Most people haul all their stuff (tools, parts, and chargers etc...) in that type of hauler bag. I use a toolbox to haul my tools and a duffel bag that has wheels to haul my tires and other stuff. Also the inner boxes are also sold seperately with the AE bag.

Some other guys have used a large rigid box with wheels to haul their stuff around. I have been looking inot one for myself as of late....

A car hauler bag is intended for transporting your car, parts and tools to and from the track. If you are going to spend money on a bag, I would recommend going with something like this though:

There are other manufacturers of similar bags, but this happens to be the one that I have and I love it! Initially I wasn't sure if it would be a good investment, but I have been using it since last November and I am still very happy with it. One of the best investments I have made!

Yeah those are very nice but at $189.. A lil stiff...

I got $30 in my bag and another $35 in the toolbox.
I put my tools into tackle trays and fit inside the toolbox.
For that combination I only have $80 wrapped up.

I knida like this bag as well. $95 even! It even comes with a radio bag!

the only thing that I don't like about that bag is a tool caddy. Is there enough room on the top of the bag for small boxes for tools?

I use this hauler and I fit everything in it . Best $150 I spent for hauling rc . I`ve gone through many tool boxes and boxes on wheels and fit a lot more in the Trinity hauler . As I`m getting older I like to just make one trip from the car to the pits and this is worth it to me .

I use this Stanley FatMax tool chest. I get comments on it everytime I go to the track. Works great, plenty of storage and compartments. Best thing - Only about $75 bucks at Lowes. Tougher than any of those fancy team bags and the big wheels make it easy to move over rough terrain.

I have used the Stanley portable tool chest like the one pictured. I have two of them, one large (available at Home Depot) and one smaller (like pictured, available at Lowe's). I purchased the smaller one, then it wasn't big enough for everything, so got the larger one. I debated on putting shelves/dividers in it, however while debating I had to lift it into my truck every time I went racing.(The big one is really big!) I soon decided to abandon that idea. I have a hauler on order, should be here tomorrow. It is made for 2 companies I know of, Venom and Team Magic. They are identical bags (other than colors/emblem) however the Venom seems to be easier to get and cheaper in the states.

I plan on using that bag to store my buggy, tools, most parts, and hopefully my starter box. Then I also drive a brushless truggy. I plan to get one of the Wingtote monster truck bags to carry it w/ a few brushless parts and tools.

hope this helps!

keep in mind if you have a truggy, they will not fit in the 1/8 scale bags! I have the team magic 1/8 and it is well worth the price, (Wolf Hobbies has it and free shipping) I use it for Tools,Charger,Start box, Spare parts, Ect. Use a duffle bag to haul Tires and Truggy.
