I don't think there is too much you can do to make it any more 'race ready' I know somebody who races a Vantage & most of it is standard, he does have trouble running brushless with the slipper ie, too much slip, he has had to wind it in so there is no slip at all. Not aware of any upgrade for the slipper though. It does run a 6.5T mind you.

He also thinks there isn't enough steering (travel) but again, that may just be the design & therefore not alot you can do.

I'd run it near on standard, don't run a very hot motor (8.5T maybe) & see how it goes, ok i think you'll find

As far as racing in the NE , it really depends where you are and when you are available.
