When I first started I had a lot of cheap tools. Over the years I have very carefully replaced them with what I consider the best, but not the most expensive. Also I have found out what is absolutely necessary and leave a lot of the other stuff at home in a box in the garage (actually several boxes and cabinets). Now since I run brushless I have gotten rid of my lathes and brush cutters, boxes of brushes, springs,etc. and my tool box is much lighter. There are a lot of stuff that is bought in the name of going faster, and I have my share. I run my MF2 and TC3 very close to bone stock and have a lot of fun, most of what I "have to have" now are tires.[IMG]http://[/IMG]

The two things I would totally suggest is a good (not cheap) Table. I got one of the Lifetime 5'x2' Plastic (so it isn't heavy) for $30.00 @ Costco or Price Club or Sam's Club. Also a simple folding chair. I use a really small folding stool from walmart, But I am finding My back never likes it so maybe a comfy one for Xmas. But if you don't have a place to put your gear or a place to put your rear you won't be happy. I hate when you get a track and there is no way near enough pit area tables for the race day. I say bring it and if you are kind enough let the new novice KID have a spot next to the guy who knows everything (let him get some knowledge too). I think those two are big ones. Also if no one else has suggested it a SOLDERING IRON & SOLDER. LOL these are that important that everyone has said it. AGIAN AND AGAIN...

I'd also suggest a light. Makes wrenching easier.

Actually Ive seen a guy that doesnt have the use of one of his arms. What he did was rig a device that let him use his foot to accelerate. It was quite incredible.
