Dnano set up board

When Kyosho made this board for the Dnano, they made these holes in it that looked like they were intended for a car stand to keep the wheel's off the ground while running it. But no such part's were included, so, I made my own. Here you can see underneath the board where it look's like they ment to have something here. So, I found a pair of screw's that fit this hole and screwed theme in place.

The screws alone aren't enough to balance the car, so, a platform needed to be made.

Here is a peice of plastic from an old part's bin that will be used for the platform. Line up the holes, and drill.

Holes drilled.

Next, cut the platform out of the peice of plastic.
Here is the platform I made.

Car sitting on new platform.

Then, to finish it off and make it pretty, I used heat shrink tubing to cover the screws,


Finally, to finish it off and to give the platform some grip, I took a peice of very fine sandpaper, and glued it ontop.
Here's the finished product.

It's a shame Kyosho didn't provide this already, but it was fun to make my own.

Well, the previous board didn't work so well. It was too small and when you ran the car, the vibration's caused the car to simply fall off. Not very usefull when setting it up and working on it. So, I made a much, much better peice. I took the battery cover off the dumby chassis from the Mini-Z series, drilled a couple of holes, and mounted four screw's ontop of the board. The four screws are to keep the car in place while reving up the motor. This set up work's brilliantly! And look's a lot cooler too!



You can see where the screws were strategically placed.
I also covered the screws with shrink-wrap tubing to protect the car from getting scratched.



Please, let me know what you think.

I like it, looks good and functional.

I see the magnifying glass has a light on it and as I found from you guys, there are magnets in the slots. Still pretty tough to justify $84 for me to have a pretty pit board. I'm getting older and have trouble seeing (dNano great choice<g>) and I am using a plastic cafeteria food tray i've had for years. It is big to spread out and has edges all around to catch fleeing parts

I have a very nice, light, carbon fiber honeycomb board I made for my 1/8 scale with built in neo magnets... but I love the insurance of the edges on the tray

I find the magnifying glass actually more in the way then helpfull. But the platform I made for it makes working on it alot easier.
If I can find a peice of carbon-fiber sheet big enough, I might make a better looking platform. For now, this is VERY functional! The car no longer slides off when you run the motor.
