    Hi,

    Since I'm considering to buy a pit bag, I need to have some input.

    I was looking to buy this one:

    What do you think?

    Also what pit bag/hauler do you use?

    Thanks

    The J-concepts is quite small I think?
    I'm looking for a bag that fit's ALL my gear :p
    Parts (1 big plastic box 1 medium and 4little), tires (2 B4 carton boxes op tires), tools, charger, other stuff...
    So yeah it has to be big

    I actually like the Pro-line the most: But they don't sell it anymore :(

    Ah ok. Yeah I have a box for all my tools and chargers. Just need something to haul my truck and spare tires and radio. That Proline one is nice.

    I bought the new ProTek Hauler and I got all the things I need to run both my SC10 and my rc8.2e, both electric. It's got a great tool storage in the top and stores all my drivers with elastic individual straps. I love it so far check it out on AMain.

    I use the WGT418 Wing Tote 1/8 scale buggy hauler. The lid is zippered. In this zippered compartment, there are maybe 50 small elastic straps to organize all my hex drivers, nut drivers, screwdrivers, etc. This compartment is deep enough to hold two Plano Stow 'N Go organizers sitting on top of my hex drivers.

    The large top drawer will hold an 1/8 scale buggy with the tires removed. There is room for another buggy secured by the yellow elastic straps on the lid. It gets heavy with a 40A power supply, buggy, etc. but that's the nature of trying to carry everything in one bag!

    • Five polyvinyl drawers.
      Top drawer:
      19.5" wide x 11.5" deep x 7" tall
      Middle drawers:
      9.5" wide x 11.25" deep x 4.75" tall
      Bottom drawers:
      9.25" wide x 10.25" deep x 4.75" tall
    • Advanced shelf and drawer system to ensure smooth operation.
    • Sturdy locking extension handle.
    • Elastic cord on lid to secure accessory bags or 1/8th buggy.
    • Handle is located outside of the bag which increases interior storage space.
    • Reinforced interior framework to hold extra weight.
    • Three exterior pockets for small items.
    • Made with 600 Denier Nylon that is extremely durable and water resistant.

    It wasn't cheap. It was a while ago. I believe it was $175 at a local hobby shop.

    A Main Hobbies has it listed in stock for $169.99. With the coupon code CALPJUL1212 of $12.50 off for orders between $150-$249 plus free shipping for orders over $50, that would make it $157.49. The other coupon codes are CALPJUL125 for $5 off between $100-$149 and CALPJUL1225 for $25 off orders of $250 or more.

    Thanks,

    Only thing is.. I live in Belgium so shipping is going to be expensive..
    I'll look if I can find a shop in EU that sell them.
    I also have a B4, wel B4.1 Can you fit all your tires, parts, charger, batteries, other stuff in it? Is there space left or?

    Yes, I could fit my T4.1 in the big drawer. There is plenty of room left for my 4-channel Hitec charger, power supply and other tools in the other drawers. I could also fit my transmitter in. Fitting a smaller B4.1 with wheels on should be no problem. Best thing to do is if you find a local hobby shop, take your B4.1 with you to see how it fits. I used to put my T4 in the top drawer and strap my SC10 to the lid using the elastic yellow cords that are attached. I don't do this anymore as I am able to keep my hauler at my local indoor track. I use a regular fishing tackle box (Plano 737 angled) for my RC8.2e.

    I have the Racers Edge Bag...you have to assemble the drawer but it does hold a lot of stuff. They give you a platen with stretch slots for your tools but I made a cardboard tray with compartments that holds more.

    WingTote bag is awesome!! I've used it for travel (pay the fee and fly it on the plane!!) I also have the J Concepts bag, great for parts, tires and rims.
