because i love pics. lets see what you carry your tools in, or what you take to the track with you. this is NOT a custom pit box thread like i started many moons ago..

1. Do you carry just a tackle box?
2. Do you carry a hauler box/bag and tool box?
3. Do you use serepate cases.. or tupperware...

take pics. Lets see um.

I love pics!! ;)

and I can carry it in in one trip
That's nice. Way smaller than my setup.


thats my toolbox with attatched lower compartments for spare screws and parts.

each drawer i keep my tools, my wires, the top compartment i keep lubes, brushes, support equipment. its a task... heh.

i then usually carry another box for my tires, batteries, misc items. I think I am going to invest in a Trinity/Associated Car Hauler bag to consolidate.

do i really need all this stuff? probably not.. but have you ever taken what you think you need and end up saying "crap" i dont have.. and buying it at the track? LOL. I mean even with my big box.. i usually end up buying something HAHAHAHAHA.

My batteries, fuel and radio come in with me but the rest stays in the car during the out-door racing season.


I got the toybox when I was 3. That makes it 50 years old. But is still holds my toys.


Just flip open the lid and plug in the soldering iron and I'm ready to go.

the "case with the two chargers" fits inside the tool box it is sitting on.

I just take it out of the box set it on the pit table and plug it in ------oh and its two chargers and two power supplys with fans drawing air in from the sides and top

BadSign,
All it is is a heavy duty cart like you would use for carry on luggaqe. I can't remember for sure, but I believe I got them at Wal-Mart or somewhere like that. Look around in the luggage or travel department. Try to find as "heafty" one as possible to put up with the abuse. One of these carts I've used for over three years and it's still going strong including weekly trips up and down four flights of stairs. Attached is a picture of the cart folded up for storage.

I have one of the old Plano boxes, then I have one of the Craftsman tool boxes, (the big plastic thing that you can stand on).

And I still leave my 30 amp power supply and dyno home

I think I bring entirely to much stuff with me, nah, I know I do.... LOL

My Protege is always full, toolbox, two big bags, radio box, parts box, charger/ps box, chairs, tables...but you know what? Everyone says I bring way too much stuff, but then why am I always the one helping everyone out with tools and parts? :) If I didn't bring it, I think half the racers at our club wouldn't have a complete day!
