Default Battery and Motor Cases

What does everyone use to store their batteries and motors?

I use a couple of these to hold all my batteries. Works great! Not sure of fitment with saddle packs.

Racers Edge makes a motor case just like that too.

Since I run brushless and lipo now, I have one battery and one motor per car - and I keep them in the cars at all times.

Genius.

For you guys that make your own...where do you find anti-static foam. Or do you not use that type of foam.

Please advise.

I went to a caft store (in this case JoAnn's) and picked up a case and some foam. The foam is a high density green foam. It was a 12 x 12 square I think. Cut the foam to fit the case, cut out squares for my motors. Works bitchen and I think I have about 8 bucks into it. I'll post a pic later.

I store my batteries in a lipo sak (I have 2 4s 5000, 1 4s 6000, 1 5s 4350 and 2 2s 6000 packs in two Lipo Saks) and my motors in a Pro Match motor case.
