Running a Racing Car as a Hobby

Racing cars are a thing of beauty, but looking after them involves a lot more effort and tools than you would need for your normal run of the mill automobile. It is important that you have a good amount of tools that are right for when it comes to maintaining your racing car. It isn’t a case of having a basic toolbox with a couple of spanners and a hammer in it.

Below are just some of the important items you should be storing:

  • Adhesives
  • Car Linkage
  • Chassis Brackets
  • Cleaners Cleaning Supplies and Polish
  • Cockpit Accessory Mounts
  • Coolants and Sealants
  • Decals and Patches
  • Racing & High Performance Brake Fluid
  • Roll Bar Padding
  • Special Lubricants

It is also handy to have some spare silicone hose handy, check out Pegasus Auto Racing’s silicone hoses.

Some of the items listed can be rather pricey, and hence a hobby like this can be an expensive one, but it can be well worth it if you do it right and will bring you hours or pleasure for years to come.
