well we are in the same boat, I just moved and have had my car sitting on the shelf. As far as equipment it all depends on how serious you are about racing. I take my charger, two battery packs, my solder gun (sp), tools, tires, and spare parts. But you can get more answers in the noob section or the racing forum. Good Luck!
