Default BEST PIT BAG???????

I am in the market for a pit bag. I wanted to get some opinions on what the best bag is for the money. I personally could care less if it is RC specific I just want one that will hold up for a few seasons and not break the bank.

I'm fairly happy with the Ofna bag. The radio bag that is included is too big for my liking but I'm very happy with the tool bag and hauler bag. I'm able to store everything in the hauler with the exception of fuel and radio.

Stanley tool makes a nice roll around box that can hold everything you need but Dialed Inc (they have a thread on here) makes a carrying bag for the Buggy and a bag for tires (holds 6 sets) great quality.
My set-up is a Stanely tool roll-around box to carry all my parts, radio, tools, oils, etc. And then i have my buggy bag and tire tote from Dialed.

Here's the link to the Dialed thread

Just get one of these: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/t...uctId=10004100

Just get some Plano/Bass Pro Shop boxes for your tools and parts. The trunk holds everything! You can even fit a gallon of fuel or two standing up with about an inch to spare. They also come with durable wheels and the case is light too.

But by pit bag are you talking about hauler bags or a pit bag like the Mugen pit caddy? If you mean pit caddy, I use a Husky tool caddy that is similar to the Mugen but was a *lot* cheaper. Check your local Home Depot.

i use a t8 and a 50gallon tub. team magic makes an sort of upgraded version of the t8 that seems to have better features such as handles are riveted on and other things that make it worth a few extra bucks. these big tubs are nice cause you can just throw everything in there without trying to be too organized(lol) and its actually kind of convenient to pull the lid off and grab what you need. with the hauler bags you gotta remember what drawer its in sometimes can be a pain

I was using this one for all of my 1/8th scale needs, more than sufficient enough. I now use the smaller one since I am only running 1/10th scale. With pit bags/hauling equipment it is hard to say anyone is more superior than another. Just get one that will have enough space, and take care of it.

I am getting one of these from the LHS. The owner has one and I have seen the great job it does of holding all the tools and everything else.

I just need some foam to make sure the tools stay in the right spot.

I bought the proline roller bag back in sept and I love it so far. It holds everything and rolls easy. Before I was using a craftsman rolling tool box, it was ok but things were very disorganized. With the proline pit roller bag everything stays much more organized and I have more room too. If you want a roller bag I like the proline one.

Thanks for the input guys but I was actually talking about a pit bag. You know like the Hudy one. It is what you use to carry your starter box, fuel bottle and whatever tools you may need to the pit station.

As far as my over all RC carry bag. I use the trinity T8

Then def. that hudy one looks great. The owner of the team and LHS uses that one and has a ton of room to spare.

Ah, I thought that might be the case. Yeah, you could get the Hudy or Mugen pit caddy but save yourself some money (in the Hudy's case a *lot* of money) and hit up Home Depot. The Husky tool caddy works fine and is maybe $30 or so.
