Default Revolve RC Workstation?

Anybody seen this yet? They are the title sponsor for the electric classes at the Psycho Nitro Blast in Georgia. They look interesting! Anybody seen or used one yet?

Noticed that too and also never heard of them..

Stand looks good but EXPENSIVE..

Even the AJS Machine one's aren't that much.. granted the swivel on angle, and the AJS just spins..

Just went to their site again and they've added stuff from this morning by the looks. Seems like they just launched.

I happen to be lucky enough to already have one of these stands. And I'll be the first to tell you the design and quality is first class, I know that the price might seem high to some. But when the bulkhead alone cost $50 plus the 6061 aluminum, anodizing, machining, and a stand that will last your whole R/C career. That not a bad price. Best of all it's 100% made in the USA ... No more looking silly at the track with your car in your lap.

I have to admit, the price is crazy for a car stand, but DAMN THAT LOOKS NICE!!!! I have two car stands, one is one of those cheap duratrax spinning plastic ones that you get from Hobby People and the other one is a simple wooden block that's painted cool. I find myself using the block more because sometimes you need to have the ability solidness of being able to press down hard on it when doing things like snapping ball cups in etc. My Duratrax one just doesn't feell like it'll stand up to that. How about this one? I like how it'll hold the car in place and today when I had to take the rear end off of my 22 to change out a broken A-arm, I could see something like this being really handy.

I got one at Psycho Nitro also.

It's sturdy. I had a Duratrax and thew that away. Big Losi 1/8 scale E-buggy goes on it really well. Holds it in place. You can wrench on it as hard as you want. RC car driver had it on their website last week. My car now never goes to a table. Straight onto my stand. Very few times so far have I had to take it off and do something. Plain and simple. It just works. It's pricey. I could have gotten a ton of parts for it but when you have that extra hand free while working on it you'll be thankful you bought it. You won't have to buy another ever! The only thing I'm going to need to buy is a small plate for my short courses and 1/10 scale buggies. I may just get 2 more stands.

If anyone has some pics of it being used with a 1/10 buggy or ST, I would love to see them. I'm quite interested in buying one, I just need a bit more reassurance that it's all I think it should be. Thanks
