I think some rc company did put some out they were advertising that it will stay level at any height, I wonder if this guitar foot rest would stay level.

Hmmm. There's a Guitar Center close to my house. I'll have to go check one of those stands out. I should post a pic of my current car stand - three pieces of 2x4 screwed to a 1x8 base. I catch heat regularly at the track about that.

I ask the seller if this stand stay level in any hight, he replay - "no
the height adjusts while the angle does"
. But There is a few different brands in amazon (all of them less than 20.00) that may do the job like someone mention before. This stand is the cheaper one of all of them, maybe the 15.00 ones stay level.

I have one that cost 8 bucks and it does sit at a slight angle. At the lower heights the angle is less than at the taller settings. I actually like the angle since it gives a little option to how you sit the car. With the front of the car facing you, it can be angled down for a better view, same from the back.

I am thinking about drilling out the rivet holding the legs together and making a few more holes so I can adjust the angle or make it flat just by moving the pivot point.

I was thinking doing the same thing, will be a easy fix.
