I can't race without a Polybutler. Unfortunately, I don't have one.......yet.

When I head for the track on a practice day I bring:
-allen drivers, screw drivers, nut drivers, and any other driver that I would need to take my car completely apart
-Power supply and appropriate chargers
-Basic spare parts

The more cars you bring to practice with the less support gear you need...I know it sounds backwards, but if you only bring one car and it breaks you're done. I usually have 3 or more cars with me so if one breaks I just use the others the rest of the day.

When a race day rolls around I also bring:
-Soldering iron
-Tool chest FULL of spare parts (at least a enough to build 2 cars)
-Spare electronics e.g. motors, receiver, servo
-Hydration...preferably in the form of Monster Energy
-Car stand or two
-Tires

It's easier to see the track when you don't have to squint, I think.....

I take a few set-up sheets for what I expect the track to be like (only have 1 track, but it's always different, wet, dry, dusty).
Also, I take my set-up guide as i'm an absolute racing noob and need to read up on what changes to make when the car acts weird.
