The heat simply transfers into the block and even into the chassis itself. My block will heat up to about 185*F after 10 minites. When heat saturates into the chassis it truly heats the motor up. When using a heat gun, you don't get that heat in the chassis as easy and the motor cools very fast after your done using the heat gun.

I have two things in my pit bag that's a must. A bottle of anti-acid and hemmoroid cream.

Heat soak, as it warms the head it makes it way down to the block. This will be the next tool in my toolbox.

My Craftsman mini cordless screwdriver. I used to do beadlock wheels by hand!

We were just talking the other day about how devastating it would be to lose your main pit bag full of tools and stuff! It would take a year to replace all the little specialty tools and things you collect over the years.

I love my drill chuck that fits in my electric screwdriver. It's a popular item and a life saver if you're in a bind.

The engine heater works awesome!
I'd have to go with my chewing gum, so I keep my whits while running in an intense race or Kalgard Prep and Shine.

I have a Philips #2 screwdriver I bought at a ghandi mart across the street from an RC track in 1989. I have rarely used it over the years but it reminds me of racing when I was a young when I look at it in my pit box!
