Default fluid containers

i'm looking for a way to keep my fluids clean and organized. i know that dialed makes the fluid bag and it is nice, but i was looking for a cheaper way to go. so if anyone can post some ideas and pictures of what you use. i'm looking for something to store in my pit bag. i've looked in the fishing section at my local sporting goods store bt found nothing to my liking. maybe something to where each fluid has its own slot. lookin forward to see some of the idea you all have.

Just about everyone here including myself uses the fishing box thats made for crankbaits or something its the perfect height and holds about 12 bottles in 3 rows. For a few bucks it doesnt get much better than that IMO

Honestly bro the dialed fluid bag is the only way to really go. I have done a ton of searching for rc related products all over and I can say there really is not anything that comes close to the dialed bag.

You could go to Jo Ans and pick up a plastic container and throw it all in at once but its not going to be organized.

Dialed is the way to go

as stated Dialed Inc is the way to go, its worth the extra bucks to keep everything organized and looking good. As soon as you open the bag up you know where everything is instead of searching thru a box trying to find your fluid. Also the good thing about The Plastic tubes that come with the dialed inc bag is if a fluid container decided to leak the fluid will stay inside that tube instead of getting everything oily and sticky.

Sterilite boxes.

One for diff fluids and one for shock fluids. Since I run PTRC their shock fluids come in "Big Bore" 4 oz bottles. These were the only boxes I found to be able to hold them all. (Albeit mine are blue top)

Wal Mart for about $3 ea. 9 3/8" L x 8" W x 6 7/8" H

Exactly what I use too. I have one for diff fluid, one for shock oil, and also one for extra nitro motors. I seal the motors, and put them in a zip lock bag then they fit perfectly in the holes. The case will hold 3 motors.

I gotta say while those dialed inc containers look nice, there are alot of other things you could spend you money on. The ones from walmart work well or you can take an old engine box, a little duct tape, and you have a free box that will last a long time.

Ya I saw the fluid cans from Dialed at my local track. Real nice, but for $50 I think that is a bit pricey.
