Is that TM bag big enough to hold a Truggy with it wheels off?

Well I ended up going with one of the boxes that Lowe's had. It is a 2-piece rolling box set for $60. I got everything but the cars, radio and fuel jug in. I could get the radio in but I'd rather carry that separate anyway.

THIS is the one I went with.

Somehow I never saw it at Lowes. I went and looked at their boxes several times. I always saw the $30 cheapo roller and the $80 Stanley. I didn't like either and wanted to spend in between those 2 prices.

Then at the races one of the other guys had the Kobalt box. He said it was a regular stock item there so I went and looked again. Sure enough, there it was. I never saw it because it comes in a cardboard box and since the other boxes are all loose with no packaging it never occurred to me to look at the cardboard boxes.

I even used an old sofa cushion to make a padded area for my radio on top with oils and my charger next to that. Middle drawer for parts bins. Bottom for starter box, spare tires, a little tool box, motor spray, and Simple Green.
Where did you find this box ???
Thanks,

My most valuable bag is this http://www.rcplanet.com/HPI_Carrying...p/hpi92550.htm

It has carried my STR 2 Xray buggies a gallong of fuel and 3 sets of tires for both the truggy and the buggies at one time.. Now it carries my Revo tires fuel radio box tires CRT .5 i am looking into a second bag to carry spare parts so it doesnt have to be big i am thinking a gym bag like the Losi tote. I carry all my tools in a cheap $15 tool box.... Oh and that would be they haul the cars with tires and wing on!
