I have the TM F8 bag as well, actualy two. One for parts and the other has by buggy and truggy in it. The new Trinity T8 bad is the same as the TM bag and is way cheaper than the TM bags I bought. Pro Line has a bag that looks alot like the Trinity and TM bag. I think Venom Racing has that style of bag too. If you want to fit a truggy in the bag and one of the afore mantioned bags are used, take out the top plastic box and a truggy will fit without wing or wheels on it. Works fine for my Losi. I get the buggy in there by taking out the two smaller boxes under the large box. Fits in a little tight, but goes in, again without wing or wheels on it.

they need to make these bags just a couple inch's bigger to not have to take everything apart to fit....sure wheels i can understand.....but the wing...pshh.....this is one of the reasons i have yett to invest in a bag like this.

The Trinity bag is ok, but not as well made as the Magic bag (I have both).

The upper and lower T8 drawers need a little trimming so they can slide in and out without getting hung up on the hardware inside the bag. I havent trimmed mine yet, so I have to take out the top drawer if I want to remove either of the bottom drawers.

The Pro-Line bag looks similar, but has a different drawer layout...it has 4 drawers instead of 5. The middle row of drawers is one single drawer, which is a good idea cause there is more room. BTW-the Racers Edge bag has the same drawer layout.

Upgrade makes a really nice duffle/gear bag (I have one of those too), if you can find one. Its HUGE and if you have boxes to put your stuff in (tools, chargers, etc.), it will fit everything without any disassembly, including a gallon of fuel...

I loaded up my Upgrade bag for the first time with all my gear and it was a Little heavy to say the least....i actually heard a "rippp" from one of the handle's...so i had them reinforced at a local seemstress....i now use it to haul tires and cleaning supplies and thats it...so it's light as a feather now.

10 sets of buggy tires and 7 sets of truggy.

My girlie bought me these bitchin' parts bins at target, she said they were like 15 bucks each, they have 2 sizes [the size shown....] and one thats twice as thick. I use a thick one for all my shock/diff oils, greases, packs of fuel tubing, extra transponders, servos, receivers etc... and i use the skinny ones for spare parts and for screw sets for my cars...heres a pic of the boxes


And the little trays inside come out which is SO handy [dont be jealous of the finger nails, ladies....]



I got a trinity duffel bag dealie too, i stack up all those yellow cases inside, and also my setup station



heres some other pics of the TM F8 bag, soooo much room, top drawer I put buggy in, these drawers are a couple sets of new tires/wheels/glue, and a drawer for spare motors and pipes



And the tool caddy up top is badass. It's like, the perfect height for reaching down and grabbing a tool [which is nice because you have all that extra table space not occupied by tools or a toolbox etc] and if you need it, the part in the back is removable like a little tool/parts caddy



I think it might be time to buy a new duffel bag, i've had that trinity one since i was a kid and my dad did all the dirty work for me lol, but it still works great and never had a rip [testament to its quality]

I'm using the "Racers Edge 1/8th Hauler" bag. I grabbed it last season and glad I did! One drawer (no cardboard) will hold a buggy with tires and wing attached. So it should hold a Truggy without tires, then you still have gobs of room in other drawers and on top. It also has a handle and wheels.....

Good setup so far.
