I'd like to know how some of you guys get a "generator" and a "battery charger" in your tool boxes???

I make sure I've got wrenches, 1/4-3/8 & 1/2 socket sets with a few extensions, mulit-tip screwdriver, channel lock pliers, a pair of Vise-Grips, Torque wrench, air gauge, feeler gauge, extra plugs, shoe polish and a pen. I may be forgetting a couple of things but that's pretty much it for the "tool box".

Occasionally I leave the kitchen sink at home. My pit neighbors typically use more stuff out of my trailer than I do, but I like to be prepared. Maybe that's why my trailer has 1300lbs of tongue weight,lol.

I found the more I raced the less I took to the track, anything serious would put the car on the trailer anyway,,, so a case of beer would be a good thing to have, just in case or for after
