Default What do I need to go racing?

Hi all. I recently purchased a FT TC3 from one of the members on the boards with a Novak Cyclone ESC installed. I want to know what I'll need to have in my pit to be ready for a race day? I have a MRC 959 I use for my Nitro stuff, is that a good charger to use for electric touring? Any advice would be helpful.

Don't forget a HOT soldering iron.Hakko and Weller are the best.Some you can get for under $60 or so from your local Lowes.
