Great question though! Maybe someone has some insight on precision foam cutting?
Spent 7 years in the Navy and every tool box on land or on the ship was cut the exact same way with the foam, I've cut many of holes for tools

They always had us use an xacto

Hmm, looks like a clock alright. The question is why not mount it on ones wrist? It must have a particular function, maybe it has a timer built in or alarms? I think that one has a temp guage. Just trying to work out what is rc car use is.

The Polybutler Pit Boxes seem to have fallen out of favour as haulers have become more popular. I hardly see them anymore.

You're right a clock and temp gauge. When at the track it does seem to make you keep track of time. Also has alarm which can be set to alert you of your upcoming heat at a big race. I like it but some may not.

Bumping this up to see if anyone has any new ideas for pitbag/box setups, ideas or cool products to share with us. I am personally looking to organise a nice clean track-bag/box setup. Being organised and having everything clean and in order is a must for me, I believe it makes things so much more comfortable, easier and more enjoyable
So hopefully we can pick up some good ideas and tips from this

I made a conscience effort to invest in tools before investing into anything else. Some of my other tools I keep at home, such as soldering iron, soldering tools and some spares plus some wheels.

Great thread once again.
Im a minimalist like the guy who started this thread. But please tell me why do you need 4 different paint brushes to get dust off the car? I have a 2 box carry bag. but I think the big difference for me is the bag has a separate location to house the transmitter. everything else goes in the bag. spare parts are in a separate container that I keep in my car

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.

What brand is this?
