For clarification, the Team Magic and Sportwerks are the same bags. Only difference besides the coloring is that the Team Magic bags come with plastic corragated boxes as apposed to cardboard. I have the Sportwerks version of each of the bags and yes the 1/8 one gets heavy quick of you put stuff in it. I would not be able to put it on an airplane right now w/o getting an overweight charge. But the damn thing stores a lot of stuff!! I only wish the 1/10 bag had the same wheels as the 1/8 one. The smaller bag comes with cheap plastic wheels where the 1/8 one has inline skate wheels which roll over rougher surfaces better. I have also had to replace the zipper on the one side of my 1/8 bag but I think that is due to me having more in that bag then it was made to have in it. I highly recommend either.

Honestly I am still tryin to find that answer myself. As of right now I just have the boxes in my 1/8 taped but they were not in need of it, just did it for more support. My 1/10 boxes are holding up well and have not required any tape as of yet.

Also another option is to got Wal-mart and buy a Deluxe Truck orginizer" box for $16! I used to have the Trinity hauler bag with the 3 boxes and wheels. I have found that for the $16 I can get more stuff in the Black box than I could EVER get in any of my other boxes/bags.

I went from having to make 3-4 trips to my car on a race day to 2!!!

Also if you ever plan on flying to a race the box from Wal-mart can be locked and is a HARD plastic case.

Just something to think about..

Are you just using packing tape? I get my Sportwerks next week and just want to protect it all I can. I have the old Skullz 3 Casket Hauler, and the boxes are shot. I've tried just about everything to keep them in shape. But it's not working. Thanks, Bailey.

Yeah that is what I am using at the moment. It was more for support rather then the drawers being shot. If I figure something out about the corragated plastic ones I will let you know.

Thanks
