Are there any other cool "subtle" features I can't see?
The cool thing about the new one with screws on the bottom is that you can turn the bottom plate upside down to accomodate slightly taller starter boxes. You just need to put some big, flat type rubber feet on the bottom so you don't scratch up the bottom.

YO, KEV....DDUUUUUUUUUUUUDE!! What is going on my friend!!! I will call you later bro!

Here are some pics of the pit box I made like 10 years ago. I still use the thing to this day unless I travel. That's where the RB box is nice, is it breaks down to allow you to travel with it. Sweet!! Anyway, check out my pics and you can see that I glued on some spacers to issolate spots for the temp gun and fuel bottle. I also drilled holes to hold hex wrenches and whatnot. Just an idea for ya. Later.

Dude, thanks. Nothing pretty, but VERY functional and bullet proof. No one made Pit boxes when I did this one like I mentioned about 10 years ago. I ended up with an RB as well. They are very nice no doubt. It is a shame that some other company doesn't come out with a pitbox. After all, it's almost a necessity for racers. Something that's similar but with different anodized colors to choose from and stuff. I'm sure it would be a big hit. I did see someone copy the RB box out of carbon fiber. Dude, it is way killer!! And I am sure that it is extrememly light compared to the RB box. But I can't complain, I love my RB box.

Does Billy have a web site we can go to. I know I have his phone number here somewhere (I've known Billy for years), but it would be nice to see the stuff that he carries. I know he carries lots of different cool things. Thanks.

Mugenville got it at the local hardware.
He found them in stock and we got one each!
I think that the design is basically like the old carpenter's carryall tool boxes made of cloth etc. and a heap of pockets.
shame it isn't quite big enough to fit the tourer in there on top of the starter box as well

This is what I use - the top can hold a 1/10th car, the bottom holds my transmitter in its box, the 3 draws are sectioned to hold tools & parts. It's on wheels, and each compartment comes apart separately. All in all, the perfect pit box.
