Default "The Stand"

I made this from extruded aluminum, it is 36" tall. The top plate swivels 360 deg and is 20" long by 8" wide so it works with both the 5ive-t and my 1/10 scale rigs. The shelf has lexan in it. I am working on adding a plate to hold the shocks during rebuild. It is easy to add or remove attachments as it uses T-nuts to go together. It's a little big for transport as it does not fold but I have a small platform that I usually take with me to the track that lifts the truck so the wheels are off the ground, I will add pictures of that one latter.

Beautiful!!!
The only issue I can see is having a flat bottom across the 4 base legs .
If the ground is not flat it will wobble.
May want to look at mounting the feet at an angle or putting blocks that are a few inches tall under the end of each leg.
Doing this will make it more stable if the ground is not perfectly flat.

May also look at putting holes in the top platform so you can get at the chassis screws.

Again, BEAUTIFUL JOB!!

Here it is after the shock holder was added and some pegs to hold the wheels. I tried to edit the above post but couldn't do it with taptalk.

Thanks for the input about the base. I will have to see what I can come up with to make it adjustable.
