Default transporting my tc5 in a 1/10th box

Ok so i'm now officially into racing my tc5 at various tracks around me. I got a roller, and a few 1/10th cardboard boxes.

My question is, even with teh 1/10th cardboard box, there is ALLOT of room around the car for it to roll and slide around in the box?

How do you / what do you use to secure your cars inside these boxes for transport? Do you transport them with or without the bodies on?

thanks

Use other things, like your pit light, charger, power supply or pit towel. Don't fill the space up with something your not going to use at the track like packing peanuts, extra towels, etc...

well wouldnt he say that he wanted other things in it? he only said his car. if it was dropped with just a car and something soft in it probably nothing would happen unlike having other things inside it without something soft yer screwed.

If your not shipping it pit it in the seat next to you so you will have some thing to look at while you drive.......

Its not glass. If your just crossing town you can set it in the box on top of the stuff in the box any where in the trunk. But if your shipping it.? Pack it all round top and bottom. I would leave the body on it.
