Default Trinity T8 Hauler

Just wanted to ask anybody with the Trinity T8 Hauler, is having the same problem I'm having. I bought a Trinity T8 1/8 Hauler about 6 months ago and now its just falling apart on me and wanted to know if anybody else is having the same issue.

Thanks

DON'T WANT TO SOUND NEGATIVE!!!

But, my Team Magic bag is a POS. Drawers get stuck, bands ripping etc. I was hoping to get the new Proline Bag, but they decided not to release it.

Probably not what you want to hear but I don't really have any major issues with mine other than the lower left drawer takes a little more effort to get open but other than that it's been good.

i got mine for christmas. trimmed the back of the drawers down so that the little plastic top strip sits flush or lower than the rest of the box, then rounded off the front edge of the same plastic top strips. all my drawers move in and out smoothly.

as far as wear...nothing that i can tell thats not normal.
i love this bag.. it holds everything i need for race day.
minus my controller and fuel.

Default T8 Bag

I have both haulers. Drawers on the Team magic are smooth. Not so much on the Trinity bag. I glued the plastic thingys but did not round them off yet. That might fix the problem.

I have had mine since Christmas as well. Only issue I had was the latch on one of the zipper's broke but other than that it is great. You definitely have to trim the boxes though. It has made it a lot easier to haul all of my stuff around.

I was looking at my friends since mine has been on backorder for 4 months and a couple of problems I see is first the drawers are only held together with one sonic weld. If you pull off the black plastic strips you will see a small circular impression that welds the pieces of plastic together. There should be more than one weld. Would there be any interest in after market drawers for this bag. I work for a packaging company and make these things everyday. The plastic drawers could actually be upgraded also. We have stronger 3mm material than what comes with them. I was wondering also if the shelves actually dip down from the weight which would cause them to hang up. I will post when I get mine and test out some drawers. Terry - Sumo Racing.

Youve been T8 Bagged!

Actually, I'm in the market for a bag, so this is good news to know about. Thanks for bringing it up.
