Best/Fastest Wheel Bearing Tool

Looking to Build a Boxster Endurance Race car and I know I will be replacing wheel bearings a decent amount.
Looking for the best tool to be able to do them at the track if needed.
The car will not have a parking brake

I know some folks that bring 1-2 extra hubs with them so when they pull the bearing, they can get right to pressing in the new bearing and then the hub, without fooling with trying to pull the remnants of the inner race off the hub, which can be hard to do, especially in the back.

.... And a freezer to chill/shrink the bearing so it fits the hub without too much force. A dremmel tool if you need to remove leftover bearing race bits, and a 8' long 450lb rated torque wrench to get the necessary leverage to torque the axle nut to 340lbs.

We have done this once at the track in 10 years but greatly prefer to do it at the shop surrounded by plenty of tools. Having a spare F and R hub, pre-fitted with fresh bearings in your spares kit would greatly reduce trackside down time.
