I got this bag from Lowe's. It regularly $19.98, but on sale at times for $14.98. It's a normal stock item for them. It's made by a company called "AWP". Here's the link.

I holds a 1/2 gallon of Nitro, plus two bottles. The pockets are perfect sizes too, for glow igniters, tools, temp gun, fuel gun,etc. etc.

I heard the trinity t8 and TM f8 are the same bag, does one have better quality than the other or are they the exact same?

The Trinity T8 and Tean Magic F8 bags are pretty much the same, I think the F8 bag may be a little better built. I spent about an hour repositioning the inner boxes to get them the way I wanted them. The shelves are velcro'd to the sides of the bag and that was where most of that hour was spent.

A Losi Truggy will fit in thr F8 or T8 bags if the big plactic box on top is taken out and just the shelf is used, minus wheels and wing. Tried to get it to fit in the plastic box but couldn't get it in the way I wanted, its pretty close to fitting, just didn't like the angle it had to sit at, still had to be done without the whells and wing. So just going without the top box worked better for me. All I can say it to try it, if all else fails and the truggy has to be kept out of the box, then it should be more than enough to hold all the other things needed for racing, execpt a bunch of Truggy tires.

Thumbs up Something a little different....

After playing serious paintball and traveling with heavy gear... I came to the realization that something a little stronger was in order.
I now run with a Pelican 1630 Transport case. They are pricy! It has been all over the world with heavy gear in it and it always arrives intact and undisturbed.
It will hold all of my tools, Start box, Fluids, engines, tires and just any and all general maint items for racing buggy.
I also run a Pelican 1400 for my radio and extra servos, electrical parts and batteries.
Why? Because they are indestructable for ordinary use. They are also warrantied for life and water tight.

This leaves my car and outdoor gear in their own bags. This includes extension cords, cleaning bucket w/ brush, lights, soap, trash bags, towels, poncho, hat and gloves, bug wipes, cleaning wipes and sunscreen. This stuff only goes if I'm really traveling to a large race.

Is the pelican 1400 big enough for a radio, I want o buy one for my Helios, but I was going to get a 1500, id like a 1400 if it will fit.

Here is the only place I know of to get a team magic bag in the us.http://www.wolfhobbies.com/Bags_Boxe...mula_8_F8.html

I think the difference in the team magic bag and the trinity bag is that the team magic one has a tool holder in the top and a little better quality which I don't think the trinity one has, from I hear from people who have them. I have looking for a couple of weeks trying to decide which to get and finialy decided on the Team Magic bag. Proline is also coming out with one that I think will be close to the team magic one but says on their website that it won't be released until March. Hope this helps.

can somone tell me if the Hudy 455x570mm setup board will fill in the back pocket of the TM F8 bag, it always a pain to carry that, any I haven't even brought it to the track yet.. it would be sweet of it would fit in the back.

Not sure on the F8 dimentions but Hudy TRUGGY board fits in the RE bag & the velcro just barely keeps the flap tight. I'll try & fit the board in someones F8 at the track today & let you know sunday morn.
