Well almost all rc cars have upgrades that you can put on them. As far as what cars have the most upgrades. Well the Slash comes to mind. The t4.2 comes to mind. Idk. You can upgrade any car to make it unique.

Well I have an fs flysky fs gt2 transmitter and receiver and find it very very good.. I got it directly from seller from Hong Kong for 7.99 pounds, it is very simple, extremely responsive and has a very good range. I can't believe for such a good piece of kit it was soooo ridiculously cheap

I also got this servo for my steering and find it great

I am running this motor and esc

and have a ta06 pro chassis with many hop'd up optional extras

If you have a look on eBay you could always get a good combination of motor and esc from Asia, I got this one and paid a little premium as I wanted it quickly

Transmitter and receiver yes, but the motor will vary depending on chassis type and size, a lot of the chassis are suitable for a 540 size motor which is what this is too

for example i like the TT01E chassis so i would put that transmitter and reciver on it and what motor and esc can i put on it it already comes with one but i want a better one on it it fits 540 sized motor what could be a cheap brushless motor and esc system to put in it? and what would be a good batter to use.

hey, alot of the cheaper "plug and Play" motor and Esc combos will fit but they dont last as they arent as well made or as resillient as some of the slightly more expensive ones.. its a false ecomony buying cheap parts when they will need replacing more often.. or be a smooth or as controllable.. so if you are prepared to spend some money spent it here.. also if you decide to go brushless go for sensored as they are better.. and you will also need to decide on what you are doing with the car, racing or drifting and depending on this decisions will change the motor combination and esc that you will need.
