Default HOLY STORAGE ISSUES, Batman!

Ok, so I am starting to get more into the hobby, and I am coming into the issue of storage... I have a number of rollers I purchased to rebuild a car, and I will get 1 car, 1 roller, and a number of misc parts... I have a couple of little storage boxes with small slots to hold misc pieces/screws/etc. I have a tool box, and some tupperware-type boxes for storage of bigger items...

Would people post pics of their storage setup? I am willing to put money into it, but I need to know what works best.

I will have a total of 5 1/10 cars/trucks in various states of (dis)repair, 2 1/16, and the associated parts...

I am at work and cannot post pictures while here...

Are you asking about while at home?
I use the stacked "craft" bin type things, 3 or more drawers in a rack, for the pit table. While the cars not being used are on a shelf or the floor or wherever.

If your asking as how to pack all the stuff to take with you each time you go to the track(s)?
Pit bag (many models to choose from) + Bungees + 3 Box bag (Trinity/AE/Others) + several trips back and forth from car to pit area

In general I use seperate Plano type parts boxes = each specific for useage.
Gear/Driveline:
Shock/Servo:
Electrics:
etc etc ... a couple larger ones for plastics like arms and such

I know the feeling! One month in and we are up to 4 cars in the family already and I've had to give up a couple shelves in my "big car" parts storage. Flambeau makes stackable storage units that fit removable tackle boxes that I use for my specialty big car parts that would work well for RC stuff but they are about $80 for a 5 box unit. As for holding cars I have the growing fleet on an adjustable shelf unit that you could buy at Home Depot or Costco.
