We have a lot to be thankful for this year, mainly that we are live and that we are seeing and let’s just end with that, but seriously. I hope you have a you guys, have a good, safe holiday and get some quality rc’ing done. I know i am, but today i’m gon na show you guys something with black friday coming shopping season, something to give that special, rc friend of yours, meaning yourself a present. They might not have one yet, and it is right here, it’s the eco power stamped aluminum car stand Music. Okay, why do you need a car stand? If you leave your vehicles on the rack like i do, you might develop some flat spots in your foam. Your tires that can be avoided with one of these, but you need a bunch of these. For me, i just have too many cars. Second thing is when you are working on your vehicle wouldn’t, it be nice if you didn’t have to turn it over. Uh turn turn turn turn if it did it for you and i’ll show you guys in a second and third, when you are running your testing, your steering your anytime, you test your motor. You touch your motor, your esc, whatnot. That thing might just run away out of the table. It could get dangerous, but i haven’t had one in a while, because the one i saw were the same as what i used to use 20 years ago, the the duratrax ones and they’re expensive and they’re.
Not that good, this one is not cheap, but it’s. Quite good and i’ll show you why so what it does it’s a stamped piece of aluminum, so very strong. Just like your the stand on your your apple monitor or apple computer it’s, this material, it can withstand a lot of weight rubber feet, so it doesn’t slide around on you foam. So it protects your vehicle, a a deeper center section, so it can accommodate more vehicles with you know, with your links and whatnot and holes for your uh, an extra use for your shocks, even shock, shafts right here so but the real guts of the of the System is the the rotating system it’s an index it’s a ball it’s a ball bearing so two two sealed bearings that are quite big, very durable, but it’s indexed as well check that out so 45 degrees eight different spots, and it is a godsend. You could really work on your vehicle, so it’s indexed by a spring loaded ball bearing right there and you can take it off. I think i will for it for this video, because i have another great upgrade idea uh for this thing, but what i’m going to show you now is how it operates and how different types of vehicles fit. Okay, so first we have this vehicle, doesn’t really fit, but hey. Why not huh so first things: first we’re going to use the four wheel drive jalon day, two with land rover hard body.
So you you don’t wan na turn this over on its head. When you’re changing your wheels, so let’s say: we’re changing wheels boom Music boom. Just like that, and let me tell you it’s so much more convenient using this and then you work on the next one. You just don’t realize the utility that you’ll see every day. So the wheelbase, as you can see this one – i forgot what the wheelbase is, but it’s barely just clears the stand. So i the stand is not huge for this reason and it’s high four and a half inches quite stable, but it does need to rest on something uh, oh right there. It is centered! Look at that thing. So next thing we have is my bronco that i’ve been working on ultimate mod, so a little bit tight, because i i made a tire super big, you know, but it does manage to rotate and easy enough to change the tires work on the vehicle i’m. Putting lights on this right now, but check that out huh the boom racing, so some vehicles are a little bit tilted if there’s, no chassis, it’s, just a bunch of links like a lot of our crawlers it’s a little harder to fit it doesn’t quite rest. On on the stand, but not too bad, so this looks like the perfect vehicle for it. It’S the jeep gladiator, oh yeah, so where did the tents are useful? Is so you can actually work on it without it just moving too much on you and it requires just the amount, the right amount of tension that it stays and but it’s easy to move as well, so nice indexing.
I think that they did so there you go 6×6. I put my charger in the front to balance it it’s strong enough. It just has to be balanced right. You know six six wheels, six stars to change, it’s, a pain in the rear. Well, there we go. The balance point for you and it’s quite easy to put another block on the bottom. If you want it higher, but it is pretty high. 4.5 inches it’s a lot to look at huh. Oh yeah, you guys know what vehicle this is. The chevy blazer arma creighton blx or not blx exb, not bad huh. So if you don’t, like the indexing uh, just one screw here, take that off put that bearing aside – and this will just rotate freely on two ball bearings and what we’re gon na do since we’re rc reviews we’re gon na mod it we’re gon na put a Servo here, like a winch servo and then a press of a button it’s just gon na rotate, so good for painting good for her gallery. Shots, uh and whatnot you’re like in a photo shoot or on a video shoot, maybe painting your vehicle. What better way than have a swiveling car stand? What not so there you go, not something you think of right away. Investing but it’s gon na it’s gon na stay with you forever and if you ever um wanted to sell it, it’ll it’ll hold its value. The other two things i’d recommend to you guys uh, is this an xl mat super cool, two sided nice soft surface, very easy to work on.
It has all the little measuring things, and this is an eco power mat that i’ve used. I was at first i was disappointed, it’s it’s, nice and big with a lot of compartments, there’s a compartments there, but then it’s a hard surface, and i said, ah man – i don’t wan na work on that. But then, if you put the mat on top of it match made in heaven, so there you go, um i’ll also show you a link, for this say: it’s a powered screwdriver, much more racing. I think where you you get, you get all the leg.
