Thanks for all of the responses guys...I am starting them off at $40, but may have to go up to $50 at the most. I don't want to price myself out either. These are all hand made by me, so production is a bit slower than a large company, but well worth it. Now that the prototype is done, I have already found a few things I need to work on to make them look nicer.

These are awesome units they are very durable and they help a ton moving from wrench area to pit area. The price is fair OMG 25 bucks wouldnt cover material, labor, and shipping.

i'll deffinatly be picking one of these up for sure!!!!! is there any way possible to offer it with/without carrying straps?? i've got an idea for a set of "personal" style straps.


also....is the aluminum milled fine enough to be mirror pollished or is it a rougher cut....i like things that are shinny lol...plus you can change the color of the polish to what ever you want....no i'm not telling how but if you knew you'd kick yourself in the a$$ for not thinking of it sooner, my secret lol!!!!

Klink,
The fuel bottle hole is 3.25". I can also drill the other holes to what you guys request or leave them out (except fuel hole) and let you add them where you want.

That's a pretty cool design you have there.

I have 2 questions, how do you prevent the starter box from sliding out? I was thinking you could put a bar at the end secured with some of those threadless looking bolts. You can drill a small hole in each threadless bolt and stick a body clip in it to secure it.

Also, as someone mentioned the removable straps... you could also attach the straps with these threadless bolts and also secure them with the body clips.

The starter box is held in with 2 channels so it can't slide out. I straps are solid for now...until I get more feedback from people and sit down and dream up some sort of removeable straps that is.

Thanks to everyone who has offered advice to improve my Pit Pal.

Good luck with the caddy Jon looks good and these things really do help at the track. Ive been working on my caddy for about two months refining the idea & adding features so I havent copied the idea from Jon.

My caddy was designed to offer a means to store and power the Sure-Start this is the where the design focus is for my product as it has onboard power.

I wish Jon all the best with his product
