    Arrow What Tools You Bring To Shootouts?

    Just for gits and shiggles, let's see what tools or extra car parts you bring just in case something goes wrong (even if not) with your SC.

    Well.....when I was only pushing 300whp I didn't bring anything. I think this year I'm pretty much just going to bring them all....but in my truck, because I plan on getting a trailer....oh and a jack.

    Basically a full screwdriver and ratchet set, torque wrench, laptop, palm pilot....um....oh yeah and a jack.

    I might fly into Memphis just to get my tool box full of goodies. Everything you need to work on an SC, minus the TQ wrench and air tools.

    The one thing I didn't bring last year that I needed was an axle nut socket (36mm, I think). I will be bringing at least 2 spare axles this year and several new axle nuts (I still owe Tony one from last year).

    aint that the truth. I think we got lost from ~~~~~~ directions in every state we went to while running the NMCA/PRO series.

    Jeeeeez David! I wouldn't think you would even have any time to drink two cases or even one with all of that potential work. I guess I know where to go if i need to borrow something.

    I'm just going to drive my car to the shootout since it is only 150 miles from my house. I'm gonna just leave my tools, my spare parts, and extra wheels on the ground in the pit area.

    Dave's got a pretty good list there. I didn't need the nitrous though and had to go out and buy the spare belts and antifreeze. Other than that I had a trunk full of Trails End popcorn for my oldest son to sell! (and a bunch of diapers for my 2 month old at the time )
