Hi hailo01
In the main you don't need to carry a huge selection of spare parts and tools but this would depend on the type of terrain

a good support crew should carry

track pins
fine blade screw driver
needle nose pliers

Over time you will accumulate the screws & nuts & bolts to make running repairs

CA glue would also be appropriate.

It pretty much has all the special tools that you'll need to assemble the tank. Except for glue.

I like to use Ambroid Cement, Medium Viscosity CA with a spray accelerant and maybe (if needed) a 5 minute epoxy. The grease and lubes for assembly are in the box but I would recommend a good plastic safe oil for oiling the gearbox and it's shafts & bearings.

There should be no need for spare parts. Hope that's the answer you were looking for?
