Anyone have an alternative to athe classic rc hauler bag they want to share? I used to use an old toolbox with wheels but it wasn't big enough so I am back to stacking into some boxes....

My pit box is a disgrace compare to some of those posted. It's a different option from the standard hauler bags that most people seem to have.
I use a rolling tool box from Canadian Tire. It has on large compartment on the bottom and two on top. One side has little removable containers and the other is just a bin.
In the bottom I have my two parts trays, two chargers, power supply, two charger stands, two car stands, my radio bag, a can of cleaner, and some various other items like loose tires and a couple motors in their boxes.
One side I have all of my tools and the other I have all sorts of stuff. Spare battery, spare electronics, body clips, zip ties, and some other junk.
At the moment it's a huge mess with stuff all over and in places it doesn't belong. I had a big race on Sunday and kind of just dumped stuff everywhere so I could go home quicker.
I carry my cars and my pit mat and pit light in a duffle bag. Not the best option, but it works. Once my space is set up at the track, the bag holds the radio bag and anything else I want out of the way for easier access in my pit box.
One day this week I'll clean and organize everything and maybe I'll post better pictures.

I doubt very much anyone other than a do-it-yourselfer is using something like that to cut foam. If a company was going to produce something they would have it water jet cut or laser cut. It would be WAY faster, more accurate (repeatable) and cost less. Heck even a stamp type cutter would be better.

No, but if you go to Jo-Ann Fabrics and look at all their bead storage stuff, your head will explode. And it's generally all quite reasonably priced!

Generally, it is die-cut (stamped) in a production mode, as you said.

I was just sharing what I used to cut foam for a pelican case project that I had.
(pics below) I ruined a piece of foam and had to start over from scratch to get what you see here.



I made cardboard templates for the items I wanted to put in the case and pinned them in place and used the hotwire to follow that template.

Check out your local drug stores. They have plenty of things like this. They are just pill cases for old folks that take tons of pills all day

Quick ebay search of "21 slot pill case" brought up the exact xenon case without the sticker. Only bad part was they are in china/hk

Go back to post #20 on page 2. It is in the picture. It's self explanatory.

This is a daily pill box. It hold four shock springs for the T4 Xray. It came from Walmart. They cost $1. They also have larger ones. In the craft section of the store they have a small plastic storage case. Once opened you find 24 individual boxes that are great for the tiny parts. Not even small shims can fall out of those.
