A large workbench.
I dont have a baja yet, but I have some nitro's.
I would invest in some good hex drivers, and ball drivers.
Get some engine tools like a piston lock,and bearing pullers.
The baja comes with alot of useful tools.

If I did that it would be bye bye highway or hit the highway, highway!

I have a shop full of tools I could not live without any of them, I still need more tools!

A qualty set of hex drivers (both straight and ball end)

A good set of screwdrivers (don't cut corners here a bad screwdriver can cause lots of headaches)

A 1/4 inch drive ratchet and socket set is handy

A magnet on a stick (or small screwdriver with a magnet on the handle end.

A dremmel tool and a basic acceesary kit.

If you plan on doing any work on your engine I would suggest a piston stop, and flywheel puller.

If you plan on running your car at all in your shop, you need good ventilation.

I am sure I could sit here all night going on about tools. Just keep your shop clean and comfortable.

Oh yeah the two most important things,
1. a good sound system
2. a place to keep your favorite frosty beverage!

In the old days I had a spare room for my hobbies. My favorite work bench was a simple formica dining table; the kind you drop a leaf into. Plenty of width and depth; good leg room; and comfortable work height. The table was pushed up against the wall and I put wooden boxes on edge to make shelving. If held a ton of stuff... and I do mean a -ton-!
I have this very same table today but use it for my audio studio. Same concept though... nice wide and deep space for just about any project or undertaking.

My toolbox has always been simple. The parts boxes always varied depending on the size of the junk... errmmm... stuff. I can, however, find -any- tool in my toolbox blind! And if it's not there, someone is in deep troubles :p

Yes, there is: (Click on the pic to see 4 more pics, including 3 with an engine mounted.) http://www.teamgonads.com/8956.html Surprisingly, I don't see it on ddm.
