In the past 6 months or so I have grown increasingly frustrated with my method of transporting pit gear to the track. Usually I used the Stanley FatMax rolling tool box. It held everything and was pretty sturdy, but being basically 3 toolboxes cantilevered together, it takes up a massive amount of floor space when you open it. Not to mention room in the car. It’s fine when you are racing outdoors and space doesn’t matter.. but at an indoor facility with not a lot of room, you tend to get in people’s way. I went from that, to a rolling tote, to a regular tote you carry, to this, the Pro-Line Track Bag. I also have a fabric full-on r/c pit box with wheels. They each have their pros/cons. We’ll talk about this one specifically today.
This is the Pro-Line Track Bag (6058-02). The bag features luggage quality zippers and material that displays your support with a huge P-L logo. The bag is supported by an inner corrugated plastic housing that protects your stuff and holds the bags shape. This multi-purpose bag will hold a bunch of tires, tools, chargers, batteries or basically anything you need to take you to the track, all while still being small enough to easily fit in the trunk of your car. The Track Bag features a 13 slot Tool Pouch and 3 see through mesh pouches for any extra tools, glue or hardware that you need while at the track. Pro-Line’s Track Bag has an adjustable shoulder strap for easy transport and a completely open top for easy access to your stuff.
Pro-Line’s product description is pretty accurate (above). The bag isn’t enormous, but it looked like it would fit a decent amount of stuff. Here is how it arrived. It ships flat to save space.

Review Platform: We used our Pro-Line modified Traxxas Slash for the review. Our Slash doesn’t have many stock parts on it anymore- it sports the Pro-Line chassis kit, ProTrak suspension kit and Pro-Line shocks. A Castle brushless motor and speedo was used, the servo was from Hitec, a 3S Dynamite Lipo provided the juice, and a Futaba 4PK Super-R controlled the beast.
