The club has house transponders that you can borrow for each race night. You'll need to ream a hole in your car's body somewhere to insert the transponder through. Since it's somewhat heavy/bulky you may want to play with the placement a bit (it'll affect center of gravity, weight distribution, etc.).

Most of us run RC4 (or Hybrid) transponders since they are small and light and can tuck in among the electronics, but they're not required by any means.

When my current bag dies I think I'm going with this one, Jake:

http://www.prolineracing.com/pit-gea...ne-hauler-bag/

It's a bit smaller than the Racer's Edge, though admittedly not by a lot. I think it's a sturdy bag, though.

The Hudy 1/10th bag is definitely smaller, but I don't like how the boxes come out the end rather than front.

If you want a smaller version of the racers edge I would look at the team magic hauler bags. I think Franko has one but i dont know which model.

There are plenty of options for bags without rollers.

Thanks guys,
The proline bag looks great, very comparable to my racers edge bag, but also as noted, about the same size ( if not a tick wider ) than the racers edge bag. I need something narrower so I'll be getting the Team Magic bag. Unfortunately for me, I already purchased the new silver edition of the racers edge hauler bag. Rather than ship it back to Amain I'd rather sell it to a local for $160. It's still in the shipping box so it's NIB. Let me know ( via PM ) if anyone is looking for a great bag at a discount. And again, thanks for the advice, it helped greatly.

Jake, buddy you do need to downsize that casket of rocks. I recall grabbing your bag at the end of an evening to get it up the stairs. You yelled out: "no!" As I hoisted it up the first few inches, I felt some snapping, the sound of compressing vertebrae, my liver smashed my spleen and I gasped. I made it up the stairs then passed out.

Jake, some words of advice: leave some at home, like 3/4's of that.

Tim, I have a BUNCH if you need. I'll even cut 'em if you need. Are you still trolling that Lynnwood hotel with all the questionable ladies by the dumpster? Not saying that's my neighborhood, but it's close.

A race at the CC is basically like a bachelor's party*, skip yours and come down to ours

* if you don't mind a Boyle doing the dancing

Can't even get the month right, you might have bigger issues than prioritizing rc over a stag.

For example, what do you see in this pic?



*there's no rc truck in the picture*
