This is the ProTek R/C P-8 1/8 Scale Buggy Super Hauler Bag. The P-8 Super Hauler Bag has evolved, and now features a variety of improvements that make the P-8 a durable, high quality, easier to use piece of luggage. These improvements include plastic interior framing and additional velcro surfaces that secure the shelves on the sides and rear, to prevent the shelves from sagging and causing the drawers to hang up when they are being pulled out or slid into position. Protective zipper tabs have been added to the front cover to help protect the zippers during transportation, and a solid velcro strip has been added to the entire length of the lower portion of the front cover to help keep the cover secured. When the cover is rolled up there are now five velcro tabs (instead of three), that will help to prevent the cover from coming loose when its rolled up. Finally, the graphic on the front features the ProTek R/C checkered flag graphic, with a ProTek R/C logo on the rear flap.
The ProTek R/C P-8 super hauler bag was designed from the ground up for 1/8th scale buggy racers. The bag has space on top under a covered flap for storing all your tools, a place on the back for your setup board and storage compartments on the side for storing your setup equipment or other tools.
Inside the bag has three layers of drawers, with four split draws on the bottom (two each side by side above each other) and one large drawer on the top. These are the newer style Hauler Bags that have plastic inner boxes. The large drawer on the top is large enough to hold a 1/8th scale buggy with wing and wheels attached!
In addition, it is also very easy to tow the bag around the track as it features a heavy duty retractable handle and smooth trolley wheels. Also included is a carrying strap that can be moved out of the way to access tools in the top compartment, or adjusted to provide easy carrying of the bag.

I contacted A-Main and they stepped up immediately and replaced my bag with a new one. Once I contacted them and sent some pics of the damage, the only questions they had was where to send the replacement. They sent a UPS call tag so I wasn't even out any money on the shipping. So, the customer service portion of this is top notch.
On to the hauler bag...I really like it. The tool compartment on top is large enough to hold all the tools you need for a day at the track. There's a large flat pocket on the back of the hauler for your setup board. The front flap securing the 5 interior drawers has velcro to hold it up and out of the way at your pit. The drawers are well built and large enough. You could easily fit a 1/10 scale car in the large drawer on the top, 1/8 scale or short course would be a tight fit. But if you're like me and don't haul your cars inside the "hauler" bag, it's a great drawer to put tires in.
Construction is top notch, customer service is second to none.
One of the zipper broke the first week.
The top drawer does not slide easy. (hangs up on the rivets that hold the slider for the t -handle)
The carrying handle ripped out of the side of the bag. (cannot lift the bag any more)
The second zipper broke after about a month of use.
I did not expect it to be this delicate.
Dissapointed that the quality was not better..
Amain emailed me back and is sending me another bag, no questions asked.. That says a lot, they think it was just a bad run or maybe just a faulty zipper. Either way they are taking care of it and I trust that it was just something out of the ordinary. My last review was a little harsh and I wanted to be fair. Amain can't be beat and I will continue to buy all of my stuff from them.. -//- Save your $!!! I ordered this on 3-9-10 and used it about 4 times with 10th scale TC, indoors(not 8th scale buggy) and in that short time the front zipper has ripped over half way up, the top is weak and sags into the top drawer even w/o anything in the top!! I was expecting a lot more for the near $200 I spent on it. I am waiting on amain to get back with me since they own protek so we'll see how that goes. Go with the Team Magic or Racers Edge haulers over this one.
My only gripe is the pull out handle seems a bit flimsy and my hauler weighs about 70lbs with all my stuff in it. I feel the handle may bend after hauling it over some rough terrain. Time will only tell.
Other than that, I do recommend the Protek Hauler to any Racer needing something to haul all your RC parts and tools.
I can also strap my buggies at the top if my drawers are used up. Overall bag is big enough with enough compartments to store all my equipment and it’s extremely competitive in price!
