A droop gauge a setup board would be good as well. You don't need a setup station but it would help. Eventually a motor lathe and a tire lathe but those are later, more advanced items.

These are some more handy items:
De-solder vacuum and de-solder braid are a good idea.
General spares from weak points on your car (spindles, hubs, arms etc,) tuning options (springs, oils etc,) wire, connectors, bearing lube, motor cleaner, thread lock....... The list goes on forever!
