The Duratrax hauler bag! (http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXZVB3&P=7)

This is one of the biggest hauler bags available! I went from 2 separate hauler bags to one Duratrax bags!

I can carry everything for my buggy and truggy in the Fat Max. About the only thing I don't have room for is my soldering station. However, I have been considering getting one of the Stanley tubs with the wheels as I know for fact I can fit EVERYTHING plus a dead body in one of those.

Something kind of like this.

I use the protek bag but there are many versions of this bag and I sometimes take an upgrade roller duffel. The upgrade roller is great for practice it all fits in there. And then at large events where I'm runnig e stuff too I take a second protek roller bag. I take too much $h!t with me I'm trying to scale it down but when I do I always news that one thing that I left at home.

Yes, the duratrax bag has rollers and a pull-out handle. I have not found any online pictures of the bag, other than the exterior one. If I remember, I will take some tonight.

Protec and Racer's Edge bags are the same size and you can find both at A-Main (Protect for sure)

I believe A Main is the only one that caries the bag under the Pro-Tec name. Seems like the Racer's Edge bag is out of stock everywhere, even Racer's Edge...

King Kong Box. This is sold on the Military Base for $54.99

Poly Truck Boxes, Width 24 in, Length 40 in, Height 19-1/2 in, Retractable Handles, and All-Terrain Wheels.

It can be used as a work area and/or pit table.This a an idea of how big the Box is using an E Revo and Savage XL.



I have both the E Revo with 3.8 series tire and Savage XL with 40 series tire, (2) Transmitters, (2) gallons of Nitro fuel, (4) LIPO's, Hyperion Battery Charger, tools in tool box, NIP parts, with room avaliable. Basically everything I need to run both the RC's plus room to spare


I use the cutting channels for spare tire/wheels

Had the Fat Max, outgrew it and was clumsy in the pits. Used the Mugen 3 drawer bag, this worked ok but drawers got stuck alot and it didn't have wheels. I quickly grew to hate it. Just picked up the Racers Edge bag last week from Amain, must've been one of the last couple lol. It's sweet. Still got several Dialed Inc bags too, I also bring too much crap with me to races, looks like I'm moving in lol. But Id rather have it and not need it than forget/leave it and need it. Racers Edge ftw.
