Good attidude.. open mind ,when things take place on the track that you feel wasnt or could of been your fault...

IPO you need to bring an excellent attitude and open mind to the track. Also a pocket full of money wouldn't hurt!

I do all my setting up, comm truing andd tire trueing at home. I bring more than enough mototrs and tires with me to the track so i don't have to worry about bringing the lathes.
I bring some basic set-up equipment like a camber guage, droop guage, height guage...ect.

My needs are the following:
-GFX charger and my 30 amp power supply
-Unger 300 soldering iron
-Ott light
-Integy 30 amp Tray
-Novak Smart Tray
-Plenty of spares
-Allen Wrenches and basic tools: small pliers, screw drivers...etc.
-Most importantt is the "air in a can stuff" to blow off all the rubber and carpet fibers from my car.
