Default Car carriers

What are people using to get their cars to and from the track. Anyone using tool totes like you’d buy at Home Depot, Lowe’s. I only have one on road & one off-road which they won’t be “bagged” together. I’m trying to be frugal as I still need caster/camber setup tools, board spare parts etc.. Show what you use

Looks like a piece of garbage as you are assembling it and I don't like the zipper opening on the end as it makes opening the bag on the ground a pain. However, overall I'm pleased with the bag for the money. Three drawers and the side pocket for a setup board. I put two touring cars in it, my radio, tires, and sauce.

i like to travel compact and light.
iv got 99% of my tools, hardware, and spare parts in an old tackle box. radio gets strapped to the handle with what is basically a super long Velcro battery strap. cars and sometimes battery charger are on there own.

Fatmax boxes are great for 100 pounds of ironworking tools, but bad for lightweight, high volume RC gear. Get a tote with wheels:

That fatmax looks a little big. Maybe if I was doing 1/5 cars 😬

In a phrase no man ever wants to hear, it's a lot smaller than it looks.

But much heavier.

I forgot that I have a backback tote teabag from my Harley. I guess I could use that, build a foam insert to keep chassis stable.

That Harley bag won’t work, too flimsy inside. The fatmax isn’t that big, 24” tall by 21” long
