The obvious items..:
RR wheels various offsets, 4"-5"-6"\
LR wheels try to keep same various size tires
one front min, pref two with rubber
at minimum a spare front axle, and a set of radius rods w/ ends, and sized and marked. atleast a front hub and one spindle.
nose wing with straps and ready to go
steering arms, pittman arm.
top wing if possible with tree's or posts and rear tree , wing ram also
w-link x 2 w/ straps and pins ready to go
maybe side nerfs, front and rear set also
of course various fittings, and engine components. brake pedal is worth a ton if you have one break or something, and spare throttle pedal.

Basically you will learn over time what you tend to need more of and less of. I tend to need what I don't have, but havin a parts truck at the track is also helpful. So, when ya decide on a chassis, stay mainstream, same with your components, keep it simple and common, you'll be alot more likely to find something in a thrash...
