Default Car stand and chassis tweak

Just entered the 1/10th mm world of electric touring cars.

Received my "obligatory" Hudy setup station.

When you read e.g. the Hudy setup guide and similar for 1/10 onroad cars, the first thing you must check is that you have a flat chassis. This is the basis for a perfect setup.

Here the other day I was replacing a spur gear on my TC. The upper deck was off and I placed the car on the car stand (wheels off). I noticed that the chassis was ever so slightly bending downwards, because the front and end of the car is not supported by the stand, and because the upper deck was not on. This made me realize how the car is "hanging" on the car stand, because the whole of the chassis is not supported.

Normally I have my TC's on the car stand at home, when not in use.

But isn't the best way to "park" the car to place it flat on the setup board, so the whole chassis is supported instead of "hangnig" it on the car stand?
