You might want to check out lowes. That's where I bought mines at.

some good choices here. I typically don't box up my car, probably an old habit from not wanting to bend the FM antenna tube, so I'm trying to figure out how much I actually have to bring to the track. I used to use like 8 batteries 2 DC chargers with power supply, and have a bunch of motors to choose from. Now its a small AC charger, 2 batteries, and just running a stock motor. Without a car in there, and a reasonable amount of spares and tools, a smaller box or bag may work.

Anyone tried out the following Duratrax bag? I believe I saw one this weekend at the track. It had three "plastic" drawers and looked substantially bigger than the T8 hauler bags. The bag is $90.

This is what I have. It fits alot of stuff for sure, I carry my short course truck in the bottom, my 1/8th scale and B44 in the middle drawer,and chargers etc in the top, the downside to this is it gets heavy fast and the drawers can be a pain to slide in and out.

Any clue if you'd be able to fit an sc8e in that bag?

I have a Ve8 in there with no problems along with a B44 and a Jammin Scrt10 all at the same time. Im sure fitting a SC8e would not be a problem.

the dimensions from duratrax are

Drawers: (2) 18" deep x 23" wide X 5 1/4" high
(1) 18" deep x 23" wide x 8 1/4" high

and the SC8e is 24.25 long... I guess i could removed the front bumper for transport.

I use the Stanley FatMax rolling toolbox from Home Depot. Roughly $70-80. I'll take a pic of mine tonight to post up, but it holds a lot of stuff:

http://www.stanleytools.com/default....e+Work+Station

In the bottom I can put in my radio bag, soldering iron, large parts container, and other things as needed. In the middle, I use that for tires (holds 1/10 and SC tires perfectly) and batteries. The top portion has a tool tray and a space underneath for 2 "typical" parts trays and shock oil along the sides.

And with those large wheels, it rolls over everything easily.

Thumbs up

I have the Stanley FatMax too. I really like that I am able to fit all my stuff in one hauler and the luggage style wheels and collapsible handle makes going in and out of the track very nice.
the only con I see with the FatMax is that it takes up a bit of space when it is all the way open
