Default Carrying all yer Crap!

Time to find a better way to get my stuff to the track. The objective is to get it all from the car to the pits in one trip.

Currenly I'm using a Multiplex metal case for tools & parts and a large paintball gear bag for the cumbersome stuff (lamp, fan, power strip, soldering iron, charger, etc). By the time I get to the pits I have a sore neck (meow ).

What do you use? I was just at Home Depot looking at rolling toolboxes but didn't see any that appeal to me (the appealing ones aren't big enough). They had a new HUGE one with wheels but I don't know if it the damn thing would even fit in my SUV and it didn't have any inner dividers

Anyone found a cool setup for trucking/organizing it all around? pics or part numbers?

Three giant tub things with lids on a rolling cart thingy. And a Trinity car carrier bag.

I need a new toolbox but I don't want something massive. Nothing seems to have room for the hex drivers and also for batteries and motors. I need a box and can't find a tackle box that will work. I'm thinking of getting a machinists box. Anybody have any good ideas for a descent box and not a giant tub for tools, motors, and batteries. Also, does anybody know where to by the motor tubes? They're great but I can' find them anywhere.

I've looked at the craftsman but I need something with dividers and maybe different size drawers. All tools, motors, batts, and parts need to go in the box. I can carry the car, charger, power supply, and radio seperate. Anymore ideas would also be appreciated.
Thanks

I was at Wal-Mart super store Last night and saw two cariers Both the same designe one was a tackle box with dividers and places for small things with a sepprate lower box for larger things. It had a folding handle, wheels,and lots of space. It would be a great hauler.On the other hand there was the same design by [email protected] i thinkor Stanley it was the same as above but without all the dividers. If you want all the places to put those little things the tackle box is the wat to go for $30 .If haulin larger thing was what you were after the other was a steal at 1/2 the price. With all my gear i would still need to have one of those large tube with wheels. A good Boyscout is always prepaired!!!! Wal-Mart has it all for haulers!!!!

I keep all my crap in a couple of Xray bags and a hard case for my transmitter. I find it easier to have my stuff split up, it is easier to move around as each bag is not that heavy, and I can leave stuff I rarely use in the car. The Xray bags are the best out there ( imho ). I can fit my car, Turbo 35, Iron, all my batteries and motors, and some other stuff in one bag.

i just bought a Plano 737 tackle box and it works great! since i dont have so many tools and parts...i have lost of room for most stuff! took out 2 drawers so i have space to put my chargers and batteries. i have one of those 3M hooks at the back of my box so when i want to move from the car to the track in one trip, i could just hook my 12th scale at the back and just haul everything!!
