Default Storing RC cars

How and where do you guys store your rc cars? I have 8 in my room and they are taking up space a bit. Need ideas.

Just trying to come up with a better way to store them so they are less in the way and not taking up as much room. I dont have a garage, so putting up a big shelf to keep them all on is not an option. So what do some of you guys do?

My pit bag has boxes inside big enough to hold my cars. You can get those boxes separately from many companies that make pit bags...using those you can stack them easily and safely anywhere you do decide to store them.

Well not necessarilly storing away. Bad use of words sorry. I mean generally a good place/way to keep them without taking as much space.

I have a big shelf in my room But depending on how heavy they are you can try setting up a pegboard and just holding them vertically by the front arms?

Thats not a bad idea. But I dont want to put a peg board in my room. My problem is, my room is the only place I have to keep them. So just trying to find a way to make it work.

I have a few on my shelf already but cant put all of them on there. Got other things on there and some of them are too wide for the shelf. And I dont have the room to put up a second shelf.

The truth is, a second bigger shelf is probably my best/only option. I just have to find a way to rearrange things to make room for one.

I picked up a book shelf from IKEA for $20, and it didn't take up that much space. Unfortunately, it only holds 6 cars, but you can stack the other 2 on the lower shelves.

That thing takes up lots of room space. I have one of those in my garage, for storing real car stuff.

Yes I have thought about those. But they are a little big. Thats best suited for a garage.

I've always thought a high shelf around the perimeter of a room would be great, about 10" from the ceiling.
