An update.

I decided to get the F8 from RC-Compound. 169.99, no shipping and no tax . Shipping was waved for the price.

At the same time I was looking at getting it from Brooklyn Hobbies. 159.99, but shipping was 17, bucks or so.

Amain hobbies shot up to 184.99.

Ace Hobbies, I didn't get a chance to call about pricing ... Sorry they are closeing

Trinity / Shop-a-tron, says its backordered do to its popularity.

Dinball / RcMart - 164ish but 100 bucks in shipping ouch

I was also unable to find the f10 available any where. I also looked for the Sportwerks 1/8 bag, but again was hard to find. I did get a google search that led to a thread on this site which named the distributer, I think Mr. Shookie was the one with the name. From that website I was able to find a couple of places that had them but weren't in stock.

I hope that helps anyone in the future.

That is for the inner boxes. I haven't seen the big box anywhere but AE's site.

It's backordered, but you can get the F8 bag from omnimodels.com for $179.99 shipped with their $15 off coupon.

The F-8 bag pretty much carries most of my stuff.
For everything else I use an "Art-Bin"
It's the kind used for art supply storage.
The one I have is pictured below. It collapses nicely and fits a ton.

I just bought I TM F8 bag today and I am now thinking why didn't I get one earlier. To be able to fit everything (including 2 TCs and setup board) is make racing a lot easier (except on my back, it weighs a ton full )

I use this:



It is $60.00 at lowes, the top box locks to the bottom when wheeling around. Both have removable trays on the top. The smaller toolbox has a little box on the top of that you can seperate and is great for misc parts, motors and other stuff.

The top tool box fits my 1/10 scale sedan with body on it, on top of that is the tray which carries all my screwdrivers and commonly used tools. The big box below holds all my equipment on the bottom and there is a big tray on top that is deep which holds other tools and misc things and both with plenty of room to spare. You could put a second car in the bottom box.

As for the team magic bag, it is an awesome bag but its $200.00!! I would have bought one if I didn't find the box above, I love this box set!

They really should market it not only as an 1/8th scale bag but a two car 1/10th scale bag. I, like you, love the fact that the top drawer easily holds two touring cars (or 1/10th scale plus one Minicooper for me), plus all the parts and supplies you normally need in the four drawers below. I've had mine for about a year now (got one when they first came out) and it is holding up well in weekly use locally plus one airline trip so far. Only problem is keeping it under 50# for the airlines!
