Get 2 Ofna Bags thay are GREAT the only thing i dont like about the bags is thay say OFNA all over them.I run Losi so it just dont look right having an Ofna Bag but for the price at Amain 95.00 you just cant bet them.

Just make sure you tape the outside of the boxes with packing tape. The boxes being made out of cardboard instead of plastic is the only downfall to that bag.

The ofna bag is cool due to the storage they have on the sides but I would suggest the newer style more sturdy bags & in the newer style there many brands but only 2 styles. The Racers edge style bag has 2 1/2 width drawers on the bottom,1 full width drawers above that for wide things like power strips & starter boxes,& a full width drawer on top that holds a buggy with wing,wheels,& body on then a seperate open compartment with a zippered lid on the very top. This is the bag I use & recomend mainly due to the 2 full width drawers.

http://www.racers-edge.com/1_8_Car_H..._p/rce2016.htm

The other bag is the original new style bag made by Team Magic & of course the many coppies. The TM bag has 2 1/2 width drawers on bottom then 2 more 1/2 width drawers above that then the full width buggy holder drawer on top & the seperate compartment on top has a elastic band tool holder in it. The TM bag is the original but also the most expensive & usually out of stock every where. Like mentioned before the 4 1/2 width drawers are the deal breaker for me & I have no use for the tool holder in the top compartment I have a seperate fishing tackle/tool box for that.

http://www.teammagic.com.tw/en/profr...9220&pageNum=1

Both have an extending handle & wheels & both will support a heavy load stacked on top & bungied down for transport from your car to the pits. I strap a tire box,small cooler,& truggy top of the racers edge bag & have been abusing it for a few years now. You should be able to head down to the pit & inspect both styles in person on any race night to choose. Both can be ordered for much less than the stated MSRP from any shop,well you might have trouble getting the TM bag bet everyone sells the Racers edge bag for $175 or less.

Almost forgot the link to OFNA bag,sorry. I think the OFNA bag would be a hit if the one drawer was big enough for a buggy with wheels & wing on & had plastic drawers like the others instead of card board.

I had the team magic 1/8 hauler for about 4 yrs now and it still looks new and never had problems with it.You also can buy another full draw for 15-20$$$.The team magic is the more expensive bag but from the other copies i have seen the TM one is also constructed much better

I personally think the Trinity T8 bag is the best looking bag on the market. BUT the past 2 weeks I had the handle that is sewn on the right side rip off and one of the zippers for the drawer flap break. I've had it 6 months and am not abusive with my gear. The drawers also need to be trimmed for them to open/close correctly. I expected a little better quality for what these things cost. If the Team Magic one is truly better constructed, then I need to find one because I like the drawer/pocket layout.
