Nice work! I wonder if it would be viable to add an aluminum plate to cover the open end of the box at the fuel bottle side but leave a slight enough gap to "clip" things to like a pocket knive clip. That way those of us who use temp sensors from companies like Duratrax that have that clip on the back of it. Just a random thought. If I were to get one, I would probably do that myself and also add a magnet in some strategic places underneath the aluminum so that I could place body clips down on it without worry of losing them.

But this thing looks sweet! If I raced 1/8 nitro, I would be all over this thing! But unfortunately the only nitro I have is my Savage, which wouldn't benefit much at all from this except to keep the wheels off the ground during warm up or break in.

Default PIT PAL

I LIKE THE STYLE OF IT,

ITS LIKE "INDUSTRIAL ART". I TOO WOULD LIKE THE BOTTLE END TO BE CAPPED OFF/ CLOSED. PM ME WHEN YOU'VE GOT A FINNISHED PRODUCT. .....................

Very nice product. I think at 40$ you will sell a ton.

Again, I would like to thank everyone for their comments/suggestions, I am listening to them all.

At the moment, I don't plan on making the Pit Pal with the end closed off as a standard product. What I can do is offer it as an option for a little bit more money. It will take a little bit more aluminum and time to weld that piece on. So, if it's something that you want, I will gladly add it to yours, just pm me.

Thanks

Also keep in Mind that some people use Fuel guns, not fuel bottles..Very difficult to find fuel gun holders. Just a thought

I seen him making handles maybe get some fabrick and put it on the side to it will hold a fuel gun , but if you dont have one you wont have a hole in ur pit pal. Im sure it might take time to cut slots for it to mount but if its wanted charge more.

I think itís a cool idea and might get some. But what I see might happen is the strap might get tangled up in the tire and flip the car off the stand after a start or high rev to clear out a carb. Here is my idea mount a strap on the bottom with half of a buckle on it so it barely comes around the bottom so the strap can be removed and put in your back pocket.

Thanks for the information and I will look into those clips to make the straps removeable.

Definately cant put a holster on the carry strapps,

the fuel gun will leak through the vent tubes when you lay the strapps down , has to be a solid/vertical type of mount. it can be welded on the side also, i pay a few bucks more for an extra option , on top of the base price.

The problem with the fuel gun is....I don't have one. I can make something to hold one for sure, I just need to get one in my hands to take measurements of.

no problem,

it will be like a coffee cup holder, with a diameter of about 2 1/2 inches, about 5 or 6 inches deep . that should cover all the ones currently sold on the market
