Default Buggy Box What do you think?

I have been working on finding a good solution to hauling all of our gear around to the track and to pit lane. I finally got off my butt and designed something on cad after talking to people about what they might want. After drawing something up and changing it serveral times I got some metal laser cut. I would like to hear what you think. It holds a starter box on top and is adjustable. You can put a buggy inside or use the drawer for radio and gear or put a truggy on the starter box and buggy inside. It weighs 7.5 lbs

It looks fantastic. I'd buy one. Maybe slightly enlarge the holes for the nylon straps and add rubber grommets. Do I see a large spot for a fuel gun near the red ended drivers?

Nice work, can you post photos of the draws? Take it they come out the end opposite the fuel bottle/tool stand?

What thickness material did you make it from? Been thinking about making one myself.

Default buggy box

It is made from 16g aluminum and only weighs 7.5lb. If you look I taped a hole for a plug and the four large holes can be used for rebuilding shocks.The empty 2inch hole is for a fuel gun I dont own one so I guesed on the size If you have one and could measure yours and let me know if it is big enough. After looking at it finished I think I can make it even smaller. 2inches shorter and not so long the fuel bottle hole is 4inches and could be made smaller. Someone said to put two small holes for body clips so I will do that to.I want every one to give me more thoughts on ways to improve it and make it better before I redo it again. For some reason I can not get more pictures to up load so you can see it better I will take some more and try again. I put rubber feet on the bottom and did not work well on uneven surfaces pit walls and tail gates so I left them off and it stands much bettter. The drawer is 11.5x16x5 Lots of room for radio, tires,batterys and stuff.

Come up with a good name for it and I will give you one!
