassis. If that's what you want to do, then it's not a bad choice. If you want to race on tracks, maybe consider a TT-02 Type-S or a regular TA05 or TA06 instead.

After the chassis, you'll need a radio, steering servo, speed control (also called an ESC), motor, batteries, charger, and probably a body (and paint for it). Your local hobby shop should help you get going, or you can order stuff from one of the many online shops.

Here's a good website to look at for reviews and information: http://www.thercracer.com
There is a build-up of a racing TT-02 which is a great starting point for beginners.
