Default What else to buy?

So I've come back to the hobby after some years off and picked up an 8ight 3.0. I have everything necessary to run the car right now. I plan to race this upcoming spring/summer. I am wondering what other extras/accessories I should pick up as well.

When you say you have everything necessary to run the car, do you mean you basically have engine and electronics but nothing else?

No I literally have everything...just asking what extra parts would be smart to buy to have with me at the track. I'm guessing extra air filters, plugs...just seeing if im missing anything

Being a losi, shock rod ends, shock shafts, the screws that hold the pistons to the shock shafts, hingepins, rod ends and Diffs are also handy. Having spare arms is a good idea also. Clutch shoes, air filters, clutch bearings and clutch bell. Clutch bell shims. Glow plugs.

Consumables such as cleaning cloths, brake cleaner, simple green, loctite, shock and diff oils, oring grease, air filter oil and ziplock bags. Also all very handy.
