Another option is the Dialed Tool Can: http://www.dialedinc.com/tool.html

I had the Hudy and the Associated tool bags but I find the Dialed tool can is much easier to actually use on the pit table, especially at indoor races where the pit space is limited.

I agree with the above two posts. No need for all that fancy crap. Those fancy little bags and tool boxes specifically from r/c companys are a waste. Just go to your local Lowes, or hardware store and pick you out something. I personally use a big Plano brand tackle box you can find at your local walmart. Works great! Has alot of small compartments for small parts. Big compartments for set-up tools and spare a-arms and liquids (glue, shock oil, diff oil) You can't go wrong, and for $30 buks!!

BUT, I do however use the Dialed Inc. buggy bag for transporting your buggy/truggy. Its nice and you dont even have to take your wheels off! And I also use a Speedmind transmitter case for my Spektrum DX3S radio, about $34 on ebay. I only have that because, well, its a $249 radio.....

Other than that, for carrying tools, all the fancy stuff I see no point. Could just be more money spent on your R/c.....

Yea, no need for expensive things that dont have to be. Thats ridiculous

for example here is some things I think is crazy for people to buy that I think is un necessary and expensive

-glow plug caddy - $11.25 retarded, put that $hit in a empty pill bottle, or a small compartment in tackle box

-ProTek super hauler bag - $149.99!!! sorry, but I can find more things to spend 149 on!!

-Hudy exclusive edition carrying bag - $371.99!!! HOLY FREAKINN CRAP MAN!!! I can get about 2 motors for that!

All these things are expensive mainly for the fancy little logo on the side. Just get you a crate like pictured above an put a couple stickers on that bad boy!!!
