To get started, basic hand tools, i.e. a socket set, screw drivers, pliers, dead blow hammer, crescent wrench, torque wrench, safety wire tool & wire, air pressure gauge, tape measure, tie-wraps, duct tape. For liquid products, 409, WD40, TriFlow and the oil of choice for your engine.

You’ll need the tire bead breaker and also tools to mount and unmount the tires from their rims plus a strap to go around the tire while during inflation.

An air compressor is good. How do yon intend to power it at the track? For many years I beaded tires up at a local gas station and brought a 5 gallon air tank with to the track.

You could use a piece of plywood, clamped to the chassis to mount a seat.

You’ll need alignment tools for the front end. Laser alignment tools would be preferred but you can make do with a couple of alignment plates that mount to the front hubs and a tape measure.

The engine and axle gears need to be aligned. Again, a laser tool is nice, but a steal ruler works.

If you’re using a clutch, tools to install, remove and service it.

That should get you through the first weekend. Oh! throw in paper towels/rags and hand cleaner.
