I got two boxes similar to both. I have a rolling one from Black and Decker, about that size, that breaks down into two, but they both fit the bigger tools and even my starter box and charger. Then I have a box like the plano, except, I can't find the name of the company anywhere on the box... , but it is just as big, but it looks a little nicer ('rounded' edges is all that constitutes looking nicer).

I'm using this Plano 777 box. Holds everything you need. I use a regular ol B&D toolbox for my tools.

Here you can see my 2 plastic containers i bring with my while i run my nrs4. A small tackle box and a small plastic rectangular one. If you notice there is my ole RB concepts c12 turbo in my rs4. I miss that engine so much.......escuse me i need a moment.......

..ok i am better. If i really get into r/c again ill invest in a big tackle box like some of you have in the pics.

Actually, I was eyeing that box myself. That removable compartment on the right side is perfect for storing AE/Trinity shock oil bottles. I think it can hold eight of them in there.

i am using that plano 777 box. yes, the right upper side you can store an assortment of various stuff such as CA, tapes, after runs etc and the lower right is a perfect fit for.12 engine storage. I put my spare engine inside that clear plasic box you can put up to 3 spare engines there.

the left stowaway box is double layer each and you can order extra incase you race with different car.

Sorry, the one I was thinking about is the 737. same concept but with three drawers instead of the two stowaways.

Wow these are just what Ive been looking for, anyone know where I can find a dealer? I know they dont sell this kind of stuff at home depot and lowes. How much do these things cost? That box that mckrooz posted looks perfect for my needs.

This is what I use at the present. Ample room for all my small tools and more. For the bigger stuff like my plano boxes of spare parts, tires, starter box, fuel, etc.... I use a Losi pit bag.

I just went out and bought a new Plano tackle box, similar to the old Plano box I had for a couple of years.

The handle broke off the 2 day I used it. The Plano boxes are great, but they're not built to handle the weight of stuff we want to put in them.

I got that box at Sports Chalet for $40 on sale. I think regular price is $60. You can find it at most sporting goods stores. Turners Outdoorsman has it but it's $60+.
