Does your pitbox have an engine, roof and a few wheels attached??? You either must be the tidiest packer in the world, or use a excursion to carry all that.

All of that will fit in one hauler. I bought my first 1/8 hauler thinking I would have all my gear and a car in it. Wrong. It fills straight up will all you need at the track and possibly spares for 1 car.

I have a Plano Phantom Pro for a pit box. Everything but the Simple Green, Tire wash tub, and soldering Iron station fit. I used to put my Hyperion charger inside too, ha ha.

What are you guys using for pit boxes that they don't fit much stuff? a shoe box?

In the old days, I used to keep the bottom drawer filled with NiMH batteries and brushed motors, the box was really heavy back then.

it really depends you have to marshall in between you're races

also some of the short course truck are hard to fix cant fit the normal hex tool in there except for short l handle ones. they wont stop the race it really depends on who you are. some races have stopped for half a hour cause the owner blew up his motor.

also the fact that im not fastest at fixing stuff i break at rc also the fact that im pissed off that do-sent help me fix it faster

Cool man, I wasn't judging or saying you sucked or anything. If you need to take your time to fix something right, than do it. Sometimes rushing presents it's own problems.

Dude, I want to pit next to you. I'll just "borrow" anything I don't have!
Just kidding, I too bring it all and usually end up loaning to others who forgot.
