Default Toolboxes - Carrying Cases etc.

So of course, we've all seen the "pit area" thread right? We get to see all the really cool electronic gear, how clean it is.. etc.. but what about a new thread for what kind of "toolbox" you use?

It can be a fishing tackle box, a metal toolbox, tupperware.... but what do YOU carry your tools and misc items in?

So I'll start.



I carry my major stuff in either a nice Plano box, or a Stanely stacker.



I also *used* to use this classic case, which i think I might again though it is heavy...

I also used to carry a duffle.. but i gotta gotta consolidate ;-)

What do you have? =)

I have that same rolling Stanley tool box. It works great but I think I need something bigger now.

Awesome bag. To date, it has been the best investment I have made in this hobby.
If I had any complaint with it, it would have to be the zippers.
They seem low quality and I busted one when I first got the bag. They replaced it no problems, but it seems like it could happen again.
I took out the top plastic supports in mine. (the ones that keep the square shape to the tool caddy on top) Without them, it seems like it closes much easier now without struggling and possibly ruining the teeth on the zipper.
Aside from that, its a great bag.

I'm looking at buying a new car(full scale) right now....and I'm a little hesitant to get one of the cars I'm looking at because I'd have to put the case on the back seat or lay it down in the trunk....

Changing to another means of carrying my track equipment is NOT an option...my next car will accomodate the F8 (even if only on the back seat) or I will find a different car to buy...

I had the old 10th scale bag from TM, then for crimbo last year I got the F8 bag and its been awesome!!! I also use the trinity bags for motors and batteries, as well as a poly butler for the rest of the spares and tools, as can be seen here.

Your Poly Butler looks very convenient. Does anyone know of a U.S. importer?

If you don't take mountains of stuff to the track, consider the Team Magic 1/10 bag too. It's a little cheaper, smaller, and just as nice as its big brother.

i put my F8 bag on the back seat of my tundra all the time, i have the access cab (small rear seats) but it fits perfectly. i used to have a g35 2 door and had to put my losi bag in on it's side. i just made sure to pack my towels over any boxes that could potentially open.
