Questions?? 1/8 racers..Biggest, Baddest RC Pit bag..What do you use?

OK guys I have been thru the normal Venom/Trinity/GS etc, etc.. pit rollers. They are great for a little while and then the corrugated plastic board from which it is made becomes weak and the bag just goes downhill from there..
Do any of you use a different style pit hauler? Is there any particular brand that stands out over the rest in size, capacity, durability, etc??

Go to home depot and buy the 30 gallon stanley box and a tackle box for tools. I had a few pit bags in the past, there nice...but won't take the abuse

Default My favorite

I love those plastic bins at walmart. The ones with different color lids, and big clear plastic box. I have two of those, and use the smaller ones for engine boxes and charger boxes that fit inside. Gotta have a plano tool box...

I like the plastic bin things and used them when I raced 1/5
but I want more organization like the pit rollers offer. Anybody got a link to a heavy duty pit roller?

The stanley fat max box is the best. I tried other ways of keeping things organized this year and just ended up back with the stanley box. Easy to organise, takes the abuse, and rolls over any obsticle from the way of the car to where you wana pit.

I only leave the buggy/truggy itself and my gallon of fuel out of the box. They just get to sit on top and go for a ride while I wheel it along.
