hay amte i started racing may 2009 and even though i have any been racing a few months i have learnt alot.

have a selection of tools
-needle nose pleirs
-good quality hex and nut driver set
-flat and philips head screw driver
-hobby knife
-wheel, glow plug, flywheel and flywheel nut wrenchs (should come with car)
-CA glue
-heat shirink (handy for quicks CVD repairs and to cover damaged wires)
-spares (not needed but very handy)
-WD40 or a similar product
-spare glow starter(very handy)
-quality fuel bottle
-small and large paint brushes(good to keep car clean)
It is also handy to spend one weekend running the kit before going to a race to try and get as many of the bugs sorted out as possible. try to find someone at the race to help you out and pit for you.

try to keep an eye out for any things that might come apart dueing the test running. this will allow you to find the weaker areas of the car and be able to keep a good eye on them dueing a race day.

this is a basic list and you should talk to the guys at your local hobby shop or at the race.

you have got to have plenty of patiance. takes time to get the car perfect and you will more than likly have trouble in a few different areas

.hope this helps
go hard or go home
