no, you dont need all that to go 12s. your best bet is to go to NHRA & get a rule book. For 12s, its basic stuff, radiator overfull, all lug nuts, seat belt et. etc., If your running slicks, youll need a driveshaft loop, youll also need a snell approaved helmet.
Id get the rule book, or atleast go talk to tech guys at your local track
