I bought a Snap-on roller bag off ebay for about the same cost or less than most brand name bags. Will fit 2 cars without a body attached plus lot of parts, etc.

I use a Wingtote Pro Roller Buggy Tote. Not bad but I wish the wheels were larger as they are useless on anything less than smooth asphalt.

I really like that snap-on bag. Wing tote is a very good carrier also, I have had one for probably 3 years now. Even though it's pricey, I started using the Ogio rig9800 bag. Built very good, and a lot of storage room. I just looked on eBay, seems average price is $200+, but I bought mine on there for $170/free shipping, about the same price most 1/8th scale haulers sell for. Be careful of the cheaper ones. Jconcepts makes a 3 drawer thing that I tried for my kid and threw out, it was horrible.

Well I currently have a Trinity T8 Hauler plus a second T8 spare but really think about getting a Pelican Case. All the soft hauler bags just don't last. A local racer has Pelican cases and they are strong, nice, and well made.

I have the Ogio bag, it's the best race bag I ever bought. The ones in the pits next to me at the reedy race looked brand new, Travis said they were 10 years old.

I use the same Wingtote bag and love it. I have had 2 other brands and the Wingtote has lasted the longest (2-3 years). I recently had an issue, which was totally my fault and decided to give Wingtote a call and to my surprise they stood by their product. I can guarantee you that I will NEVER purchase any other brand of hauler bag!!!

I have a wingtote Pro Roller and a Hudy Roller that I bought second hand. I really liked the storage of the wing tote and the way the drawers come out the side. I hated hauling through tight pits and my house. The Hudy holds a little more and rolls through the pits and my house easier just having the drawers come out the end is a pain. Just the price of a new one is a bitch.

Racer's Edge 1/8 bag gets my vote... Mine is 3 years old, and still going strong.

I've recently converted from a hauler bag with wheels to and Ogio 9800 bag.

With the Ogio bag you have to put everything in boxes, but it holds lots more and is very easy to move around. So far I'm liking it much better then the Hauler bag.

Fastrax Compact Hauler bag, cheapest I could find and not disappointed. Can fit 5 batteries, charger, power supply, transmitter, setup board, tyre warmers, tyre box, lubricants, and whole loads of part.
All in all, great.
