Well as a manufacturer, I am use to and always welcome constructive criticism but for anyone to question the quality of something they DO NOT OWN and have not even seen yet, I will defend that to the death. The PRO BOX is a one of a kind patten pending RC pit box. With a year and half of design and prototype time, with all CNC construction, REAL tool draws with dado slides, a 100 foot cord real built on, 7" ball baring rubber wheels designed so you can roll PRO BOX up and down stairs, storage for up to 2 1/8 scale buggy’s, permanent mounting for all of your electronics, the side work table option allows you to pit with out a table, our optional draw liners are the same draw liners used by the General Electric Company in their jet engine facility. SO, if this sounds like "CRAP" to you, you must reside on a different planet from the rest of us. If you have any real questions, I would be more than happy to answer them for you but even better, PM M2_DRIVER, he is a real PRO BOX owner and can tell you all about them with no sales involved. My theory is to build the best product I possibly can and let my customers make the choice. I have been doing it for 13 years and I am not going to stop now.

thats funny, the first thing I did was go to the links you have and I see one for a compnay that sells and fancy looking aluminum thinga majiggy to hold the battery bar while you solder it, are you kidding me.....c'mon if it is something you dont like then fine, no need to show your ignorance by bashing something. I dont own one, I know the Rick, the guy that sells them, and know he puts out a quality product. the ones he has sold are reliable, strong and the owners love them. No cardboard boxes that break after two months and plenty of space to store all your junk, even has space that battery bar holder.

What battery bar holder? I can't find it. I can only find that huge Probox, It's definitely not for everyone, whether it's a good design or not, everyone can have their own opinion. There is nothing wrong with what Barry White said. I also find that Probox a bit "too much", like Barry White's hair.

Of course eveybody can have an opinion, but so many of these threads start out with good intentions and turn into product bashing which really sucks.

Default our travel cases

we use two of these:

http://tinyurl.com/zxxmj

they are 48 inches tall and about 23 inches wide, with wheels on the bottom. I've taken corrugated cardboard and built an inside frame. I use various plastic cases to hold evertyhing and stack the cases into the luggage.

At the track we unload at the table then roll our bags out of the way.

Without the gear inside the luggage with the courrgated is about 8 lbs each case.

I like that big pitbox because of the drawers. But the weight of the box without gear might make it too heavy for the kids to move it around.

Empty it probably weighs around 40 pounds or so. I have mine COMPLETELY filled with stuff, and I have no problem lifting it in and out of my Jeep. It comes apart in the middle, so I store my cars, radio, and big items down below, and then all of my tools and spare parts in the drawers on top.

I will try to get some pictures of my setup and post them later.

Default Foam Cushioning

I thought this thread would be best to post this question to.

I'd like to create my own boxes for storage of radio gear, chargers, power supplies and batteries. I'm like to have the stuff nestle into foam for impact protection.

What kind of foam do I buy, where do I get it, and the bigger question.....how do I custom cut it so that the equipment fits nicely?

I wish someone would make a bag like the F10 with just car transport in mind. I've got the F8 and love it, but I'd love a bag just for my cars. When my son comes with me to the track I've been known to take 4 cars along...

Perfect bag would be f10 size, long drawers with an inch to spare height wise for a TC to fit...
