    Smile XMAXX Work stand

    Hi Everyone looking to buy or make a simple work stand for the XMAXX. Any ideas for both?
    Rotation would be good , as i plan to use my work bench as a base. https://traxxas.com/forums/images/icons/icon7.png

    Perhaps something like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10-Rotatin...1%26rkt%3D1%26

    Mount it on another suitable stand like this? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Speaker-St...oAAOSw5cNYbnD4

    Or get something like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Keyboard-P...8AAOSwqu9U-JrQ

    I use this. It doesn't rotate but gets the truck up in a working position. I've been thinking about adding a wooden base with a lazy Susan.

    I did add padded foam where the chassis sits and then put black electrical tape over it to so it doesn't rub the paint off and keeps the truck from moving as much. I got this idea from another post I saw online and really works well.

    Does it not work with the X? I thought I seen some members using the same stand?

    There's also that area in "Support" here on site where we can submit ideas.

    I built the PVC stand already. Also I finally went up 2 Depot and picked up that RIGID stand. Imy gonna try and figure out a way 2 make it swivel 360 degrees.

    I purchased this from integy. They are normally $109 but I purchased a scratched one for half price. Really good quality and honestly the scratches are minimal. Good buy if you ask me. I think including shipping I paid around $71

    I just made mine from some 2x4's. Doesn't spin or anything, but it cradles the truck pretty good.

    I use a kids stool very similar to this for wrenching and storage for both the X and the Summit.



    I'll try and remember to take a pic tonight.

    Here's my custom X-Maxx build on my State of the art stand. I originally bought this for my max trucks back in the day and fabricated a center Alum skid plate on X-Maxx and wow it's Awesome!!
