Good one there Dave,

I wondered why you were always carried that thing. LOL.



The Team Magic, ProTek, Venom, and Trinity (Team Epic), are all about the same as far as how they are constructed. Of those I think the Team Magic one is a little better built, but is the most expensive. That is if you can find them. The Racers Edge one is a little like the others, but the handle is different, and I think a little better design. The Shepard one is also like the others with a better handle than all the others, but if you carry a setup board, that bag doesn't have a pocket for it. The handle location is where the setup board would be.

The new Duratrax one is pretty nice as it will hold a truggy and sin't much different in shape as the other bags. The little extra depth should make it a bit more stable on more surfaces. The Wing Tote is the other bag that will hold a truggy or monster truck, but doesn't look that well thought out. Outside of those it's the duffle bag style which will hold tons of stuff.

I use the Team Magic one as I think it's a little better built than some others like it. It is starting to show it's age though like others that have them have said theirs are doing as well. Might have to get a new one in a couple of years.

Kaptain CRASH,
Just a small hole in the material by the wheel from rolling on dirt. I guess I never mentioned that I really like my bag. The other one just looked more stable is all and maybe a bit more ground clearance.

Yeah James,
I just carry it now. LOL Did you really notice that?

Frank,
Ruthless I tell ya! LMAO over here!

I have tried almost everything when it comes to pit bags. They just don't seem to hold up for the amount of stuff I put in them. Plus they suck when it comes to rolling them up or down steps and drop offs.

I recently bit the bullet and purchased the ogio 9800 and couldn't be happier. What a high quality piece! If ur planning on spending 150 plus shipping on traditional bags, spend another 50 and get the ogio you won't be disappointed.
I picked mine up for 197 shipped.

Hahaha good stuff.

On my protek bags one lost a buckle so the strap dosent go across the top anymore and the other the handle only telescopes out 1/2 way. The biggest thing I did tk these bags is cut the drawers down so they slide smooth. They are ok and they are blue so that's even better.

I like the Stanley Fat Max, But the con is, that its a pain to have to keep opening and closing on the dirt or in a trailer. Everyone else with a bag or hauler and just slid it under a table and keep it out the way.
