Default equipment help

Ok folks...i'm gonna buy myself a 710 next week...YAY....now that i'm done deciding which car to get i still need a few equipment/accesories to go racing.
I've been seeing some pics of a few pit areas/tables and i see alot of equipment on the peoples tables and stuff and want to know what they are so i can get an idea of the stuff that i still need to buy.

What i'm gonna get so far:
Serpent 710
STS D3R Factory Modified engine and pipe
serpent powerstart
glow plugs/driver
Airtronics MX3 with digtal servos

So i think i got all the basic stuff (i think)...but want to know what else i would need..what do you guys bring with you to the track?

That's a nice setup. I hear the 720 is coming though.

This what no one told me about
EZup canopy
Folding chair
Folding Table (the white one which folds in half)
AC/DC charger
Glow Heater (the one with the stand alone battery for about $7)
TOOLS and SPARES!

Haven't found a place to buy some luck yet though!!!!!!!!!!!

Next month a complete 710 set is released:
http://www.mytsn.com/products/desc.asp?prid=4240

I don't know what the price will be, but the car has some nice optional parts standard: RCC shocks, rear gear diff.
I dunno about the engine and the Sanwa radio is AM.

You will need a couple of high quality allen screwdrivers like Hudy (2 and 2,5 mm will be the ones you use mostly), a "normal" screwdriver and a Philips screwdriver (kruiskoppie).
Fuel (Tornado 16%) ,glow plug driver Rx and Tx battery pack and charger.

What track will you be racing?
Maybe you can go to that track with your car and get some advice on what to buy....you can also go to your LHS and ask, but you could end up with stuff you'll never use...

But the 710 is a good choice!!

No point in getting it if there will be a new version soon. And I really wouldnt compare the buying of a 710 with buying a MTX-3, not the same circumstances.

The 710 will still be the same good 710, even if there is gonna be a 720...

Everybody is saying a 720 will be released soon.....but I haven't heard any official news, only rumours.
Maybe they will release a facelifted 710 and call it a 720 or a 710R.....

But I'll keep my eyes open at the Serpent testtrack...but 'till now I didn't see anything spectacular.
