Default If you were going to the Nitro Pit What would you take?

Well I'm seriously contemplating going to the Nitro Pit for the Big race coming up in Feb. I was wondering what is the standard equipment everyone takes to big races like this? All i have planed in my head is
Pit table W/chairs
Extension cords
Pit mat
Pit Light
EZ Up
Battery with converter
Ice Chest
And of course my truggy with all of my gear. Anything else I'm missing? thanks

I usually bring everything that I can think of. Dont forget your dremmel tool and soldering iron(just in case). My motto is it is better to have it and not need it that to need it and not have it. Good luck

i live in az and im here weekly so heres my .02

Pit table W/chairs- if you can get here early enough on wed you can grab a table, they have electrical ran to them, you will need a chair tho
Extension cords-good to have just in case, but like i said electrical are ran to most of the tables
Pit mat- yes, and a setup board if you have it, the tables here are a little warped due to them being wood and outside, but they are perfectly usable
Pit Light- yes
EZ Up -yes
Battery with converter- not necessary, but if you want to
Ice Chest- keep hydrated in az, it can sneak up on you quick

Bring a Beer Koozie and don't let the owners of the pit see you with beer trust me I get yelled at every time I am there

the track is great just bring a chair EZ up and your gear and you are good to go. Try and get there early because alot of people fly in for the race so the tables go fast but most people pit at there RV's and there is Factory lane and that is outside the fence. It rains about every other year so you should be good to go this year because it flooded last year.

Everything but your transmitter lol so when you see the place you can just go back home. jk, I have seen this happen though travel and once there you notice you forgot the main equipment like car/ radio.
