Default Polybutler Pit Box

I keep seeing this cool box at European races, anybody know if they are available in the US? They come in different colors too. Here is a pic.

Yeah they are sweet. I have one (I'm from the UK) but no idea of you can get them over there.

One feature most people don't advertise is that the front lid/panel actually comes off aswell so it fits on the end of your pit table nicely. See Pic

I know http://www.apexmodels.co.uk/ over here in the UK have the Polybutler's (Part #: APEX149) and I think they will ship to the US.

Give them an email and ask....

54.95

thats about $100 by my calculations. However if you are clever wth mail order you might be able to miss out the VAT which will save you 17.5%.

Yeah unfortunately everything over here is pretty pricy. If someone imported it you would probably be getting it at about $60.


Heres an example:

US TC4 = $209.99
UK TC4 = 189.99 = approx $347!

Default Try this US made box instead

If you want a good pit box in the USA maybe you should take a look at this because they are made in the USA. I have been trying to get one in the UK but they don't export to the UK yet, I have got a poly butler but if it falls over in the car everything gets mixed up and it's fiddly to put it all together at the end of the day, this thing even fastens itself! they are at http://www.pdysystems.com/rcmod/

That guy looks and talks like Mike Ditka's brother who didn't play football.

You need some kind of award for resurrecting THE OLDEST thread on rctech.

It was what, 1400 days between the last post and yours?
