I have been making pit buddies for a little while now with the plan to be offering them on this forum which I will be doing very soon. In the mean time I have made a few up for friends and have a couple going spare that I am selling to fund my next lot of materials. These two remaining pit buddies I am hoping to sell at Coventry this weekend, if not NDOR the following weekend.
These pit buddies are the lightest, strongest and cheapest you will find. They are made from 6mm polyprop plastic which is virtually indistructable and will not bend in heat or be brittle in extreme cold. They have the usual holes for fuel bottle, glow start and tools with scope to make personal additions. There is a velcro strap to secure down your starter box and will be supplied with five lugs for you to fit to your starter box.
Thanks for looking there will be more of these available in a couple of weeks time. Price TBC (around 30 quid posted) looking for 25 quid each for the two for sale now.
Below is a picture of my pit buddie to illustrate how the lugs fit to secure the starter box (note my pit buddie is different to those above as its prototype).

When asked if these pit buddys are stronger than other plastic ones available I always reply that you could run over them in a car and that they would still be usable. So heres me putting my money where my mouth is:
And afterwards still usable with minimal damage:
