After mutch thought, The most usefull tools I have in my tool box would be:
#1 Olfa stainless steel knife, When it comes to trimming a wing, it will shave down to .1mm of wing at a time (can cut a body out and mount it in 5min)
and a tie for #1...my circle cutter
#2 EDS tools
#3 Xray clutchbell pinion tool(not used mutch, but handy when you need it)
Am I going back racing?...Hmmm.. Not anytime soon... But soon enough.

The dremel !
I have for 15 years already a Proxxon multi tool working on 12 volt (starter box) and is a must for repairs and building parts. At home I have a 220 volt version and a drillstand.
Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.

Sometimes you need to be delicate and sometimes you need brute force. Therefore I go with my calipers and my monster pair of channel locks.

Actually my most important tool is my Snap On tuning screwdriver.

The Milwaukee 2.4V adjustable driver with adjustable torque setttings, 2-speed, and charger. Small enough to keep in the tool box without sacraficing too much room. Along with the ofna hex adaptors; you're DIALED !! Simply the best and most often used.
