Default Hauling all of your Gear

Looking for good, inexpensive solutions to hauling all of your gear to the track.

I realize there are pricey hauler bags, but for club racing, something effective and practical.

I'm likely going to be toting a 2wd buggy, and an SCT. Between that, batteries, chargers, radio, etc, etc. what's everyone using, or am i just best off getting a hauler bag, and calling it a day?

I use those containers with a built in folding cover. I use two of them . Dimensions are 18x14x12 approximately. Cost was between $5 - $10 for each one. I do have a folding cart that I use to move them from my car to the area I'm pitting

A lot of guys around here use Ogeo (I think I have the name wrong) motocross hauler bags. Something with wheels would be great. I have a Protek box with drawers and wheels and wish I hadn't.

Ty Tessman has a bit on youtube about how to pack for a race.

i made the mistake of buying a protek super hauler about a year ago, i got about way through trying to load it up with gear and gave up.

i hate the thing, and quite frankly as someone still new to the racing scene am pretty much embarrassed to even own it.

I use a rolling storage container that I bought at home depot. Fits all my stuff plus the car. Something similar to this one http://www.homedepot.com/p/Stanley-2...026R/203367133

I had the same bag when I ran offroad and I could get both my buggy and SCt inside with tires on the sides. It was a decent pack to have

I use http://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-22-in-Connect-Cantilever-Toolbox-230378/207138794

I keep spares up top and carry my b6d inside w/ charger, batteries, and a 4pv. Having foam to cut out and stack keeps it organized.

Also stacks with the roller base quite well if you want to haul more than the basics.

This is the system I use.

Husky 22 in. Connect Rolling System Tool Box-230381 - The Home Depot

With an add on piece.

Husky 22 in. Connect Cantilever Toolbox-230378 - The Home Depot

There is also another organizer for parts for those who do multiple types of racing. Just swap parts boxes depending on what type of racing you are doing.

Husky 22-Compartment 22 in. Connect Cantilever Organizer for Small Parts Organizer-230379 - The Home Depot

I saw guy at the track with a similar system from Ridgid that worked well for him. This Husky system is cheaper than Ridgid, but it is not as heavy duty. It is still well built, but not construction site durable.

Getting to and from the track has gotten a lot easier for me since I got this system. All the boxes detach from each other to make carrying in the house and putting in the car easier. I can fit 3 touring cars in the bottom or 2 buggies. 1/8 scale or short course will not fit. Controller, liquids, soldering iron and miscellaneous tools/setup tools go in the middle box. I use the top box for off road part storage since it has larger containers. I leave this at home when I go on road racing. I use the add on box with the smaller parts containers to store my on road car parts and tools used most often in the top center. The add on box has a large storage area underneath the cantilever top to hold chargers and batteries.

I think it depends on where your racing. when I am doing outdoors I bring a small trailer enclosed trailer that I use as my pit area for the kids and me. Just pack everything into tubs to keep things organized works great. Also bring along an easy up.

If i am racing indoors during the winter I have an Ogio 9800 that I picked up used for a really decent price. I love it. I can fit both my buggy's (2wd and 4wd), controller case, charger, a parts box for each car, tool roll (from menards), tires, manuals and lipo's in it. Then I just bring a small tub with misc stuff (extra tire building stuff and liquids).

My kids have the Jconcepts backpacks that they use.
