car hauler bags...


Hauler Bags

I use the Racers edge bag as I like 2 full width drawers.

Actually come to think of it,
One of the guys I know had one of the side handles pull almost all the way off on the Trinity bag. He did have it pretty well loaded, though. Including a full size car batt for his starter box and charger. Probably way overloaded. The TM bag I use to hold almost all of my tools and extra parts and such is a bit on the heavy side. I also have a Trinity bag that has the three cardboard boxes (ones big enough to fit a 1/8th buggy in) to carry my tires for buggy and truggy.

The Ofna bag is pretty good too, maybe a better deal price wise. A fellow racer has one and seems to like it. Not sure on how functional it is compared to the F8 bag, but he likes it and got a real good deal on one. Around 79.00 on sale I think.

I know Sportworks had a 1/8th bag that looked to me to be close to the F8 bag. Only issue I saw was the cardboard boxes, but I knew a couple of guys that said that the F8 plastic boxes would fit in. Never really paid much attention to see if they did fit. I don't think they make them anymore so it may be a moot point.

The TM F8 bag is worth the money and then some, IMO. I don't worry about having to take the wing off the buggy and truggy to fit them in. Been doing it so long now, I don't even think about it. What I wanted the bag to do worked and kept things more orginized, plus was a couple of trips less to and fron the track and truck. It may not be ideal for anyone else, but for me it works.

So which bags will hold a 8-T truggy? I have been reading about bags for about a week and still don't have a definite answer. I was looking at the Team Losi roller, but don't want to spent the money if it won't hold my truggy. Thanks

I use the TM hauler too. I love it, it's been one of the best RC investments I've made. It holds everything I need to work on my buggy for a 1 or 5 day race. I also take my wheel carrier, pit bag, and my buggy and I'm set.
