Default Which Pit Caddy

Ive been using a bucket and want a caddy. The hudy one looks bling bling but the mugen is half the price. Dont mind spending the cheese if the hudy is worth it. Opinions please

Dont waste your coin on a "hudy" bag as you will pay a stupid price for a stupid bag. I find most of those bags like the mugen one are too big anyway but i guess every one takes different things to the pits. Some people are just happy using one of the fuel bottle caddys that hold a glow ignitor & tuning driver

Then there is that stupid RB item.. I think its one of the dearest you can buy and having a good look a one i honestly think the most impracticial peice of junk you could have as a pit bag

I use something simular to this and find its perfect

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/HEAVY-DUTY-NY...item2a08d38451

Has plenty of storage and holds fuel bottle well and my radio... Sometimes it seems to big and it has about 8 pockets that i dont even use

my bag of choice is the mcguire nicholas "mighty bag" just big enough for a bottle, tools, glow igniters and temp gun. and small enough to store in the gear bag. starter box is always left at pit lane, so dont I really need anything bigger.

I mean they are just the cutest little purse...I want the blue:




I got mine at menards, only the grey though and like 8 bucks.

I picked up a carpenters tool bag at Harbor freight tools. It was $10 and it holds everything including starter box. It also has zipper and velcro pockets for plugs and batteries and extra wheels nuts, etc. Perfect size, perfect price

I picked up a NIP Hudy bag for $35 last Feb. ....there was no way I was going to pay full price for one, but for that kind of deal, I really couldn't pass it up. It's a good bag, but it really is roomy. My Ofna blue top starter box, fuel bottle, ignitor, pit tools, temp gauge, etc...all fit in, and I still have room for my 4PK as well.

One of my good racing buddies has the Mugen bag, and while it is a bit smaller (the Ofna box will only fit if turned on its side), it's still a good bag. If I had to choose Hudy or Mugen, paying full price, I'd get the Mugen bag. I really do think it's the better bang for the buck between those two.

Now, with that being said, there are a good number of useful tool bags at Lowes, Home Depot, etc... They may not be RC specific, but they will indeed work just fine for what we need them to do. If functionality is more important to you than "image", look there first. If nothing suits your fancy, then go for the Hudy or Mugen, whichever one you can find the best deal on.

Hey me too get an extra to stay organized as you wrench. I stand my starter box "mugen" on end in it jam in fuel bottle ,have velco strap over box & use box handle to carry. I would give 30 for the hudy bag too. Hudy does love their own stuff !$!.

Another option I have seen done, since you already have a bucket, like a spackle bucket I assume, you could just pick up a tool belt and strap it on to the bucket. Plumbers do this all the time also.

I used to use a plastic 2 sided caddy from Walmart that I paid like $6 for. Worked great...but you can't fold it up. So I swapped to a Mugen Pit Bag and it rocks. When I get to the track, I load up my tools in it....and I'm good to go for the day!

We run the HUDY pit bag folds down and travels great (not to much room) and it fits a starter box and Truggy tires with all the gear. Ours gets used most weekends and hasn't shown any signs of giving up 12 months on...

Have u seen the KM racing ones they are good.

Or you can use a used fuel gallon cut out accordingly to your needs and then just throw away once your done.

+1 on the Mugen Pit Bag. I have used the harware bags in the past however they are not designed specifically for the hobby. If you dont mind spendig the cash the Mugen bag is very nice and works great.
