    Summit stand?

    Well I purchased a Purple pit tech deluxe car stand, which was falsely advertised to support all 1/10 and 1/8th cars and trucks. Well, it just slid right underneath my summit with space in between the stand and my summit body lol. Bad feedback left.

    What do you all use for a stand?

    Just cut up some framing timber they use on houses and screwed them altogether and then put a wider base on it just for extra stability.


    The only thing wrong with this is that it is too wide and i can't open the battery bay doors completely.
    If the summit can go through; its not deep enough

    Build a lift for the base of the stand
    A real stand has to be worth a bit of effort.i hear what you are "saying"though.

    I wanna do something like that so it supports the full length of the summit. When it only holds the middle the summit slides all around the place and it is a real pain.

    Really like the wooden one above. Nice job. For a simple and quick stand, go to your local hardware store and buy some PVC pipe, T-connectors, and elbows. For a few dollars you can have enough pieces to make several stands. Easy to cut with a hacksaw and you can design the shape you want easily. I usually don't even glue them as they slide together and hold well enough without it. Then you can take them apart and change shape as you need to.

    Attach a lazy susan bearing to the top and a small piece of plywood on top of the bearing and you now have a swiveling work stand.

    I have to admit I don't have one but I do want one of these amazing stands by AJsMachine:

    The trailer on the home page is amazing too but may be small for the Summit.

    Why can't I come up with these things! I need to start thinking outside of the box!

    I don't know about all yours but mine stands just fine all by itself

    Lol

    I use a coffee can, i have a couple other stands for my stuff but the summit is too big for either of them.

    You are right, anything else is a pain.
    My stand does support the full length. At the front side I added even a "nose" (you can hardly see it) to give additional stability. I added a screw at the bottom who fits precisely into the whole of the summit. Like this my summit cannot slip away. I use the full stand as well to transport it in my car.
    It takes a bit of time to adapt all the pieces of wood to the form of the summit. But it's worth it.

    I made one out if 3/4" Irrigation Pipe and Fittings. I think it cost me about $25, but I didnt use any glue. Which is good because I made for my ERBE but use it for my Summit more. Took me about an hour, and works pretty good too. Can put my trucks right side up or upside down.

    Has someone bought one of these? Wouldnt the servo guards get in the way?

    Nah i wouldn't bother buying anything. Custom is best. And yes it looks like it would hit the servo guards, even round the short way.
    When i built mine i had to cut it shorter so it fits between where the skid plates start rising up to go over the bulkheads.
    So mine is just a bit shorter than the middle skid plate/driveshaft cover.. what ever you want to call it.

    Most of AJs are custom. If you think home-made is best, you haven't seen these.

    Made this stand for my slash awhile back, works good for my summit aswell, just slide it up and tighten the set screw and the wheels clear and it holds it stable even when removing wheels, no tipping.

    Your right. Only looked at the link you put up. i have now been through them all and they are pretty cool and i would now say home made is not the best especially for looks but i was sort of thinking that home made stuff can be made totally custom to what you want. Suppose you can add to these stands if you need to.
    I still don't think i would spend that much getting a stand but yes i will have to agree they look well made.

    I made this in school for my revo.

    I have since adapted it to have interchangeable top pads depending on wich rc I'm working on.

    It's excessive I know, but its what I do. When you tinker as much as I do, you gotta have a stand.

    Never occured to me to try my Summit on my AJ's stand.
    It does fit, it tucks up nicely to the servo guards, its well balanced
    with approxamately 2 1/4 inches tire clearance.

    Works like this:




    Does not work like this: Teeters side to side on the skid plates




    The black knob allows the chassis plate to lock in place or rotate 360 degrees,
    and theres a gutter in the base plate to catch runaway screws

    recycle - use old boxes such as hard disk box


    some of the ones posted above look really nice!

    btw when someone advertises it as being compatible with ALL 1/8 and 1/10 in all honesty I think the summit is not the same size as anything else in its scale. I have 1/8 buggies which are absolutely dwarfed by the summit.
