Default Pit box , field box , tackle box, tool box ideas!!!!

Looking to see what everyone is using these days! As tool boxes or tackle boxes or something custom. I know this topic has been discussed before, but it's old and everything is outdated and half of the pics don't even work. So please guys, im looking for some new ideas. Please post pics with model and brand as well.!

Plano Tackle Boxes are very popular because they're cheap and durable, and there are many to choose from. This is the kind of thing you should really make a personal choice for.

Plano 737 is the best I've found. It's big, has normal drawers instead of organizer boxes for the main compartments.

Protek P-8. Love it. Only thing that can't fit is the jug of nitro (it probably could, but I don't want to stuff it in bag as nice as it).

Ive been using a $10 collapsible duffel from WalMart. When it starts getting crappy, i just buy another one.

I was at Lowe's last night and saw this:

Stanley 4-in-1

The bottom compartments seems like it will hold a SCT on its side quite nicely. The upper compartments had lots of storage available. And, when its locked in the tower, it will fit in the trunk of my car nicely .

I have been drooling over that same box but can't force myself to pay the $80 price tag. I have a Kobalt tool box (it came with a 10pc pliers set free) for parts and small stuff. Two big tool bags (Rigid and Hatachi) the Rigid holds 2 SC trucks with out bodies/tires installed, the Rigid holds tires, radios, chargers and batts. I am a carpenter and spend too much time in Lowes for sure!

I recently picked up a few of these for $20 each @ WalMart:

Amazon.com: 92 Quart Camp Footlocker (Single) by Sterilite: Home & Kitchen

I WalMart also sells them in pairs for ~$35:

Walmart.com: Sterilite 92-Qt Footlocker, Set of 2: Storage & Organization

Nothing fancy about them but they allow me to tote a tremendous amount of race gear to/from the track. They're big, stackable, and for the money they're the cheapest portable storage I could find.

I bit the bullet and bought the stanley 4-1 and love it. Holds everything I need and can take it where ever.

Will it hold an SC in the bottom compartment?

I don't think so, I will check tonight. It may laying it on the side, but that isn't cool. I mainly got it to hold the tool bag in the bottom and lots of other stuff I may need when I race. Holds all my tires, radio, and extras.

What would be the issue with laying your sc on its side? I better than on the tires for long term storage

Well, I guess no issue. Anyways took pics last night for anyone (sorry ended up being blurry). The truck does not fit in the bottom, to long.

The bottom area is where I keep the soft tool box at. Plenty of room down there.

I just picked up one of these today. Stanley 018800R Mobile Work Center: Amazon.com: Home Improvement
I got it for $20 at the local wally world and picked up some plano organizers. I plan on putting a battery in the bottom to run my charger and maybe install a couple of speakers in it so I can run my ipod. I plan on putting velcro straps on the removable shelf so I can stap my lipos to it. Debating on where to mount the charger(either on the underside of the lid or in the bottom of the upper box).

I use one of these in black, it's pretty awesome and large bottom area holds 2 sets of tires, radio, charger and other large goodies. Trays slide out and dividers are fully adjustable.
