Default Quality of Kyosho Pit Box vs Plano Box

Has anybody out there had the chance to compare the quality of the Kyosho Pit Box (1776/80461) with the Plano hard boxes (757 for example).

I'm buying blind here and don't want to special order something that is a bit flimsy. I've seen a few of the other Plano boxes (1374 for example) and the plastics are surprisingly flexible - are the hard drawer versions stronger?

Thanks.

Plano builds an excellent box and their customer service is top notch, they will gladly send you replacement parts at no cost to you. No complaints here.

I use the Plano 7771 GUIDE SERIES type box.

I think it is an older (cheaper) version that I use. I really like the removable clear boxes that you can mix and match. I run several different types of cars and I have different plano drawer boxes for each type of car. I put all my tools in the top compartment, and can mix and match drawer boxes as needed when I go to the track. Sometimes I just take a drawer box out and use that for the day to "travel light". You can buy extra clear boxes and use them for different cars if you run out of space.

I also like the compartment next to the drawers for bigger items like tires and it has smaller clear boxes for tiny parts. You can use as needed or take them out to store larger items.
