Talking 1/8 on road post-race checking

Theres a lot been said about what we are supposed to do BEFORE the race. But what happens after a race? After marshalling for the next race and returning to the pit tables to look over the car after being inspected by the race technicians, I am wondering...
1) What do you all check on the car? In what order do you check the car ( eg. shocks, belts, pulleys, damages etc)

2) If you had just 20 minutes to check your car before the next heat, what areas of the car would you check and make sure that everything is ok?

3) After the qualifying heats and in preparation for the A-mains, What do you replace since the race will be longer? Besides fresh new tyres, glow plug, a quick dusting off...what do the good people in the RCTech universe do to prepare their cars for the 1/8 A-mains final?

I have rebuilt my Shepherd Velox V8, so I hope I dont have to worry about mechanical failure.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help

I'd check the pulleys and belts first, then transmission and clutch.
