I use a Trinity 1/8 pit bag. (one shown is not mine, but same model)
It's a nice enough bag, but I have had nothing but problems with it. The drawers (among other things) are a nightmare to open and close.

For bicycling in yu could try the Bob trailer . It hooks up to the back of the bike and holds plenty, there usually used for touring. I have the racers edge bag, its held up ok , but I have a few complaints about it. When you take the extension handle out it leaves a hole for things to fall out. No removable tool holder, there is one built into the bag, but does not come out.

I have the same bag with the same problem. I fixed the issue by trimming off 1/4 " off the back top of the drawer. Drawers open and close alot easier.

In my FatMax: Depending on what car you have and what you want to carry in it.

I haven't tried it, but I could probably carry one of the cars in the top compartment if I didn't have the two parts trays in there. I might be able to shuffle one of those to the bottom and not carry the other... So obviously, it does depend what you choose to carry and how you want to carry it, but yes, it can hold 1/10 scale cars.

1/8 scale? I have no experience but you might fit one in the bottom compartment with out wheels... But maybe not..

Right now, I use the fatmax for "tools & stuff" and use a duffel (with a cardboard box in it) to carry the cars in.

Sounds like what I got at Walmart for 20 bucks. Check out their website and you will probably see it. Mine works great but I do not carry my truck in it.

I have on of these, and got it at Sears on sale for 19.95. Works so good, I went back to get another one a couple weeks ago and they were all out of stock. they said it was a promotional item and weren't getting any more in.


I just checked and ebay has them for sale in a couple different configurations from $30.oo and up. They are called STOR deluxe rolling toolbox.
