Steve, the tire caddy and pit pouch are PIMP

Like I said in a earlier post, I have both the F8 and the T8 bags. My Magic bag is much better built compared to my Trinity bag. I dont know if I just got one from a bad batch, or if they are all that way...I paid the same price for both.

Most of my complaints are things that with some time and effort can be fixed, and I do plan on fixing it. But really, for what I paid for it, I shouldnt have too.

Im going to check out the Racers Edge/Proline bags and see if they are any different quality wise...

http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ducts_id/14162

http://www.prolineracing.com/p-624-p...e-pit-bag.aspx

If they are better than the T8 Im getting one and ditching the T8 bag. The drawer layout is the same between the two, but they are a little different from each other. The PL bag is a little cheaper and has the tool cady, which the RE bag lacks. And the RE bag comes with a radio bag, which you may or may not need...just going off the pics though, I would pick the PL bag cause it has the tool cady and the silk screening is a nice touch.

I like the proline hauler, looks like you can put a starter box in the 2nd box down, can you put a starter box in the f8 bag?

yeah, a starter box would fit in the top drawer, but it would take up alot of space in the drawer. Or you could get the Magic starter box bag that attatches to the side of the F8...

Racerscott ,I found a guy at the track that had the F8 & a Hudy truggy board in it. Yes the board will fit in the pocket, but no chance the flap/lid will shut.You could always get some 2 sided(male/female)velcro strips at a hardware store & use them to make it stay shut.

scoobie1, the RE bags are top quality & sturdy as hell. I load mine down then strap about 20-30lbs on top & roll it a couple hundred feet over potholed dirt & no probs so far,its about 2 yrs old or alittle under.The new ones are slightly different/improved from mine with a couple nice features I wish mine had, mostly top straps & front flap holder upper thingies.On the other hand Venom was selling a F8 ripoff for $125 not long ago,Tower is the only place I've seen it though

I trimmed my boxes like was mentioned in some of the earlier post and that helped a ton. I did not really want to cut on my new boxes but I had to in order to get them to operate smoothly. I have the trinity T8 bag.

i got the trinity T8 bag for xmas
at first i was a little "iffy" but after trimming the boxes i love it.

on the big top box i trimmed two grooves that were about 1 inch each on the top of the rear wall so that the box could move past the screws in the roof without getting cought.

on all of the four other boxes i removed the plastic cap/support from the rear wall and trimmed the rear wall of the boxes down about 1/2 inch then rounded off the front edge of the plastic support.

all four boxed slide in and out very easily..fully loaded.
the very bottom boxes are a little bit of a pain because of the elastic strap that holds the velcro for the front cover. i just put things that only need to come out when i get to the track and go back in when i leave so i only use that box 2 times in a race day.


all in all i am very pleased with the hauler bag...i was getting a little worried with all the reviews about how the boxes stick but with a little trimming i would recommend this bag to anyone whos thinking about it.
