See: Answer-RC

Answer-RC Distribution have introduced the new Team Davis pit buddy. This has become the default choice for racers over the years, but its always been a question of where to get one if you dont race at the same tracks as the guy who makes them. Hand laid fiberglass means they are strong yet light and come attached with straps of the right length. The Team Davis pit buddy comes in red color and features one large filler bottle hole but many people drill extra holes for a few select tools and glow start to take in the pit lane.
