These are not pit bags but shipping cases. They have wheels and are made for airline travel.

So on the Team Magic bags, would you get the 1/8th version or the 1/10th version? I run 1/10th scale, but I wouldn't mind having a little extra room to grow. Is the 1/8th version just as useful for the 1/10th scale guys?

Definitely get the F8, it has room for at least 2 1/10th cars in the top drawer, as well as a tool caddy, and another four drawers. I brought 2 cars, charger, power supply, tyre warmers, transmitter, batteries, spare parts boxes, shock oils, 5 sets of tyres, set-up board and a folder holding all my paperwork instructions etc, as well as my pit towel, with ease. Weighed in at 27kg at the check in counter, I could still have thrown another 5 kgs in it.

Try these. They are Sportwerks bags made by Magic. Same thing only available from Horizon. Nicer color than Magic's too. Plus around $109.

Only bad thing about the sportwerks bag is that the drawers are cardboard, not plastic like the F8

Ah Rick, you beat me to it.

Yes, the Sportwerks bags are pretty much the same, I saw a couple of guys running 1/8 onroad using them this past weekend at the Byron Race. The only bad thing about it is that the boxes are cardboard.

Simple Solution: Buy a set of replacement plastic boxes when the cardboard ones wear out.

Definitely get the TM if you can, the plastic boxes are so much sturdier than the cardboard ones, and I bet you will have difficulties finding the replacement boxes alone stocked by someone.

If you go to the Team Magic website, there is in depth description of both the 1/8 and the 1/10 scale bags. The difference is about 2.5" front to back, and about the same 2.5" of height more in the 1/8 scale bag. When I bought my 1/8th size, the 1/10th wasn't out yet. I run 1/10th scale electric sedan, and I put a lexan divider in the top drawer running from side to side, essentially creating a front carpartment that is the same as the 1/10th scale drawer, and now having a 2.5" front to back by bag width compartment to the rear. The rear compartment is then perfectly sized for sets of sedan tires stacked up.

I think the Sportwerks is the same as the Magic F10 bag with cardboard boxes instead of the plastic ones. I may be wrong on that though.

As they said above the SW bag has the same amount of storage and is a great bag also. The plastic drawers would be nice to have though

If I don't ship it through, then it will be the less convienent but sturdy plastic storage box I picked up from The Container Store - no compartments, no tool caddy, etc, but it looks to be pretty bulletproof.
To partially respond to my own question, I spoke with Paul Lemieux last night, noticed that he had the 1/8th scale TM bag, and asked him if he had flown with it yet, and if so, how it held up. He took the 1/8th TM bag to the World's in Italy this year, and it survived the overseas airline trip just fine, with just minor marring of the rubber on the t handle. As he said, "since I paid $150 for the bag I better well use it".
