    I bring an assortment of tools and parts.

    Somehow, whenever I don't bring a spare I tend to Crash and crush exactly the parts I haven't brought along.... (Well, I never said I was a good driver... :p )

    Mostly what I bring along of parts is:
    spur gears ( I still run plastic)
    A spare carson MT wheel
    plastic balljoints
    some lock rings for the dampers and a-arm axes
    assorted screws and nuts
    spare spark plugs
    spare receiver battery
    spare batteries for the Controller

    Assorted tools

    a piece of rope to tow/drag the car in case unrepairable crashing, instead of having to carry it.

    I can't compare to a Nitro toolbox, as I have never owned a Nitro

    Pretty much the same stuff just larger.
    glow plugs = spark plugs
    small hex keys = hex keys up to 5mm
    pretty much the same spare parts just on a larger scale.
    When you need a 24mm socket to take the wheels off a baja you need a little bigger box. It reminds me of the commercial of the taco bell dog" I think I need a bigger box"
    I use a flambeau fishing box that has drawers that pull out. I can interchange the drawers depending on what I am running that day. One drawer for FG, one for Baja, one for nitro , one for electric.

    i share my pit box with 3 1/8 buggies and 2 truggies so I have a 4 drawer box.. this thing is big and weighs around 30 pounds loaded. for the Baja, I can literally just carry extra batteries for the tx, tire wrench, plug wrench and thats about it.. I have just about every spare for all my cars in the box, but I only take it to races.. when I run the baja, i just put the few items in my pocket and carry the radio, baja and gas can..LOL.. the nitros are like taking a hobby store with you everytime you run...
