Default Pit bag, starterbox, & buggy carrier

Why is it so hard to find a solution for this. The only company I have found to offer something like this is Team C -
http://www.teamcracing.net/index.php...mart&Itemid=71

I know they are out there. I have seen them around at the large events. My friend is using a normal tool bag from Home Depot that works the same way, but it is very heavy and larger than it needs to be - you also have to jimmy the fuel bottle in there somehow.
I just want my pit guy to only have to carry one thing. This bag that holds all tools/plugs/accessories/starter box/fuel/buggy is that too much to ask for ? =)

Any favorites out there? The Team C bag will take a while to get here. Just looking at options. Thank you in advance.

a cardboard box is more helpful than your reply.

Thank you though, I am sure you meant well.

I wasn't flaming you. They will charge $75 for a nylon bag and a cardboard box. Unless you designed it, don't get offended

It didn't personally offend me. I was just hoping for helpful input. As for the functionality of the bag I don't think it's overpriced.

eljefe - thank you, I saw that option as well. I just want a more traditional tool bag, something I can store a lot of tools in / fuel gun / fuel bottle, whatever else I may need... Really appreciate it though! Honestly more curious in why no other company offers a product like this. Kind of silly. Someone jump on that right now please.

That was just me venting my frustrations on today's manufacturers. Just like the $200 roller bags we buy for racing you would think just one company could make the drawers or containers out of a sturdy plastic instead of that cheap crappy cardboard or flimsy foam core. If there is one thing RC manufacturers should have learned over all these years is that we are not afraid to pay for quality merchandise. It just really pisses me off that there is such crap on the market and we as consumers are stupid enough to pay top dollar for it.

Agreed with this statement.

I don't understand either how $180 roller pit bags come with cheap plastic, or cardboard, drawers that you have to put together and hold together with 2-sided tape.

Certainly we deserve something better than this. I even looked at the Hudy bag thinking they would have improved on the industry norm. Nope. (Not knocking Hudy here, I do love most of their products, and appreciate the craftsmanship they bring to the table).

$180 can buy a lot - I don't think we're getting our $$ worth in the hauler bag department, though.

I don't want to just be a whiner. I believe there does exist a better solution to the current hauler bag....

I ordered one of these off E-bay. Seems like the easiest way to transport your buggy/starter box to the pit. The down side is you'll still need a pit bag.

I put everything in my Mugen pit bag...and carry my buggy. Sure it's not setup on the box and running when I carry it down there....but it's still pretty handy.

Over the years Ive seen a variety of carriers for this stuff. My goal when getting one was caring enough about others not to take up 4 pit spaces on pit lane. Some of these items are cool if you are at the track alone and have plenty of space. When you have larger tracks that run 15 drivers, pit space is limited.

With that said, I use a $19 Home Depot bag that carries everything needed for the pits.
