First you will need enough parts to build a complete car. As mentioned above, most 
(or all) of this is often available as a complete combo. In order to go from 
nothing, to a running car, you will need the following:
 - car chassis
 - car body (shell)
 - car motor
 - model car battery*
 - speed controller
 - steering servo
 - receiver
 - wheels (tires and rims)*
 - radio
 - radio batteries
 - battery charger
 - crystal set*
*All the items that are marked with an asterisk, you will probably want to have 
multiples.

To put everything together, that is to build the car, you will need tools. Looking 
around my own garage, here is what I have lying around:
 - assorted small screwdrivers
 - assorted small wrenches
 - tapered reamer
 - sharp (X-Acto) knife
 - scissors
 - needle-nose pliers
 - sandpaper
 - elastics
 - small wire ties
 - body (Lexan) paint
 - CA (cyanoacrylate) glue
 - thread lock
 - gear lubricant
For a better (exact) list, again, consult the manual that comes with your specific 
car kit. Often car kits come with few basic tools, and then the manual will tell 
you what else you will need.
