It actually comes apart right in the middle. The top gets pretty heavy with my tools and batteries, but there are handles on both sides so I can just carry it. I see a lot of guys show up with those huge rubbermaid containers on wheels. then they have to unpack everything when they get there, set it up and then pack it all away at the end of the night. I don't have to unpack anything. I just work right out of the box.

no car will fit in it on its wheels, I just plop my starter box and car on top and cart it around from there. Works for me!

Thumbs up

Thanks for the recommendations on that Stanley galvanized box from Home Depot. A bit more than I wanted to spend, but it holds just about everything I have. One or two trips to-and-from the car and track is always better than 5. I really like the Stanley box, but now I have to do some creative designing to create smaller dividers and containers for the little items I carry. The 3 boxes individually have few dividers or interior containers for small items. Anyone using one of these will have to invest in smaller tackle box containers for small tools and parts storage (if you already don't have these things).

I'd recommend the Stanley tool chest, definitely. Very nice quality, and should hold a ton for any racer.

yeah, I went out and bought the Stanley mobile workshop yesterday. I had that 'feeling' in my stomach when I was about to pay for it (sticker shock), but I'm sure it will be worth it in the long run.

Thanks again for all of the recommendations.

The top and bottom seperate so you can fit it on almost any car trunk. It has wheels so you can easily roll it from your car to your pit space. http://www.rcprobox.com has more pics

The Stanley box from the first reply is what I use plus a soft duffel bag for tires towels and all the charging crap on a plug strip. The nice thing about the stanley box is that it breaks apart into 3 section so you could fit into a yugo if you had to. Starter box fits in the bottom easy. It has wheels and works sweet. If you are going to do any airplane traveling I would go with a bag style that are RC specific as they are easier to use as luggage.
