    CPVC.. Its a bit smaller than PVC. Ive actually made 2 out of CPVC (my Revo and Jato) and 1 out of PVC (for my neighbors Revo)

    Parts list:
    10 ft CPVC
    8 90* Elbows
    8 "T" fittings
    PVC Glue

    The Bottom is slightly larger than the Top for stability, and when upside down, the rollbar is about 1/2" off the surface. Keeps the car off the table, and the wife out of my hair

    Thanks, yes I painted it.. Just for a better looking peice
    Dimentions of
    Top Level: 17.25" X 7.75"
    Bottom Level: 20" X 10"
    Height: 4.125"

    Length could be an inch or 2 shorter to fit the Jato better, but I made them both to fit a Revo bumper to bumper Heres pics of both of them:

    yes 1/2" pipe.

    As for the Patent, thought about selling them, but throw up a picture and anyone that has ever glued anything together can make one from looking at the pic. I make enough play money selling Revo stuff on eBay (for now)

    Ill let you have the Jato patent.. LOL Mines a universal Revo Jato stand, yours fits a Jato (length) Get the right cutters, and you can slice right through PVC like scissors (I use the wifes small pruning sheers) and can make a stand in about 15 mins or so with no dusty mess!

    Quite a few people have. Search the T-Maxx forum and you'll see a few designs and write-ups.
